Marriage is a bond between two soul, to get married is a symbol of love for those who really loves each other. But there are some marriages having no love, they only does compromise then it is called as trap. Marriage is not trap but it become trap when we make it worst by misunderstanding.

During marriage two family are come to the bond. Marriage helps 2 know about our responsibilities towards family and society. If he/she is comfortable with their partner then they should get married. And think positive about your relation rather than just thinking of it as marriage is a social trap.

Hi friends.

In my point of view marriage is not at all a social that all depends on the way we think. In our olden days they respect to the marriages and they were bound to that relation ship they respect more than us. When one got married they both have to respect their ideas and views. In some families wife dominates husband some case reverse then then the problem raises among them.

Hello everyone,

Getting married or not is totally a personal decision, if two persons wants to spend their rest of life together and want to get tied in a bond in front of the society then marriage is a great option. Also because of different situations in life one gets diverted and take wrong decisions for e.g. due to a dispute a person starts thinking of breaking up with that person, however this is a decision of running away from a situation, marriage is a bond that reminds the person of the responsibility they have towards each other specially in the difficult situations in life.

Also marriage keeps a person focused and not get involved with any other person due to distractions like money, sex, physical beauty etc. a marriage also creates a legal relationship in front of the government and helps persons being together will being together with someone.

Still, to marry or not is totally a personal decision and one should only marry when he/she is sure of accepting the person and spending rest of their life together. And in case they come to realise that situations become worse and there in no sense in being together, then they can go always go for a divorce too.

I think as all said marriage is not a social trap I totally agree with it. According to me marriage is the greatest feeling in your life. It gives you a life partner who always with you at every point of time. You have someone who understand you. You share your problem with him/her. After marriage your family will enhanced. You faced many challenges in daily life which is useful to live your life happily. I learn many things like social responsibility.

It will be a trap if you don't know the meaning of marriage it is lovely relation. Women have the same rights like mane. But same man does not understand that. They think women are nothing. Every should have there ego, ego is good but there are two types of ego positive and negative. Always have positive ego. Some people does not give respect to women. This is not good.

A another point I like to add in this discussion that child marriage is a social trap. In ruler areas child marriage is done. Which is very bad thing. Marriage is a relation of feelings and responsibility and if you are not that much mature to take that responsibility how you survive in society they destroy two life.

People should get married only if they feel like getting married. They shouldn't do it as an obligation to society or their families. If he or she feels like to be with their partner for the rest of their life and wants to get married, then it wouldn't be a trap. But if they are doing it for the sake of others, traditions or societal pressure then of course it would be a social trap.

Definitely marriage is not a social trap. Because it's a connection between two in their hearts small small problems can rise in the life. But they are the part of the life. If there is no trouble in our life there won't be any understanding between a pair. Problems can change a persons life in a good manner as well as bad also.

Hello everyone,

In my point of view, no one thinks that marriage is a social trap. As we all know that there is a saying that "marriages are made in heaven". In reality, marriage is a personal commitment, relationship and bonding between two people. But of course, it is the responsibility of a woman to build her family in such a way that she makes that family in a unique way and it is also the responsibility of a man who takes his family to a stage from where it looks like an ideal one throughout the society. So, I think that marriage makes our life memorable and beautiful if no one forces to one's interest.

Marriage is not a social trap because everyone is fond of a partner for life. Its very hard to spend life without a partner but there are certain cases it seems to be social trap girls of our society especially are targeted to get married even they have not achieved puberty. Especially our elders they have the vision to get there family daughters to marry as soon as possible I agree marriage is a pure relationship.

But we should not target innocent souls to be in a circle of such big responsibilities as marriage when they don't know what it is all about.

Yes, I am agreed with @Rocky as he said that we are treasure of our family. We are today because our parents got married. It's not matter if they have disturbance for taking some reasons for a moment but after sometime it gets become settle. Our parents be happy by seeing us because they got us after marriage.

After marriage we share our problems, emotions, difficulties, trouble and future responsibilities. If we don't marriage, we cannot get anything. But, partner should be true. If your partner is not loyal, you will get ruined.

