Marriage


After reading the article, my opinion on today’s tradition of marriage is still the same.  In today’s society the thought of arranged marriages is hard to fathom.  Unlike the times of Ancient Rome, we have the freedom to choose the people we want to be with and the person we want to marry. Not having this freedom would change the dynamic of our culture. For example, people would not have the opportunities to meet new people and try different things. It would keep us from experiencing the passion, commitment and love of others. Also, in my eyes the tradition of men being able to marry more than one person and have more than one sexual partner is unthinkable. I think this because I was raised in an environment where I was taught to respect and be faithful to your partner. Cheating on your partner is considered to be adultery and isn’t something to be proud of.
 This article made me feel fortunate to grow up in this generation and allowed me the freedoms of marriage.

About Me

My name Is Evan Sheehan, I am 18 years old and I was born and raised in Boston Massachusetts. In my family I am the youngest of five siblings, I have two brothers Patrick and Matt and two sisters Kate and Shaley. I like having a big family because there was always someone I could talk to if I needed anything, and they always looked out for me. Growing up I attended Central Catholic High School in Lawrence Mass. I played Football and Basketball for the varsity teams. Junior year my basketball team won the D1 state championship, it was an incredible experience.  After all my sport seasons were over I got a job working for a towing company. I worked for them all the way up till the day I left for college. I really enjoyed working with towing company because I experience a lot of things. Everyday was a different from the last and I really liked not having to do the same thing over and over. However when I wasn’t working I liked hanging out with friends, playing sports and having a good time. My friends and I would try to do different thing everyday, we went skydiving one day and cliff jumping the next.
