You don't have to, if you don't want to - it is YOUR CHOICE!!!
However, the reason newer versions are released is that bugs and critical security errors are often fixed. If you are running an outdated version, there is a likelihood that your system is not as secure as it could be. In any case, you can update your kernel & core system without changing your desktop.
Why not make a backup and give the update a try? - You might like it and if not, you can always revert to your back up.
