There are a lot of beautiful women who sell their bodies for little money.
On dating websites, the girls are not attractive, they want you to pay for everything, then they want to get married... if you're foolish enough to get married then they basically own your @$$.
So why would any man get married? Maybe that's why marriage rates are so low.

Well I'll just say this. The reason why I'm skeptical about getting married myself is largely due to a giant misconception people have about what can/can't happen after marriage. The idea that "looks fade but personality lasts forever" is a debunked idea in my eyes. After seeing marriages fail myself, here is the conclusion I've come to:
Life is rarely easy on a marriage. People often go into it with the best intentions, the best work ethic, and the best mindset. But when life throws one a curveball that they've never faced before, people will have different reactions to it. For some, it may make them better people, and others it may make them worse.
As a male considering marriage, i have to study this issue from a male perspective. I don't believe that most of those people who get divorced (close to 50%) entered a marriage contract believing that divorce could ever happen to them. I can't be naive myself and say that "oh, these idiots just chose gold diggers and bitchy women to marry up with." Most of them probably loved each other, initially. Most of them were probably good partners, initially. Most of them probably had the full intention of living with their partners to the end of their days, initially. But life looked at their relationships, and decided to test them by throwing in a monkey wrench. Apparently, it is tough enough to cause 50% of marriages to end in divorce. I don't necessarily blame women for that. The divorce laws are like the forbidden fruit that Adam was told not to eat in the Garden of E.. Life may be good in the garden, but the temptation is immense.
So the questions I ask myself are: Am I a special enough snowflake to beat the odds and find a girl who will stand the test of time? If a good girl in a marriage does decide to change her mind, would we separate on an equal or unequal footing? The answers are unclear to me, which reflects in my outward uncertainty about getting married1
