If the stat is true, I would assume its fear of commitment (like that's new...) and the sheer fact that divorce settlements typically weigh heavily in favor of the women.

I work for a large 401(k) provider and in my old role I would be the person to approve QDRO's (Quality Domestic Relations Order). If you guys knew or saw what is in many of them, you would stay away from the idea of marriage completely.

Marriage punishes men for the most part. The majority of marriages end in a divorce. The majority of these end up with the man paying hefty alimony to the wife. That is not an attractive deal to most men, and hence it's no surprise that marriage rates are dropping

I think a big reason men aren't getting married is the media and contemporary culture. It is sexy and glamorous to be single and have multiple partners. Marriage and family seem quite dull. The acceptance of homosexuality has had little or nothing to do with it, in my opinion.

Hell, take away the government benefits that come with marriage and I'd imagine it would severely decline. It's becoming more and more obvious marriage is a joke, for numerous reasons [High divorce rate/Settlements favoring women/Absurd child support requirements/Rampant infidelity/etc].

I think it's been a pretty long time since divorce wasn't allegedly geared toward helping women more than men. The women who benefit the most from divorce are housewives, who are less common than they used to be. Just marry a woman with similar income to your own and a hypothetical divorce really isn't that bad; this also removes the potential that a woman will marry you out of practicality and likely want a divorce later. I also doubt your typical anti-marriage brah really would fight for primary custody of children either. Additionally, I think it's harder for a man to get custody of a child if he was never married to the mother in the first place.

At least the feminists don't want to trap and confine the man inside a marriage contract, where he can risk losing half his money and positions, and pay alimony and child support. The man is still free to sleep with the woman though, right? I don't personally like it but it seems to have its advantages as well.

That's why I personally don't like government laying out the conditions of marriage. I've heard horror stories of the marriage laws in Colorado. Some lady was artificially inseminated and after the child was born, some time later, she decided to sue the man for child support. And if I'm not mistaken.. he was a complete stranger, not a friend of the lady.

Then after that, in Kansas a lesbian couple also sued a complete stranger for the same effin' thing.. child support.

It's because they don't have to. Simple as that.

You don't have to be married in order to ;

- have sex
- have children
- be in a relationship/live together

Most men got married in the past to satisfy one or all of these, they don't need to anymore.

They were merely expected to. They never really had to do it. Now you have a significant enough circle jerk among people who don't believe in marriage to reduce the expectations of marriage.

Children and cohabitation create most of the legal issues people associate with marriage itself anyway so it's not entirely valid to badmouth marriage over that.

The cost to even get married. If I ever get married, I won't care about the ceremony. I just want the marriage license. A lot of women want the perfect marriage. Spending $30k for three hours on a wedding makes no god damn sense at all.

It's a bit ironic isn't it, since feminism was birthed in Europe, developed in Europe and the US before non-whites had any significant rights in those places, and homosexuals were still persecuted, yet some people claim that feminism is an attack on whites.

Not sure if srs, it is an ideology that Europeans brought into the world, so if you have a problem with it, blame the inventors and developers of it.

I have been saying this for a long time that the real battle isn't stopping gays from marrying it's the big decline in the numbers of straight men that don't want to get married and the alarming number of couples who don't want to have children. I think that society needs to even out the marriage laws to make it more encouraging to men but also to encourage couples to know the happiness that is possible from having a family.

When I think back over the past 10 years of arguing over gay marriage and then how few brahs on here both left and right are not even considering a family in the foreseeable future. That is a big problem for society and I think it is a big problem for young people today that really don't understand how great having a family can be. And if there is all this negative views on having a family how do we change that?

The original idea was there was one vote per family unit.

I would deny voting rights on the basis that MOST women behave irrationally due to purely emotional triggers and cannot be trusted to make a logical decision.

But in essence, it is not a woman's job to care about politics. She is not equipped to make an informed decision.

Worth noting, this same behavior can be seen with extremely low-iq males as well.

Which means the ancient greeks had the right idea (Only male citizens (who spent a lot of time debating and discussing the issues) had the right to vote.

Agreed the funny part is that I not only have been a champion of gay marriage but you won't find a bigger supporter of traditional marriage and the joys of being father. Bottom line I feel strongly that we need to encourage young people not only to get married but to have families earlier not latter. I'm on the other end of this and my youngest just moved out. And I feel completely lost with having an empty house. It was so amazing to come home from work to a house full of life.

I would go down to my man cave and start to watch TV and my then 5 year old would come down and first words out of his mouth was, "were ya waitin for me dad" ? And of course I would always answer oh yeah get over here. Same kid drew up a work sheet for me that had 3 columns a remote, a TV, and a little boy. Each day I was supposed to put an X thru two of them and circle the right one. (which of course was him). I still have that hanging up in my office. It's just stuff like that that makes life have so much more meaning.

