Numerous times I've heard this exchange from all sorts of people:
Person 1: "We're trying for a baby."
Person 2: "Wonderful! Are you going to get married?"
Person 1: "WOAH! We're not ready for that!!"
I don't understand the logic behind that. You have to take care of a child forever. If the marriage isn't working, you can just get a divorce.
Why is marriage so much more serious/frightening than having a child?
