My point of view is that marriage is not a trap if the partners know each other and have respect for each other. Marriages become miserable when the partners fail to respect each other's individual space and opinions. Partners sometimes forget to set boundaries in their relationship.

For example, they should find some time for themselves to do things that enrich them as an individual or dedicate some time to their hobbies. Respect the privacy of the partners in a marriage and take time to understand each other. This will make marriages heavenly.

Hello everyone.

My views and opinion regarding this topic are above average because as a human being the main moto and perspective of life definitely not to get married. It's a person's personal choice.

And marriage is not trapped when both partners are supportive, understanding, and adorable to each other and besides this, the family supports them. Both partners should get independence in their lives and decisions. Keep them happy and maintain a healthy relationship with having some situation handling situations. So we can't say that marriage is 100% a social trap.

Hello everyone.

My thought regarding this is marriage is definitely a trap for every human being who is not conscious and aware of his real constitutional position, but the man who values motherhood and treats his wife as a part of himself rather than as a remote control or toy for his moods and emotions and vice versa, the living place would become better and most importantly they must also value their spiritual wellness too.

Marriage is not inherently a social trap; rather, its a success hinges on how partners treat each other. Unbreakable trust, unwavering support, and mutual respect form the cornerstone of a thriving, enduring relationship.

When one partner feels trapped or deprived of respect and assistance, the marriage can indeed become confining.

In many instances, women may find themselves feeling trapped due to various factors. For instance, if a woman works outside the home, but her husband fails to share household responsibilities or participate in child-rearing, she may feel ensnared. Gender-biased presumptions about responsibilities exacerbate this sense of entrapment. Economic constraints might further limit her ability to seek divorce.

In conclusion, equality and respect within a marriage are pivotal. Treating one's partner as an equal ensures that marriage remains a nurturing and fulfilling partnership, rather than a constraining institution. By upholding these principles, the perception of marriage as a trap can be dispelled.

Hey everyone!

In my perspective, marriage shouldn't be considered as a social trap at all. Marriage is a pious and saintly bond between two individuals.

On a macro level, it seems marriage is a burden. But the root cause of such awful thinking is a lack of understanding and trust in each other. The main pillars of any relationship is trust, respect, and understanding for each other.

Another cause of increasing failed marriages is the lustfulness amongst youth. Everyone is looking for extra-marital affairs in order to satiate their physical hunger. And this is true even for love marriages! The so-called love vanishes when lust comes into the picture.

However the same doesn't apply in the case of arranged marriages. In arranged marriages, if the choice of girl/boy is not fulfilled, then it sows the seeds of discord right from the beginning of marriage and they start to dislike each other and create animosity among them.

Last but not least, my point is that everyone needs moral support in life and everyone needs and deserves a life partner. Marriage is a very sanctimonious relationship. However, if the marriage is not working cordially, it's better to separate from each other.

Hi everyone, Myself Abi.

Yeah, in my perspective marriage is not a social trap, where everything belongs to the individual, marriage is not only the bond of love and trust but also it is where letting people to do whatever they need. In some families, they were treating women not as the same way they treated a man.

So, everything evolves under equality interfering in the independence of an individual. When society has a predefined equality of giving a high standard for men in a family and propagating that women should follow their traits, yeah it may not be applicable for many families but it prevails the most.

Thank you everyone.

Marriage, in my opinion, is not a "social trap" but rather another means to form a "social bond" with various people.

Now, I'd like to emphasise the word bond; we learn about several individuals who are commonly referred to as relatives. It's a technique to broaden one's family and find connections in a new social group.

It is true that sometimes it takes time to adjust, as is the case not only in marriage but in any bond we attempt to form.

I don't think marriage is a social trap for all individuals in society. It is for the people who want to achieve something great through work, something they are interested in, but not allowed to due to the pressure of their families or in-laws. Or due to the new responsibilities they are made responsible for.

If we have supportive families who allow us even after being married and help us through daily responsibilities marriage is nothing like a trap.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity.

In my opinion, Marriage is not a trap. Everything has its own pros and cons, it totally depends on how we deal with the situation. Marriage is a bond of love, commitment and accepting each other flaws. Where we can share our fears, insecurities, and achievements without any jealousy. It's just that sometimes we need support and time from our partners for our own growth. One should only be ready for marriage when they are fully prepared to share their life with another person and not under the pressure that families are forcing. It should be their own decision, so that in future if anything happens one should take their own responsibilities.

Even today when people want to live independently they need a caring partner that's why they opt for a living relationship so that before long-term commitment they can ensure that they are ready to share their life with this person. Nowadays Genz opts for flings because they want one person but they don't want commitment or responsibilities, this shows the person's own insecurity. At last, I conclude my word - Marriage shows you are ready for commitment, an adult who is ready to face hard times as well as good times with their partner. So it is definitely marriage is not a trap.
