: Why do people get married?
: Because we need a witness to our lives. There's a billion of people on the planet. What does any one life really mean? But in a marraige, you are promising to care about everything - the good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things... all of it, all the time, every day. You're saying "Your life will not go unnoticed, because I'll notice it. Your life will not go unwitnessed, because I'll be your witness."
World of Yesterday / Stefan Zweig
