Tradition. It's possible to get married without any religion involvement.

Well, that means there isn’t a point in marrying
Even without religious stuff involved people still might like the commitment that it represents.

Interesting.

Surely marriage should mean more than just a union.... there must be a blessing in it

It comes from religion, so it must have a purpose to serve as a blessing.

marriage didn't come from religion, unless you're suggesting that only certain marriages were real. while in many cultures they never had marriages

As a married atheist, i'd say tradition and it's a sign of legal commitment that you're something for life.

there's certainly legally security in some senses, and you can feel like it's more long term.

When you're not religious this is just hogwash.

Something that is supposed to be a long term relationship and the most stable way to raise children. (Unless you married an abusive person I guess)
