OMG are you sure you're not related to my S/O lol. I've been with him for eight years too and we have three beautiful children but aren't married either. We have the same take on this as you do and it's funny because not too long ago, a female co-worker of his said the same thing to him and he responded the same way you just did!!!! KUDOS TO US lol

Because being married legally you as the wife have LEGAL rights that you DONT have as a SO. If your SO dies, his family members, meaning brothers sisters parents GET his estate, NOT you. Also you get to be on your hubby's medical insurance and as a SO only his child does. There are MANY more financial advantages to having a hubby than just a SO.
