I'm starting to get the impression that marriage is fading out of style with both sexes, especially with the younger generation. Is this true? For the guys, what would it take for you to pop the question? For the ladies, how would you get a man to put a ring on it? And for the people already linked up, what did it take for him (or her, if you're progressive like that) to pop the question?

It would take me for starters, woman who did not view casual sex as a good thing (greater number of partners the greater the probability of divorce and infidelity, statisticly speaking) then we would have to change all the laws on marriage since a woman can at any time file for divorce with out justification (no fault divorce is the most common, 80% of which are filed by women, 20% of divorces are filed due to infidelity, 12% of which are due to the wifes infidelity) they would then have to change the laws on alimony and childsupport (80%, higher in some states, are payed by the husband), they would have to change there policy of giving women full/nearly full custody over children. They would have to respect the prenuptial agreement (It gets overuled to often) and treat marriage as a legally/socially binding contract where the person who causes the damage is held accountable for the dissolutionment of the marriage, currently infidelity (at least when its the woman) is not part of the ruling when determining alimony/childsupport/custody. So until that happens I am going to very much not want to be married, not that I would not want to in its original sense, but now, in our society it is to politicised and too risky for a man to partake in.2
