Things that I Find Strange in the Society
Society is the place we live in together with the people we deal with. Only as a part of society can we can study, communicate, obtain experiences and learn to overcome difficulties. As our society became wider, we have acquire the things or habits that people have contributed to the society. Although everyone is unique, society shapes the lives of its people.

Another is that when a marriage happens when two people love each other unconditionally. But then, not all marriage happen for the same reason. There are other people who marry a person for their own benefit.

There are also people who are getting married because they are obliged to for the reason that they will become parents soon. Not all people accept marriage for love. Other people just marry a person for acquiring the benefits or consequences they get.
