I see posts here talking about when to get married, the time line. Marriage problems etc. I have been with the same woman for 20 years, we are best friends. 50/50 partners in everything and getting married is the furthest thing from both of our minds. Besides if there was any issues its easier to walk away then have to go through the divorce BS and hand money to a lawyer.
So what is everyone's Infatuation with Marriage?

I think you are very focused on the negative aspect of it. Yes it is easier to pack your thing and go but did you know after 7 years of living in the same house it is considered common law marriage and if you do split she can still take you to court for half if not more and spouse support because you do not have a marriage decree with an amendment saying who gets what in the event of a split... mmhhhhmm ain't that some shit.
I could tell you right now if you bought her a ring and got on one knee she would be over the moon with excitement. We are women and that's just how we are made.
Now to your point yes it is a piece of paper with tax benefits plus it secures many things like the ability to qualify for a home and what not. Of course not every couple needs that so its does make sense to just not get married... and if you have no kids then really again your point is valid.
So now lets get to the joyous part of such a union... Relationships are hard damn work and women tend to put up with quit a bit so at the end of it all, a man saying he wants to spend forever with you and proving as such with such a serious commitment like marriage its like getting a damn grammy. You have won the ultimate prize. So for many, someone willing to commit to them on such a level is truly enlightening.1
