    I personally think it's the relationship and connection between two people that is based on trust, mutual understanding, similar beliefs, interest and most importantly respect for each other for each other's past and present.

    Sleeping with only one person and having offspring with him for whom you need to watch and guard, as well as help and receive help from your new family. This is the main idea. All the rest is garbage, contrived romanticism, or stupid idiots who think only far-fetched stereotypes.

    The much longer and far more accurate version of the truth about marriage, from the Art of Marriage, a poem by the American Poet Wilferd A. Peterson.

    Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens,
    A good marriage must be created.
    In the art of marriage, the little things are the big things.
    It is never being too old to hold hands.
    It is remembering to say, “I love you,” at least once a day.
    It is never going to sleep angry.
    It is at no time taking the other for granted;
    The courtship should not end with the honeymoon,
    It should continue through all the years.
    It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
    It is standing together facing the world.
    It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.
    It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude
    Of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy.
    It is speaking words of appreciation
    And demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
    It is not looking for perfection in each other.
    It is cultivating flexibility, patience,
    Understand and a sense of humor.
    It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
    It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow.
    It is finding room for the things of the spirit.
    It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
    It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal,
    Dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal.
    It not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner,
    It is discovering what marriage can be, at its best.

    Marriage is a serious bond that an adult is ready for. Trust, love and togetherness. Building a solid relation with a new person that is not your blood relation and taking it strong until the end is not a play.

    30yr old toddlers should not marry. Its for 18+ adults. Adults being the key word.

    vell written. I would like to know how important is being a good cook to have a happy marriage? I am not a good cook. Bit on the other hand some dishes do turn out good. Sometimes easy dishes don't turn out that good. My husband wants finger licking good tasty food. This is a source of constant stress to me. It's very heart breaking when I toil in the kitchen and my husband calls up and asks what did I cook and then gets something from out. I have tried my level best and now I am tired. He is very difficult to please. What upsets me more is my mil who is living with us enjoys it when my husband dislikes something I do. His behaviour of ordering food or saying he is full or eating from out is very demotivating to me.

    When someone asks me what is for lunch or dinner, I've learnt to answer in one word: food.

    @SFY Eating out, otRdering in, cooking -- should all be combined. Who cooks does not matter -- hired cook, mother/mil/live-in older relative, husband, wife , anyone can cook. Happy marriage would have a non-messy cook. Ordering from out is part of maintaining a non-messy kitchen. If it is a mess, it is not a home.
