(save some of the legal aspects that apply mainly in case of separation or specific circumstances...but a non married couple can still have a fair custom contract that fits their needs and situation...). Save for the two exceptions mentioned above (religion and culture) I cannot think of any reason why it cannot be the same.

As for me marriage wouldn't add or change anything to the relationship and wouldn't make me love more or less so I consider it pointless from a personal perspective...but then, it seems that I come from a place (Quebec) where we have one the highest proportion of "common-law" couples (cultural influence I suppose ). This table also shows that while the number of marriages has decreased by more than 50% in +- 20yrs (where I live), the number of divorces is about the same...

I would say that the lack of an easy out is one. And the legal responsibilities would be the other. But, if you're going to take all the significance out of marriage and just address is as a legal contract, then I would say the binding legal requirements of said contract.

pointless.

Welcome to the forums , please don't perform 'thread necromancy' unless you have something substantial to say about a thread. One word answers tend to be considered spam, so please don't do that. Again welcome to the forums!

These sort of posts are rather unwelcome here.

I see you are new; welcome to the forums

This is the serious discussion forum, though, so one word posts are considered spam. Could you please elaborate on your opinion?

It makes it hard to have a discussion if the other person only says one word
