I'm not judging, I swear...I have my own set of beliefs I adhere to that really can't be defined by any one religion, but this isn't about me..I've always see marriage as something you do as a way for god to bless your marriage..so I'm just curious as to why an athiest would marry, with exception to the legal bonuses...are are there any other reasons?

Easy answer: YOU view marriage as way for God to bless your relationship; atheists do not. Your view isn't the only view.
To me this is like asking "why do atheists have children? children are gifts from God, why would an atheist want a gift from God?" The entire premise is coming from a POV that atheists don't share. Just think of all the many reasons why people who believe in God do ANYTHING, then think of all the many reasons atheists do ANYTHING, now cross GOD off of the atheist's list & there you have it.

I'm married because I'm in love. Do I need any other reasons?