The people imagine this as a curse and it is if your partner is disloyal. In my opinion we should marriage after choosing a true partner.

I think marriage will be a social trap if partners are towards each other. Otherwise things change when the partners feel that they must abide by some social rules as has been maintained by their elders.

If the partners want their marriage to be a personal affair then social etiquette need not be maintained and things would not turn out to be a social trap. Many would scorn at them. But they are stand up for each other and are strong themselves. So all social scorns turns into mere dust.

However if the partners feel that they must take their marriage to that social level then things really change and that results into social trap for both the partners.

Hi friends,

After read a lot of component on this topic its a ridiculous if anyone say marriage is a social trap.

I totally oppose it. How marriage can be a social trap? However there is a lot of misunderstanding in marriage life, but its does not mean that its a trap. Marriage is a just a new life of any individual, it comes with lot of desires, happiness, emotions.

On the other hand if we see the cons of marriage life, there is some cumbersome also which is just due to lack of comparability, understanding, patience.

In my view sometime marriage is a social trap. Ya, it's totally depend on people. There should be some social rule. That without taken permission from bride & groom no one can tie them. After 18 many of family want to marry their child as soon as possible. It is not good.

They didn't think about their child future. They think if our daughter getting married soon, They (family) are free from a big responsibility. We need change this type of thinking.

Marriage is lifetime event which decide the rest of life to lead in peaceful way by getting right partner.

No. Marriage is not social trap:

1. The persons entering into the relationship are bind physically and emotionally thus routing the couple to establish a spiritual relationship, which outweighs the physical relationship. An emotional wavelength of individuals has to be altered, to sustain the relationship which sprouts and spreads sporadic joy forever in their life.

2. The feeling of being binded with a person makes another feel strong that he has a soul mate, with which he can share everything. Sense of belonging inspires the individual to perform their obligations in social and professional areas.

3. Rituals and customs establish public relations with friends and relatives that keep an individual strong psychologically.

4. On health perspective, having only one committed partner will keep a person away from the contagious diseases communicated through physical contact.

5. The marriages are thought for the sake of life because of which the divorce rate is as low as 1.1% and it assures the compensation like dowry and ensures the social, astrological compatibility of the couple and make sure that the bond is going to attain permanency. Indian marriages especially have such a great combination of individual and social bonds.

Yes it is social trap:

1. Certainly marriage is a social trap which a family expects their children to fall in which depletes the total individualistic features by sweeping out the personal freedom.

2. A man is a man first, and then he is a social being. In fact there exists as difference between a person and himself, as there exists the difference between a person to the other person. So how can one simply get into a relationship for which no one can guarantee how the feelings, situation change in the future, which may seek high mortal freedom.

3. Apart from this, there exists domestic violence, dowry system, caste, religion, color and height matching, individual differences which leads to personal dissatisfaction that decompresses personal freedom and kills the valuable life time inspiring to psychological disorders and gets humiliated by the partner, which gives an opinion that marriage makes a man disrupt.

Marriage is not a social trap but it feels like one when it is rushed into either due to parental pressure or just because you have attained the marriageable age and you are expected to do so. Without the right partner, a marriage can many times seem like a social trap.

Patience is the key here. Wait for the right one to come along and give it some time. Know them, their ideals, their likes-dislikes, their social thoughts and if you feel compatible with each other then go for marriage. Marriage can be a beautiful thing when done at the right time with the right person.

Hello everyone,

As per my point of view, Marriage is not social strap, because a happy life required only one thing that is called satisfaction. And about marriage this is the relation of purity which will be maintained with understanding, some respect and sharing caring with love-ones.

Yes, it is also true that this relation some time got destructed with some misunderstanding. But real value or worth of relation, depends how effectively you choose to settle it down.

The imagination of people which lead happy and boring or trap life & the same will be having different means for everyone. This could be overpower with satisfaction. The real worth of life depends on it.

