What Girls Said 1

  • I think it simply has less limitations than marriage, especially when it comes to financial stuff.
    Anyway, emotionally-wise I don't consider the marriage "bond" to be deeper or anything like that.


What Guys Said 1

  • Well dating is like marriage just without the tax write-offs and the other person being legally entitled to half your shit. Personally, I believe that being married doesn't make your relationship stronger or your love deeper. Marriage is just a social norm which was created by religion and is subsidized by the government through tax benefits. That being said I still want to marry my girlfriend someday.
