Marriage Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION

Freedom of Expression   Poetry



Marriage is a legal union
Between two people
(Or is there any other meaning?).

It is an institution that started in Eden
It was meant for perfect companionship
Extending to a perpetual bliss
With its lucence and dissemination of offspring
Where love was meant to abound showcasing itself.

But today, many people do marry
For the blissful perspective of marriage,
Rather they marry money, cars, certificates,
Awards, houses, tourism, positions, status,
And do not marry love.

This could be why
There are divorces in marriages,
Because the concept of marriage has changed
By human beings – and marriage is now called fun:
People spend millions on it; buy expensive cars for it, and so on.

What is marriage?
