He should be getting pussy on demand! Anytime, anywhere, any way he wants it!
What he actually gets most of the time is. His dresser drawers are now filled with bras, panties, garter belts, nylons, slips and other items of lingerie while his things are relocated to laundry baskets in the spare bedroom. His clothes are laid out on the bed in the spare bedroom while the closets in both bedrooms are filled with skirts, blouses and dresses of all lengths, fabrics and colors. The floors and shelves in both closets are filled with shoes of every style, color and heel height
The master bathroom counter top is consumed by creams, lotions, makeup, hair dryers, curling irons and other beauty products and his toothbrush, razor, deodorant and cologne are moved to a small obscure corner of the counter top. A bouquet of flowers replaces the playboy and hustler magazines on the toilet tank and the vanity cabinets are filled with tampons and panty liners. The toilet seat is always in the down position and there's hell to pay if it's left up. Our stockings are hung (to dry) on the shower curtain rod with care in hopes Aunt Flo will soon be here.
His comforter with wildlife scenes is replaced with a floral print and lots of lace. His hunter green bedroom walls are now either pink or lavender and the duck border has been replaced by a floral border. His old blanket has been taken off the curtain rod and replaced with lace and sheers.
His recliner sits on the curb with the rest of the trash as the neighbor's dog lifts his leg and relieves himself on it. The living room is now pink with flowers everywhere and more sheers and lace. His ESPN has been replaced by the shopping network, the ballet channel and the figure skating channel. Quilted place mats and a vase of flowers replace his Hot Rod and Car and Driver magazines on the dining room table. His shoes are relegated to a Rubbermaid tray by the door, walk in the house with your shoes on don't you dare!
Your beer has been replaced by designer water and the woman in the kitchen has her hair in big pink foam curlers with green goo covering her face wearing a well worn housecoat. She slings the plates on the table and yells "Vittles is done, come and get it!"
As you eat you wonder how you got along without us especially as she sits down she declares "Honey I'm late!".5
Real benefits? Like tax breaks? Between the two of you, you can amalgamate your earnings and be provided either a break or you can earn more on a tax return. As much as people think just living together will suffice, there is still a virtue with marriage too, and you might find you are approved for loans, and taken a bit more seriously when applying for jobs or positions in the community (ie. politics, church, etc.) because marriage is a sign that you have signed up for a life-long commitment for something. Also, you have a right for certain things that tie you to your spouse, such as if one of you is hospitalized and decisions need to be made for both of you. Insurance is cheaper. Family plans and benefits are cheaper. Some of these things require proof of marriage to be approved.
Otherwise, no. There is no benefit, so if these few things don't matter then don't bother.4

Whatever you want it to be. Life is what you make of it. If you want it to be good, find a good wife and tell her what is expected. I am married. I raise two kids. I budget, I take care of the finances. We have a retirement fund, we have savings. I read self help books. I help my husband and kids improve on their characteristics. I think that I do more good than harm for my husband.2
A house over his head, majority of his financial, medical and dental needs met. Free gym access, a first born son, home cooked meals. Wifi, Netflix, mixed drinks, permanent designated driver (I don't drink), a female best friend that legitimately has his back and would break someone's face to protect him etc...3

The same benefits a woman gets. I. e. a partner who you can rely on and all that other social good stuff, (hopefully) someone who can take care of you financially (this in general depends on your economic and socioeconomic status, not all couples/individuals make enough to even with their money combined support each other), and if they happen to die you'll get some of their inheritance. Plus probably some other legal stuff. Like not having to testify against them in court or whatever.1
Tax break lol0
It depends on the guy. If he's a cuck, not much other than the hope for birthday sex. If he's an actual man...💏💋💋💋0

