Marriage may be a stabilizing factor, but is it not true that there are bad marriages and bad relationships within marriage?
Of course this is true. What happens here is that marriage simply bounds together two people who have embarked on a defective relationship. When a marriage mate is chosen for the wrong reasons, without sufficient responsibility, the obviously trouble ensues. Marriage alters nothing in the personal make up of the partners; of itself it will ne bring them closer emotionally, nor will it mature them, but what happens within the marriage may. Marriage is the beginning of a long tortuous road, to succeed it must be embarked upon with due seriousness.
