Now first to make the point clear, this is meant to be a question about marriage itself. It is an actual question and I do not intend to flame on "marriage". I was recently thinking about this question and couldn't give a logical answer to it.
Marriage does not magically create love or will keep someone from leaving. Divorce rates are on a staggering rise and many people have affairs. There is no difference between the day before the wedding and the day after (besides being down some money). Are there even any benefits, because you can have the exact same things without the magical "title" that's suppose to somehow validate your love for someone.
Anyone enlighten me? What is the point of marriage now a days? (the majority of people already have pre-marital sex anyways) Seems like the only answer I can think of is the title itself and the paper work to go along with it. So why are we just conforming to this mythical expectation of romance and love that we were bombarded by disney, the media ect. when we were kids?
