So why get married? Marriage is the last thing you can do with your partner in a relationship, so doesn't marriage signify the end? Could that be considered a bad thing? Please share your opinions on the purpose and practicality of marriage.

Marriage isn't the same thing as being in a long term exclusive relationship. Technically yes it is, but that is all marriage is, the legal declaration of it gives it a deeper meaning. You are declaring eternal love for one another in front of your family, friends, and God, you are also making it recognized by the government. It has a deeper meaning over just a piece of paper and saying a few words. Some people choose not to get married and that is their choice. Marriage also makes people work a little harder. I say that because if a couple is married they will be more apt to work out their problems over a couple just as committed to each other and not married.1
