I think that marriage is an important think in our life, so it is not right when people do not value the sign of their family . Nowadyas, the most important think for society is their careers, what do you think about it?

Since this is only a three round debate, I will make my case now, instead of acceptance......

First I will define necessary since Pro failed to do so.

necessary- of an inevitable nature : inescapable

Is marriage really inevitable?

inevitable- impossible to avoid or evade.

The only thing that is really impossible to avoid is death.

The consumption of food and drink are possible to avoid, meaning on contrary to popular belief food is not necessary.

Is marriage possible to avoid?

Marriage is possible to avoid, you choose to get married, after you say "I do" that means you are bound to that until you seperate. You choose to get married. Anything that is a matter of choice is possible to avoid.

Marriage comes from the religious tradition. It conseals the love between two people with the blessing of God. It may not be absolutely necessary, but it is/should be accepted and is a beautiful thing to celebrate. God's wish is for everyone to love one another. Why not? :)

Regardless of how he implied it, he failed to define it......

Emospongebob-- You're equivocating on the word "necessary" and using it to mean something different than what toka94 meant. Unless you two agree on the definition of "necessary", this debate will go nowhere.
Here's the definition from dictionary.com. I don't see inevitable or unavoidable on this list. Necessary:
adjective
1. being essential, indispensable, or requisite: a necessary part of the motor.
2. happening or existing by necessity: a necessary change in our plans.
3. acting or proceeding from compulsion or necessity; not free; involuntary: a necessary agent.

I'm confused. The name of the debate is "Is Marriage Really Necessary" and the instigator is Pro. But then in his debate introduction, he says that the most important thing for societies is careers. So, what exactly does he want this debate to be about? The importance of marriage, or the importance of careers. It was an incoherent introduction to a debate.

According to scientists rom Michigan University proved that men who got maried is doing better in career than other ones. Moreover, in my thought, marriage is necessary, and people being in marriage more responsible for their actions than those who are not
