I've been watching Say Yes to the Dress all day today, mostly because I'm visiting my family for Christmas break so i've been passing time with mind numbing television.
It made me wonder.. What's the point of marriage? I feel like it was used as a status thing back in the day, for money and family reasons, etc. We live in such a modern society, where things are more casual and stuff. I thought I wanted to get married, but now I don't see the point. It's probably stressful and boring after a while. Some girl in my class (who is married) was telling me that she doesn't even know why people get married. Clearly, you love the person and you want them forever.. but why not date forever? Or make that promise together without the "marriage" label?
What do you think?

Or maybe don't make promises of being with that person forever. My parents' marriage suck and I could tell they don't even love each other anyways. If that's how marriage is going to be like; talking to him as a friendly roommate type relationship then I would be wasting my time.
I'd rather have a normal relationship where there is no guarantee that I'm gonna end up being forever with him. I don't like promising if in the end there is a 50% that it might not happen. Overall, I don't care about marriage.1
