Governments makes laws all time that implies living together is the same thing as getting married, you can risk losing the majority of your stuff even without getting married and I have trouble coming up with any advantage unlocking through marriage.
Finally, a couple living together can be exactly as close as a married couple can especially if they have done so in an even amount of time compared to a married couple. The divorce rate speaks for itself too.
So my question is, why even bother?

I know tons of people will disagree but I regard marriage as a failing constituiton that is obsolete in society. Getting married isn't the default of everyone's life anymore, it's just a choice that is dependent upon the individual (at least in the Western world)1
