Do you think that marriage is really necessary?


My parents got married because "it was the right thing to do" not because they were in love with each other. Now after a nasty deparation and 27 agonizing years, they are finally happy.

    Just because you don't believe in religion does not make it a joke. Religion helps millions of people get through the day, helps people find purpose in life, and gives many believers their first taste of a true family.

    old albion, your statement: "marriage is best for (financial settlement) should things fall apart." Is absolutely correct! With a divorce rate that is over 50% one can hardly say marriage guarantees "commitment" or "love". It's really about security.

    Basically you're saying the primary reason for marriage is (not love) but rather (financial security) and raising a family. Suppose one has no desire to have children or a woman has a high powered career? Is marriage necessary? or is it optional?
