Why Marriages are Important?

Even the God says, “it is not good for a man to be alone”. Marriage is a way two souls unite together, promising to be there by each other’s side for the rest of their lives. Marriage ties a man and a woman into a beautiful relationship in which both bear children and raise them together in the best possible way. Both man and woman are found to be healthier and way happier together, enjoying the joys of life together, dealing with all the problems together. Both the man and woman become a shield for each other, protecting each other from everything and crossing and jumping through every hurdle of life together. 

The research says that the married people experience way less depression than single people. As the married person always has someone present by his/her side. 

 

-Benefits of Marriage 

There are numerous and immense benefits ofmarriage. 

The social benefits include:

·As the studies say, husband and wife are both much healthier and happier together, as compared to being alone. When a man is living with his wife, he is much calm. Not only he takes care of his health, but he has a woman beside him who helps him with his health. Same is with the woman. When a woman is sick, her husband is there for him, helping her through the sickness, making sure she does not do much work and rest as much as possible. This way a man and a woman live a happy and healthy life together. Both the man and the woman experience the best physically strong and salubrious condition.

·Both the man and woman experience emotional, as well as moral support from the partner. This ensures that both of them do not feel alone in the times of hardships and hurdles. A husband is always there to support his wife, and same does the wife for her husband. This makes them both very less likely to fall for depression. When one of them encounters conditions where he/she might fall badly in depression or frustration, the other one is always there with all ears to listen to the partner, console them, make them happy and support them no matter what it takes. 

·Studies say that the married people make more money and wealth than the single themselves. When the topic of marriage comes up, people often avoid it by saying that marriage brings so many responsibilities. They believe that they can not keep up a well-living by falling into a relationship like marriage. But they don’t understand that marriage actually brings more wealth. Not only you have the blessing of God over yourself, but there are

certain ways which prove that married couples earn more. Either both of them work, or one of them work. You must have heard of Marital Tax Deduction. That’s for the married couples that they need to pay fewer taxes. 

 

·It is proved that the married men earn way more money than single men. They even get jobs quicker. As they are considered to be the ones with more responsibilities. Also, when talking about married women, they are financially stable. Even it is a choice for married women either to make money for themselves or not. 

 

·The children of married people are less likely to have a miserable life. As they have their parents to fulfill all their needs. The children of a married couple also get to have almost all their wants and desires fulfilled. These children have very low chances of being poor as they have two parents ahead of them, making money for their good living and providing them with every facility a good, well-being child must have. 

 

·The children of married people are very less likely to fall victim to bully and abuse. Because they have their parents to give them attention and protect them. 

 

·The children of a healthy couple are much attentive and happier. They attend school with an active passion. They do not miss out their classes and they do their work with excellence providing a very satisfactory and excellent outcome that not only makes their parents happy but provide them the glory for a brighter future as well. These children are quite social. They are very confident in making new friends, dealing with different people and partaking in different activities. These students are physically and mentally very fresh and very active. This way they become quite successful in everything.

The other benefits of marriage include: 

·Many health benefits by the Government, in the form of health insurances. And being an employee provides you with additional health benefits by the firm or company you are working in. 

 

·There are leave benefits that you can avail when your partner is sick. Being an employee, you have a complete right of asking for a leave for the sake of your family. A Married couple enjoys the security benefits as well, which ensure their secure living in the present as well as future. So, they don’t need to worry about the security of their family and other things anymore.

 

·They say that a married man or woman lives longer than an

unmarried person. Some say it’s because they have so much to live for as compared to a single person. They have responsibilities to fulfill, they have happier people around them to make them happy and protect them from sickness.

·The married couple has a fresh and happening mood at most times than single people. An exhausted man when comes home to a beautiful wife welcoming him home with a hot supper, he forgets about his hectic day and opens up to his wife. 

 

Types of Wedding Invitations

There are numerous types of wedding invitations now available in the market. Some of them are.

 

·Engraved Wedding

Invitation – An engraved wedding invitation is very unique and looks very beautiful.

Different companies have installed top-notch machinery which is expert in printing the engraved work. In the engraved wedding invitation method, a copper plate is used and the words are carved onto that plate which gives a very royal and luxurious look to the invitation. This paper plate is then inserted into the special machine and a paper comes out of this copper plate, having beautiful words on it, pouring out the appealing message for the receivers.

 

·Hand-Written

Wedding Invitation – No, these are not the ordinary hand-written letters type of invitations. There are special men with special writing who give your invitation a look at those hand-written words. Have you wondered why hand-made embroidery and other accessories are much worthy than the ones which were made with modern machinery? Because hand-made things require efforts. 

 

·Thermo-Graphed

Wedding Invitation – The engraved wedding invitations are undoubtedly very beautiful, but they require a lot of your money. They are expensive. If you want an invitation that looks like engraved ones, yet they are cost friendly. I recommend you going for thermography. It is cheaper, but it gives almost the exact look of the engraved wedding invitations. This way you can have a beautiful wedding invitation for your big day without spending too much money on it. 

 

·Contemporary

Wedding Invitation – The contemporary wedding invitations are far different from the other ones. While other use ivory-shaded papers, the contemporary wedding invitation uses different colors for their paper. You can go to their shop, look out for designs, or create your very own. Tell them what you want. Tell them your color scheme, the design you prefer the most. And they will make you the perfect and the most beautiful wedding invitation.

 

·Off-Set Printed

Wedding Invitation – The off-set printed wedding invitation includes just the normal printing that is mostly used in business. In my opinion, it is not so ideal for printing the wedding invitations as weddings are a very formal event. A very beautiful and elegant invitation card must be there to invite your honorable guests. The invitation itself speaks of the importance and the honor of the big day and you. You must look close to the requirements for the best wedding invitation.

 

·Calligraphy Wedding

Invitation – If talking about the beauty, nothing can beat the calligraphy in it. The calligraphy wedding invitations are surely one of the most beautiful ones. Where words dance with elegance and the colors mesh well together. The card, the invitation shows the elegance, shows the grandeur of the splendid wedding. There are now modern machines and technology which print out the invitations with the most modern calligraphy. Even now you can select different fonts and different styles when it comes to calligraphy. Choose your color scheme, choose your design, choose your words, choose your font and let them make the best invitation for you.

It has been seen and observed how the wedding invitation methods and ways changed over with every passing decade. People started with signs and then loud announces and then they adopted the paper invitations. And just how amazing it is, how the paper invitations even changed with time. How it all started with an invitation looking like just a regular letter and now there are special cards which are specially designed on orders with a wide price range. The cards, made under the supervision of experts and in the modern technology ensures that you send the best invitation to your loved ones.
