Marriage to show your devotion to someone isn't necessary, nor do I care for the societal ciew of it as being just another step.
However, it's still beneficial from a legal standpoint as legislation is set up around it. So I you commit a lot of shared resources or belongings, children, etc...then it's helpful. Not required but it follows along an easier path.
But otherwise, I don't need a marriage to make any kind of message or oath.5
