I have pretty crappy finances and some weird medical concerns that I do have to deal with for the foreseeable future. Marriage, for me, is not beneficial as a legally binding arrangement. While I would like my spouse to have some of the benefits that come with marriage (like rights to my SSDI stuff and hospital visitation privileges), I don't like the idea of my loved ones being stuck with all of my shitty bills in the event that I die.
I'm not 100% sure if your spouse is stuck with your debts after you die, but I don't want to risk it.
Would this stop me from performing some kind of marriage-like ceremony for the social benefits? Of course not. I'd gladly jump the broom or get hand fasted or any number of marriage-type ceremonies.
Unpopular opinion alert: I think that marriage and civil unions should be different things (marriage having a religious/social context whereas a civil union being a legal binding between two parties that bestows what we think of as "legal marriage benefits"). So, I wouldn't get civilly unionized because of legality, but I would marry the shit outta some people.
Anyway, weird musings aside: if other people wanna get hitched/tie the knot/whatever, let 'em have it!0

Marriage gets a bad rap because too many people rush into marriages without making sure that they have found the right person, and too many marriages end because people want to simply give up instead of working to make a bad marriage better. If you find the right person with the right attitude, marriage can be wonderful.2
