Raise social status
Being married also has social benefits for both men and women. Marriage or being in a romantic relationship is a highly valued social status, so it will make people feel good about themselves because of the value society places on it. A society grows through a network of the value society place on it. A society grows through a network of relationships which are commonly entwined and mutually supporting. Every relationship is a whole-hearted commitment to support and to protect others in a group or community.
Marriage plays a very important part in this strong web of relationships of giving support and protection. A good marriage should grow and develop gradually from understanding and not impulse, from true loyalty and not just physical pleasure. In marriage, each partner develops a complementary role, giving strength and moral courage to one another, each manifesting a supportive and appreciative respect of the other’s skill in caring and providing for a family. Marriage gives support and love and if that support and the secured feelings are not there, especially in a woman, then it becomes difficult for a person to cope with the adversities of life.
