my cousin who's gonna be 30 proposed to his girlfriend because he "is getting too old to not be married anymore". yet they've been going out for 5 years. do they really need to make it official in a marriage or do you think its just a piece of paper.
many people would say marriages happen because its a good financial move. others say marriages shouldn't happen because of the money, it should be because of love. while I think he loves her, I don't think he's doing it for the right reason

No weddings are not really just a piece of paper and a glorified event. What wedding is really depends on how the person value wedding itself. It can be any of those that you've mentioned, it can be a symbolism of a milestone in their relationship etc.. This may surprise you, but many girls in America really fancy getting married, and thus rushed into it. All too quick too soon, things just don't work out. Sometimes it's not so much about the marriage concept being unsuccessful or useless but people not willing to give it a good go or for some other reasons. So to relate to your concerns, what matters most is whether he is really ready to be married, so is the girl. Good luck to him.0
