I have never understood why couples who have been together for say 5 plus years, who live together, who maybe have children, don't get married especially if neither have had any previous divorce. I would consider that to be, as they say, "playing house." If you are committed to a person, you live with them, you have kids with them, it seems to me the next logical step would be marriage. One does not need a giant wedding to get married, you can go to the courthouse, so the excuse of, but a wedding is expensive in my eyes, really isn't an obstacle as some people put forth as reasoning. I think after five years with someone, if you are still "confused" or "unsure" then you really just shouldn't be together. Thoughts?
Guys, why do you date a woman for a long time, but never propose?

There are many reasons that can be the case. My parents weren't married legally although they even wore bands because they both had businesses that would have made taxes etc a nightmare. Just because two aren't married doesn't mean they are confused or unsure.0
Because marriage is a waste of time and embarrassing.0
... I'm probably too young to understand marriage, but love isn't a piece of paper0
Marriage doesn't equal commitment.
Staying together equals commitment. A marriage license is just a piece of paper stating that the poorer of the two partners gets to take the richer one's assets if they breakup. There really isn't a reason to marry for such a retarded reason.0
