Would anyone like if our happy couple was happy to remain committed in a de facto manner? In other words, doesn't it make sense for the scientific-minded, (and very likely) secular couple to stay unmarried. I think in a post-modern take on the F4, released in 2015 its about time we do away with the "all roads lead to marriage" mindset. Personally, I would be thrilled if the two of them were happily involved throughout the entire trilogy/series without tying the knot. F4 #1: Reed and Sue smitten and dating. Early days of their romantic relationship. F4 #2: Reed gets Sue preggers and have a planned child "out of wedlock " F4 #3: Franklin grows up and has two loving and responsible unmarried parents. I understand the couple is one of the most "traditional American family" out of all the Marvel Universe, but I think that a family can be happy without the religious, cliche and erroneous formality of marriage.
