This is a new one for me, but maybe other have heard of this before. A male family member, early 60's, and twice divorced, is going to have a commitment ceremony with the women he has been with for about a year and a half. They each have a home in different states, but because he is currently unemployed, he spends 3 weeks with her and then flies home for a week; according to my MIL, it is to spend time with his children and grandchild. I do not know if the woman has ever been married or why they decided to not get married.
So why would a heterosexual couple have a commitment ceremony? I understand them not wanting to get married, but why not just leave things as they have been? What am I missing?
