If marriage is useless for guys now, why are some still hurt if we were to say NO to it?

Anonymous
In the cases where the girlfriend declines his marriage proposal, I've noticed the guy has a ''huh, what just happened'' expression, he looks down or is nearly in tears. He gets hurt by it.

Guys... you don't want it and it's understandable... so why do they get hurt if his girlfriend says NO?

I had a similar reaction when I acted like them and said ''No, I never want kids either''. Suddenly a couple male co-workers wanted to know why I felt that way, if a guy broke my heart or something. What? I thought you guys didn't want marriage nor kids.
