  • I think it's just something some women feel they have to do ... or they've been "conditioned" to feel that way. Marriage is great, but someone can be very happy and fulfilled being single too! It's just not for everyone.
  • Im not sure why this was DRed... anyways Women are/were taught that they NEED someone to complete them. Men are taught to sow their wild oats....
  • Because God instituted it. If more women would wait until they are married to give away their cookies, there would be more weddings.
  • it is driven into little girls from the begenning, get married raise children , have a career and take care of your husband and family, that's all you have to do to be happy. It's no wonder that so many young women struggle to find happiness
  • I think it has to do with our most primal and basic instinct... procration of the species. Yes we can have babies without being married but our society and many societies around the world do not see babies without marriage as a good thing. So hence the need to be married.

  • Because when the divorce happens they will make a pile of dough. Cynical Eh?
  • Pressure from society and family. Friends and family are quick to ask a dating couple, "When are you getting married?" even if they've only been together for a short time. And society teaches women that their self-worth rests on how attractive they are to men. In this context, a marriage proposal is the ultimate seal of approval. If we removed these societal pressures and taught women that they were valuable regardless of what other men thought of them, we'd see fewer women pushing to get married.
  • Big Party. Big Dress. Big cake need I say more :)

  • I'd say in GENERAL it would be the fact that it is basically drilled into their minds at an early age that in order to have a full life you must get married. I'm sure over the years it will change. Everything els has.
  • It's partially the fault of oxytocin, a bonding chemical released when women orgasm. Sex for female pack mammals was about reproduction and with a partner who will them support them and their kids in every way. Now, not so much but some of the chemicals are still there as evolution hasn't ironed them out yet. That's why chicks wanna snuggle after sex. Evolution and the desire to watch football after sex is a tougher issue to address but I'm sure it's all explainable somehow.
  • They've been bombarded since childhood with the idea that marriage is the holy grail of happiness.
