Marriage is necessary for those who in live in relationship are likely to go back on their promises. Otherwise, it is not necessary.

People should have some basic instincts to get married.....
The couple should also folow give and take policy ......with understanding.
Those who fear of adjustments with certain limits need not marry.
Marriage is not compulsion...it is co operation to complete life cycle.

Absolutely. The more dowry deaths I see, the more I think those ladies would have been better off unmarried. Although it is an option, it is an option not many choose for their own reasons but society pressure is definitely one reason for girls especially. and ironically, there is always an undercurrent of it being an unspoken law. if a woman is say 28-30 yrs and unmarried one thinks there is something "wrong" with her that's why she's not married. They certainly don't see it as an option that she has chosen. I'm talking about India here.

Well we all have our own views,and everyone is entitled to their views,just as you are to yours.The concept of marriage was excellent thats why whole of da world accepted it in ancient days.Marriage was meant to make ourselves responsible.
The people who are leading a good married life will never welcome such views but those who leading a bitter married life of witnessing d same anywhere will say its not necessary.
So its not different than d story of GRAPES ARE SOUR :))
What to do n what not to do is ones personal choice.I saw your comments to other answers in which you are insisting on forceful marriages but that is a different issue according to me.You cant blame d whole institution for it.
How to deal with it depends on d person who is married or getting married.You said that life will end after giving birth to kids but many people get numerous joy in taking care of d kids.Taking him to amusement parks,zoo,cinema,circus or other places can be a life time opportunity for someon ...more

Marriage is always optional. It was never mandatory. Even Bhishma Pitamah did not opt for it in those olden days.

It depends on the culture you live in. Marriage not only allows you to go for physical relationship legally but it also free yourself from the fear of becoming alone at the sunset of your life. Live in relationships continues till the physical appeal is there. But marriage continues with you till your end. It gives you not only financial support but also a security feeling that when you would old who is going to look after you.

As you must be aware that the relation of a husband and wife becomes that of a mother and son or you can say that of sister and brother when they reaches their old age.

Marriage should be a compulsory institution. it is necessary
