Let’s say that you’ve been in a marriage for a while and during your marriage, you had some ups and downs with your husband. As time progressed, the downs began to outnumber the ups and the two of you eventually ended up splitting up. After been married for some time, you’re back out on your own. Now that you’re single again, you ask yourself: is it a good idea for you to remarry?
Being in a marriage does have several benefits. One of the main benefits is that you will have someone to live with (ideally) whom you love and who loves you. This is one of the major goals of a happy marriage. You don’t have to worry about getting lonely. Also, sexual pleasure will be more readily available. Another benefit is the security you get when you have someone else to lean on if need be. It can be tough supporting yourself on your own. By having another person living with you, you can live more comfortably without having to worry about money as much.
Although marriage does have its perks, there are some downsides. One downside is that marriage is an all-or-nothing type of deal. If you aren’t satisfied with your marriage, then getting out of one isn’t as simple as “just breaking up.” You will have to deal with whoever you’re married to almost everyday, so if you don’t truly love them then marriage can become quite taxing.
If you’ve just gone through a divorce, you don’t necessarily need to get remarried. Sure, as you get older, you might be expected to remarry but you shouldn’t feel pressured to do so.
There are both positive and negative aspects of marriage. If you do end up going through a divorce or are currently divorced, you should consider whether or not you really want to be in a marriage at this point in your life. If you decide that marriage isn’t for you right now, that doesn’t mean that it will never be for you, you’re just not at that point in your life.
