Is marriage really that important?
If you was quite back in time, only seeing it as a trend or for the rich people.

(if someone could find any better please post it has it shows the trend etc)

So why should we feel it is so important as life it self, where life should be more important then marriage.
(quite few takes too highly, and sometimes gets married too much and has it with no value at all so what was the point?)
Should people be more careful with it?
also not use it as a most have but more delicate choice?
(as if something bad happeneds afterwards it could have harder impact?)

Marriage is at the bottom of the list of things to do in my life, so not very important.

I believe it is a result of our societies pushing population growth, in an attempt to boost its usually faulty societal models mainly consumerism which needs population growth to function. In the end I do not believe in marriage at all, and we should not extend social and societal privileges to people who marry, though for the most part I consider this course of action to diminish the number of people who die in their homes. Yet even considering that, I find it inappropriate that it is pushed to the extent that it is.

People like making their relationships feel more official. Plus, the financial benefits are hard to pass up, especially if you plan on having kids.

to me personally it is extremely important for many reasons...

i hate that it is now a political thing. really diminishes its importance, especially with the high divorce rate. it should have stayed a religious practice imo. as it is now it is all about benefits. had there never been federal/state/etc benefits attached to marriage i think it wouldn't have become such a huge deal.

I would just marry for the benefits. Other than that, not really important.

Ring pop engagement ring and then a $5 silver band from Walmart would pretty much do the cut. Hopefully my future fiancée would agree with my philosophy.

Marriage is only second to my writing ambitions in life right now, but love can strike like a cobra, so who knows? After I fall in love, my priorities might change and I might have to think about my family more, but right now, I'm doing everything in my power to become a better writer.

Marriage is actually a profound ceremony joining two souls together as one. I consider it rather beautiful, although the level of beauty varies proportionally to the extent that the couple's heart is into it. Too many weddings are extravagant, showy... like they exist solely for the sake of vanity. As your video reference seems specific to engagement rings, I will leave with this. https://youtu.be/N5kWu1ifBGU

Unless your situation is so desperate that your day job and responsibilities completely tie you down there's no reason you can't write and love at the same time. I have a full-time job and a longtime girlfriend, and still find time to write. It's all about staying motivated and managing your time. The hardest thing about writing is actually sitting down and doing it.

To me...not as important as people make it out to be. All I see it as is a front. If I want to make it official then...the next big thing is a kid...right? I like kids, but not marriage.

I probably will manage both at some point. Just because it's second to writing doesn't mean it isn't important: writing is the most important aspect of my life, so love and marriage is pretty up there When the time comes to settle down and raise a family, however, since my wife and I will be responsible for raising kids and keeping the family together, both financially and in morale, I will have to see that as slightly more important, although my success in the workplace is correlated to that anyways.

I would love nothing more than to have someone to share the rest of my life with. But currently, for me, marriage is a dream, and nothing more.

;_; I mean I'm young right now. Marriage has to be at the bottom of my To-do list at this age. Marriage is long termed, but it doesn't necessarily mean it's important. Seeing as how it is Marriage will be a dream for now, it's really up to you to make it a reality.

But to answer the question in a serious manner, I don't believe Marriage is important up until a certain age. I say this because most people don't want to die alone nor do they like the idea of being lonely. I'll say that it's important to an extent. Although not needed it's still wanted.
