Many couples nowadays prefer not to get married even if they have long relationships with their partners. Young people don't think about marriage as our parents used to twenty years ago. If our parents got married and had children between nineteen and twenty-five years, more or less, young people nowadays prefer to marry after the age of twenty-five. There are countries, like Spain for example, where young persons stay with their parents even until the age of thirty. The moment they want to live, but not to marry, with their partner they hire a flat and live on their own to see how it goes.
People prefer to enjoy their lives to the full until the age of thirty, even if they have a serious relationship. People need to feel more independent and some of them consider
not to be prepared for the responsibilities a marriage implies. They maybe don't have a place to live and a good income to have a family or it's just that they say it is not the perfect moment to make this important step.
Then, there are couples who live together and they can even have a baby but they don't want to marry. They don't believe in the importance of some papers which attest their marriage. These persons say that the most important thing is for them to get along together very well, to love and respect each other. Moreover, there are so many families who are married but this doesn't mean they are happy.
In my opinion, marriage has not become outdated, it's merely attitudes to marriage that people have. I don't know if there is a perfect someone for everyone and if there is if you'll ever find him or her but I know that when marriage does work and when it's worked at it's a beautiful, warm and fun thing. I don't believe in the fact that one should only have children when being married and that or that everyone in a relationship should end married. But what I actually strongly believe in cohabiting before marriage because it gives you the chance to know better the person you are with and to see if you can stand that person's attitudes and behaviours.
To conclude, marriage should never be a jail sentence but likewise it's not a holiday either. I think one should enter into it only when he understands what it really means and is prepared to put in the large amounts of effort required to keep it fresh, fun and he will take part in one of the most beautiful experiences on earth.
