I don't see why you need a ring and a piece of paper to commit to someone. I don't see the difference between a couple who have been together 12 years and a MARRIED couple who have been together 12 years. Just the couple who's not married don't need to deal with legal shit if they break up.
I feel a lot of people don't even necessarily want a marriage but they want a wedding. They want the dress and they want the flowers and they want the pretty ring.
But that's just my personal opinion. If you want to get married, thats cool.

I think many people just see it as the next step & apart from that it's just a nice tradition so if you love & trust that person and know you wanna spend your life with them why not take that final step and be husband and wife on paper?
Personally, it's not a must for me but it would be very nice to get married given I find the right person for that someday.5

Not unless you absolutely WANT to have children of your own and establish a family of your own, but of course like everything it comes with inheritant and unavoidable risks. If you marry, then the possibility of being divorce or even widowed automatically exists no matter how big or small of a chance it will happen or that you think or feel will happen.
I can ask the same question that is more deeper and existential in nature. Why even procreate and have children and bring more life when all life comes with the possibility of suffering, pain, illnesses, hardships, frustrations, disappointments, with all the odds stacked against somneone from the very beginning before someone is even brought into existence? And worse of all ALL life and births will eventually end and come with an inevitable death!
And it is inevitable regardless of what we do or don't do? Why wasn't all the problems completely fixed or corrected somehow before someone was brought into existence or at least more than half of it solved before someone was brought into existence?
And how exactly is it fair and not selfish to make the choice to bring someone into existence here, when they had never asked, wanted, desired, demanded, wanted to come here in the first place? And also because they never authorized anyone to bring them here in the first place? Well we know that they can't since they had not exist yet. But what exactly is it that makes this a justified and non-selfish decision? Because sometimes people may becomes very disappointed with this reality and world and possibly had gotten fucked over the very moment they were brought into this reality and is subjected to all the ills and harms that will come to them over the course of their lifetime and they absolutely can't avoid it or change it in any form or way somehow.
The only answer I can really think of in the logical sense is people only do what they do only because they "want" to do it or "desire" to do it, and because they "Could" do it. Whether for marriage, sex, family, procreating and having children and pretty much anything else. it's all about desires and the fact that it is "possible" that they Can do whatever they want to and choose to do.0
