  • Yes! One day I would like to get married for sure. Probably with kids ideally but I'm not quite certain on that.

    Naturally, I'd want to find the right person to get married with though. I think one of the reasons why many marriages fail is because they happen during the fiery passion stage but burn out before they get to the warm compassionate love stage.

    I also figure that once I get married, I am going to stick with it the best I can. A lot of other marriages fail is because divorce is seeked too fast instead of working out problems.

  • I'd rather be running late getting home and have my future wife calling to see I'm all right, than have my 80-year-old grandma constantly checking in on me. If I got married, maybe my grandma would learn to relax a little. And if I have to have a woman constantly keeping tabs on me like she's a freaking probation officer, I'd much prefer it be the one I can have kids with than the one who randomly brings up embarrassing memories of when I was 6.

  • I don't see a reason for marriage. Why do we have to have a contract? A relationship can be the same as a marriage, but without the contract.

    I want to find a woman with whom I spend the rest of my life with, have kids and all that, but I don't know if I'll get married, given how there's no reasons for it.

    • Well for starters, you can walk out anytime when your not married, and no body has to hold you accountable for keeping your relationship and family together.
      With marriage you are obligated and heald accountable before God and family (witnesses) to keeping your marriage intact. You can't walkout anytime you want.

    • @hellionthesage I understand where your coming from but I live by a different way. I am to find a wife who is faithful just as I am faithful to her.

    • @Splintercell I doubt any one whent into a marriage with the belief that they where marrying some one unfaithfull or disloyal. Otherwise why marry at all? Its your choice of course but the fact is most if not all men who suffered as I have mentioned believed as you do at the time. It didn't help.

  • Not with the current laws in existence. Currently every law benefits women in divorce proceedings. 80% of all divorces are filed by women, 80% of all alimony and child support is paid for by men. Women get full or partial custody of children over 90% of the time to a mans 46% of the time. Then taking into account that most prenuptial agreements get tossed out (I think its over 75% of them) and that her cheating or filing for divorce does not factor into child support/custody/alimony thus making the man pay for her choices, for her destroying the marital contract, I cannot see a reason to get married. Thats not to say I wouldn't want to, I do, but given the current legal system and its incredible bias its simply to dangerous a situation. Frankly I've seen men who have lost thier children in custody battles, its not pretty and I couldn't bare to experience that so that combined with all of the finacial issues as well, no I don't think I would get married.

    I've been twice almost married. Thank god it never happened.

    Why you ask? Relationships go down when people stop fighting for each other. Knowing that you really have the person makes you fight less. And marriage is the ultimate thing to say "I got him/her".

    The most successful long term relationships (20 years and plus) I have seen are from people who were never married. They stay in love.

  • I did at one point... after seeing my parents' marriage and others... as well as having dating experience... I think most women are far too fickle to trust with such a heavy legal commitment.

    Not to mention... marriage offers me nothing. Literally. Marriage is a contract anyone can break for any reason at any time, and frequently results in the man having continued responsibility without continued benefits.

    Marriage does not offer a guarantee of having a family to go home to... does not mean you will have a steady lover, and from what I've seen, makes women think they don't have to work for you anymore while you must continue to court them. Nah. I think just living together is far smarter than legal marriage. (Assuming your state does not have any common law marriage types.)

  • Yeah, I'd like to get married eventually. But I can't see it happening any time soon. The most I can hope for right now, is finding the girl I will eventually marry, so that we can start getting to know each other, and our relationship can progress before we are old and run out of time.

  • No. Marriage provides little to no benefit for me as a man, and all the risk of losing my stuff if a divorce happens. Besides, I'm not monogamous, nor does anyone require a fancy overly expensive ring and a document to declare their love for one another.

  • Yes, I do, but not until I have enough money to support her, since I'm still in graduate school.

    But also, I'm not saying all women are evil, but it's fucking difficult to impress women these days unless you look like fucking Spartacus or have a six-digit income.

    There's a chance that more of us men will end up staying single forever because of this.

  • I definitely do in the long run. I am already 34 and not seeing anyone now. I am unsure if I want kids so I am in no hurry. But when I think about it I can picture myself married one day. I was never one to dream about my wedding day or have pretend weddings when I was younger or anything but I can see it.
