Of course they can, and many people have done it. Some young people even feel that it's not "necessary" ever to get married formally. There is no law that forces a man and woman who live together to be married- though members of certain religions are condemned by that religion if they don't.


But the society in which we live, including many of its laws and customs, is built around the idea of marriage. Wives have certain rights and protection that marriage gives them. Children of a legal marriage are entitled to certain things under law. And most people we meet believe in marriage and have strong attitudes about it.

So a couple that decides not to get married must be prepared to give up certain benefits, and face certain problems for themselves and their children. But they do have the right to make that choice.
