I'm not talking about love, I'm talking about marriage. We all seemed pressured to get married when couples love each other just as much as they did before they got married. So why get married?
From my personal experience , love can't defined by anything, so marriage seems like it was invented by the insecure people for the insecure . A ring symbolized that person is married, whenever someone takes it off, it's considered "disrespectful".
We have people today who would die for their boyfriend /girlfriend at the drop of a hat if it means to protect them, So, why do we need to get married?

For me, not really...
1) Marriage is a spiritual "thing" where you sign a paper of promises about that love and commitment to that specific church/god. I'm an atheist, so I won't make such promises, unless in the future my girlfriend wants it really bad, but she and her family will know with all the letters that I don't believe in such thing and to me that's just a favor to her family.
2) All the goods registered with your name and his/her name will have both names on the paper after marriage. Every thing you fought for in your entire life will be given to another person. I don't agree with that, just because that brings a lot of problems into a couple and I know a lot of people that were screwed because of that. If there other person wants money, Ask and I'll give, but if she wants an apartment, that apartment will have the name of the one who spend money of it. Lets say it costs 500'000 € (I live in Europe) and the guy pays 350'000€ and the girl pays 150'000 €. On the record, 70% of that apartment is owned buy the guy and 30% by the girl. If something hapens in the future, that can't be motive to an argument, since on my eyes, that's far to do.
So, marriage for me, will only make sense if there is love with out money involved. (I thing there is a contract to sign to make that happen - I won't marry if she doesn't want that contract, and I don't care who has more money, she can have billions on her possession, that's her money not mine.)
3) Marriage is considered a "must do" in society, yes. I disagree with that entirely, since a man and a woman can love each other to death without signing a paper.1
