The reason for the marriage thing is simply this: not every woman (or man) wants to get married. The cultural and often sexist assumption is that it's all women want and strive for, and it simply isn't true.

I agree with that (I'm not married myself and don't feel any great desire to be) but my point is we shouldn't fall into the opposite assumption, that portraying characters getting married automatically equals a sexist cop-out.  The reasons are important.
