I didn't read all posts. I don't think a couple has to get married. I've never been married. I was with my kids dad for 8 years, horrible abusive alcoholic. I am so glad we didn't marry. The split was so much easier. My bf I am now with, we will never get married. We both agree on this. You don't need a piece of paper to determine your level of commitment. We love each other and want to be together for the rest of our lives. Every other couple around us are divorcing it seems. Not us. Happy as can be here. We do live together. Marriage doesn't guarantee it's gonna work.
