To begin with gay marriage as a whole is completely wrong in most eyes if that has not already been picked up by people yet. There are many overwhelming cons and things that would be bad to society resulting from this legalization. The increase in benefits having to be paid by employers would increase due to their now being considered married. The thing that is so bad about this is because not only are they taking money away from people with families and mouths to feed but there giving it to gay couples just for being married. This in a way gives them incentive to marry not because they love each other but because it could bring a money outcome.
There is also a lower divorce rate in arranged marriages. When in a arranged marriage situation there is a lower expectation because neither side knows what to expect of the other person. Both sides imagine the worse scenario or outcome but when they get to the marriage and meeting the other person things turn out better than what they originally thought and they are willing to stay in the marriage and to make it work and get to know there partner better. There is a 0% - 7% divorce rate for arranged marriages compared to a 55% divorce rate in the England. Western societies seem to focus more on the physical appearance in relationships, therefore are more obsessed with love, sex, beauty etc.
We live in a strongly individualist society so therefore there will be instability in marriages which is based on fulfillment and commitment Functionalist like Fletcher argue that high divorce rate suggest that people value marriage very highly. This indicates people are less likely to put up with empty- shell marriages. Women want emotional and sexual companionship and mostly equality. To achieve this people will go through many partners to achieve their goal. Feminist like Hart suggest high divorce rates occur because of women's dual oppression as workers and mothers.
One reason is that people are getting married for the wrong reasons, such as unplanned pregnancies. Another reason is that women have become more independent so that they are not forced in to being in a marriage where they are not happy. Last, lenient divorce laws make it much easier for many couples to get divorced. Combined, these three reasons have caused the divorce rate to be seemingly high and projected the increased trend in divorces. Marriage has long been a sacrosanct tradition only broken in the times of utmost desperation.
People believe couples are more likely to divorce because it has become so much easier to do so. But why should people need to stay in an unhealthy marriage, is it just because society thinks the reasons for divorce are irrelevant? What may be just a bump in the road for one person, could be a deal breaker for the other. Many factors contribute to the high and growing divorce rate. Lack of communication, Infidelity, and abuse are the most recorded reasons.
It is making marriages happier and lasting longer. The marriage crisis that scholars, critics and social commentators think is happening might blame love based marriages. Yes, divorce rates have risen along with the rise of love based marriages but love based marriages are not the reason for more divorces. Divorces are caused by the other reasons that people get married besides love. The number one cause for divorce is that people are getting into marriage for the wrong reasons like marrying for money or children and being forced in an arranged marriage.

Several studies have shown that polygamy is more likely to present harmful effects, especially towards women and children, then monogamy. Women in polygamous marriages are at higher risk of low self-esteem, and depression, then women in non-polygamous relationships. Other studies show that polygamy can be detrimental to women’s overall marital satisfaction. This only heightens during a women’s pregnancy. Women are more likely to feel vulnerable or depression while pregnant, because their husbands become more likely to pay attention to the other (non-pregnant) wives.

This is as well seen in the way that there is some form of classism among humans. The fact that people will judge each other about their social class, there is the fact that women too fall into that category. In the rush to have a dream life and family, a trophy wife is one of the desires thus creating a gap between different women due to this categorization.

From analysing the literature throughout this essay it is proposed that females, when experiencing infertility, are more likely to suffer depressive symptoms; whereas males often tend to suffer anxiety towards this subject. It seems that in many developing countries females are shunned from society by male individuals for suffering with infertility, and within this culture it is widely believed that males are unable to be infertile. From this, it’s suggested that males and females emotions differ and it is unfair to suggest one sex is influenced more than the other. Both are sexes are caused psychological harm due to infertility and in western cultures, attitudes towards infertility seem to be understanding; however, this differs and seems insensitive and more difficult on women in developing countries.
