As Megan Markle and Prince Harry got married yesterday, survey feedback opinion on British Monarchy popularity in Europe and worldwide has declined.

The royal wedding is too media-saturated to ignore. However, the mainstream broadcasting media and newspapers were mostly busy focusing on irrelevant details such as Megan Markle’s ethnic origins.

Maya Angelou on love once said: “Love recognises no barriers…”

It appears that the British monarchy is making a diplomatic move to acknowledge the rise of the Pan-Africanism movement, something of which anti-monarchists in particular are taking note.

Pan-Africanism is a worldwide intellectual movement that aims to encourage and strengthen bonds of solidarity between all people of African descent.

On the other hand, those with a more rational or factual approach believe that the British Monarchy’s popularity stems from its ability to evolve. Firstly with Kate Middleton’s acceptance as a commoner, and now that of Megan Markle who is of part-African descent.

Sadly, very little has been said about the importance of marriage and what it actually means and its significance.

Beyond the wedding cake, royal dressage, high profile guests and a wedding certificate, why is marriage so important?

Below are few reasons why marriage is important.

  1. Physical and spiritual values

Marriage is more than a physical union; it is also a spiritual and emotional union. It is a commitment –theoretically a lifelong one. A lack of commitment, infidelity or incompatibility, destroy marriage.

  1. Unique bond

When a man and woman get married, they become life partners as they move through the challenges of life together.

  1. Virtue

The bond of marriage gives a couple the support to defeat temptation by engaging in deep physically, emotionally, spiritually and satisfying love.

  1. Parenting

When a couple have a child or children, they should be raised in a healthy marriage, to see and experience the ultimate benefits of a strong family.

  1. Love

At its core, love is a decision to be committed to another person. It is far more than a fleeting emotion –such as infatuation– as portrayed on television, the big screen, and romance novels. Feelings come and go, but a true decision to be committed should last forever.

  1. Humility

An essential building block of a healthy marriage is the ability to admit that you are not perfect, that you will make mistakes.

  1. Time

Relationships don’t work without the investment of time and effort. Never have, never will. Any successful relationship requires intentional quality time together.

As a result, a wedding is always a reminder that family values are surviving the vicissitudes of our modern era.

The Bridge Magazine wishes a happily married life to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
