It's beneficial to the state for people to marry and procreate for various reasons though. That is why they get involved with it.
WRONG!!.... I personally know of many "single parent" families
(mostly mothers) and rightly or wrongly the DNA of the offspring is the
mothers plus more than the one DNA from the male donation.
Plus it can't just be a Religious Institution that people get married at because some people aren't religious. Marriage is actually more of a
Contract Agreement between people which doesn't even require Religion.
I can agree with that .... however it is my personal view that 'marriage' is more
a personal declaration
of in most cases
a mans integrity in saying
I totally commit to this relationship with this particular person.
I know of many cases of couples living together who are keen to state that
they have solid relationships and "who needs the documentation"
keep them together, and have broken up after many years (in one case
17 years and another 30 years) and they who didn't believe in that "piece
of paper" have gone on to "MARRY"
their next partner??
Just look at those in the 'limelight' .... Brad Pitt, George Clooney, ...
just to name just two!!
