Q-7. Write a précis of the following passage and assign a suitable title: (20)

The psychological, even the intellectual, benefits of marriage seem to me to be enormous. If a man has lived for some years in the closest intimacy with a woman, he learns to look at life from her point of view as well as his own. A man who cannot do this is like a man blind in one eye. He doesn’t appreciate the solidity and depth of the world before him. The ideas I am putting before you hare are largely my wife’s or at any rate, family ideas, rather than unmarried man; and few women seem to me to be psychologically complete till they have become mothers. During the Middle Ages Europe was far too much influenced by celibate men. Today much too big a part in public life is played by celibate women, and too little by mothers. I find few ideas more genuinely disgusting than that held by many education authorities that a woman ceases to be suitable as a teacher when she becomes a mother, because I have so high as opinion of marriage at its best, I think that it should be possible to end it if it fails for any of a number of reasons, instead of, as now, for one only. This is called “undermining” the sanctity of marriage”.

Good Luck
No matter how fast i run or how far i go it wont escape me, pain, misery, emptiness.
