How would one thinks or knows his or her marriage is more like in prison?
I would agree to some extent.
Marriage can only be a prison if you’re married to someone abusive, misunderstanding or toxic, who hurts you and ignores you when you are in pain. However being married to someone loving and supportive shouldn’t feel that way. Note that, marriage isn’t for everyone.
Though, marriage is a social institution that we have become socialized to view as an almost essential part of the progression of life.
I’m not against people getting married if they want to, but have you been able to check well whom your are partnering with. I feel that there should be fluidity and flexibility in marriage.
There is absolutely nothing stopping married couple from leading an amazing life and not as a boyfriend, girlfriend kind of relationship.
This whole concept of marriage, ‘If you like it forever, you should have put a ring on it’ baffles me a lot. Why because same partner would later tied down in stone.
You can be a perfect husband to your wife (vice versa), and yet, all your feelings seemed almost invalidated because of pressure, cheat, misunderstanding in the marriage.
I’m not saying don’t get married.
However, I am saying that don’t feel that you have to do it because society expects you to, or because you feel that without getting married your life isn’t legitimate enough, but walk into the right partner to avoid be imprisoned.

Abednego Tettey Osabutey: “It’s an institution which the certificate of success is given even before the course of study begins. This means you can’t fail, you must do all possible to pass. It has become a prison to some in our days because the basic requirement to enter such a noble and holy institution has been left unattended to. Marriage is for the MATURED and not the AGED. Many immature grownups now venture into marriage institutions without knowing and understanding the rudiments of the institution so they become disappointed and start misbehaving after 3 months of marriage when they realize their expectations were not met. Marriage is an institution of sacrifice, so if you can’t sacrifice but rather live on your own and personal terms don’t go into it. Many people now live their single lives in their marital homes so though they are married in effect they are single.
Many individuals of today especially our ladies use years to prepare for their weddings which is just few hour program in a day more than they do prepare for their marriages which is a lifelong, so they have grand and successful weddings but woefully fail in their marriages. The one who instituted marriage is God, actually it’s the first institution of God to humans after creation, we must go to Him for insight and wisdom to sustain our marriages and make it work.”
Yussif Bawah: “If is a prison or cell then you are immature.”
Lastly, you can have a loving and stable marriage, only its genuine.
