Why do people get married?

I don't really see the point in it. If it's purely because you love someone you can do that without a marriage, you don't need some legal/religious contract for the girl/guy to go around saying your her property. Chances are he/she was doing that already, and vice versa with you. The benefits are nice, I agree but it just seems like a way for the Government to get involved in business that isn't theirs. They only give benefits to marriages because they want something out of it (new tax payers in the form of children) and will do everything to give you guys the stability to have children. It also doesn't make sense from a religious standpoint cause it begs the question "Do you love this person more than the deity you worship?" I'm not trying to attack marriage, and chances are if I found "The One" I would probably want to marry her. It was just a question that came into my mind since I'm pretty sure if you lived in a world without marriages, a real loving relationship could function just fine without it.

    Its a personal reference. You are right. People dont need to get married to show that they love one another. But if people want to go through a ceremony, to show their love then they will. Be it legal or religious.

  • Before there were any benefits it was just a symbolic gesture to dedicate your life to someone.

  • Think of marriage like a new video game console release. You fight through the crowds of nerdy men to get that fine, well-oiled piece of machinery. But it isn't yours until you ring it up at the register, lest some crafty bro steal that pretty new thing out from underneath you with no consequence.

  • So you don't know a thing about marriage, the government or religion. Interesting.
