The family is a small society that starts with the union of man and woman, and by the birth of a child it becomes firm. Marriage is a natural need of a person, and by the marriage ceremony it becomes legitimate.
Islam gives importance for establishment of family, and considers it to be sacred and the Islamic traditions consider it as the best institution.
Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) narrates from the holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) that the best institution liked by the Almighty Allah, is that which is founded on marriage.(1)
۱- Wasael, Vol. 14. P. 3
Imam Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from the holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) that nothing is dearer to Allah than a home that is happy through marriage. And nothing is more hated by Allah than the home, which is destroyed by a divorce.(1)
Marriage is a valuable practice (sunnat) that the holy Prophet and the Infallible Imams have emphasized it.
The holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) said:
“Marriage is my practice, and whoever refuses it is not from my followers.”(2)
Amirul Mo-mineen (a.s.) said: “Get married.
Since the messenger of Allah told whoever likes his practice, should know that it is his practice.”(3)
Islam does not consider marriage as an animal act, and does not preach Puritanism. According to Islam marriage is a source for purifying the soul, and its discipline, and a factor for keeping away from sin and gaining proximity to Allah.
Imam Sadiq (a.s.) said that a short pray of a married person is better than a very long pray of an unmarried person.(4)
The Prophet (s.a.w.a.) said that a short pray of a married person is better than the worship of a single person who prays in the nights and fasts in the days.(5)
Imam Sadiq (a.s.) narrates, “the worst of your departed ones, are those who died single. “(6)

From the view point of Islam, marriage and family are important task and has many benefits. Some of them are mentioned below:

۱٫ A MEANS OF FRIENDSHIP AND LOVE
In this difficult life, man requires peace, tranquility, and love. He needs a person who would be the trustee of his secrets, his heartedly friend, and a supporter. So that he can make friendship with her and benefit from her love, help, and sincere support. He needs a person who would be his partner in health and illness, prosperity and difficulties, happiness and sorrow, poverty and wealth, and in all circumstances; to be loyal, sympathetic, and caring to him.
And who is better than a wife to fulfill these needs, and what place is better than the home. The Qur’an says:
Among His signs is [the fact] that He has created spouses for you from among yourselves so that you may console yourselves with them. He has planted affection and mercy between you; in that are sings for people who think things over.(11- Surah Rum 30:21 )

۲٫ A MEANS OF CHASTITY AND PROTECTION FROM SINS
Human beings naturally need sex to satisfy their desires. If it is not satisfied legally, then its control will be difficult and takes a person towards misguidance and sin. On this basis, marriage is a good and safe means for satisfying sexual desires, and a safeguard from bad behavior.
The holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) said that whoever wants to meet Allah pure and clean, should marry.(1)
Imam Sadiq (a.s.) quotes from the Holy Prophet that he said: Whoever marries, protects his religion.(2)
Imam Moosa Ibn Ja’far narrates through his forefathers, from the holy Prophet that, Every young man that marries in the beginning of his youth, the Satan cries: ‘Oh! This young has protected two thirds of his religion.’ Then for the remaining one third he should observe piety.

۳٫ A MEANS OF HEALTH OF BODY AND MIND
Sexual desire and its satisfaction is one of the natural needs that are necessary at the time of need and would keep health on the body and mind. Any control and suppress of it makes a person depressed and creates an abnormal condition. Many diseases like mental illness, depression, nervousness, confusion, fear, negative thinking, lack of confidence, and anger; could be due to suppressing the sexual desires. That is why marriage, at the proper time, and satisfying sexual desires through legal ways, can be one of the factors for the health of body and mind.
۱- Wasael, Vol. 14, P. 6
۲- Wasael, Vol. 14, P. 5
The holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) said:
Marry those men and women who are single, so that Allah will make their behavior good, and increase their sustenance and increase their decency.(1)

۴٫ HELP THE WELL BEING OF THE SOCIETY
If young people marry at the beginning of their youth, they would be attached to and be warm with their family and remain safe from bad ethics. This will decrease the crossing of limits with other women, delusion of girls and women, fornication, homosexuality, masturbation and also drug addiction, killing, crime and stealing. On this basis marriage, at the proper time, has a great effect on health and safety of the environment. Due to this, Islam advises to the parents that they should arrange the marriage of the singles.
The Qur’an says:
Marry off any single persons among you, as well as your honorable servants and maids. If they are poor, God will enrich them from His bounty. God is Boundless, Aware.(2)
The holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) said:
The child has three rights on the father: a good name for him, to teach him writing, and when he reaches the suitable age the father should arrange for his marriage.(3)

۵٫ A MEANS OF PRODUCE OF GENERATION
Islam pays attention to the birth of children and increase of generations, and that is one of the important aims of marriage.
Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) said:
What does prevent a believer from marriage? May be Allah would give him a child who makes the earth heavy by the saying of “La ilaha illallah (There is no God except Allah)”.(1)
The Prophet of Islam (s.a.w.a.) said:
Do Marry! So that you can increase the numbers so that on the Day of Judgment I will be proud of my nation over the previous nations, even with a miscarriage (aborted fetus).(2)

۶٫ A MEANS OF PLEASURE AND SATISFACTION
One of the important benefits of marriage is pleasure and satisfaction of sexual desires through legal ways. The sexual pleasure is one of the best pleasures in the world. And in Islam it is not bad; rather it is legally practical, but if there is an intention of divine proximity, there is reward for it. Sometimes it even becomes obligatory.
۱- Wasael, Vol. 14, P. 253
۲- Bihar, Vol. 103, P. 220
Marriage is a sacred relationship that takes place due to some factors:
(۱) Acceptance of man and woman.
(۱) Permission of father (or grandfather), in case the girl is virgin.
(۲) Fixing of dowry. Dowry can be a property, cash, credit, or any other wealth, less or more.
