Is living with someone basically the same as being married to them?

Without commitment. No it isn't the same. Living together is simply a sloppy way of acting like a married couple without the responsibilities. Many people will argue "Well, it's only a piece of paper! Big deal!" It's not about the legal piece of paper, but it's committing to someone you love and what better way can you do this then by committing to marriage. Anything else is a cheap way to try and get what you want without taking responsibility for anything. I'd rather live on me own .... it's simpler that way.

You don't have to get married at all. However, if you live with someone, maybe even have children with someone, being married gives you greater rights and makes inheritance easier if one of you should die for instance. Insurances may also offer better cover for a married husband/wife than for someone who's only living together.

In the Catholic Church, if you haven't attempted another marriage without the previous marriage being determined to be invalid and are not living with someone that you are not married to, you can.

Unless they are not informed of you being married it is nonsensical.
