It's kind of the last 2 more or less.
The current state of our reality and our world, The economic inequalities and the instability makes everything difficult. Other than that, personal psychological issues on existence, life, meaning, purpose, and being a mere mortal human being are all the various factors as to why I choose "I'm never getting married / I don't want to get married ever". It had always made me think deeply and question:
"Do I really want to conform with society's expectations of marriage and children and jump on the bandwagon like everyone else did or claim that it was the 'right' thing to do, by getting married and starting their own family and having their own children together?"
"What guarantees are there? And what was all of that really for?"
If so, what is really the whole point of that other than to bring someone else into this miserable reality and world and have to suffer and go through all the trouble and hardships and challenges to only have nothing but a Death waiting for them? Is that not the end goal of a marriage to begin with? To reproduce and "create" life? But all life comes with Suffering GUARANTEED?
And what if they get really depressed about it and don't like the way that all of this is the way it is and that it was my decision to bring them here into this world by marrying and having children of my own?
I figured by choosing never to marry and to not have children is the only way to remedy and reduce those same problems that I am thinking about and feeling.
Of course if life had been fair to begin with, and that everything was a utopian type of world with very little to no suffering and absolutely no possibilities of death, or at least fewer possibilites of death (such as if we ONLY can died from from Aging and Natural Causes), maybe then I would have thoughts and feelings that are substantially different and my perspective would be different on topics and subjects such as marriage, family, children or offspring, etc.1

Considering that marriage doesn't bring anything good the the actual bond people have vs what awful things it can bring in case of a split, I'm not at all interested in getting married.
Been with my love for 4 years now. People are still asking when are we finally going to tie the knot, but that question is getting more and more rare.
The longer you are with someone without getting married, the fewer times that question comes up in social circles. People just assume you're staying together regardless of the paperwork.0