Only if it works out and is "successful" in which the both of remain loyal to each other and willing to make great sacrifices for each other in the toughest of times, and thus grow to old age together, but these days the odds of that ever happening realistically is less and less likely, especially when both parties married young and had an inaccurate view and expectations of what a marriage and married life is, as well as being unable to compromise with each other and work out the problems that they have with each other.
Depending on where you are check the lical laws on what benefits are given or provided wheb you choose to sign a marriage certificate and tie the knot. Oh, and remember it's ALWAYS IMPORTANT to get a good lawyer that can provide you good legal advice on marriage and help you set up a PRE-NUP. ALWAYS GET A PRE-NUP, it is much better to have a PRE-NUP than to not have any at all, in case something goes bad or goes wrong unexpectedly.
And like someone had said before, if you absolutely know it in your heart that you truly want children and be somebody's father some day, then take your chances and risks for "love" no matter what. Otherwise, it doesn't really matter all that much or even at all anymore.1
Zero. There are zero benefits for a man.
There is, however, a 50 per cent probability that a divorce court will steal everything that he owns and give it to his former wife. Also, that a spousal support order and/or a child support order will transform the man into his former wife's impoverished slave for the rest of his life.
Marriage is like playing financial Russian roulette with a revolver that has only two chambers.
It is no longer a rational act for a man to form a relationship with a woman.

Next to none.
I would not recommend marriage in 2016.
3 of my friends married when they were 23-24. 2 of them are in the process of divorce and $50,000 in debt. The third friend is getting divorced because his wife cheated on him. She still stands to take a substantial portion of his assets.
My 4th friend: never married, no kids. Computer programmer, no debt, no strings, $100,000 a year. When he's lonely he just hits up Tinder/Bumble. Score!4
Aside from tax benefits there is nothing you get in a marriage that you can't get in a commited relationship.
Furthermore, girls often give their hearts to the men they have flings with so I'd even say that there is nothing women give to their husbands that they weren't also willing to give to their fuckbuddies. The only difference is that their fuckbuddies didn't have to invest as much and didn't want to commit to them.0
The same benefits women get, except that married men get little respect, the difference is what men risk.2
Marriage was supposed to be about a virgin man marrying a virgin woman and fathering a child in the wedding night.
Since 99% of all women nowadays have no morals or decency, have premarital sex, there is no reason for marrying anymore.
Marriage has literally become obsolete.
It's a sickening joke actually, now that even fag... eh homosexuals can marry.4
Nothing. Many drawbacks, but no benefits.4
In this day and age most of the benefit for the man is BEFORE the marriage. Lovemaking will be frequent and you will retain a lot of control over your time and money. Your lady will be VERY agreeable to things you want to do in and outside of bed. She is "setting the hook" so you will marry her and give her children. This is when you are unknowingly enjoying a lot of leverage in the relationship.
Most women really get a lot of satisfaction from child rearing, not all men enjoy it as much. After you are married and especially once you have children it is VERY hard for you to get out, both by law and the social penalty and your kids will suffer. Once the woman realizes this, the level of general agreeableness will go way down. This is why the woman gets the advantage AFTER the marriage and you are stuck with very low leverage.
Not as many as there used to be. When something rewards and pays off less, you get less of it.2
Becoming her slave and puss boy3
Nothing... except you pay less tax that's it. Although the cons out weigh the pros by a ton if you do your research, especially when it comes to money. Would you like to know the cons or do you already know?0
I have no idea man.2
Studies have shown that Aman lives longer if he is married. They believe it is because the wife nags him to go to the doctor when he is not feeling well.0
nothing except a 100 % chance she files for divorce to get every penny u have2
Your laundry gets done on Sunday0
A smoked meat sandwhich and freshly cooked chicken wings on boys night0
I think it helps with taxes.1
Check the laws that benefits married people in your country1
There are none.0
A guaranteed ass fucking by the system several years down the road7
Better access to your kids. Even in divorce you will probably get partial custody vs none if unmarried.
That's it. If you're not planning to have kids don't do it.3
Anything like "emotional support" should be available to the man in a relationship, without needing marriage.
However most women will withhold whatever benefits they can, in order to force the man into the marriage state.4
