what does marriage mean to you? Do you need a legal binding contract to show your love to your bf/gf?

I do not know the law of the place where you wrote the question but here it has much more of a "legal binding contract" between husband and wife. We give security to each other and our future children (e.g. when it comes to heritage questions) on the legal level.
But much more important is the meaning of the marriage. We declared to each other and the people who know that we mean to stay together for our whole life. It's the ultimate promise we could give each other: We belong to each other in any situation this world might throw at us. Poverty, sickness, etc. are now borne together.0