DOn't plan on getting married. Saw my brother get destroyed in his divorce. He did make it back and now has almost full custody of his son through that old marriage but it took him going through a whole lot of **** to get there.

Didn't help that he was 1) Mexican, 2) big as fuark (played varsity football and lifted), 3) had lots of tats, and 4) was male compared to his ex who was white and weighed 100 lbs soaking wet. His ex wife lied her ass off too. Court believed her until my nephew was 11 or 12 then her lies started to unravel. Took that long for the court to even be fair. And don't get me started on the many differences between the two of them that should have granted him full custody from the beginning.

So no. I don't plan on getting married. Not just because of that but its a big part.

It's because people are douches when it comes to marriage. I mean both parties. Couples need to realize it ain't going to be easy and most couples should start marriage counseling from the beginning or get a book or something. The good parts of being married are worth the risk and there is plenty a person can do to up the success factor dramatically.

Forget about economics, you ever see the emotional damage that happens with a divorce? Luckily my friend who is going through one is making a ****load of money, by focusing on side jobs. That's what tends to happen after a divorce, a man's income increases because for a while, he'll focus on his work.

The good parts of being married are worth the risk and there is plenty a person can do to up the success factor dramatically.

Maybe so but it can't be ignored that the courts are very much so behind women when it comes to divorces. He tried to make it work and she screwed him financially and emotionally.

I'm not getting into that trap just because some other people were able to make it work. Odds are already stacked against me. Why walk into the trap willingly?

Because when you find the right person they make you not just twice as good but many times better than you are alone. I was successful financially before I got married but it sucked not having someone to share it with. I still remember how bad it sucked to go home to my empty new house. Go on exotic trips alone and all the rest. Then I also remember doing all those things with someone I loved was so much better.

Then along came the kids and it was awesome getting to share all of that all over again. Right now things are pretty rough going with my wife and all but you know what even if the worst of worsts, so I get ruined financially and the emotional turmoil of a divorce. It would have been worth it because the first 20 years were so good. I've had an awesome life and everything wonderful that happened to me was because of the women I choose to share my life with.

Now how imagine how you'd be if she decided to leave you.

Oh I've imagined that because we have gone thru quite a rough patch still going thru it now. And even if I lost everything I wouldn't hesitate at all in saying I would do it all again. Because who cares about all those things anyway. I learned a long time ago that things don't make me happy people make me happy. Last summer at this time son number two and I were cycling down highway 1 in California, we had so much fun. I have lived a life of hundreds of excellent adventures with some of the funnest funniest people you could ever want to hang with. Having a family just gives you this built in crew to have fun with. Sure there is some pain but most of it is pretty amazing. And BTW if it sounds to good to be true ask TranceG he's met my family twice on our adventures and he can tell you it's for real.

I'm a childfree Christian, which obviously makes my chances of finding a mate quite slim, but yes, my reading up on Feminism and its effects on our culture and justice system hasn't helped either.

So because it MIGHT work, its cool?

Use this kind of thinking with another venture that involves the same amount of time, capital and emotional investment and I guarantee you'd say no to it.

I'm not saying marriage is definitely bad but the fact of the matter is that for a very large portion of the population it just doesn't work out. Its not for everyone and that's very apparent. I'm not getting involved because I don't see it being worth it financially, emotionally, mentally or time-wise. It just doesn't click.

I'm glad you enjoyed your marriage and your kids. I really do. But understand that your case is becoming far and in between more often than not. There's a reason people make marriage jokes just before someone gets married and why so many people get a case of cold feet beforehand.

Naw dude. Women want a wedding. Men want a marriage. The problem is that modern american females do not view marriages the same way as men. Men want a wife not a co-worker.

I have been saying this for a long time that the real battle isn't stopping gays from marrying it's the big decline in the numbers of straight men that don't want to get married and the alarming number of couples who don't want to have children. I think that society needs to even out the marriage laws to make it more encouraging to men but also to encourage couples to know the happiness that is possible from having a family.

When I think back over the past 10 years of arguing over gay marriage and then how few brahs on here both left and right are not even considering a family in the foreseeable future. That is a big problem for society and I think it is a big problem for young people today that really don't understand how great having a family can be. And if there is all this negative views on having a family how do we change that?

True. I think that overall laws for what happens if a marriage breaks up is the biggest deterrent to males getting married. Males know that basically unless their wife is caught on video cheating with a gun wielding felon while smoking crack, she's going to get the kids and rip him a new ass financially.
