I just personally find marriage to be a raw deal regardless of who it is you marry. When you have an anti-male, anti-father legal system, and then you see the vast number of divorced and unhappily unmarried couples...I could care less if the woman was an angel sent from heaven.
If she believes that "eternal love" can only be legitimized by the authority of the state, then I am running for the hills.
I actually don't disagree with you. Western marriage is largely an institution that benefits women and is a losing bet for men, statistically speaking. As long as men go into it being fully aware of the implications and limitations, a lot of pitfalls can be averted.
I think if you want have kids, this is best done within marriage. Single parents can raise good kids, but it is much better to raise kids in a loving family with mom AND dad.
The problem I have is when guys say it is always bad, or having a gf is never a good idea...this is just dumb. These things aren't bad in and of themselves, just in relation to the people being considered.