According to me Marriage is not a social trap because it is a wonderful relation between two persons which lasts forever. It depends on the understanding power of the two persons and how they can adjust themselves in difficult situations.

But, nowadays many people do marriages for the sake of money etc and this is causing misunderstanding between the two persons and later divorces are happening due to it because they are not trying to understand each other they are only feeling great than the other person so this problem is coming.

So, if both person is understand equally this problem will not come and both of them can understand each other's feelings also.

Yes I do think that marriage is a social trap. I do feel this because I have seen the people.

Those don't like each other and they are living together for the sack of marriage. I not pessimistic about marriage, I my self a part of big family but what I do feel that most are people living together just for their children and marriage.

They don't really love to each other and they are living with each other for the years, it's ugly to be someone as a husband as a wife if you don't love him or her, for example if you have to be with your classmate for the 5 days with whom you don't like to share your time, it will be just a hell and according to me lot of people are in that hell just because of marriage.

I think marriage is not a bad thing. Because parents can't be with you all the time. So we need someone to support us. Living alone is not safe especially for women in our society. Marriage brings some responsibility towards family and also society.

Life is a trip. It will be more enjoyable if you are blessed with a sincere partner. Find that partner and enjoy each moment in your life. Because value of relationships can't be measured by an instrument.

Marriage is not a social trap, it made by us as a trap we prefer that woman should operate on man's command. She also have feelings, pride and self respect. People oppose dowry but they take it, frankly dowry is like gum which stick on our hair and never gonna removed so forget about this. But both the partner should care each other, believe in each other but also take care about giving some space to breath to get touch with himself or herself.

Woman also take care of her husband my practical experience said that now days girl work under her own mothers command and try to separate man from things which he love (its my practical experience what I am seeing right now) so girl need to understand the feeling of men and same thing apply for man. Marriage is pious bond not be based on compromise, if you live your life with love its become best thing. Woman is not slave she can do anything what she wanted and husband should support this if its right.

Marriage is not a social trap rather It is a beautiful relationship between two souls, two families. No one is self-sufficient unless he/she becomes saint and leaves the social life. One needs support from his partner many times in life, no one else can give it. So it's a unique relationship. Some deepest feeling and emotions can be shared only with a partner, not even with parents.

It's a good part of it that it abide by law. I think it is necessary to abide by law. Otherwise more we'll have more cases of divorce. One takes responsibility to be with his/her partner in every ups downs of life in presence of family. If any does fraud that he/she can be penalized by laws.

Human is a social animal, until he lives socially he needs to have partner who remains with her lifelong, emotionally, physically, spiritually.

Hai buddies!

As far as I am concerned, marriage is a most beautiful, fragile and precious bond that a person ever come across in his/her lifetime. This journey is totally rely in belief. It is the basic ingredient for the successful life. For example, I made a dish, I feel it as mouthwatering dish and tasted it. Here I have three cases.

1. If all the ingredients, masalastuff, food color, its aroma everything mix up in equal proportions, then I say it as delicious dish.

2. If at least one went wrong, I can adjust it somehow by managing.

3. If none of them mix, then I can't taste, I get raged over me for making such a dirty dish.

So this example reflects marriage life-it's all depends on the couple who involved in the bond.

1. If they understand each other, shares their unpleasantly besides ecstatic moments, care for each other. All these make them a lovely pair, most adorable parents to their kids.

2. If at least one case fails, they have to overcome it by spending some time for each other in their busy schedule. They should not let burdens to settle on their happiness.

3. If mutual understanding is not there, it leads to initially anger, then fight, at last world war.

So should not let the marriage a "trap" rather a "tray" with full of love, affection, believing each other, adjustable to situation and finally.

Hi all,

Marriage is a holy custom in India. We should marry at some point in time in our life to make our life circle a complete one. But sometimes we see that people think that after their marriage they will be puppets in the hands of their wife and vice-versa. But it depends on the mentality of your partner whether you will be able to spent your life freely or not. Very often we can see that after marriage the life gets changed and we become more responsible.

