Marriage, not "now"?

Marriage is "old-fashioned," it's all about "now" not "until death do us part." This is, in so many words, the answer given by an actress when asked on an entertainment show why she and her live-in husband(?) of seven years have not tied the knot.

Nothing surprising in attitude and practice here. But why must we be so dogmatic about what's "now?" Is the past really passé? And, what about the future? Let's not talk about marriage or commitment . . .
