Lately, I have been wondering the need for a marriage. While I am not trying to ask if marraige is necessary, I am more or less asking the real reasons people go for it. Yeah there are things like personal choice, been happy etc. But are there any other reasons as to why people take the jump? I am of the belief that it is more or less down to us trying to do what is accepted as the norm, or have been instilled into us. Thoughts?
