Wrong Reasons for Marriage

Now getting married is a good thing, and it’s the most beautiful thing when a person finds the right person, that person that is the perfect fit for them. This is all good but it can become a sad thing when someone is marrying the right person for the wrong reasons and it is a big time tragedy when two wrong people are getting married to each other for the wrong reasons!

There are a lot of factors that go into arriving at that place where one is getting married for the right reasons; many of which have to do with self-growth and maturity. The funny part is that some people are getting married for the wrong reasons and don’t even know it.

For anyone who may be in doubt, here are some terrible and totally wrong reasons for anyone to get married:


This is one very common reason why some people get married; almost everyone has probably heard someone say that they or someone else wants to get married because they are getting old(er). While age can be a consideration in marriage where other factors are in place, it is wrong to get married for the sole reason that one is old enough or getting too old. If you haven’t found the right person, and are not mentally and emotionally mature, among many other things, then you are not fit for marriage.

To Have Kids

It is not a good idea to get married just because you want to have kids. You can get a sperm donor or surrogate to do that for you and you can even be a baby mama/daddy if you want it so bad. Marriage contracted for such reasons often end in misery.

To Escape Family Problems

If you want to get married because you want to escape your parents or any other family issues you’re having, don’t do it. It is a bad idea because you are probably not thinking straight.

For Money

This is something that is said all the time and a lot of people still do it. Although money and financial clarity is important in marriage, money on its own is not a good enough reason to marry someone, unless you love them and get along with them too.

Money cannot replace love or kindness, or fidelity or understanding. Slow down.

For Competition

If you’re getting married simply because everyone else is getting married or because you want to prove a point to someone, you’re wrong.

To Have Your Wedding Dream

If you’re getting married only because you want actualize those your childhood dreams of your wedding dress and your wedding day, you’re no longer in touch with what is important. You should probably get some counselling

Please note that the above reasons are not bad desires all the time, but they are terrible reasons to get married if each or any one of them is the sole reason why a person wants to get married. The chances are that anyone is such a state of mind is not thinking clearly and may be ready to manipulate and deceive others to get what they want. Such desperation often ends in disappointment and pain.
