I think in this case, there would be fewer marriages. So, your point still stands... albeit, the premise seems askew.

She knows I don't like my last name, so why give it to her.

I am currently in a 7.5 year relationship with someone who doesn't believe in marriage. How convenient for him. I can tell you this, it is starting to grind on me slightly. It might seem like the most trivial thing because "it's just a piece of paper". Honestly I'm starting to question other things, including do I want to be with someone for the rest of my life who just wants me to be his girlfriend. Can you imagine me being 85 and introducing my "boyfriend" to my acquaintances!?!?!

Why? Is your relationship so pathetic that you need to prove your love to each other with an expensive ass wedding and a long heartfelt letter? Girlfriend and boyfriend, wife and husband. It's the same thing, only difference is one costs more than the other. This may seem harsh, but if you think the minor social awkwardness of saying ‘boyfriend' over ‘husband' is worth thinking everything over, then you need to get your priorities straight.

Narrow sighted. Marriage isn't only about an expensive wedding... it's a commitment between two people, intended to be unbreakable (or extremely inconvenient to break). If you're just BF/GF or any combination of that... you can part ways at any time.

My wife and I have been together for 16 years, through good and bad... and our "expensive ass wedding" cost 45 dollars at the justice of the peace (paperwork isn't free).

Thank you. My point exactly. There is something beautiful about the committment. The promise to be together until the very end. Some people don't need a stupid ass wedding to prove their love. It's the 16 god damn years of the good and the bad that matter.

Actually I dont want a wedding. I can't stand weddings, I feel sorry for women who think that big ass expense validates thier social status. See I too think they are useless. Better to use that money for a down payment on a house. I would prefer to go to the JP and have an intimate group of loved ones come to witness. Secondly, wooooooweeeeee you need to check yourself. You made massive assumptions based off me saying after 7.5 years my BF doesnt want to get married. I have my priorities straight.

if people stopped being selfish. and stopped marrying based on lust instead of love divorse rates would drop
