How Males and Females Adjust to Marriage
A wealth of evidence shows marriage is not an accessible institution. People join a union with various objectives and purposes; some are realized while others are not, which causes frustration. The number of divorces and separations in today’s culture indicates that marriage failure is on the rise. The amount of couples seeking counseling in an effort to save their marriages is further evidence of the same. Research on couples and even individuals seeking counselling due to emotional issues is fascinating. According to Knabb and Vogt (2011), there is a gendered tendency among people seeking therapy. Women are more likely than men to seek counselling, which raises the question of whether there is a gender difference in how well people adjust to marriage.
Therefore, an online survey was conducted to determine whether men and women adjust to marriage differently and who does it better. For the online poll, a sample of 50 married people—25 men and 25 women—was chosen.
According to the survey replies, the research’s findings were examined. Eighty-four percent of the 25 women who responded to the study, or 21 out of them, said their marriages did not make them happy. On the other hand, only 12 out of the 25 men polled—or 48%—said they were content with their marriage. The data back with Boden, Fischer, and Niehuis’ (2010) conclusions that men are more likely than women to feel content in marriage. The same study found that males were more satisfied with their marriages than women were. Given that men and women enter into marriage for very different reasons, the degree of approval is closely tied to the degree to which the reasons for getting married have been fulfilled.
