Love is a feeling that is almost inexpressible. Some, if not all, might ask "Why is love so complicated?" All I have to say about that is.because we make it so. Humans are a complicated species.Love has the ability to change the world and make any individual happy regardless of their background. Love might have its cons, but overall love is one of the best feelings a person can experience. Marriage is the way to make love eternal and in turn create a life of happiness. Unfortunately, being single only leads to loneliness and regret. Personally, I would pick marriage over being single 10 times out of 10. Being married triumphs over singleness, because love is an amazing feeling. A spouse will never be lonely and a spouse will always have their partner's back. Although I agree with Bacon's statements in "Of Marriage and Single Life", that married life requires and abundance of time and responsibility, it's important to extend his ideas since love can make one's life exponentially important, as stated by John Donne in "A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning", by Robert Herrick in "To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time." and by "askmen.com".
Love is more than just some thoughtless feeling. Love is the limitless ability to care about a person. Even though love is really caring about another's happiness, love itself is on another level that is comparable to no other emotion. Marriage is the opportunity to explore this feeling even deeper and to make the experience eternal. Like Herrick says in "To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time", "Then be not coy, but use your time, and, while ye may, go marry; for, having lost but once your prime, you may forever tarry." (Herrick, pg. 534, lines 13-15) Which basically means time moves fast and the opportunity to marry won't last forever, so take the opportunity while it lasts. Beauty may be temporary but true love has no expiration date.
