Both simultaneously is magical, two becoming stronger as one. A contract is signed, a license issued, but when in love, it is the building and enjoying of something experienced and made together for one another.
Marriage has no point, though. It's functionally, practically, and demonstrably obsolete. Human hearts deserve something better than a contract.
Love is wonderful. Marriage is a mistake. A very costly mistake. Never get married.
Marriage is a beautiful thing. People who rush into it and have naive notions towards it are the ones who end up feeling a type of way.

Marriage doesn't work. More marriages end in divorce than not when the participants are not obligated to stay together. This is very telling. It suggests that marriage is unnatural and that insisting upon marriage and monogamy as standards of human love are inhumane and immoral stances generally.
Excellent point. Just don't have kids - so so unfair to innocent lives to leave them in dysfunctional, single-parent home. Also be sure to use protection - STDs are rampant, yikes.
I'll tell you a little secret. There is no guaranteed method of attracting the "perfect mate". While I do still hold soulmates as true, I suspect it's...
