Bachelorhood

What is it that makes all the best of bachelors go down the road of matrimony? Have often wondered.. we all say, looking at others, we will never do it.. come a time, we all follow suit. Some on our own count, some on count of our elders. But we all do it.

I guess my cousin is no exception. A guy fiercely independent of his freedom, always stating that he is his master, also bit the dust.. No one to report to, no one to get bogged down by, no one to keep on asking a person, what time will you come.. Yet, he got engaged. Of course it is too early to worry, these are just blissful days of enjoyment for two people who take a big commitment to spend the rest of their lives together.

No joke this, as this becomes the start of a change in life styles and processes which would never be the same again. Two people, both handing over their life in each others hands.. That is a major decision. That is the beginning of a new life, a new dawn.

Of course the eternal question always remains, what if we did not get married.. For starters, the world would have ended with Adam and Eve. And maybe considering the population issues that exist in the 21st Century, that might be a good option, however, I believe it is a road that leads to loneliness. The joy and the pleasure that one gets with the presence of a family, with people around oneself, simply cannot be replicated with any other form of relationships. This is also part of change that is so imperative in life, as with each new generation, comes new hopes, new challenges, new growths, that simply would not exist, if we were to continue as is.
