Kind of what it says. I know in the past few years (actually, months) my views have changed. I don't believe in marriage anymore, and I don't think I will until anyone can marry who they want to without discrimination. Before that, I always thought of marriage as an agreement, more than an actual act of commitment. To me, true commitment would be staying with a boyfriend/girlfriend even if it would be so easy to just, well, leave.
Just wondering about your thoughts, what they used to be, what they are now, etc.

It's neither. Marriage as we know it is a legal contract with economic advantages. That's basically it. People delude themselves that when they get married by the violence of the state, it means something to agree to it, and that to disagree to it means lack of love or commitment. The state encourages marriage for socioeconomic reasons, but it obviously can't enforce commitment or love so, thinking of it logically makes it a useless gesture beyond economic benefits. When I get married it won't be by the state.0
