Serious question, just wondering what you ladies think about it. I'm not saying that it doesn't work for some (or even a lot of) people, but I was just wondering why so many people seem to think that marriage is the only way to express how much they love someone or that they are really committed to the person they love. Personally, I doubt I'll get married again. I just don't feel that it's very important and it doesn't seem to mean much at all to a lot of people. Marriage doesn't keep people faithful or in love or anything else, it's just a legal binding to someone. What's really important, IMO, is the relationship you have with someone you love, how much you love them, sharing similar life goals and values, etc.
Anyway, what are your reasons for marriage? Why do/did you think it's so important? And anything else you'd like to add about it.

I don't think marriage is the only way to prove how much you love a person, I think it's more about the quality of the relationship. However I was married and at the time I thought it meant something more between me and my husband; though our marriage deteriorated quickly after our first child was born and yet I know people who have been together for years and have kids and still love each other so I know firsthand that being married doesn't mean that a couple has a better or relationship nor do they love each other more than an unmarried couple but I enjoy being married. I miss having someone to call my husband and I miss being a wife.
