I'd be more curious to know what makes a woman husband material.

Tenderheartedness, diligence, friendliness, the ability to have tacit understanding with you, the ability to have common ideals and concepts with you, the ability to cooperate with you wholeheartedly, sharing your independent thinking and analysis as well as the ability to respect your privacy, though you do have to respect her privacy too.

It's a cross between good mental health and independence. Anything else is subjective but she has to not have too much crazy and be able to take care of herself for the most part. It's always nice to spoil your girl but if she can't carry her weight the relationship will inevitably fail.

Such materials only exist in legends and the imaginations of men (assuming traditional notion of the context). As such, the interpretation of the materials is lost thru translations and can become quite inconsistent. If Ernesti Echevalier (Knight's and Magic) were to answer the question, he would probably say...if the subject is like Silhouette Knights, it would be the perfect material.

To determine if she is made of wife material we need to discern what materials wives are made of. While I have never disassembled a wife I would speculate she would be made of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorous with trace amounts of potassium, sulfur, sodium, chlorine, magnesium and other elements.

Nothing. Getting married only causes problems later on. So I don't want to marry any girl.

Marriage is a shallow institution.
Too many people spend copious amounts of money to have an extravagant wedding, which is completely superficial.
Marriage, more or less, is designed for tax breaks and easier management of the estate upon death.


lmao, the institution of marriage which is by definition devoting your entire life to another person is shallow? Its only shallow nowadays because nobody takes it seriously and cheats or get divorced for stupid reasons.

When you find someone you truly love and would do anything for, spending alot of money on a ceremony that reflects that is important to the individual. It shows how much you value the decision you made to devote and spend your entire life with them. It adds more weight and gives you amazing memories with the person you found as a lifetime partner. The catch is it is suppose to be a once in a lifetime deal. Sad that its more likely to not be nowadays.

You think that the institution of marriage was designed for tax breaks and to make sure someone is there to get your stuff when u die? Wow, seriously? Do u really think this? Or do your views only exist to be edgy or "cool" because you dont agree with the "norm"? Im starting to suspect the latter because that is one of the most ignorant things I have ever heard.

Bzzt! Sorry, now that you've also brought back the Necro-posting, I'm afraid that's exceeded your One-Shtick Trademark Quota limit for the month--

You'll have to either give up one, or cut back on the Faux-Fredreload dumb bombs, house rules, you know....

I would greatly suggest you brush up on your vocabulary.


Marriage -noun | mar-riage | \ ˈmer-ij , ˈma-rij \
the state of being united as spouses in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law.


Marriage has always been a civil institution at its core.
It wasn't until the 12th century that marriage was fully recognized as a religious institution that was sanctioned as a sacrament.
It is a rather shallow statement to require the validation of your believed deity or your friends and family to make a commitment to one another.
You, yourself, admitted it was shallow by indicating that it "adds more weight" to a relationship.
The hypothetical weight is merely a superficial element that you place on a relationship because you've held a ceremony that has next to little objective meaning.

Filing taxes together can either be beneficial or harmful as a married couple.
This depends on both of your financial state (income, bills, and so forth).
It is also beneficial when your spouse (or yourself) passes away as it gives them legal precedence over your estate, even in light of surviving family members.
There is also the aspect which allows you or your spouse to relocate your spouse's home country (if different than your own) under a spousal visa.
These are objective observations of marriage.

There is not any implication of being "edgy".
These statements are facts.
Marriage is not required to devout one's life to the relationship they are currently in.
Nor is it required to obtain "amazing memories" as these can be obtained through experience.
It is true that divorce has increased overall in the last fifty years, as people have learned that relationships are fluid and there aren't any social requirements to stay in a relationship when you are unsatisfied.
Though, the idea of monogamy in marriage was not always there either.
It was the Greeks and Romans that indicated that monogamy was required as you could only have one spouse at a time.
Other civilizations allowed for males of the upper social echelons to have multiple wives while married.

It appears that most of your reasons to believe that marriage is more than "filing taxes together and ease of estate management upon you or your spouse's death" are primarily based on either the possibility that you are currently married or have an inclination towards being married.
Which really doesn't hold much ground in the discussion, to be frank.

If you can spend everyday with a person and still enjoy it then MAYBE marry them. Otherwise marriage is a fast track to problems later on.
