Why Do People Get Married? 

Historically, marriage was a necessity for many. It was a way to ensure one’s lineage. For women, it was an acceptable path to financial security. Today, marriage isn’t a necessity in the ways it once was. If it’s not necessary to get married, though, why do people want to get married? 

There are many reasons why one could want to get married, including finances and/or children. For some, marriage is about wanting to be wanted or a desire for intimacy. For others, marriage is a mark of maturity or a sign of their personal success. Those reasons alone, however, are not enough to ensure that a marriage can last. 

What Makes For A Lasting Marriage? 

The Five-Year Marriage isn’t about making a short commitment and then parting ways after. Rather, The Five-Year Marriage is an approach to marriage that doesn’t take your union as a couple for granted. It’s a plan that encourages married couples to renew their commitments, accommodate and acknowledge change, and make decisions that are based on who you are now rather than who you were in the past. The Five-Year Marriage allows both partners in a married couple room for growth – and that is one of the things that can make a marriage last.
