Does it have to be like that?....or should that be up to the individual's choice?

Marriage is part of human cycle and human life does not complete a full cycle till marriage is happened. However, it should be left to the individual as it is a matter of like & dislike.

I think a couple should pretend they are bound officially, both should sign a home written agreement, declaring their unofficial binding, and if they can live together happily like this for 2 - 5 years then sure, go ahead and marry...if you are still both willing...

No body forces you to marry. It is upto the individual's choice whether to marry or not. In my opinion marriage is very essential. If one is married, one can feel that there is someone with whom one can share the throughts, feelings, one can have procreation, enjoy the life of family with wife and children.

I personally don't believe that marriage is madatory. Now my opionion might change if people looked at marriage as a sacred vow like it should be. But in todays world alot of people seem to think o.k. if this don't work out I can always just get divorced.

It should definately be an individual choice. If a person doesn't want to get married then they shouldn't.

I think marriage is up to the person. I dont think marriage is a mandatory to people. If you dont want to get married, that fine, if you do want to get married, that fine too. It your life so I think you can do what you choose to do.

Marriage is an individual's choice, some people will marry while others will never marry. Some people long for a martial partner while others see more benefits in being single.
