Love without marriage? Have you done it?

In Australia, a growing number of couples in committed long-term relationships who have children (or intend to) and share a home and finances, have decided not to say I do.

Have you made a similar call on marriage? We'd love to hear your reasons for avoiding the altar. 

Or, if you are married, what does your marriage mean to you?

Did you marry because it was expected of you?

Is it a religious symbol of your commitment? Or is it a license that gives some legal framework to your relationship?
