Not really interested. I think I'll fall in love and fall out of love within this lifetime more than enough times. I don't need some legally binding contract to restrict my life even further. I make enough compromises as it is. I will not delve into insanity during this lifetime.
While I'm appalled by marriage as a cultural norm, or as a way to show off your happiness or wealth (by making a real spectacle of it), I find it interesting as a symbolic way to show the community, but first and foremost each other, how deeply you care for each other.
Might be that I think this way because I tend to the shy side, and as such making a "public display" of myself is one of the greatest efforts I can do for someone.
Or I might be a hopeless romantic :p
