Being married is awesome. Not only do you get to live with (hopefully) your best friend in the entire world (who also does the sex with you), but you get breaks on taxes, someone to go pick up that pizza when you both decide that going out on Saturday night is just too much work, and half of everything they own is yours if your spouse accidentally dies under mysterious circumstances.
