i still believe that marriage is still one of the most important thing in our life, it gives better bonding and the security of having a better hold on your relationship. out of anything your child/children will benefit the most on it. we might be living in a liberated and broadminded community and this thing has made live-in relationship acceptable but i still have stronger belief in the sanctity of marriage.

Some of us will always believe in marriage and if it works for them, then it's right for them. As this point in my life, getting married seems to be an expensive way to declare love for one another. Living together may seem morally wrong to some, but it makes sense to me.

I believe in marriage. Being married gives one the sense of commitment that relationships out of marriage most often lack. Married couples tend to exert more effort in making things work. Just as it also makes people think, not just once or twice, if they are prepared to take a step further into their relationship. Also, having God's blessing gives that feeling of security which would last as long as you believe that God will see you through the odds and ends of your relationship.

yes i think marriage is still necessary as it gives stability and more sense of attachment to a relationship and makes the couple more responsive to ones needs and requirements thus forging a better relationship. I think that people who shy away from marriage consider themselves immature or unwilling to be accountable or be responsive to one's partners needs.If one truly loves somebody then what difference does it make to him to be in a live-in relationship or a married life??
