But without marriage there's no real commitment?

Um, yeah there is. You don't need to be married be committed. In fact, I'd argue non-marital lifelong partners are far more committed to each other because they don't have marriage as a crutch to keep them together. My cousin has been with his girlfriend for, I think, 14 years now and all is going well for them.

Though I think we need to think of a better term for people who are in a lifelong relationship but aren't married that's better than life partner, since that's usually just the PC term used to describe gay relationships/marriages, and girlfriend/boyfriend seems far too juvenile.

I feel like marriage discourages cheating more than just a relationship. I don't have any statistics on that, but yah.

Something like 95% of all married people have had at least one extra-marital affair.

So no.

I'm seeing anywhere between 20% and 50%, this being just one of those sources.

Stats plz.

Marriage gives legal protection, rights and tax breaks. Lol SFK :DDDD

Funny thing was, there was an article about a polygamist on Yahoo's front page today and the most concern was how the tax forms would look like if the single legally married couple of the household could afford all the 17/25 children still living with them.

Ohh this

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infidelity#Incidence

The last ones says:

Relationships: 30-40%
Marriages: 18-20%

Of course there are lots of problems with this. First, what counts as infidelity (flirting with someone at the workplace might not be considered by some, doing stuff with a dirty magazine, chatting online, etc) and deciding if there is any kind of factor to correct for when it comes to marriage..xD How awkward. But whether or not marital status has anything to do with changing a person's behavior/feelings towards others that they consider attractive, I'd have to say that it won't.

Eh, I think I might have been citing a different statistic relating to infidelity. Dunno, considering I did zero research before making that estimate other than the old "I think I read this somewhere".

*A wild etf appears*

Jumping on the marriage topic, I want to be married one day.

If we're going to be together forever, or plan to be, whatever. Why not? Legal benefits!

That being said, I'M FUCKING TERRIFIED. Don't tell Dan, k. I want to get married one day, I know it. BUT I'M SO SCARED. I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY. It's terrifying putting a ring on it and knowing that if I have to I can't get out. Even if I believe completely that we'll always be able to talk about things and such. There's just something scary about it. Idk. I'm all over the place, sorry.

Thanks. For a moment there I was worried, though. I almost needed to blow you.
