I'm already married but I didn't actually ever want to be married so much outside of the context of a relationship.
The idea of turning into a married man kind of terrified me, thinking my life would become so boring and with no sense of spice. I had that stereotypical image of a sub-urban married man who loves mowing his lawn while refusing to go out late at night because of the curfew set by his wife and kids.
I really didn't want to be that guy.
But I found over the years that I warmed up to the idea of marriage after living for a while with a woman I loved and got along with really well, and reaching a stable point in terms of income to be able to buy a house. For us, and given the dynamics of our relationship and the independent lifestyles my wife and I lead, it turned out to be much nicer than I thought it would be. Of course I can't just go out and splurge on drinks and debauchery anymore, but I still have my share of fun on weekends.1

I want to be in a long term relationship, but I don't want to get married.
I don't see the point of getting married. A ring around my finger and a piece of paper that says I'm married to someone doesn't prove that I love him more or less.
Plus, I think weddings are just a waste of money.2
