Why do people get married?

Hanna Baker Answered:

That’s an interesting question and although I can tell you what I feel, it’s better if you have a look at what research actually says. So a study done by Pew Research found the top answers for "why do people get married" as follows:

  • To gain legal benefits and rights
  • For financial stability, such as tax breaks, lower living expenses, and more healthcare options
  • To have their relationship recognized in a religious ceremony
  • To solidify their family after having children
  • For companionship
  • To make a serious commitment to a partner
And refreshingly, research I’ve read concludes that at 88%, love comes in as the number one reason why couples get married. Yayyy. Love rules!
