Getting married is the sunnah of our Holy -Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). It was narrated by Anas bin Malik:
A group of three men came to the houses of the wives of the Prophet (peace be upon him). asking how the Prophet worshipped (Allah), and when they were informed about that, they considered their worship insufficient and said, “Where are we from the Prophet (where do we stand compared with the Holy Prophet peace be upon him) as his past and future sins have been forgiven.” Then one of them said, “I will offer the prayer throughout the night forever.” The other said, “I will fast throughout the year and will not break my fast.” The third said, “I will keep away from the women and will not marry forever.” Allah’s Apostle (peace be upon him) came to them and said, “Are you the same people who said so-and-so?
وَاللهِ إِنِّي َلأَخْشَاكُمْ ِللهِ وَأَتْقَاكُمْ لَهُ لَكِنْ أَصُومُ وَأُفْطِرُ ، وَأُصَلِّي وَأَنَامُ وَأَتَزَوَّجُ النِّسَاءَ فَمَنْ رَغِبَ عَنْ سُنَّتِي فَلَيْسَ مِنِّي
By Allah, I am more submissive to Allah and more afraid of Him than you; yet I fast and break my fast, I do sleep and I also marry women. So he who does not follow my tradition in religion, is not from me (not one of my followers).” 
Sometimes getting married becomes obligatory on couples who fear that they might commit fornication. There is no concept of monasticism in Islam. Monasticism means refusing to get married in order to worship Allah. Some Ulama divide the ruling on marriage into five namely:
