Non religious people, why do you get married?Watch this thread
When I religious, I wanted to get married because I felt that at the ceremony, god blessed our marriage and that after it, I was then free to consummate it.
But I don't really see the appeal of it after becoming atheist.
Get to fart on her
Can walk around the house in her heels and dress and pretend to be a lady
That's it really
Can teach the kids to call her witch lady
Can make sexual innuendo in front of the kids to **** her off
Can make her breakfast in bed when she's ill
Can poke her butt with my **** while spooning
Can tell her she looks hot when she actually looks fat
Can flirt with her sister
Can bang the secretary
Can get caught cheating and have her cut my clothes with a knife
Can have a messy divorce where I call her at three in the morning telling her I love her
Can get over her after two years of depression, having lots of meaningless sex and getting fat
Can meet up five years later talking about how happy we both are, but secretly we just wanna bang, we bang
I'd be a great husband
As for men well in todays 'equal' society one must do whatever pleases the women.
Marriage is also, basically, betting half your stuff that you'll love someone forever. I don't like those odds.
in answer to OP, they have no reason, they are just sticking to society's norms.
even more pertinently, why the hell would gays want to get married? just because the fact they cant implies their relationships are inferior, only reason (which of course they are)
I want to get married to show my intended life-long commitment to my partner. Plus a honeymoon.
