Many women feel that getting married will confine them to the life of a housewife, when they would prefer to work or party. The mindset of women today is that they can put off marriage until they fulfill some dream they have pursued for years, such as Jane and her doctorate thesis on Donne (That Hideous Strength, 12). In That Hideous Strength, Jane and Mark put off having children because neither of them feels ready, and this could possibly be a good position. If one has children before she is ready, she can get overwhelmed, and the marriage may dissolve, because the unity of the marriage is not strong enough. While Jane and Mark are young and only recently married, they are making excuses for themselves and their fear of the responsibility of taking care of another human being.
As they were not thinking about love or their future, their marriage is not a happy one and although Lydia likes to brag about being the first one of the daughters to be married, it is predicted she will regret this later. I think there are many different attitudes towards marriage in Pride and Prejudice, but In think Jane Austen gives the impression that couples who marry for love are much happier than couples who don?t.
High schools should teach sex education. Sexual diseases, unwanted pregnancies and abortions could be prevented if teenagers have the proper information. Some parents don’t know how to talk to their children about sex, or they are just too shy to do it. Other parents don’t even have the right information because their own parents didn’t talk to them about sex ether. Many cultures don’t allow kids to talk or ask anything sexually related until they get married, and sometimes even after that talking about sex to your parents is considered disrespectful.
In Pride and Prejudice the relationships are not always due to the fact that the partner’s actually have affection for each other. Mr. and Mrs. Bennet ,who are followed in their footsteps by Lydia in her mate choice, did not marry on account of feeling any kind of endearment to each other. Elizabeth and Darcy along with Jane and Bingley found relationships that are based on true devotion to one another and will provide them happiness. The book 's central conflict is that the girls are ready to be married because of societal views of marriage. The two eldest Bennet sisters do not view marriage the same way that it is meant to be in their society.
According to Reiss F. (2015), in the United States today, thousands of children under the age of 18 have recently taken marital vows- mostly girls married adult men. People have tried arguing that it is illegal since they would be considered underage, but with parental consent it is legal. Women who started off as strong and independent slowly finished off as scared and ashamed. The women were scared because they had no say in denying the marriage and they couldn’t stop whatever was occurring, such as sexual contact, or abuse. They were ashamed because their friends would judge them if they ended up having children and just for how their lives changed.
Some schools decide to teach abstinence only programs, which are not effective enough. I believe this because some parents do not believe their teen should be taught to never have sex until marriage. Along with that parents are again being the ones who need to be educated before the teenagers are. There are parents do not agree with their teeanger being taught sex education in schools because they think their teenager is only being taught about having sex. What parents do not fully know is there is more to sex education than just sex.
Many leave current situations in search of another, but soon realize that the "grass isn't greener on the other side." And the trend continues "Americans love to get married, but half our marriages don't take. Then we switch partners and remarry, with roughly the same odds of success." - Amy Dickinson In two of the three synoptic Gospels (Mark 10:2-12 and Luke 16:18) Jesus claims divorce is unacceptable and remarriage is the same as adultery. He also says that once a man and woman are united as one, they should not separate (Rubio, 166).
Most couples that are married and brag about how “amazing” their marriage is are mostly the ones who have a not so good marriage. Also the ones who don’t really brag about how good their marriage is can also have a not so good marriage also, that’s why it’s always a secret. Couples should also take in consideration when the couple want to marry each other for the first time that divorce rate has declined as couples get married later in life, often after living together. But the divorce rate for first marriages is still about 47% (Elder WebMD "Secrets to a Happy Marriage"). However that doesn’t always happen so don’t think divorce happens for everyone’s first marriage.
Through the narrator, the readers learn her inner thoughts: Before her marriage she had believed herself to be in love; but since the happiness which should have resulted from this love had not come to her, she felt that she must have been mistaken. And she tried to find out exactly what was meant in life by the words 'bliss', 'passion,' and 'rapture,' which had seemed so beautiful to her in books (pp. 29, 30). Charles will never be able to live up to Emma's high expectations or the dashing, charming, intellectual characteristics the men possesses in her novels. Emma's relationship w... ... middle of paper ... ... to her mother: " 'Leave me alone!'
I thought it would never happen though, because of the absoulute fool I made out of myself the first time we met. As luck would have it though, before I even knew his name, one of his friends was trying to set us up. It was a shock for a girl like me that had never exactly been anyone’s first choice for a prospective girlfriend. The next month was probably the best month I had had in many years as I spent it talking with and spending time with this man that seemed far to perfect. He seemed to be the one I could share anything with, and he cared for me as he would try to cheer me up when he heard that I had been sick and injured.
