So true, the without the paper we would still be us. We were commonlaw before the ceremony anyways. But marriage gets such a bad wrap sometimes that I think it is far better than some people think. I have a friend pushing for marriage too, and a friend pushing for a baby. They are so focused on "the plan" that it seems they aren't just enjoying being together, so I hear you on that. Sometimes you gotta just let it be.
