You are definitely generalizing too much. America has every race and culture from around the world and I doubt you could get 50% of Americans to agree the sky is blue. There is no need to translate because that is an individual thing not cultural.

Still attempting to figure out why theres even a need for marriage ..
Marriage only seems to benefit religion.. the state and divorce lawyers who all profit from it.

There are things to be said for tradition. Not everything old is bad and not every change is for the better.

Marriage is about commitment, responsibility, and hard work with lasting love. Responsibility to each other, family, children, and friends and community. This creates a stable nurturing society for the children and older family members as well as for the couple. Marriage keeps sexual diseases from happening and spreading. It is the ultimate spiritual and emotional commitment in Society. It is about showing commitment with honor and respect with dignity. What do the French value?
