Theories of choosing a marriage partner

There are various theories for choosing a marriage partner. Some researchers, such as K. Melville, liken the process of choosing a spouse to a trade transaction, with the” currency ” in exchange being the social values of two individuals, such as social origin, economic status, education, and personal qualities (age, appearance) (Melville K., 1977).

Proponents of the theory of homogamy (Nye A., Berardo F., Bossard J. and others) argued that “exchanged” can not be any man and woman, but only those who have the same “social value”, or homogamy.

A., 1981). Continue reading

Principles of joint married life

In a well-off family, there is always a sense of today’s and tomorrow’s joy. In order to keep it, the couple needs to leave a bad mood and troubles outside the house, and when they come home, bring with them an atmosphere of elation, joy and optimism. If one of the spouses is in a bad mood, the other should help him get rid of the depressed mental state. In every disturbing and sad situation, you should try to catch the humorous notes, look at yourself from the outside; in the house, you should cultivate humor and jokes. If trouble is piling up, don’t be scared, try to sit down calmly and consistently understand their causes.

Many mistakes can be avoided by following the basic principles of married life together. Continue reading
