If you are living together and not married, you are taxed less, and if you break up you may still have to get a lawyer to fight over who owns what, and if there are kids involved you still have to fight over custody. So it is just like going through a divorce anyway.
I don't see any advantage to marriage unless you want to let someone into the country. I think marriage should be a legal contract that carries penalties if you break that contract, but that is not the case. If it is not a legal contract, then there should be no laws to do with marriage. What are your thoughts on the meaning of marriage today? What kind of penalties should be given if someone breaks certain vows of marriage? What should the vows of marriage even be?

I think that most people get married for the traditional reasons, and get handed a legal contract that no sane person would sign (if they are the higher income one).1
