Marriage is not an easily accessible institution, according to a mountain of evidence. People join unions with various goals and purposes; some goals and purposes are fulfilled while others are not, which can be frustrating. Marriage failure is on the rise in today’s culture, as seen by the number of divorces and separations. Another indication of this is the number of couples seeking counseling to keep their marriages together. It’s fascinating to look into research on couples and even single people who seek counseling for emotional problems. There is a gendered propensity among those seeking therapy, claim Knabb and Vogt (2011). There may be a gender difference in how successfully people adjust to marriage because women are more likely than males to seek counseling.
An online survey was undertaken to determine whether men and women adjust to marriage differently and who does it better. A sample of 50 married people—25 men and 25 women—were selected for the online survey.
The survey responses were analyzed, and the research’s conclusions were looked at. Twenty-five women participated in the survey, and eighty-four percent of them, or 21 of them, indicated their marriages did not make them happy. Only 12 out of the 25 men surveyed, or 48%, stated they were happy with their marriage. The data support the findings of Boden, Fischer, and Niehuis (2010) that males are more likely than women to be satisfied in marriage. The same study discovered that men and women in marriages had different levels of marital satisfaction. The degree of approbation is intimately related to how well the reasons for being married have been met because men and women engage in marriage for entirely different reasons.
