Necessary? No. Marriage is a life-style choice.
The only things we "need" are (air, water, food, shelter, and clothing). Ironically all of the preceeding can be had in any county jail.
Life however is not just about getting the things that are "necessary". It's about having goals, dreams, and desires. If someone has no desire to be married, have children, or even date then they shouldn't. Life is a personal journey. In a free society you get to (choose) how (you) want to live.
I don't think marriage is NECESSARY in life, I believe relationships are all about companionship. Once that's established, nothing else matters. Marriage doesn't have to mean commitment. The two can achieve that on their own.

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.
