There are many who’s already married and there are those who are thinking about getting married, it’s so important once you get married that you remain married. According to God’s word, marriage is much more than a “Contract”: Marriage is a God – made covenant. When you make a promise to God it cannot be broken. I take thee to be my lawful wedded (husband/wife), to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer or poorer in sickness and in health; to Cherish and to love, and I promise to be faithful to you until death do part us. When you made this Vow you made it until God, there is nowhere in the Bible that allow us to annual or divorce, once this vow is made God intend for you to keep it.
Gender roles, such as men being the ones expected to work, go to school, and play sports, and women to be the ones expected to clean the house and take care of the children is an ideology many individuals believe to be true when in reality it is something that is completely made up by humans and does not really exist. Perhaps, in a couple of years, gender roles will be completely extinct and something from the past, and people will start to live in a society where men and woman are allowed to be the person they truly are and can dress, act, work, or play the way they want without needing to conform and fit into the cruel expectations that society has placed on
Whether happening in a church or a courthouse room, American wedding ceremonies are based on rituals, folklore, and superstitions; these ceremonies give insight to how history has influenced American society by maintaining and creating cultural and social needs, as well as expressing gender and evolving gender social roles. Context The idea of love and the need for human bonding can be followed throughout history. The word ‘wedding’ comes from the old middle English word ‘wed’ meaning a pledge (The American). In colonial America, marriage did not happen in churches, as they often do now, but were strictly seen as a matter of property and reproduction, leaving the women with no rights but to obey her husband (“History).
Gender roles are an important part of the culture and social structure of every society. Their power to influence behavior derives from their essential quality, appearing to reflect inherent attributes of women and men and from the related tendency to be relatively consensual and for people to be aware of this consensus. Femininity and masculinity are gender roles that are routinely conceptualized with regard to the totality of gender traits or characteristics that one possesses regardless of gender (Bem, 1974). Because gender roles are shared, people correctly believe that others are likely to react more approvingly to behavior that is consistent rather than inconsistent with these roles. Therefore, the most likely route to a smoothly functioning social interaction is to behave consistently with one’s gender role or at least to avoid strongly deviating from it (Wood and Eagly, 2010).
Marriage is the procedure by which two individuals make their relationship open, authority, and changeless. In addition, marriage can be mainly divided into two foremost categories which are arranged marriage and free will marriage. Free will marriage is the marriage that a male and a female have their rights to pick their life accomplices. Free will marriage happens when two individuals get to know one another well and achieve the stage that they feel great when staying together. Planned marriage, then again, is the marriage that the life accomplice is picked and orchestrated by the senior relatives of the family, for example, folks.
The world just did not have expectations for men, there were women expectations of that woman took care of the house, like cook, clean, look after the children, serve food after their partner came back from work. Women have been portrayed to be weak, as men have been proven to be more masculine and having those strong characteristics.
Research Paper Historically and in today’s society, women have disadvantages as compared to their male counterparts while in the workplace. Traditionally in the Islamic cultures, women were not given equal rights to their male counterparts and not able to achieve the goals and careers that men did. Even after women gain rights, they still do not have the same rights as men. It has nothing to do with talent or intelligence, but only gender. In our society today, women are treated differently because of their gender, are not given raises that commensurate with their station and often make less compensation than men.
In conclusion, we as a society think of “men” as a strong, powerful man that work’s on cars, is the primary breadwinner, head of household, in charge of wife, men have hard/dirty jobs, men are messy and do not do household chores or cook, and men are not responsible for taking care of the children. Whereas women are perceived by society as having clean jobs, make less money than men, women are best at being stay at home mothers, women don’t need college, women don’t play sports, women are responsible for household duties and for raising children, and women are not as strong as men and could never be in charge. I think that stereotypes are changing in many ways women are starting to rise and become more equal when being compared to a man. Many women today have taken control of their own life and threw the stereotypical woman out the window and have started to become the exact opposite of what society once perceived women as. Women are now becoming the breadwinners, working hard/dirty jobs, head of household, and etc.
In our culture, mostly women have treated ad their object from the past till now. For example, in the past, women are not allowed to work and study, they are only an object to help to do cleaning and give birth. Even nowadays some rural area still used women as an item of trading. In today’s world, most of the culture support patriarchy system. Patriarchy system is a hierarchy system political, cultural and economic structure are controlled by men.
This is because different people have different opinions depending on their age group, where they come from and their religion. However, other believe that arranged marriage is a good idea, it guarantees a partner for them, its is more stable and secure than love marriage and also, it leads to everlasting happiness. In the past, Arranged marriage was very common, and still is in some countries in the world. Arranged marriage is when parents choose a spouse for their sons and daughters. According to Gagoomal (2009), “Arranged marriage is broadly defined as unions in which people other than the bride and groom, typically parents or other family members, play important or decisive roles in determining who marries whom.” (p. 590).
