MARRIAGE ANXIETY AMONG YOUNG ADULT IN TERTIARY INSTITUTION

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 Background to the Study

Across the world, it seems a lot of importance is attached to the institution of marriage. This is because it forms a platform for raising families and a family performs such important function as being a therapeutic setting for social support, in addition to its economic and reproductive functions (Ogunleye, 2014). As adolescents become young adults, they tend to begin to explore various aspects of life that include dating, forming intimate relationships and thinking of marriage in the future. According to Erikson (1982), the major task facing young adults is dealing with the psychosocial stage of intimacy versus isolation. Researchers posit that people resolve these identity issues by marrying and rearing children or by entering into relationships that allow them to develop identities based on caring for others (Montgomery, 2005, Dyke & Adams 1990). Young adults seem to have the developmental need for relatedness. Many young adults see relationships with peers are a major source of emotional support and therefore enhance their psychological wellbeing (Patterson 2008, Kefalas, Furstenberg and Napolitano, 2011). Falling in love, maintaining intimate relationships and eventual marriage are some of the goals young adults accomplish in their interactions with others, (Kefalas et al 2011). They further established that today‘s young adults have a greater discretion about whether or not to marry. They further stated that where young adults have been found to be appreciative of sexual relationships, they are non-committal about transiting these relationships into marriage. 2 Patterson (2008) posited that the meaning attached to marriage is influenced by different factors. Reasons why people fall in love and marry vary across cultures. Family scholars (Kefalas et al, 2011) identified a number of conditions that have reshaped young people‘s notions of marriage. Some of the significant influences affecting the timing and attractiveness of marriage include: schooling beyond the teen years, the liberalization of sexual behaviour, the availability of reliable methods of contraception, challenging gender roles, the threat of divorce and acceptability of remaining single (Patterson (2008). Interestingly, despite the changing attitudes towards the institution of marriage among different societies, the proportion of young people opting for marriage is not different from what it was at the beginning of the last century (Tumuti, Ireri & Tumuti, 2012).

Statement of the Problem

Marriage is a revered institution and as such one should look forward to a glorious day one would enter into it so as to consummate the sacred relationship. The joy knows no bound when one courts, engages or marries a spouse who shares common affinities with one. However, due to the advancement in technology and the world gradually turning to a ―global village‖, the institution of marriage seems to be the worst hit as it is gradually witnessing a downward decline as a result of mundane issues bothering on lack of trust, infidelity, joblessness on the part of one of the spouses, career drive, irreconcilable differences, children outside wedlock, single parenthood, sexually transmitted diseases, separation, divorce and eventual loss of interest in marriage. The experiences an individual has relating to marriage, either from print or electronic media or those gathered from significant others such as siblings and ones immediate parents go a long way in shaping the interest or aggravating the fear of marriage. The state of one‘s financial status also occasion the fear of marriage as people look more at how to sustain the marriage than organizing the ceremony
