For some people it's a commitment that allows them to trust their partner more as they've both at least claimed that they will stand by each other through thick and thin. For others I know they think it's outdated and obsolete and a horrible institution and IMO, most of those folks can trace back to a negative event or person that caused them to hold their current view.


In the USA, I will say the one and only one is the tax rate.

You're better off as Head of Household if you've got qualifying dependents.


Societal pressure if you have kids. Not an issue in some areas.


Nah........can't think of any 😕


In many countries, it's required of older folks to obtain legal residency. Besides that, pointless unless your religion proscribes.


Helps keep the priests in business


It shuts up most parents.
Helps protect legal rights of parents in case of children.
Tells your friends/ family to stop hitting on your significant other...

That's all I got. Marriage is a bad idea. Horrible, just horrible.


Devoting your life to one person rather than remaining like a 'child' who never grows

There are enormous legal and tax benefits to be gained from marriage, but for the relationship side I don't think it is needed--a loving and caring partnership comes from something deeper than a marriage certificate.


In reading these comments, I think it would have been interesting to have also asked people to tell their status: never married, married, widowed, divorced (and was the divorce amicable). I can almost tell from the answers of some.

I am a Widower,lost wife of 27 years to lung cancer in Sept.2017, didn't marry until 43,so no kids. Why so late? 8 years in the Air Force,moving about every 6 months to a years time made it impossible to put down roots and raise a family with a Woman,seems I'd try to get a romance going and then new orders to move again,leaving a trail of broken hearts behind and bruising mine.

And then after separation,low paying jobs that kept me fed and housed but no extra to date with.Only when I got a better paying job was I able to do a wife hunt,so I ran an ad in a singles paper,my wife to be read it,called me up,we met,dated and married 6 months later.


No crabs anymore!

You're wildly optimistic!


Can't think of a single one.


they don't always fail or you might end up not loathing each other or why not gotta future proof the divorce industry

Do arguments need to be made for it?

@Belrieve Disagree.

@Belrieve What I'm saying is I disagree with you.
