Marriage freaks me out and I steer clear of it. My boyfriend and I have a child, own a place together and have been together over 4 years and I love him dearly. Most people think he is my husband or they call me by his last name and I have to correct them. Anyone else fine with just cohabitation/ long term without marriage?

I do not fear marriage or commitment. If you are a goarounder and living together before marriage, then of course marriage is not going to be anything special and most people will only look at the legal aspect. People who live together statistically previously to getting married are more unsatisfied with their marriage. "According to statistics gathered by US Attorney Legal Services, living together before getting married doesn't accomplish the goal that couples think that it will. A couple who does not live together prior to getting married has a 20 percent chance of being divorced within five years. If the couple has lived together beforehand, that number jumps to 49 percent."0
