How is marriage a necessity? If it is, there are a lot of spinsters in deep trouble.

I think compulsive is spelled this way! Two people can live together there whole life and never get married. Being married means you are united as one and should be special to you and your spouse.

Compulsory is a word. Plus, I believe they're is spelled this way. The English language is so silly, with so many of its words sounding the same.

Marriage is not compulsory, its voluntary...... giving yourself to someone with your full consent and agree to be with him/her for the rest of your life. Its not a responsibility nor obligation. Its a decision........because you love that person, because you are happy with him/her, because you feel secured when you are with him/her, because you want to have a family with him/her. What's important is you follow your heart because getting married is not that easy,you will encounter problems, and its not a 1 day decision-its a lifetime commitment........... yeah, Marriage is not only a piece of paper, for me its not that important.......what's matters most is that the relationship........your relationship with your partner.

Good question!A question asked by a meditative, brave and open minded guy! It is estimable for you to ask this question, as there is few people dare doubt if it is right when everyone seems to consider it's kinda normal. i think it depends. some of us are suitable to get married, they may feel stable, happy and comfortable to be a family member. some of us are not. they prefer living alone.

I'm not much for the idea of marriage for myself (though I'm all for marriage EQUALITY), but there are definitely legal benefits to being married. Very few places still practice common law marriages, so people have to legally marry to have the necessary rights and privileges.

Living together is bodily love. For mental love marriage is necessary.
