Getting married is equivalent to getting your partner's name tattooed on you. Thoughts?
I'll explain. I just had a thought that many people believe (rightly in my opinion) that getting a partner's name tattooed onto your body is a stupid thing to do because while you may have every intention of being with them forever, it's just not worth it. In the cases where it doesn't work out, you're pretty screwed.
Why is getting married any different? You're showing your commitment by making vows you're not honestly capable of making (you can be 100% sincere but that's not what a vow means) and you become legally integrated with that person permanently.
And yeah, divorce is there to help if it doesn't work out, but you can have tattoos laser removed. Both can hurt a lot at the time, leave you sore for a while after and can leave you with ugly scars, whether physical, emotional or financial.
I can't see why there is so much stigma against one but not the other.
Just for fun... Can you come up with a reason not to get your partner's name tattooed on your body that doesn't have an analogous argument not to get married?
