Haha no, in real life. Nobody would marry a jerk.

Not necessarily.

As a woman, if you're sharp, you usually end up marrying the "nice guy" and growing old with him, so in a way, yes: They finish last because, well, you're done looking further once you find him.

That's really scary. Why would people even want marriage?

As for the institution itself, it's a dying custom, no longer necessary in the more progressive cultures, but still required for legal and social efficacy in developing countries.

As far as a long-term commitment, you may not be at a point in your life when you're ready to get that, yet. Not everyone ever does. Some people simply weren't meant to shack up, some don't even need the intimacy.

For those who are ready and have the temperament for it, it's a great to be able to be yourself, comfortable and relaxed and stable with someone who deeply cares for you, for whom you possess altruistic tendre.

EDIT: Despite popular myth, women tend to be happier and healthier if they remain single, and men tend to be happier and healthier if married.

When women say they aren't interested in nice guys, what they really mean is that they aren't interested in boring guys.

Being nice *and* interesting is a powerful combination.

Because then they're able to cheat? I can't agree with marriage, that's a fucked up invention of the church. What bonds people ain't a piece of paper or a paedophile wearing a black dress no.

Incidentally, I happen to be agnostic, so I agree with you on several levels. I got married at the city courthouse, just me and my husband, no big wedding, nobody else other than the lady who read our vows to us and a court-appointed witness.

I didn't get married until I was 35, and at that point I was very comfortable with who I was, in my own skin, happy to go on as a spinster. Then I met my husband (there was no romantic epiphany; no realignment of the planets nor any heady passion, but that's another long story). So I didn't see it coming per se.

I suppose I could have said no to his marriage proposal, but then all the familial, social and legal issues come into play. I'm not a fan of hassle, and upon assessing pro's and con's, I made my decision, and I am mostly happy for it, especially now that I have a daughter.

As a woman, would I have been healthier and happier as a single person? Maybe, maybe not.

Here's some stuff about men and marriage:
