The Social Institution of Marriage

Marriage is a social and legal institution that you should handle with great care. It sometimes is very positive, and sometimes very negative. How do you know? That’s the problem, you never never know beforehand.  Take a look at some comments about this controversial institution.

  • Marriage is not a word. It is a sentence—a life sentence. 
  • Marriage is an institution in which a man loses his Bachelor’s Degree and the woman gets her Masters.
  • There was this man who muttered a few words in the church and found himself married. A year later he muttered something in his sleep and found himself divorced. 
  • Son: How much does it cost to get married, Dad? Father: I don’t know son, I’m still paying for it. 
  • Son: Is it true? Dad, I heard that in ancient India, a man doesn’t know his wife untill he marries. Father: That happens everywhere, son, everywhere! 
  • There was a man who said, “I never knew what happiness was until I got married…and then it was too late!” 
  • They say when a man holds a woman’s hand before marriage, it is love; after marriage, it is self-defense. 
  • When a newly married man looks happy, we know why. But when a ten-year married man looks happy, we wonder why. 
  • A husband is living proof that a wife can take a joke.

Are you married.  No?  Think about it before taking the plunge.  Good day.
