Marriage, firmly entrenched in tradition and societal norms, has long stood as a cornerstone of stable societies. Nevertheless, in the contemporary context, it is judicious to engage in a critical examination of whether we are genuinely upholding the family's sanctity and the integrity of this union. Throughout history, marriage has functioned as a legal and social covenant, providing the foundation for procreation, inheritance, and familial alliances. It has often been revered as a sacred connection, a fusion of hearts and minds, and a solemn commitment. In recent years, the landscape of our society has witnessed profound changes. Factors such as individualism, materialism, shifting gender roles, and economic self-sufficiency have prompted inquiries into the relevance and viability of marriage and the family unit. The erosion of moral values, postponement of marriage, and a surge in divorces further underscore these challenges. In this article, we embark on an erudite exploration within the realm of marital unions to ascertain whether the existing legislative frameworks adequately address the complexities and challenges surrounding contemporary families and effectively accommodate the evolving dynamics.
