i don't really understand the point of it. I get spending the rest of your life with your significant other but why marriage? I love my girlfriend and want to spend the rest of my life with her but I don't want to get married now and anytime down the road. so to the people who are married can you tell me what's up? to the people whom aren't can you shed some light on this subject? oh. does anybody agree with me?

It depends on how you look at it. If you look at it from a financial perspective then marriage makes a lot of sense because of taxes, income, children and dependents, mortgage, car payments, other things like that. You get benefits for being married. There are a lot of other reasons why couples get married too. If you're looking at it from a romantic perspective then I agree with you. Romantic marriage today has no point. it makes no sense. It used to be that marriage was taken seriously and was respected. People would respect each other in their marriage and stay loyal, have kids, you know. Marriage was permanence. Today it seems like people take marriage much less seriously, I think people see marriage today more as a temporary idea. Not all people of course but I think its shifted to the majority. I don't know I'm old fashioned though. I get it from my grandfather who has never cheated on my grandmother even after she had a three year affair with her boss.1
