Ok... seriously now. What's in it for the men when it comes to marriage?
Is it because it gets us laid? If so, then why is there a stereotype out there that sex ends after marriage?
Is it because of love? of money? so that you have someone besides your mother to do your laundry? or just because it's the thing to do?
Guys - why have you gotten married, and why do you want to get married?
Girls - what do you think marriage can offer a guy that he can't get while being single?

To answer; what is the benefits of marriage? ...in a healthy marriage (imo), the benefits arn't much more, other than legal ones (which is obviously also the drawbacks). A husband and wife have more rights than roommates. For example, if your girlfriend had a life altering accident you would be denied the right to see her when the family see's her, but a husband would be given that right. I heard awhile back it also makes the cost of living cheaper (and has various other benefits like this). When your growing old with someone...you'll regret not being married and because of a lot of legal rights your otherwise not entitled too. Then of course, there's the issue of if you ever want children. This will be easier on you and your children if your married. Lastly, (though I'm not a guy), I think guys choose to get married (out of free will) because they truly love their spouse, they believe in marriage, or they want to make their SO's dreams come true (and are happy to do so. If you don't feel that way about the woman your with, you shouldn't get married.
A lot of people also go into it with the idea that it will create big changes. If your relationship is healthy and ready for marriage it shouldn't change a thing (other than what I wrote about above).5
