Know it's a late reply but I enjoy this topic, dearly.  


I feel that marriage is almost overrated, It's a announcement to everyone of your commitment to your significant other, why is there a need to plan a huge gathering to do that? It's like inviting everyone over to your house to only announce your goal to lose 10 kg in the next 4 months. 


Anyone else feel that way?

For the people whom are married, I don't wish to offend, I'm just an inquistive person. 

Although I wouldn't mind a simple garden party like Mark Zuckerburg's.
