      I'd say it's totally depends on the type of society you live in. I'm from the UK and like many couples, we live together, but have no immediate (or even future) plans for marraige.

      That's not to say I'm against marriage at all. I just don't feel it pays any real significance. I love my girlfriend and I don't feel the need to have a piece of paper to prove it.

      I myself personally don't see it as being important at all nowadays or atleast especially not in this day and age.

      I personally wouldn't rush to get married just so I had a piece of paper to prove that I was with this person. I understand that many do want to get married because they truly do love each other but I think nowadays people do it just to make them centre of attention which never works out in the long run and you only end up with a mess at the end with divorces and such.

      I didn't mention it in my first post, but I also believe religion comes in to it a lot. Some people feel pressured to get married to show their communion in the eyes of god. I'm not a religious person, so that's no doubt another reason why it's not so important to me.

      I agree, I personally think the more someone believes in say God or has been brought up as a Christian then they are pushed more to get married than others would be whom do not believe or are not Christian.

      Even though I have been married for donkeys years I don't think it is important for people to marry.
      So long as they are both happy with the situation then it's fine.
