Why do we or people get married?

I believe in my own heart of hearts that it is social ideology...

But, on a personal note it is an un-equivocable statement of love and commitment and the people whom are making that statement are'nt only doing for themselves, they are saying it to the world, proudly, lovinly and defiantly...

Like the man on the Piazza...

Who kneels in the middle of the Piazza in the middle of a thousand people and says to the woman he loves... My love in front of god and all these people...

Will you marry me?

Why does he want to marry her? Why would he want to ask in public and face terrible humiliation if she says no...

I think he wants to tell the world! :cool:

yes, to announce our love for each other from the mountaintops! To express our undying love for one another.

Or to get benefits, and pay hommage to the days when marriage made the woman your property and made it illegal for other men to sleep with her, I don't know.

I'm of two minds. After two failed marriages, I'm pretty sure I don't want to tr third time. On the other hand, one never knows. With my current lady, the words "and foresaking all others" keeps running through my mind.

Yeah, the ex is out of town and I'm at her place watching the kids. No internet, so I'm hijacking a wireless signal. Have trouble holding it. Besides just the usual kids watching.

I think we marry for love mostly and a little bit for the knowledge that someone will be there for you when you are at your worst.

For example, some days i don't wake up with minty fresh breath but my husband will kiss me whether it does or not. ;)

There are many reasons we marry...
genuine caring, financial security, physical security, religious ideology, cultural pressure, social acceptaince, eager youth, eager any-age, devotion, happiness, citizenship, compainionship, love...oh so many reasons.
I cannot in good concience say that any one reason is better than another or that one reason is right and anothe ris wrong.

But i can say this: when the time is right for me, I don't need to hear you shout it from the mountaintops...I just need to see it in your eyes.

More exactly, "married" in the eyes of society.
