Should Marriage Be A Yardstick For Success?

It's often said that a man/woman who is successful at every other thing but fails at marriage is a BIG FAILURE.

How true is this?

First, does it mean people who decide not to marry are failures, regardless of other achievements?

Second, what if a man/woman tries so hard to make the marriage work but the partner is not cooperating?

MARRIAGE IS A BIG INSTITUTION BIGGER THAN ANY CORPORATION,ITS DIFFERENT FROM WEDDING,ITS OF NO PERFECTION FROM ANY OF THE WORKERS,(ALLOW ME THAT RE-PERSONIFICATION) IF A MARRIAGE IS NOT WORKING AND YOU TRY HARD TO MAKE IT WORK A YEAR IS ENOUGH TO MAKE A CHOICE,SECONDLY MARRIAGE HAS A LIMITED INFLUENCE ON ACHIEVEMENT,IT DEPENDS ON WHO IS WORKING IN THE INSTITUTION (MARRIAGE PLC) IT MAY DEBAR PROGRESS IF YOU DON'T LET GO A PARTNER WHO DRAW YOU BACK AND IT MAY BRING SUCCESS IF YOU ARE FREE TO DETERMINE NEW PHASE OF LIFE-OR VICE VERSA. EVERY CHALLENGES HAS AN ALTERNATIVES. FORGET SENTIMENTS ,CHOICE IS GOOD.

It is a well known unwritten rule, that in order to do business in certain circles in Naija, you must be a married man. This is not about principles or marital responsibility, but based on the understanding that keeping a marital home is a juggling act that requires major responsibility and definitive skills - understanding, extreme patience (with her, mother-in-law, etc), selflessness, generosity, consideration, sensitivity(to her), insensitivity(when she annoys you), principles, integrity, tenaciousness/endurance (when ur so pissed, u wanna leave),etc.

All these these skills are also factors for success in any field or endeavour

I disagree that anyone who fails in terms of matrimony is a flop, but, marriage brings about this internal coolness and profound happiness in that you have someone to call your own and you share your life with someone you think you can trust to a certain level.

Finally failing in marriage does not mean one has failed in life while success in marriage does not mean one is a winner all round but happy marriage brings out the best in the couple and the joy,contentment and happiness radiates and reflects on almost everything they do while a troubled marriage/relationship might make one become filled up with hate and negativity.IMO

Marriage cant depend on individual, depends on the couple, cos it is a union of 2
