What do you think this poem is about?

For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.

Marriage is not a mockery.

Man and woman fell in love to commit,
Married to commit and begot to commit.
They were together throughout to commit.
The other one remained as a widow
Or a widower, again to commit.
The commitment was the purpose of life.
With escapism in mind don’t enter
Into marriage and make a mockery of it.

    the people are desperate to get married and then they are very desperate to get out of it. If there are no marriage laws and protection.. think of the situation here...

    commitment itself is good or bad who knows, but it is a bare necessity in marriage, thanks. good write.
