Why should the modern man get married?

So not to be a broke bum living at home with parents or a street beggar.

Can't think of a single reason.

I can only think of four valid reasons to get married these days:
-A visa that allows you or your partner to live in the same country
-Having children (because children need the stability and its super weird to not share the last name with your kids, also in this case it does make sense to combine all finances)
-being gay in an environment where your family and peers are not treating your relationship with respect
-medical (few months left to live, needing to get on partner's health insurance, having some disease that might make them incapacitated in some way and wanting partner to make decisions rather than parents or the state)
In any other case people are just proving that they are so insecure that they want to emplace legal and financial barriers on breaking up.

So, he is not titled "baby daddy" as the kids say and so his son/daughter isn't asking him why he won't marry his mother and inquiring if he loves her or not.

There is absolutely nothing in it for a man to get married. You might as well find a woman you don't like and buy her a house. The woman you marry is not the woman you divorce.
There are a billion more reasons for a man to not get married than there are for him to do so. Marriage is a woman's game and she has all the advantages. All you are is the provider, the worker bee. She doesn't have to do a single thing and she still wins. A man who gets married in today's world is a fool.

Hella phrasing, Modern Man LOL. He should get married if he knows what marriage is. It's not sex. It's not an everlasting date. It's not undying romance. You don't get a perfect match by sleeping around like a sleaze;in fact, arranged marriages were better. You get the worst sex of your life in marriage and the best sex from the cheating (don't kid yourself). It's really better not to go into marriage with high expectations of endlessly glorious romance and fabulous sex forever. You'd be better off going through the outward motions to fool everyone else, united as friends keeping up a completely false front, than to have expectations. Marriage is about power, social power and upward mobility. One person is a weak little poor nobody but a married couple is a powerful social unit as strong as ten people and a couple with children is a family which is a small version of the country and has the power of 100 people. Tithing to the church, paying taxes and owning a home on a piece of land, a family is the Church in miniature and the State in microcosm. You're producing priests for the Church, soldiers for the army, nuns for the convent and the mothers of tomorrow. You're theoretically electable to public office and, if you do it all right, your husband's much more promotable at work than a single man. You get tax breaks for all of this. You file jointly. You can't be forced to testify against your spouse. Your children are tax deductible. Marriage is "an honourable estate" and that's the literal Truth. You'd be happiest if you were both completely cynical about it and went into it as partners, not lovers, trying to work it to get rich.

he shouldn't. "a survey of over 2000 heterosexual couples, found that women initiated nearly 70 percent of all divorces. Yet there was no significant difference between the percentage of breakups initiated by women and men in non-marriage relationships.2015". the purpose of marriage is to ensure a good life for children. marriage has been destroyed by lefties. now it's mostly a meaningless cash cow for females.. find a country that's not gynocentric (like one of the SEVEN countries in the world where women commit more suicide than men), move there and then get married.

God made marriage. And it never changed.

Today it's so common not to get married that fewer couples are doing it. It makes a lot of sense to me. Why get married at all? It's just the same when you live together for a long time.

Because he's met a man or woman he loves, and wants to spend the rest of his life with him or her. He also recognizes the numerous legal and financial advantages offered to married couples.
