I kinda think it's not needed.
Like it doesn't guarantee the person will be faithful or loyal or stay in love with you or what is said in the vows.
People constantly divorce, leading to extra pain and cost in the end to both or one of the partners.
Like what is the purpose of marrying someone ?
I can get it you wanna show the world that you are taken "forever" or just taken or you wanna mark the special day or whatever.
Point is why marry when nothing is guaranteed?
why marry? Cause I rather not be married and be with someone that is right for me than be married to a man that into the 4th or 10th year we divorce and go into a battle?
I do like the part with the ring though :$

The only purpose of marriage is to please God and have children.
Sounds like you come from a school of thought were marriage is normally between a man and a woman and for most people this would be true.
Marriage was designed by our creator to be between man and God and woman and God with all promises made to God and a 3 party agreement. There was once a requirement where the marriage vows had to be specific and contain the exact language, now it has watered down to people placing their own conditions and excluding God from the marriage. What you see and are describing are Godless marriages.
Death is guaranteed and covered in a God fearing marriage.0
