Well, all that still comes under how I view commitment -- an allegiance and promise between people who are aligned toward the same goals. If it's a life-long commitment, that's up to the people involved. But I think you can still be committed to someone with whom you are in a relationship, without that commitment necessarily meaning marriage or forever -- or even long-term. You can commit to supporting your partner(s) to be the best they can be, for example, without a time stamp on it.
