    Found a article about Married life as per Buddhism. It covers almost all aspects of married life. Even though written 25 centuries ago, if we read it makes us feel how forward thinking Buddha was. For e.g the below, even though written in old times, it did not support the conventional view. The link to entire article is A Happy Married Life: A Buddhist Perspective

    Parental Control

    Many parents try to keep their married children under their control. They do not give due freedom to them and tend to interfere with a young married couple's life. When parents try to control their married son or married daughter and want them to follow their way of life strictly, this will create a lot of misunderstanding between the two generations as well as unhappiness between the couple. Parents may be doing it in good faith due to love and attachment towards the children, but in so doing, they are inviting more problems to themselves and to the children.

    Parents must allow their children to shoulder the responsibilities of their own lives and families. For example: if some seeds are dropped under a tree, plants might grow after sometime. But if you want those plants to grow healthy and independent you must transplant them to open ground somewhere else to grow separately, so that they are not hampered by the shade of the parent tree.

    Parents should not neglect the ancient wisdom based on advice given by religious teachers, wise people and elders who have developed a knowledge of the world through their own trial and errors.

    Buddha is nothing but a "way of Life" he never promoted God as a figure, for him life was/is all about learning and behaving, he was a Master, truely Enlightened
