Is the idea of having one partner for life still a realistic one?

Is the ide a of having one partner for life still a realistic one?

Thesis statement/ Stand: I agree that the idea of having one partner for life is still a realistic one to a large extent.

Supporting Argument 1 (Yang Yun Jia):having one partner is still realistic as it brings a sense of trust,safe and relax to the modern people contributing to the basic human need of being happy.

Despite how the society changes,the basic needs of people to be happy does not chang over time. In today`s world, things changes rapidly.The faster things changes,the stronger the psychological need for the feeling of being safe and steadfast.

Supporting Argument 2 (Nicholas Tan): Having one partner in life would teach people how to be tolerant and committed in their relationships.

Having only one partner in life means that he/she would need to tackle many problems in life with their spouses for their lifetimes.

Conflicts between couples are sometimes inevitable when they have disagreements about their opinions. However, they to try to resolve issues and reach a compromise.

Hence, having one partner in life would help people to be tolerant and understanding towards their spouses even during quarrels. Instead of quarrelling everday, they could actually sit down and think of any solutions to solve the problems peacefully.They would also be more tolerant and accept each other's opinions easily.

Opposing Argument 1 (Aaron Soh): People taste and preferences continually change naturally.

Furthermore during marriage, we tend to discover certain traits of our other halves that we did not notice before (not everyone is perfect).

Over time people change whether due to natural or artificial causes, physically and mentally.

Opposing Argument 2 (Tan Wei Ye): People now view marriage as not being a lifelong commitment and thus they are not willing to just have one partner in life.

In the modern world, marriage is becoming a temporary arrangement due to the power to divorce and hence people would not be willing to have one partner forever.

Due to globalization and the competitive working environment, people are becoming more self-serving and fickle-minded, hence they might not be willing to be attached to one partner forever.

For example, the divorce rate of married Singaporeans is increasing over the years. On the contrary, the rate at which Singaporeans remarry is increasing over the years.

Conclusion: In conclusion, I firmly agree that the idea of having one partner for life is a still realistic one. Having one partner for life ensures the continuity of a family relationship and strengthens the bond between family members. It also helps to ensure a sense of security and belonging in a person.
