Let me answer this question as a single woman. Marriage nowadays has become an institution of convenience. People are not serious about anything, it's all about what am i getting out of it, how will i benefit? It has become so ordinary for someone to stand up in the midst of a crowd and say those vows and not mean a word of what they say. People do it just to be seen and recognized. We live in a world where marriage is for a few, the rest are just jokers, like lets try and see what will come of it. I have seen men especially not wearing their rings just so they can go around spoiling young girls, taking advantage and wasting their time in the name of love. This is just an avenue of cheating. Others may do it so that people may think of them as singles thus no responsibility.
