Can you not have a committed relationship without marriage? I get the whole exclusivity thing and I am all for that, but what really is the big deal with getting married? Other than specific legal reasons, men and women alike seem to have this unrealistic fantasy about marriage. It seems that a lot of people get married because of some social expectation and with the divorce rate being what it is, it would seem that it is not a great idea for most people.

alto of women would choose marriage over a long-term relationship because it gives them a sense of security. eg. if a man and a woman had a couple of children and the man was primary bread-winner, the woman would be potentially left with nothing should they break up. also society instills a list of priorities on us for how our lives should be run eg. should be married with a family by the times you're in your early 30's. these ideals often make people in such a way that they marry for the wrong reasons and that's why, in my opinion, divorce rates are so high.1
