In this century is it crazy to get marry? or living together is enough?

Honestly, I don't see the point in marriage, as it's limitations outweigh the benefits, from my perspective. The only legitimate reason to get married seems to be able to provide a stable environment both financially and parenting-wise in which to raise children. The only reason I would consider marrying someone, is if my partner and I both want to have kids together and are fully committed to a future with one another.
Otherwise, being in love isn't really a logical reason to get married, because I don't think that stage lasts forever -- once the love spell wears off, and two people are married, eventually they probably won't want to be with each other anymore and will start looking for someone else. That's just how it works. And marriage just makes that more difficult, as rather than just breaking up with the person, you have to go through the legal system.
If two people have fallen in love, move in together, and live compatibly for a certain amount of time, preferably over a year, and both have made plans for a future together which may or may not include kids, then I think it would make sense to get married, if the decision suits both people.
It's a big step, and I think young people these days who get married don't fully think it through beforehand, and are perhaps rushing into marriage too soon. But who am I to judge, as we all feel differently about certain things, and while I am skeptical about marriage, another person, on the other hand, might be fully confident in their beliefs which allow them to make that decision.3
