Ladies what is the point of getting married? I mean I find it pointless, its like having a girlfriend just that she is not called your girlfriend but your wife... I find that some females turn wild after marriage (some guys too), its like they ask for a divorce, but they were so much calm and collected when they were simply a girlfriend... so why bother?
please avoid the word commitment in your answer.
Maybe, I might change my mind at 40 ;)

There are benefits to marriage that simply aren't available in common-law relationships. Many will say that being common-law is just the same, but it's not. Marriage can be beneficial when you're asking for loans, your insurance premiums go down, you are creating social capital, and are legally secure with your spouse should anything happen to you or them. It's also considered a virtue still. To call someone your husband or wife shows the obligation and promise you have to each other. Most women end up being tired of being called the "girlfriend" as it still has a bit of a juvenile sound to it. (This is what my female friends tell me.) They want to be regarded as more. The word wife will do it, a ring on the finger is code to everyone that you are bound to someone. Marriage is actually a good thing, not a bad thing. Read some statistics on the health and wealth benefits married couples have over singles. To other people socially or professionally, it's a sign that you have made a choice to be bound to one person which shows your pledge to take one person to be your partner for life legally - which says something about your marriage and how you feel about your partner.2
