Men need someone to take care of them, women need someone to pay attention to them.
A man decides to get married because he has become over burdened with wealth and belongings and wishes to cease all sexual activities without joining the priesthood. She needs half his **** and life insurance if she plays it right....
Interesting turn of phrase...he wants, she needs.<br />
In the west, they want / need something similar (i.e. a partner) since it is possible to survive without marriage.<br />
In other countries, where a woman (almost literally) cannot survive without a man, the answer is security.
Apologies if I have upset you, it was not intended.
I had no idea you were a Muslim, since I was simply replying to the question and I used the term "west" to mean the (so called) developed world, rather than the geographic location.
Also the term "partners" can mean those in an unmarried sexual relationship, but it can also mean people you are equal (as in business), which is what I meant.
Marriage is for making the other your almost permanent partner in sharing your life..and accepting each other as you are..because that's why the couple agreed..to a marriage..I as a woman married for security, fun, freedom, tantrums, weird ideas.. like get up in the mid of night and listen to my dream..or I want to relax..its amazingly fun time..
The girl want that pay check <br />
The boy want the body just kidding <br />
Probably cause there in love or think they need to be married to have there relationship complete

if u ask me ,,i will tell u i get married because i find who match my thoughts,dreams,feelings,,he is the only answer for my questions in that time,many reasons,but no matter what ,i get married to fillfull the missing peace s,the empty hole in my heart,He was there,,just like that,,Im thankful for finding him..
It's really quite simple: Love.
Because he's found the "One." Men know when they find "the one" because she is different than what he is use to and he can't stop thinking about her and he wants to treat her really nice because "she's the one" and he knows it in his heart.<br />
Because she believes what he says about her - and most "women" don't have any needs that they can't fix themselves.
i just flip a coin ,lands on heads i say yes
Honestly, as a Christian I got married for sex, I love my wife but if you can get it for free why buy.
Marriage is just a formal, legal commitment that 2 people make because they already have made the emotional commitment. It might be because they want to have children in the union, it might be for estate planning purposes or religious reasons. Whatever the need is for either party to make it a legal union it only should happen after the emotional commitment (the most important one) is solid.
