The meaning of marriage
Being of a holy background, nowadays marriage has lost its initial meaning. In XXI century fewer and fewer couples are willing to legitimate their relations. Women became more self-caring, and are not eager to limit their freedom until the age of 30 or even 35. Even though love is still strong, the original sense of marriage has unfortunately almost disappeared.
