i was married there was no question about it. But none of my three children (the eldest being 26) has made the move yet. One is living with her boyfriend, the other ones are dating. Secretly I wish that they would be an 'old fashioned' family. But I dont say anything. Is marriage an outdated institution?

Is it? Not really but the notion that you have to be married in order to live together and start a family is of course totally outdated. I think young people find it difficult to even get the concept of why marriage is so important. There are certain financial advantages or disadvantages and I think people decide by those.

Nope it never will outdate. What more natural than getting friends & family involved and announcing that you will share your life together? Whatever you call it is not important but people will always continue to make their love official; it's just human nature.

Marriage is less popular now but people predicted it to be a thing of the past years ago. It's still going strong isnt it?
