Marriage is stupid because marriage is not necessary for two people to live together, have children, love eachother, etc. My dad told me the only reason he and my mom got married was to make their religious parents happy, and that a common-law relationship would have suited them fine. Women no longer need a man to support them financially. Furthermore, committing yourself to one person for the rest of your life is a little drastic. Seeing as ~half of marriages end in divorce, many people agree. How many of the non-divorces are loveless and maybe rife with infidelity, staying together for the sake of the kids?
Marriage is a joke, ABC and FOX have shown us that.
I will never get married because I have no desire to commit myself to anyone (monogamy is IMO unnatural). I don't want to become some bored, old man left with only memories of my younger days to cheer me up, resigned to "anaesthetizing [myself] with sports and pornography" (thanks Bill Maher!).
I won't get married because I recognize that just because I love someone right now doesn't mean I will in 5, 10,25,50 years.
I'm not going to debate this any further, the thread is about gay marriage. I also do not have the energy to contend with an onslaught from the married people on this forum. I'm NOT saying you shouldn't get married, or that marriage should be banned. Just that I don't like the idea, and I do not have to like it.
