A lot of women on GAG seem to think that marriage has to follow true love. However, if you look at it marriage is really not a good idea for men. A long term relationship without getting the government involved is usually the healthy route for the guy, Divorce courts usually rule in the favor of women.
I'm not going to back up my musings with detailed information because I am lazy but these are things I think of when marriage is brought up: 2009 A French woman sues her husband because of a lack of sex and won about $14 thousand. In a way doesn't this set a precedent that women can rape their husbands in France? Could you imagine the backlash from feminists if a woman was coerced into sex in such a way?
Kobe Bryant is reportedly giving his ex-wife $150 million in money and assets. How many championships has she won to deserve that money? How many points does she average per game to justify such a settlement?
One instance of a woman being screwed over is Britney Spears and K-Fed. She is paying for the house he is living in while he just continues to be a dead beat compared to her. We all know this doesn't happen often though. It is usually a successful man being taken to the cleaners.
Over half of marriages end in divorce. The numbers are different depending on who you ask but most people would agree the divorce rate is at about half. You have to assume it will happen to you to protect yourself and your future. I don't care how happy YOU THINK you are going to be.
I think that a lot of the feminists pulling the strings are stupid. I also think marriage is stupid.

Pretty much everyone in my family have been married for 25plus years.
I think the problem in today's world is people don't take their vows seriously and aren't fighting for their future. Relationships are hard work it's just a matter of finding someone worth the fight. No relationship is perfect and people fight but you make it work. I have been with my boyfriend for 4 years and we have been threw so much but at the end of the day I love him and I will never give up on us because he is worth the fight and the struggles and the good and the bad the for better and for worse.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
Imagine allowing yourself to love in this way, to realize that no fight or angry moment or holding a grudge to never allowing old mistakes get in the way. Marriage can be a very special and rewarding thing, it doesn't need to be a joke..
