Besides the legal ramifications, there are the emotional considerations. Humans are emotional creatures (a thought you seem to dislike, judging by this and the adoption thread), and the ceremony, no matter how simple or brief, provides a capstone. There's no need for a funeral, either, the deceased is just as dead, but it provides closure, thus fulfilling a need.

Now, if you don't need a ceremony or a certificate (or a hole in the ground), by all means don't ask for them, and please feel free to actively refuse them. Do not, however, insist upon foisting you desires and gratuitous opinions on others.

Second, if you do it right, it becomes habit.

Third, some people actually *like* being married to the person they're married to.

Finally, here are two things to bear in mind:
1) Your spouse is exactly the kind of person someone like you would marry;
2) You are exactly the kind of person someone like your spouse would marry.

Hell, even Hitler stayed married until the day he died.

Not every jurisdiction recognizes common law marriage.

Right. In fact, most states do not recognize it.