If we have a good understanding then nothing can trap us not even the society. And if you talk about privacy then a good husband must not disturb the privacy of his wife and that creates a good mental bonding. On the other hand also an ideal wife will also not try to destroy his husband's privacy. So we must not say that marriage is a social trap. If somehow you are trapped after your marriage then it is your individual problem not the problem of this holy institution called "Marriage".

Hello everyone.

I could not understand why people living in India which is rich in its culture and traditions blame marriage as a trap. Marriage plays a very important role in every individuals life. Due to the impact of movies and other social abuses like dowry youth might have corrupted and giving least importance to marriages. Both the youth and their parents should realize that girls and boys are equal in all aspects and should keep full stop to this dowry system so that we can save our traditions and make one's life beautiful.

Marriage acts not only as a social bond between two people but also between their families. It makes the individual responsible towards their family and also towards their society. It shows the importance of relationships which is vanishing in the present society. Better half gives full life of success.

When Love is unconditional then only it will leads for the two souls to bond together for a life time. In game of life everything has got some rules to play. If we those rules of society or our cultures ; life will be smooth. If you disobey and set your own rules then you need to undergo some suffering it can be just for initial days or lasts for life time also. Consequences cannot be predicted.

The meaning of marriage is different for different class of people in society. Current generation has become sick and girls parents giving priority to.

1) Physical appearance.
2) Monthly salary.
3) Assets the man is holding.

Does this man that a person with all this qualities only should get married ? then I don't think the actual concept of marriage is satisfied.

A guy will prefer girl only if.

1) She looks fair and beautiful.
2) Gives more dowry and basic gold ornaments or assets.

The pathetic situation is the more people are educated more they are expecting.

Friends I request, Those who are going to get married for both guys and girls. Please try to understand what marriage is. Dont try to do business or do shopping.

Good marriages will stabilize the societies. This is major difference between developed countries and India.

In India we are able to see our forefathers or grand grand parents because of this system. I don't say don't give or take dowry, but expect only some has the capacity to give and don't squeeze poor or middle class people.

Middle class people should start revolutionary change by taking oath that guys will not take dowry from poor or middle class families. If some rich families like your profile nothing wrong in they offering you.

Hello friends,

According to me marriage is not a social trap because marriage makes our life complete, it brings in a sense of responsibility towards our family, at this point of time we realize that we need to bring a sort of stability in our life.

Marriage is not only an engagement of a man and a women, but both the partners take vows to support each other though out their life, be with each other at all the circumstances be it good or bad. One is always very close to us with whom we can share our deepest feelings.

Marriage is also a meeting of two families their culture, traditions, festivals.

A successful marriage makes a happy family, which in turn makes a peaceful society and finally a developed Country.

But marriage becomes a social trap when it is done only for a compromise, for money, for some sort of sacrifice or when there is not respect for one's feelings and emotions and their family.

Initially I was not a believer of love, true love is the complete attachment of two soul, I don't understand how people can live without marrying whom they love, I will request to every one please feel the essence of love, if not yet loved wait for real love, and only marry whom you love, no doubt you will be be happy. One thing should not be forgotten that where there is no miner quarrels the relation is not moved by heart it's by mind, so don't bother of that, BE A TRUE LOVER, YOUR BASE OF LOVE SHOULD NOT BE PHYSICAL, IT SHOULD BE EMOTIONAL.

I think, marriage is very special friendship in between the two people. There will be one stage in everyone's life that he/she needs a partner to share his/her happiness, sorrows, feelings, etc. There are some situations in life which he/she can't handle without a partner.

Also there should be mutual understanding between the couple. No one should underestimate other and try to adjust with each others likes/ dislike by doing this life will become very beautiful.

And "marriage will not become Social Trap".

Thank you.

Hello Friends, I agree to all of you.

But I will greatly support to @Ekta who said that Marriage is a bonding between two people, two family, two society, two cultures, which should be handled with care, understanding, trust and love.

According to me, it is the part of management of life. It is great feeling & experience of life which requires understanding & management with partners thinking, their need and also with their past & future.

