Each person understands the meaning of the word “family” in his own way. Some people need family only for procreation. Some others need it because of the pressure of society. And the most people create the family to get support from members of family and to get those emotions and feelings which can give only the family members.
There are a lot of parents who put pressure on their children or sometimes make their children marry. But in most cases it leads to unfortunate results, like divorce. And I think each one should make his own decision when he or she is to marry.
For me marriage (family) is the main and responsible step in my life. I consider, that people should better learn each other before marriage. Although, the cohabitation is not welcomed by many people, I think that it is very important and significant period of life for couple before creating family ties. It is the period when couple understands, whether they suit each other, have they faith, mutual understanding and respect or not. Generally speaking, I hold the idea that extremes meet. When I decide to marry I will look for a person opposite to me. For example, I am calm and patient, that is why energetic, active and hot-tempered person will suit me.
For my mind the family is not full without children. My grandmother often told: “Sweety, remember, children are the flowers of our lives. We are waiting for them like flowers in spring. We are taking care of them and growing them up lovingly like flowers!” Nowadays we can often meet in our society different families, with or without children. We can meet well-off family with a good job, big house, smart cars, but without children. From the first sight they seem to be happy. But indeed these families are not happy compared with poor families having children.
I would like to have two children. Moreover, in all families of my uncles and aunts there are two and more children. I suppose, that to have brother or sister is better for a child, for his development and for his future life. Because when parents leave this world, there is no one closer to you, than your brothers and sisters.
In conclusion I want to say:
The creation of the family is very important step in our life. And it is more important to find the person who will share the joy and sadness of family life.
