Nowadays, divorce rates in the US is ridiculously high, most couples don't know how to maturely work their relationship problems out. All my life, all I see marriage is just a huge waste of money on a so-called "commitment" when it's really nothing more than just a simple last name-change for the bride and sharing half of each other's income or the lower income groom/bride ends up taking more money from their husband/wife (who has a higher income) after divorce. It's hard to trust any man or women nowadays for meaningful relationship.

No, I don't think it's pointless. I hope to get married someday but it won't be for quite a while yet. A lot of marriages fail because the couples marry too young, rush into it, or are too lazy to actually work through their problems. If a couple truly loves each other and are dedicated to staying together, it shouldn't be an issue.
I wouldn't marry someone I barely know, I would have to be in a relationship with him for many years before I would consider marriage. That way, we aren't still in the "honeymoon" phase and we both really KNOW each other (both our good AND bad qualities) in order to be ready for marriage. Marriage can be a beautiful thing if the couple is serious about it and truly love, respect, and value each other.0
