"The surgeon general has listed marriage as the number one cause for divorce..." *lol*
All kidding aside...what does marriage mean to you? Your comments would be most welcome. Please note that comments may be used in an upcoming article I am thinking of writing.

Here are a some sample responses:
"It can be the most beautiful thing in life if the companions are truly compatible to each other (soul mates as they say), have the same vision about life and the hereafter and so base their marriage/life on the right principles."
"It's the bonding of two (or more souls) under God, and union of two families, to protect ones deen, and lead a well balanced life while better staying focused on the purpose of this journey. Any journey is easier to embark upon with a companion alongside."
"Basically marriage is a relationship and companionship between an adult man and woman sustained by love, intimacy, commitment, compromise, adaptation, and similarities in values."
"Marriage is about joining life and another family...here and in the hereafter...someone who can be your better half...help you become a better Muslim...a better person...someone who motivates you...and yet someone who you can motivate...it has to be equal. Basically someone who you can have and be happy with...thinking you have everything in the world...in just one person...without the materials of the world."
