I occasionally get asked what are some good reasons to get married. These questions come over the top-site here, and also in person. My default answer - especially to someone of means, in their 40s or beyond is ... there is never a really good reason to get married. There are plenty of reasons NOT to get married. But here are some POTENTIAL good reasons to get married - for the general public:
1) To start a family
2) If the person you are marrying can raise your standard of living
3) Love - but this should NEVER be the only reason for getting married ... NEVER ... NO NO NO!
I cannot think of any other potentially good reasons to get married - anyone have any?
