    I note the underlying assumption that married = committed relationship. And unmarried = not-committed (and single). Which for me is the underlying false assumption.

    Personally I would stay away from this one, because marriage has a complex and varied history in society. Largely to do with being a property contract. It is not as it is today (in the western world!).

    They all said "Hallo," and felt awkward and unhappy suddenly, because it was a sort of good-bye they were saying, and they didn't want to think about it.

    I would stay away from that one because it's a totally fallacious argument.

    Traditionally, marriage (at least as per orthodox Islamic custom) is at its core a fiscal transaction. Take x amount of money and hand over your daughter.

    It was more of a long term alliance between two clans than just the specific transactions of the wedding day.

    Yeah, that too but only among the nobility. Still an exchange. Vastly different from the modern version and their you can't say that the institution of marriage has been around so long.

    Funnily enough, that kind of marriage probably falls closer the literal definition of "foundation of a society" than the kind of marriage most of us are talking about.
    Fighting for peace is like screwing for virginity.

    Agree with this. My partner and I will celebrate five years together in April, and neither of us have any interest in getting married. We've been to heaps of our friends' weddings in the last few years, and most of them have been cluster****s of stress, family drama and relentless photography.

    We hate being the centre of attention and public speaking, and we think that the amount of money that goes into weddings would be much better spent on things we actually enjoy (travelling together, etc).

    But I don't see our relationship as being any less legitimate or permanent than other people, simply because they happen to have bought each other some expensive bits of metal and said some stuff.

    That's not what I said and it puts the cart before the horse.

    Marriage generally helps the people in it live richer, more productive lives. It's beneficial to those in it and beneficial to society.

    Don't think there ever was a period in humanity before religion so hard to know. Certainly there was religion at least as far back as civilisation.
