Most married couples seem so unhappy and listless that they don't look like couples at all. I have also heard of many horror stories of guys getting screwed over in a divorce as well. To me it seems like a noose around your neck having a government contract with the person you are with; it feels like you HAVE to be with them now, whether you want to or not
There are no more real tax benefits or health insurance benefits (unless you have kids), and basically every other benefit to marriage can be taken care of with a living will.
Also, weddings cost 10's of 1,000's of $'s
So what is the point of marriage?

Seriously, marriages are JUST personal contracts in the eyes of law/government. ANY female who tells you differently is being ideallistic and reading Harliquins too much.
Why? In any contract, to void it null, there is an assumption that both parties involved have equal rights and equal opportunity to have assets and judgments on any discrepency to be split. Divorce, the actual term to void a marriage contract, is completely slanted and biased to the female. Hence, what MAN, in his sane mind would enter into a contract that guarantees his failure to gain a fair opportunity?
I'm not talking known deadbeating.. that's too easy to crutch on ladies! That represents such a small proportion of the divorced men.
Most women friends in my social circles either admit it exists and are disgusted by other women who take advantage of such inequity, or admit freely they understand this is a "perk" (not my word.. a great female divorced friend actually called it that!) as motivation for marriage!
I love women and believe in Love. I am happy to know that more and more women are seeing marriage as a business contract and are finding it obsolete (and irrelevant to LOVE).
My advice, don't EVER get married. If love exists, it will nurture the relationship and evolve accordingly. The rest of it is nothing more than feminine greed hiding behind female fantasy!1
