  • Well seeing how people can bring themselves to commit regardless of marriage
    I say the only actual benefit is financial reason
    That being said I still would like to be married

  • The only advantage I can think of in my country is exemption from inheritance tax (though the inheritance tax threshold is quite high anyway).

  • For men? MAYBE a few tax breaks. That really is it. The cons outweigh the pros, for men, when it comes to marriage.

  • Having someone to bounce ideas off of, and to talk to. Having that different perspective is amazing.

    Financially, there's a lot we can do as a team that would be very difficult alone.

    • Those aren't the only advantages, of course, but they're probably the biggest ones that come to mind most often.

    • thats why dowry is considered evil

    • You asked for advantages, and as someone who has been married nearly 18 years, I listed several. Pooling of financial resources is an important one, but please realize I never said it's a reason unto itself to get married.

      As far as I'm concerned, dowries are considered evil because they treat one partner (usually the woman) as a liability and, in many ways, property. That's an entirely different situation from a marriage between equals.

  • Marriage vs Love
