As of right now I am very content on not getting married. Being married gives me the feeling of being trapped and in debt and rather not feel that way at all!

My girlfriend and I have been together several years, and still can't figure out any reason why we'd want to get married. It seems to us as though nothing would change, with the exception of having to waste an assload of money on a day where we get both of our families together--neither of which seem particularly entertaining.

When I graduate from college, move out, and have a stable job, I may get married. I don't want to rush.

I do not plan on getting married but anything can happen. but like a few have said what is a peice of paper saying you are married have any meaning. I understand the whole process and everything behind it but I do no like being binded down by a stupid peice of paper. I have seen many people deal with marriage because they did not want to divorce and lose everything to the other spouse. It just does not seem like something I can see myself doing. If I ever fall so in love to change those values then it happens, but I highly doubt that.

They believe in the classic and narrow minded way of love. You love someone qiote much or much -> must get married -> get married.

Easy to not believe in marriages.
Easy to get married but hard or pretty much impossible to be really sure your partner isnt cheating on you in one or another way.

Also, a marriage these days doesnt last long, generally a few years then the partner brake up the so called holy vow you may have made in the church.
Afterwards, it is time to get another partner, usually for a change in bed and looks.


I have no plans on getting married.

We are a polygamous species by nature and there is plenty of evidence that men have less to lose than women by having extramarital sex, so it's easier for them to cheat. A really monogamous animal is a goose, which never mates again even if its mate is killed.

^ this. People who get engaged in high school or something... I don't really understand it. Unless both people in the relationship are so worried someone else better might come along for their significant other that they want to go ahead and set 'mental' chains to prevent escape. Seriously, that's the only reason i can come up with. I'll never understand the 'engaged to be engaged' scenario going on.

Kinda depressing though that a lot of marriages in present day tend to fail. It almost makes me afraid of marriage. it really is a big commitment and not just 'playing house' everyday.

LOL! That's a tad scary and a bit obsessive

"Marriage" is just paperwork and legalities... Right now, I'm not interested in such a thing. There's still a lot of things I wish to accomplish for myself. Maybe one day when I've chased down my dreams and start living comfortably, I might think of having a family with a certain someone. For now though, I'm all for me.

I have no plans, and would say I am more so against marriage as its, like most say, just paper. But side note, take Pennsylvania for example, if you and your significant other live at the same address together for 10 years(I think that's the right amount) you are legally considered married without any paperwork and etc.

Could happen, and I wouldn't sweep it right out the door.

Emo answer, but with the sheer volume of divorces I don't really see a point in making vows. Monogamous relationship is good enough to me.

Marriage, to me, is just a big announcement of "we are together" and nothing more. So, what is the purpose of it, if you are already together? It makes no sense to me in the slightest
