Marriage: A Bed of Roses Or a Bed of Thorns?

     By definition, marriage is a formal and legal way to bind two people, a man and a woman, who wants to spend the rest of their lives together. There are many reasons why people get married and one of which is love. Normally, if an individual loves another individual and they want to be with each other's company forever, then that's when they decide to get married. In the past, a married couple cannot be separated which means they have to make their marriage work. But things are very different nowadays, in many countries, divorce is now legal. When a couple files for a divorce, it means that they will terminate or end whatever it is that keeps them together when they got married.

It is already known that marriage does not only offer happiness and joy, in other words, it's not always a bed of roses. Normally, there are several problems that come with it which makes it a bed of thorns, sometimes. For a couple who wants to really work things out, thorns will not easily make them give up. Since problems are already a part of marriage, a couple should know how to deal with them for the sake of their kids and their marriage.
