Title says it all. Simple question, anyone can answer. I just found a video with the same title and decided to post this question.

I think men have every right to be afraid of marriage.
One word. Divorce.
My parents divorce is a perfect example. My mum was a stay at home mum and she raised me and my 4 brothers. My dad went to work and came home and helped with us. We all went to school and while we were gone my mum cleaned the house. A very traditional arrangement. When I was 13, she got a job as a security guard and she went out to work. My parents started to get divorced 2 years later. Fast forward until the end of the divorce and the resolution was this - my dad kept the house and assets because he got custody of me (all my brothers are older) because I requested to the court not to be with my mother and she didn't fight it. My mother got all of the money - she got my dad's mothers inheritance, she got my university fund (which meant I didn't go, particularly upsetting because she used it to do a third degree), she was given enough money to pay her bills and get a house. She also gets half of my dads pension which means my dad is 61 and no plans to retire. She gets nothing while he is still working.
I completely understand why a man wouldn't want to marry. And I have said to my boyfriend, because I do want to get married, I would happily sign a pre-nap. I wouldn't ever be as vindictive as my bitch of a mother, and if he wanted to give me anything, it should be out of choice not force.5
