Modern Love: Why do we Get Married?

In a time when some researchers worry about a union crises, the stories in this topic of Modern Love, Paw’s weekly advice row, offer an alternative perception of intimacy. These young people are demonstrating how love can live in a variety of relationships, from a young couple who forms an unlikely friendship on a train program to a young woman who has pediatric leukemia and continues to bask in a new romance as she recovers from her illness.

Whether they’re hooking up with everyday acquaintances, dating for sex and not necessarily little more, or living together before marrying, more American people are thinking differently about their intimate links. The majority of Americans still consider relationship to be a desirable social entity that provides legal benefits, including access to health healthcare, and promotes happier and more stable lives for married people than their single or unmarried counterparts. And despite these advantages, many of them acknowledge that the institution comes with some unpleasant downsides as well: married people ca n’t easily divorce and are expected to be sexually monogamous.

As the djinn of fairness is finally out of the bottle, several younger Americans are beginning to ask the question: Why do we get married? This move, combined with a fundamental shift toward personalization and the generous support of the #metoo movements, is introducing a new romantic paradigm that does alter how we approach setting up. We may just promise that it will also encourage a more sincere and considerate technique to long-term ties.
