Poll: Purpose of marriage

So, I have heard a couple of celebrities in the past few days say that they will, of course, be having children after they get married because the purpose of marriage is to have children. Hmmm...

Got me thinking.

So, what do you think the purpose of marriage is?
Is the purpose of marriage to populate the planet?

    I heard that too, and it struck me the wrong way because...

    1. Some couples choose not to have children.

    2. Some couples cannot have children.

    Marriage, to me, is the public proclamation that you want to spend your life with another person. It may include children, it may not.

  • Just out of curiosity, which celebrity said that?  

     

    Anyway, I agree with mm- marriage is a public promise/covenant that you are committed to spending your life with and being faithful to this person, regardless of whether children are involved.

  • I think it was Mariah Carey, but I don't know for sure.

    Anyways, I think marriage is about spending your lives together. Sex is about marriage. Duh. (haha sorry)?

    Yeah, Mariah Carey is the one I heard on an interview saying that.

  • I agree with the others. I think marriage is about publicly announcing your love to one another and vowing to spend the rest of your life with this special person.

  • I agree with pp - public commitment/commitment to one another/Mariah Carey's an idiot.

    Interesting poll though.

  • The purpse of marriage is to commit your love to another person.

  • Sorry, I fell off the face of the planet there for a while.

    Yes, it was MC, and I think either Jennifer Lopez or Jessica Alba or someone else said something similar. Crazy people...

    Glad I'm not the only one who thinks so Surprise

  • Didn't Mariah Carey get married after only dating the guy for like 2 weeks? Maybe she just has a whole different view of what marriage is...
