I am firmly anti-marriage so I just don't get why people prescribe to these idealistic views. Do you think your views on marriage is influence on your background and childhood? I would definitely agree that it does. For example if you're in a conservative house, marriage will be a great option but if you're more liberal or free-spirited then perhaps not.
Let me know what you think...=)

I think it depends on the person. Me and my sisters grew up in a very consecutive household and me and my oldest sister are married, but my older sister has a baby and is only living with her boyfriend with no talk of marriage.
I love being married :) I love to say "my husband". I don't think it's any different than wanting to have kids. It's just something that you want to do :) I don't condemn those that are against marriage or don't want to get married (obviously since me and my sister have a great relationship and she will be the godmother of our baby). Plus, for us, we have to be married in order for me to get any benefits from my husband since that's how the military works. But we were together before he enlisted.
I think some people (not saying you) don't like marriage because it's harder to walk away from the relationship. You have to go through a divorce. So it scares some people to be "stuck" with someone and make a lifelong commitment.
FYI, it's not an idealistic view, at least not for me and my husband. We have definitely had our ups and downs after being together for four years and have struggled with things that most people don't struggle with so early in marriage (only been married for two years). But we KNOW we want to spend the rest of our lives together, and will fight through whatever comes our way and NEVER take the easy way out.
Like I said, I love being married to my husband. It's most definitely not a walk in the park, but we didn't expect it to be. We knew that we would have hard times, and have to fight through many difficult things. And there will be more things to come. But we know we can make it through, therefore we decided to make that life long commitment to each other in front of our closest friends and family.0
