The way I see it, you were already in a committed relationship, probably for years if you're taking that next step. You know you love each other. Why is a ring, a ceremony, and a piece of paper needed in the relationship? It feels like a wedding is just proving your love to everybody else, even though you're the only two people who need to know it. What other reason is there besides tax benefits?
What changes once you've taken that step from dating to married? Is it jsut what you think you're supposedto do when you love each other as that next step? Is it really just for show? Thoughts please. Perhaps I'm being silly in thinking nothing changes, but I can't think of what the real difference would be besides tax benefits and bigger consequences if you break up.

There really is no point honestly. If you really love each other, a ring is not going to make it any better. Pus divorces are always messy. My sister has a friend whos parents have divcorced and now i guess the girl has tried to commit scuicide because of the problems it has caused. If they never married the guy could have just left with out going through all the emotional shit. The mom could have just told the daughter that he just disappeared instead he won't see her because he wants nothing to do with the mom.1

I absolutely agree with you. If two people know they love each other, they don't need to prove it to anyone.
Some people get married because they feel it's important, they want to celebrate their love with their family and friends. And they feel that the relationship is more serious if they are married.
But, to be honest I think that weddings are a waste of money.1
