[What Do You Think About Marriage?]

What is marriage? The auspicious union of two people? Or is it more than that? Does it involve a bond between two families? Ideas on marriage may vary in different parts of the world, but the main ideology behind it remains the same. It is the beginning of a new chapter in one’s life, with the person they want to spend the rest of their lives with. I asked a few friends around our university about their thoughts on marriage, and received interesting answers.

The common idea people had is that it is a sacred commitment between couples, and that it has to be taken seriously. It is about thinking for two, rather than one. Marriage is when two people come together to try to reach a single purpose in life.

It was interesting to see how most of us seem to have an idea of what our ‘perfect marriage’ would be like. Many of us have already imagined our lives with our life partners, in around 10 years’ time. But as university students, are we ready for this commitment? Have you ever thought about marriage and then realised you’re not ready to get married any time soon? We are still learning and experiencing new things in life, and finding our priorities. It is important to get a proper grasp of one’s life before jumping into a big commitment like marriage. But once you decide to commit, your life will unfold a new chapter, one you will cherish for the rest of your life.

【你對婚姻有甚麼看法?】

婚姻是甚麼?兩個人幸福的結合?還是不只這樣,而是兩個家庭的結合?世界各地對婚姻的想法可能有所不同,但背後的觀念都一樣。婚姻是人生的新一章,從此與喜歡的人共渡餘生。我問過大學裏幾位朋友對婚姻的看法,得到一些有趣的回應。

最常見的看法是婚姻是兩個人神聖的承諾,應該要認真對待。這並非一個人的事,而是要顧及兩個人。婚姻是兩個人攜手,一同嘗試達成生命中的目標。

很有趣地,很多人都像是對「完美婚姻」有一定想法。許多人已經開始幻想大概十年後與另一半的生活。但作為大學生,我們預備好許下承諾了嗎?你有沒有試過想到婚姻,但發現自己並未預備好要結婚?我們仍在學習,仍在體驗生命中的新事物,探索自己的興趣。在跳到婚姻這種重大承諾前,更重要的是好好把握自己的人生。但如果你已決定要許下承諾,你會翻開人生新的一章,而這會是你餘生都會好好珍惜的一章。
