So I got married when I was 19 because I'm a retard and all my other 19 year old friends that kept getting married (military has a super high rate of teenage marriage) convinced me and my wife it was a good idea well long story short she cheated on me and now I'm 20 going through a divorce and it really makes me not want to be married again. I no longer see the point of it when you can be in a happy relationship why do you need a piece of paper telling you that you're in love when you can just be in love. He's probably thinking along the same lines.

Exactly what he says... that he doesn't want to marry as he doesn't believe in doing that for society, but he's open to live in relationship forever. A lot of people, myself included, carry this stance. Why do we need a certificate and ceremony to prove our love? I'm content knowing that a man CHOOSES to commit to me, without feeling pressured by society and tradition. In the US, I believe after 7 years together its considered common law marriage, so you could still reap the same benefits as a married couple.
