I don’t get why everyone wants to get married.
Half of marriages end in divorce and I personally don’t understand why people need a piece of paper and some rings to prove their devoted to someone. If you have to spend a bunch of money to prove you love someone then it isn’t worth it. That is money that could be donated to charity or spent on something worth it.
Maybe it’s because I’m just a teenager, but I prefer the idea of giving the money for a wedding to charity instead of having a wedding. I don’t need a big ceremony and some rings to prove I love someone and if they need that then they don’t get who I am. People can have the most amazing weddings and think they’re so in love but then a few years later they’re spending thousands on divorce lawyers. Why waste all that money on something that isn’t even guaranteed?
A wedding doesn’t prove you love someone and I don’t understand why everyone wants to have this big glorious weddings. They’re pretty and all but why? It seems like overkill honestly, if you love someone you don’t need to prove it or tell everyone with some ceremony, just be in love and live together and do what people do when they’re married without some rings and a piece of paper because that is the only difference. Don’t base a commitment to someone off of some material things, non-married people are just as likely to split as married people.

    Married couples can qualify for tax and insurance benefits. The same loving commitment with added perks.
