Will you get MARRIED?

Only 10-30% of married couples are "happy" in their marriage. On top of that half of all marriages end in a disgusting divorce. More so in some european countries.

Ask any old man what the worst decisions in his life were... Marriage will most certainly be one of them.

Modern marriage is all about quarrels. Not only that it's also extremely risky for men (no need to explain).

  • I've officially been married for a month to my best friend (we dated for 4 1/2 years before getting hitched.) Honestly, all through my 20's I had a hard time wrapping my mind around marriage - it just seemed so serious and permanent, and I was neither of those things (and I'm still not.) I think finding the right person is a big part of it, and honestly if I never found my husband I think I would've been fine with being unmarried for a long time - possibly forever - because I just was never very attracted to the idea of marriage before I met him. You're totally right, many marriages end in divorce, but that doesn't mean that marriage itself is flawed; it moreso reflects the fact that people are still rushing into marriage before they're ready and for the wrong reasons.
    As far as "quarrels" go, yeah, if you're going to spend a lifetime with someone then you're going to have some disagreements. It shouldn't be the end of the world or the end of the marriage. A great indicator of whether or not someone is "right" for you (before you get married) is how you argue/fight/quarrel with each other.

  • I am happily married to a man I love, so I don't know what you're talking about. Just because everyone else fail to make it work doesn't mean we are doomed for the same fate. Hard work, mutual respect and putting each other first instead of being selfish can and will make marriage work. Too many people are entitled and self-righteous nowadays, that's why marriages fail.

  • I married my BFF last Saturday 7/11/2015, right now we are on our honeymoon in Hawaii for another week, it's so beautiful and romantic. We have both always been of the same thought that we wanted to marry. We both reasoned that it was better to marry the love of our lives early and spend the rest of our lives together; rather than hopping around from one relationship to the next when we'd already found "The One".

    • Lets see how long you last...

      The earlier you get married, iirc, the more chances you have of divorce. So you have like an 80% chance I assume

    • Might be true, we don't see that in our future, both our families have modeled long term marriage relationships from grandparents and parents. First we are both of the opinion that divorce is not an option for either of us. Second we have been inseparable best friends since we were five and six, we've had our differences and spats, yet we've always decided that we were each other's BFF. We never really wanted to date around after our friendship took a turn for the romantic, I loved him as my best friend and I love him as my husband and from our conversations he feels the exact same way.

    • Of course you don't.

      There's always a first time.

  • What makes you think that is completely true? I bet that is 60% young couples who get married before 30, everyone should just get married after 30 if they want to... and believe me i was with my ex for 9 years, and i know feelings change, but what i do know is, so much more what i want now and who i could be compatible with, so while you have a good point i still want to get married in the future.
    Being young is fun but i want to grow old with someone, when my looks fade away i want someone to still look into my eyes and find me beautiful.

  • Well. If you live your life in fear, just because of some (i am not even sure about their accuracy) statistics, then isn't that a rather sad and uneventful life?
    To each their own... However, Id like to get married one day to the person that i wish to share the rest of my life with. It is just the most beautiful celebration of love between two people.

  • I'm not huge on marriage plus I'm only 19, so it's the last thing im thinking about at this moment. But if the right person comes along then why not. I've seen a lot of shit growing up and it always makes me question marriage but I also know that not every marriage is a fail and what I've seen doesn't necessarily mean it's gonna happen to me but it would take a lot from me before I'd marry someone

  • What country has only 10 to 30 per cent of happy marriages? The way I feel right now hek no I am not getting married. Marriage was good once when people put more effort into relationships but now there are so many shitty people out there that many people are not worth marring in the first place.

      Half of all marriages end in a divorce so obviously at least 50% are unhappy. Also, it's a well known fact that people stay in unhappy marriages because they're too damn scared to divorce. These people are the majority of married couples.

    • Earlier, it didn't matter one bit if they accepted your flaws or not. After all, they're not allowed to have any say in anything, let alone think for themselves.

    • Yes but what my point is generally people where more accepting back then than nowadays anyway.

  • Well, of the 3% of men and women who wait until they are married before having sex, we have statistically reported better satisfaction in marriage, better sex, and an astronomically lesser chance of divorce than the averages you are probably quoting, so my chances are looking pretty good.

  • No I will not get married. Not even common law; I'll kick the bitch out of my house every 2 years. I'll call it Common-Law Day and it's the day she has to pack her shit and move out, not cohabiting with me for a full year before returning.

    It'll be like the Ramadan of legal loopholes. I'll 'fast' on the cohabiting, and when the non-continuous year of the 3 year requirement is over, I'll celebrate my own Eid al-fitr with the bitch moving back in.

Do you think guys who are in relationships don't want to get married? I want to get a great, muscular body... does that mean I can't have it? I want to get an apple watch or a 3d printer, does that mean I can't have them?
