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

Reason 2:In today's society, marriage partners may break up with each other once their marriage are on the rocks.Where marriage is no longer perceived as a sacred union, but more of a social contract. They would often find somebody else to seek comfort and heal their emotional scars.

Elaboration: It is not necessary, and almost impossible, to love the same person for life. Love and marriage are completely different from each other in the modern world, the feelings of affection for someone will never be the same again after a marriage. It is also often said 'Marriage is the burial ground of love.'After a divorce, many people will start finding new partners. In other words, most people will need someone to depend on emotionally at some point in their life. When their partner leaves them due to conflicts or other various reasons, they would often need someone else to give them an emotional shelter.

Again, what do you mean by the marriage being on the rocks? Make the link clearer - For instance: It is no longer realistic to have one partner for life as marriage is no longer perceived as a sacred union, but more of a social contract.

Supporting Argument

Reason 2:The feelings and attachment for someone who becomes your life partner, even only for a short while, is irreplaceable.

Reason 1:I do believe that having one partner in life is still realistic today, due to its impact on the rearing of children.

Opposing Argument

Reason 1:Times have changed. Many now place work before relationships and (forming) families. Hence they do not form genuine ties with people because they’re more focused on climbing to the top.

Thesis Statement: Following the progression of our society, many views and thoughts have changed. What is right and relevant in the past might not be so in the current era. One such example would be the idea of having one partner for life. In the past, the tradition of marriage means sticking to one partner for life and never splitting up. However, the number of divorces has increased over the years as our society evolved into the modern world. Is the idea still relevant and realistic? Our group agrees and that the idea is still important in the current context.

Not too bad. But how is the idea important?

Conclusion

Conclusion: We agree that the idea of having one partner for life is still realistic and relevant in the modern world context. Even though different people have different needs and some people, though faithful, still requires the company of someone else after one partner has left them. The fact remains that the number of first time marriages is still large, depicting the fact that many still prefers one partner for life.
