Is every unmarried couple 'commitmentless'?

I've been in a legal defacto relationship for 11 years now, we've always been monogamous and loyal to each other. We are each others next of kin and legal executors, we own a house together, and have two children. We've been engaged for 9 years but haven't got married because its not an expense I can justify when we're living pay check to pay check. Today I was informed that a friends sisters relationship is more committed, and loving than ours because she's married her online boyfriend of 6 weeks. I don't know why but this just rubbed me the wrong way.

$100 is a lot of money in my world. Possibly hers, too. That's a bill payment.

Put a dollar a week away and save for it. In 2 years you can be married.

You dont have to have a full ceremony do you? Can you do something just you and your man with nothing extra?

How much does a marriage license cost these days?

Yes I do think unmarried couples are lacking the bigger commitment.
