I mostly agree that marriage is a pretty lame practice, yet I'm about to do it anyway. If anything were to happen to one of us, the other may not even be able to get into the hospital to see them because we are not technically related. Plus we would have no say in burial, or removal of a feeding tube or what not... I guess it sounds morbid, but that is the main reason we are getting legally married (Of course we are very much in love and have been living together for years and are basically married anyway, so might as well go ahead and put it on paper).

Nope, I also share that belief. In the end it comes to whether you believe in marriage or not.

Good deal of marriages fail because people mistake passion for love and rush into marriage... only to find out they don't know anything about their partner and are unwilling to learn. So yeah, you don't rush into marriage.

How many of the teenagers here have divorced parents that influence their decisions?
Hmm.. My parents got married when I was around 7.. And my mum was around 50.. So yeah, both my parents had previous spouses but still, they seem happy enough.
As does my married sister and her husband..

Oh my god this thread is so ridiculously stupid. Or should I say the original poster is. He doesn't seem to know that the purpose of marriage was, and the 'statistics' he uses he seems to pull out of his arse.

Its unfortunate that some one so young (16) has had such a negative impressions and experience with it. You experience is not the same as everyone else's.

Overall I agree with you premise, but your argument was so ridicules, weak and badly written, I want to disagree with you just for the sake of it.

people who thinks marriage are futile are probably just afraid to make commitments... or driven out by uncertainties or experiences and i don't blame them... i believe in marriage though...

personally, I think marriage isn't pointless... it is only pointless to those people who thinks that marriage is all about commitment and burden. To some, marriage is important to settle their lives and to express to the one they love that what they feel for that someone is for eternity, though a lot would really say that "love till' eternity" is impossible. That's why, the couple must first get to know each other well to have a smooth sailing marriage life. Coz' if not, be ready to face consequences, like divorce or lifetime endurement of pain...

Marriage is a symbolic vow between 2 persons, it's sacred (at least me me xD). But nowadays, it has become something so common, people can get married so easily and then divorced so easily, that's kind of depressing lol...I think, unless you're sure to dedicate your whole life to your partner, to love and be loved by only him/her, you shouldn't get married, just date!!! ^__^ But then, if you only date, it lacks something to your couple life, don't you think? Lool it's just my opinion, so don't mind me because I have never dated or got married (luckily! I do cherish my precious freedom! Lol)

LOL.... its a Joke I took from a Priest(is it lame?). Anyway I dont see mArriage as pointless. But in some points I agree with the TS. I want to stay single and be free. If u get married, you are no longer free. And I want to be free. I think the TS is facing some independence and family Problems, thats shy he posted this thread...

I have to agree with one of the previous posters who asked how many teenagers who were talking about the pointlessness of marriage were influenced by divorces in their family. Never judge an institution by it's abuses, marriage itself isn't a bad thing, in fact, it can be a very wonderful thing when done properly. But the West seems to have really fucked up the entire idea, we're so brazen and careless about who we marry that it's gotten to the point where there are more people living together then there are people married.
I think marriage, a permanent commitment, is really good if you want to have children. It gives the kids a sense of stability and security that you wouldn't necessarily have with a couple just living together.
