In our local community there doesn't seem to be a lot of interest in even co-cohabitation let alone marriages for the most part. There is a few who would like to get married and there is also a fair number of "default" hierarchies due to legal marriages. I'm not that surprised as forming a lasting team of just two that is stable enough for joint investments and raising children is hard enough.
All in all I think most are just happy to not be viewed as criminals for having multiple partners.
