to marry or not to marry…?

to marry or not to marry…?

Okay, so you folks are pretty helpful at answering questions. So I'm wondering (cause i really don't know where else to ask)...what are the benefits of being married? What are the drawbacks? From a financial standpoint...or anything else helpful that you might be able to toss this way? Like the post below this talks about setting up a will and the whatnot, and it got me thinking towards the future, and what my boyfriend/best friend and I would have to face in the event that we didn't get married...yada yada. Thank you very much in advance!