It helps to youth to become responsible.

If marriage becomes social trap then only the lack of education becomes the reason behind it. Because the criminal cases related to marriage are always founded within the people which are uneducated.

So only because of them, we can not say that marriage is a social trap.

Hello everybody,

Marriage in fact is not a social trap, but it is a social protection to a girl to live in the society. Now a days, it is so difficult to live alone for a girl, even though the confidence and the boldness allows her to live, there is a time where everything fails in one or the other situation.

Marriage is also a safer zone for guys. If taken up with true understanding without any egos, complexes etc. Marriage as said by our ancestors, are made in heaven which continues to live in earth.

Hello friends,

According to me marriage is not a social trap, because it is bond of two relationship thats nothing but two hearts. Parents will not be with us everytime and everywhere, so there is a need of help, being along with us every time for a lifetime, the person who supports always in every aspects, it gives meaning to life by giving a new generation. No one can stay alone for a long time, but many of the people says that they want to be alone, its only because some sort of disturbances in life. It is a place where we find more love and affection after your parents. As I said parents will not stay for ever, so there is need to find same level of love and care from other she/he. Marriage life depends on understanding between each other, there should not be any judgemental.

Relation makes you happy and complete life.

Marriage is surely not a social trap because through marriage we get life partner who stays with us for lifelong, many things may happen many may come and go but life partner stays with us how hard the situation is. For example if we take two persons where one is married and other unmarried we find that married person feels confident than other because he has support from life partner who stays how hard the situation is and this confidence cannot be given my money, status even children may leave some times but life partner does not live. "marriage is bonding two different persons to be as one soul to spend the total life happily".

By marriage we will have one with whom we can share our joy, sad, everything. Some married couples may be unhappy due to their misunderstanding or any other reason but by seeing some cases we cannot say the total system is bad.

I think marriage is a social trap. Today majority people get married just because of status. If they don't get satisfied after marriage they find different partner. It just deludes society. There are many cases where people do adopt live in approach. It's not necessary to impose "MARRIAGE" on two souls. Society should think on it as time changes.

In my view point marriage is not a social trap because of both bride and groom wants privacy and they are also enjoying their life with love and commitment. In present era parents of both bride and groom are giving total privacy so that they are making as a good relation.

But when I look at poor and illiterate societies, due to their more importance to rituals and rigid customs, couple feel that they have been trapped in the name of marriage. They really want to end their marriage, but due to family pressures, they live entire life with sense of deception. In such case, marriage is really a social trap.

I completely believe that marriage is a social trap ! I would like to raise some questions, which I think most of you would agree! Why the person marry anybody in pressure for the sake of society in which we recite? What if the person does not want to have a soul mate and would love to spend his/her whole life for his/her parents? Why is there such a rule/custom made by our own society for d so called marriage concern? Why is a person considered dependent to lean upon somebody, he can also live independently on his own terms ?

'COMPROMISE', 'UNDERSTANDING', 'ADJUSTMENT' etc etc. Why to bring such complicated terms in our lives. We get life only once, I think people are born free and should have right to live and let live others free,

Marriage is a total waste of time, money and still in the worst case I can never see myself compromising each day of my life for anybody!

She has to adjust with a new family. It become like trap for her. Since in laws family do not want to adjust according to bride.

But anyone in this relationship shows indifference or neglects or stop sharing the experiences of their partner then there are chances that the partner feels trapped in marriage.

Two people (family) always there for each other, in good as well as in bad situation, handling all the pros and cons of life. But like every coin has two sides, it may have two sides either.

If the partners are caring, understanding, have trust, love each other, have trust, then its a perfect bonding.

I think marriage is not a social trap but there are some way to become trap. There are many examples, a person gets marry a person who don't know about his/her status. I agree with that marriage is made in havean and allah gives us a partner whose we don't know about her/him. But it becomes respectful and understandable after marriage. There are two kind of marriage. Love marriage and arrange marriage. Arrange marriage is a best way to get our partner. Our parents decide that who will your partner. And it makes toward two families. We aware about him/her. Our parents are more experience to find him or her because they know his family. And according to love marriage, we find our partner and talk to our parents about him or her. They have more aware about marriage and moire experience. So they would contact their family and get to marriage.

