I'm taking a economic course over the break and with no prior experience with economics, I'm struggling with coming up ideas for a prompt in relations to why people marry.
I thought the idea of specialisation of labour would be a good point and maybe risk pooling in order to lower shock from a sudden cut of a partner's income, but I'm struggling to come up with other "economic" reasons?
Do they have to be related to the theories, maybe complementaries in consumption which is where people marry others with same hobbies or pursuing the 'perfect' partner in order to pass on the 'best genes' etc?
These feel more like a normal reasons, with some relation to biology and maybe psychology and lacks the 'study on allocating resource scarcity' that defines economics.
Feel free to comment on my ideas, on whether you would disagree with any on my reasons as that would also help a ton!
