If you`re asking my
opinion, all good things arising from relationships come from great communication skills, reciprocity, and solid agreements. Wedding rings, dresses, cakes, guest lists, public kissing, priests, bouquets, and documents that can be voided as quickly as they are signed have zero to do with it.
If by marriage you mean cohabitation, you`d have a little more of an argument. Although, even that`s highly debatable. If we were to say that cohabitation is the best way to raise children, we may as well concede that monogamy is too.
More importantly, children are not essential to any relationship. It is not automatic. It is not tantamount to having a stable relationship. It`s a separate decision altogether.