So in this way it is not a trap. But a person or his family make relationship in the name of marriage for only dowry system. If they have lure of money. Surely it is a trap because thats relationship is irrespectful for both and it makes many problems like divorse. Likewise love marriages are sometime trap because we fall in love with our partner and want to marry in any situation weather their parents are not ready for marriage, they go to court and gets a court marriage. But when they lives in society there are many reason bei ng asked. Parents are being questioned in society.

People are become irrespectful and arise many question about their marriage. Is this not a trap? Surely it is a trap because we hurt our parents and society, we cannot live with our partner to hurt our parents. So we need to be patience for marriage. A time is fixed for our marriage. So that we need to wait.

So I thank our ancestors for bonding us in a thing like marriage providing us a person who lives or stays with us whole life.

Marriage is something which is prevalent from time immemorial not because it is a social trap but a trap which is used to trap the soul of two human beings socially. I really think that it is the best way to live with someone who is very very special to you. Though some restrictions are there but these are also for the welfare of two souls.

Practically it depends upon you that by which angle you look at it, it is you who make it a social trap or trapless, there are many who are living happily and there are many who fights the very first day. So think it, live it and enjoy it for the rest of life.

Hello there..
I hv read all the comments mentioned before and some of them were very perceptive. What I think that the marriage is not a social trap. If you are calling it a trap that because after the marriage the girl is not allowed to work in offices, she is forced to remain housewife. So i think that is not correct. One individual is not allowing this wife to work outside then it is his personal opinion. If u r saying it is trap because the career of a woman gets destroy coz of marriage then it is also incorrect. there are many examples of women who hav still contributed to the society, even being married. The late Savitribai Phule, Kalpana Chawla and even the actress who still continue with their work after getting married. So, summing all these points i only come to the conclusion that the marriage is not a social trap.

Marriage is a scared bond between not only two person but also between two families even between two cultures and religions.

It is so sacred that in every religion the marriage rituals are performed in front of the respective gods. It redefines a relationship between two person such that they remain with each other in all the ups and downs of each others life.

Be it a love marriage where there are new discoveries in the already familiar relationships or a arranged marriage where there is a start of a whole new relationship, marriage is the most memorable experience of life which separates human being from the biological reproduction in animals.

But, in today's hectic life where is the time for "discoveries in relationships". The general intolerance in our society is having its impact on marriages as well, and we are seeing more and more divorces. For these people marriages have become a social trap.

It is said that marriages are made in heaven, because after that people don't remain alive anymore.

These separations have a highky negative impact not only on the to person but, also on their families, their children and the society on a whole.

The children of separated parents, are subjected to a unbalanced life for no fault of their own. They become frystrated.

We have seen many celebrity marriages too having an abrupt and unhappy end. Yhe very recent being the one between kim kardashian and kris humpries which lasted for 72 days only.

Again, when there is no relation between two people, forget husband - wife relation, they are two completely different people forced to stay under one roof for social obligations ie. Fear of being a point of discuusion that is when marriages become a socila trap.

But, we have to undersatnd that any marriage needs time, patience, compromise and care for each other from each other to sustain.

Marriage is definitely a social trap in my opinion(love or arranged marriage), because its more about inviting problems to yourself(fights and misunderstandings), however the contradiction to this is that a human being has to go through several stages in life like childhood, teenage, adulthood, marriage phase and then old age. In all this stage a human being is trapped with lot of thoughts in mind one such phase is the marriage phase.

In this entire journey in our life we always want to live life, expect lot of things from other, however we fail to fulfill their(the other spouse) expectation and still expect that they have to fulfill all that we want from them.

Death is certain to all, but the way it strikes in uncertain! So until we are alive, we cant lead life alone and hence our elders have made marriage a compulsory thing in our lives.

