What is the reason (s) a guy isn't ready to get married?

I don't quite understand the explanation of being young and unready. Can you give me any solid thoughts on what is holding a guy back from marriage? Assuming the guy values the relationship and wants to get married one day

  • Its a huge commitment right up there with having kids. Most marriages fail so fear about that can be huge. He may not be totally sure if he's the right fit for you or vice versa.

    He may have a few things he wants to experience before settling down. Money could be a factor. He may be comfortable the way things are now.

    There's so much more that could be a reason too

  • Logically, marriage is not a good place for a man to be, and the odds of a happy marriage (for a man) are dismal.
    With odds like 1 in 5, you'd be stupid to bet your life's work and life savings on it.Yes, only 1 in 3 marriages end in divorce (still a case of Russian roulette), but the rest aren't all happy.

    If a man wants to be loved and enjoy a sexual relationship, his chances are twice as good of he remains single.He'll probably have to change women about every 4 years, but he can keep doing it.If a man gets married, it ends up like this:men love women, women love children and children love guinea pigs.The guinea pig wins, no-one loves the man, and he just pays for the whole show.
    When divorce happens, he probably won't know why, but he has no house and still has to support the guinea pig.He'd be lucky to afford a weekend holiday with the next woman he meets.

    50% of women are no longer physically attracted to their husband within 4 years of marriage.The women can't help it, because it's a chemical thing in their head.It doesn't matter if he's a better man than ever, and that can even increase the likelihood.He can look forward to a lifetime with no sexual relationship.
    80% of women have reached that state within 20 years of marriage.

    The main reason men shy away from marriage is because most women are physically and emotionally disfunctional in long term relationships.The real problem is that you can't tell which ones are which, because all women are equally convincing at the the start.

  • Possibly losing your children & half the stuff you own is a good reason, a lot of marriages go sexless as well so it's no surprise why they wouldn't be interested in that, most marriages end in divorce nowadays so you're not going into very good odds, typically less freedom to do as you please, men typically have to financially support their wives to some extent so maybe he's not financially ready to handle it, maybe he's just not ready to start a life with you yet etc.

    There are very many reasons

  • When young? Not sure if this is the right girl.

    When older? Broke, still chasing young tail, child support commitments, etc.

  • I have heard that after people get married, they start taking a lot of the little things for granted, sex doesn't mean the same thing anymore and the intimacy kind of leaves
