    I think most of the people who answered this missed the point of the quote.

    "Everybody should get married atleast once in their life time, No one deserves to be happy all their life"

    Means if you are married, then you will be unhappy during the marriage.

    I think he's quoting the viewpoint of a cynic who's had bad marriages. A lot are bad like that because many people are immature in relationships, and marry for the wrong reasons, but at the same time, some people end up in really good marriages which do not break apart like that.

    On the flip side though, no marriage is perfect, so all will have problems, then again life is the same (although I do not believe this interpretation was considered by the writer).

    Assuming you are judging true or false on the basis of "everyone needs to experience something which may not be pleasant but is a part of life" (and not whether marriage is or is not bad), then I would say the statement is true to an extent (I agree, but I do not think anyone should be forced to do anything, only advised, hence I disagree with the use of "should").

    Convuluted answer I suppose, but given how Lord Bryon worded it, there are a few different things to say.

    Or to paraphrase;

    True, but I think he's being overly cynical and has debateable premises for his argument.

  • It might have been true once upon a time but not in today's here today, gone tomorrow world. Why get married when now days people divorce the second things go wrong, unhappiness just leads to more wasted money on lawyers. Get married only if you are truly in love, it's for some people and not for others.

    Prejudiced Question to start with - so - are you serious or just looking for support for the idea that marriage is the cause of unhappiness?

    Not being married and having had a relationship that didn't work out, I've become wary, but, still I think marriage can be a positive and worthwhile experience, and not just for the kids.

    My parents were alternately content and miserable with each other for years - and then had many relatively happy years after the kids left, so that's my example.

    My mom told me that when they were first married they were happy for a few years - but then it got complicated and not so good for about 25 years - and for the last 25 years at the end again very happy.

    She said that at first you think you are going to get everything you want from the relationship to make you happy, then you find out that the other person is not giving you everything you want - and you become unhappy. You work hard at trying to get the other person to change and become the person you want them to be, someone who will make you happy. But that doesn't work. Then if you choose to progress and become more mature, you start to work at trying to make the other person happy instead of trying to make the other person make you happy. Finally, she told me, she started caring more about making him happy and he became the same with her - and then they were both really happy together.

    I've read recent statistics claiming that married people live longer and have better health than unmarried people. My Dad lived to 81 and my Mom to 90.

    So, I would say Yes to your question, but No to the prejudiced focus.

    The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.

    so true or false it doesn't matter because once you realise that you're alone in the world... even with brothers, sisters, etc... you will be miserable and will want to have your own mate and family so that you aren't alone... then when you get married, you have times when you will miss the single life... but with all the bs that goes into dating and breaking up and all that jazz... marriage is always better even with the occasional argument over stupid crap that you forget a month later.

    I would say True. One must learn that happiness does not come from having someone to "complete" you, as so many people think, and thus get married. Marriage is a work in progress from beginning to end, and there will be happy and unhappy times throughout.

    If you've never experienced unhappiness, how are you to know if you are truly happy?

    To say the very least it sounds as if LORD BYRON had a very low opinion of the opposite sex. Maybe didn't know how or care to get along with his mate. This is without a doubt a false

    statement as far as I'm concerned. I'm a firm believer,"It is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all."

    A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOURS

    Agree and disagree -

    I think everyone should get married, but be real selective about who you choose. I've been single (a few times), in a bad marriage and am in a really good one. I don't believe that staying single will necessarily bring happiness - it's all about the choices you make.

    My interpretation from what was written by the author:

    Once someone get married happiness will seize in one's life. In life no one can be happy all their life regardless of whether they're married or not. Base on that, my answer will have to be false.

    I believe those are two separate comments, and, although in this case they are not supposed to be, its obviously a bit of a joke.... well, it is and it isn't, if you know what I mean... Its satirical, if you like.....

    I would deem it true or false, pending on the person

    True up to a point... but as you stated , no one deserves to be happy all their life. If you are in a good marriage you will be happy..Sometimes when You have been with someone in marriage like for nearly 40 years it gets old and you just feel obligated to stay with them cause you dont have anywhere else to go..or no one else to turn to..
