One thing I think people loose track of as well in today's disposable marriage mentality is what they will give up in their twilight years (which with medicine these days lasts a long time).
I look forward to growing old with my wife. I want a woman who knows me through and through, and accepts me for who I am. I want to be in love with someone I accept through and through.
I want to enjoy grandchildren with her, and if we should be so lucky great grandchildren.
Maybe I'm alone in this line of thinking, but I think commitment leads to that part of your life being all the more sweet. I know many couples that divorced and often times one or the other feels alienated from the grandchildren, or when big events in their life come up there's enough tension in the room to be able to cut it with a chainsaw.
