A very good morning to the chairperson, honourable judges, my lovely oppositions, timekeepers and my fellow friends. Today, I would like to present the motion about ‘Being Single is better than getting married’.
A very simple question, what is ‘marriage’ and what is ‘single’? According to the Cambridge dictionary, marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman which they live as husband and wife that is legally accepted. Single is a male or a female who is not married. Ladies and gentleman, are you aware that problems have plagued families as a result of marriage?
Getting married is not as simple as it looks—it is definitely not just the organization of a wedding ceremony, nor just about having sexual intercourse with your other half. Taking full responsibility of the children and their welfare is also equally important in a marital life. It is both a prerequisite and a duty which those who want to have children cannot avoid. The extreme difficulty in accomplishing this duty is indisputable and this can be easily proven by the challenges modern parents face today. Money consists of a critical part of today’s modern life and thus, many parents nowadays find it really difficult, even challenging, to achieve a balance between spending time with their children and earning the money necessary for the family’s daily spending and basic needs such as housing, food and educational needs. Due to the parents’ conscious neglect or unconscious blind eye to the children, children are painfully disappointed as their parents are not spending quality time with them. Quality time spent with children is not only integral to cultivating the children’s inner values and mental horizons; they play a groundbreaking role in strengthening parent-child relationships. Thus, lack of quality time would hinder the children from being cultivated and all-rounded and force the child’s relationship with parents to remain in a state of fragility.