For a true love, couple should have faith and understanding for each other. And free to live their own life in their own style. Marriage for a girl becomes a trap if she is not satisfied by her new in-law family, she can't even break the relationship as she is bonded to the society.

If everything is going to fine between husband and wife then there is no problem. But if one of them finds their happiness in third person then it turns into a psychic cyclone because he/she can not live with them without going to a painful phase of social rejection. This is just because marriage which this bloody society (man dominated) has made to make woman their private property. Not only woman but man also suffers if caught in same situation.

In my opinion, marriage is not a social trap. Let us look at the advantages of being in a marriage.

1. Life time buddy to share your emotions, problems with: We are a social animal, we need friends family and others to interact with.

2. Social, emotional and financial security: In a marriage, role is defined for each one of us. And it makes living easy and fun when working in a team. Imagine one has to do all the work of his own, washing, cooking, going to office and shopping.

3. Sex: It's a biological need of human body. Every human being needs to have it. One can argue that one doesn't need to be married to have it. But does it only include the physical aspect? How about the emotional aspect? how about commitment?

Many of my friends had mentioned about the incompatibility, sufferings after marriage. I would say who's telling you to get married to a person who's not compatible to you. Know the person before getting in marriage. And even after marriage if one needs to adjust a little bit, what's wrong in that?

And lastly I would like to mention, we all treasure our family. And it's because our parents got married we have this wonderful life. Surely they might have had their share of fights. But then again nobody likes all sweet or is it? :).

According to me marriage is a social trap. Our ancestors made marriage compulsory just for making it a tradition. In marriage not only the compatibility of a partner is important but the family, financial conditions, status etc too play an important role. But when sometimes these demands of the girl and boy cannot be completed or any of the one partner lacks these qualities it only leads to hearttaking divorce or frustration, domestic violence, extra marital affairs. What this society needs is just that commitment but for this commitment binding people by a social custom called marriage is not worth doing. So I feel that instead of bounding people freedom and space to live their life should be given.

In earlier times when society was men-dominated then indeed it was social trap as well as compulsion for women to be in the trap. Looking from the Indian society perspective woman's were considered as the wealth of other's family. They will be finally married to someone and all her dependence will be on her in-laws family. So, women became financially dependent on their husband and have no financial claims on the wealth of her own family. So, even if nothing is going well with her husband and in-laws she had to tolerate as she had been virtually shunned by her family after marriage.

But now coming into modern scenario society is liberalised. Women's are not looked upon by their family in the same ways as they were looked in earlier times. They are financially independent. So, they can have their say right away if they are not finding the person compatible. But still because of the fear of the society they don't call quits right away. Even in the higher sections of the society it is evident. Recently, one IFS officer was charged beating her wife. She initially tolerated but finally made it public. So, question arises why she tolerated the torture to which she was subjected?Again, many years back there was the case in which two colleagues of premier MBA institution had their love marriage. But, husband after sometime started beating her and that two with rods. Her body bore the scars of that. Then again question arises why she didn't call quits right away?It's the trap created by the society and to cut the trap you had to be mentally strong enough to face the why question from the society. Even your family would not be supportive in your decisions.

All this arguments holds true in case of man also.

In India there is customs and our social bondages for marriage. I think if your partner is understand your feeling and value you at that stage it is not called trap. But when one partner not understand and hurt our feelings, emotions and in such situation if person search or find out his own choice person and be happy with new person at that time a person who not understand feel marriage is social trap.

I think Marriage is very good relation but its success is totally depend on our thinking and understanding.

Marriage is a bond that Lord Rama and Devi Sita got into. It is that perfect and pure and purifying relation, which is about preserving our own dharma and protecting it. Marriage between a man and woman is about dharma (righteousness), protection, righteous love, support, understanding and devotion. In the society, marriage forms the right base for a growing, prospering and righteous society. It is a tradition, when you live in the society you have to follow the tradition, which may keep you happy and protected within the society. All glories to Shri Krishna. Hare Krishna.
