I'm asking this because I've seen a few responses that the single men on gag are bitter, and thing women are only after them to steal their money. For me it's not an issue of bitterness, or a distrust of women in particular. If anything I distrust the legal system, and I don't want to get legally married, or condone what in my mind has become and exploitative money making business as far as the courts are concerned. A private wedding or ceremony is fine, and I'm not against committment or monogamy. For some reason, some have this tunnel vision that true love = marriage. Life isn't carved in stone, and you can be perfectly happy and committed in a cohabiting relationship. Legal statuses and contracts don't really change or guarantee anything, people's behavior and intentions do.
Alright, that was my long rant, so how do you feel about it?

well I do see it as kinda bitter and false belief.
It's one thing to say you don't want to get married because you don't believe in monogamy in general or something. But your reasoning...
"has become and exploitative money making business as far as the courts are concerned" well you know, courts aren't run for profit. They don't make money off your marriage. They charge you yes, only because we don't want your personal futes paid by tax money
"Legal statuses and contracts don't really change or guarantee anything" well actually they do in many ways. Marriage IS a legal contract and it comes with benefits. When you marry you get to decide your next of kin. And that is the person that, if worse comes to worse, may have to decide if you live or die. If you'e not married they might not even be able to see you. And if you do die, there is something estate tax you know. Two strangers leaving each other expensive stuff such as half a house, that's taxed highly two married people no tax mostly. AND if you're married your widow will get survivors benefit. Even without a will everything you have goes to your spouse
Then there's taxes and health insurance and stuff like that
My uncle died young and never married my aunt and frankly they weren't quite prepared for that. Them not being married was nothing but trouble. It weird that someone you share your life with has no say in what happens to you.
SO ya that's that. And then I hope you understand you're not picking a random stranger to get married to. You should be able to pick someone who won't totally screw you over. So what guys are really saying here is, they have bad taste in women and they don't want it in writing1

It all depends on their reasons.
"I don't wanna get married because all women are sloots who will marry you, fuck the neighbor, divorce you, and take all your money. UGH!!!". That's a bitter guy cause he's generalizing that every woman is after his money and that that is the only reason she's getting married.
"I don't wanna get married because I don't see the point of marriage, when it's simply a paper. You can have a great life, a great family, and a great relationship with your girl, and you don't have to get married." That's not a bitter guy, cause he has a valid reason.
I don't know if I wanna get married, cause personally I don't see a valid reason when you can have the same relationship without signing a paper. Also, marriages can fail, and if my marriage fails, I don't wanna go through all that trouble of the divorce (huge waste of money) and risking half my stuff.4
