I was brought up by a conservative Palestinian mother who taught us that marriage was the only way for us to be complete human beings.
Now I'm not sure. I think the whole wedding racket is stupid beyond comprehension. A cheesy waste of money where women desperately try and assert their superiority over other women by proving that they conned some poor sap into marrying them and paying for the whole charade. All these girls wear the exact same ugly meringue dress and obsess over place settings and monogrammed napkins.
I love men. I have been in only a few relationships. I have no desire to marry or have children. Most older couples seem to treat their relationships as a sophisticated financial arrangement (they work to buy stuff they don't need together). I don't see a reason why people who don't love eachother anymore shouldn't part ways. I personally wouldn't want some man to be stuck with me just because we owned a house together. I hate owning things and love to be free of material possessions. Why can't people be like this?

Marriage is an essential part of life because it seals the commitment both a woman and a man have shared with each other. If a person is not willing to do this, it's alright because it shows they are not commitment material and are willing admiting it. For a guy looking for long term commitment, it would be a signal to move on to another girl and hopefully find one that is willing to commit. Dating serves this purpose, to find a woman or man that has the qualities you like or are willing to accept in a person.0
