Hmm two people who agree with me. I should buy a lottery ticket while my luck holds.

Probably not a bad idea. Hell, I also agree with you in this matter.

I can't cast any stones though, given that I'm far too cantankerous for marriage and honestly prefer being a bachelor.

while most of this rings true, you'd better be one suave mofo if you're going to be able to get her to be cool with a prenup. nothing tells a girl "I dont think we're going to make the long haul" like the suggestion of a prenup.

but this is a double edged sword, because a lot of women marry for the power game. if they're your girlfriend, they dont have anywhere near the say as when they legally own half your shit. that may sound harsh but its the truth. (come to think of it, a lot of the truth is very harsh)



before considering getting married, I'd say ask why. if you're planning on kids and such, that's a good reason.

but the thing is, the government has no business being in marriage in the first place - this is just so they can keep a better count on their cattle herd.


I was lucky with my divorce, it only cost me about 400 bucks. People change, sometimes they change so drastically you just about dont know them anymore - but when that's the case, its most often that they've merely kept this rotten portion of themselves hidden from you.


you can only hide your true self so long before it comes out

I could care less. These numbers aren't necessarily a bad thing. Back in the day it was nearly impossible for a woman to get a divorce from a man even if he abused her. Nowaday's people are free to fall in and out of love or change their mind. Doesn't effect me either way.

It's amazing what strong feelings you can have about other people getting divorced and married three or four times in a row. You hear about these divorce statistics, and you see your friends and family getting married and divorced within two or three years, and it can plant a seed of destruction in you. You could start sabotaging your own relationships because you have been told and have seen that relationships don't work.

Marriage isn't for the faint of heart.

There are many things that factor into the demise of a marriage, probably the largest contributor is the lack of money. Worrying about how you're paying the bills will kill a relationship quickly.

Both of you have to work to keep the relationship going - if one drops out, the odds are poor that you'll stay together.

Always keep working on the common ground that got you together in the first place - if you have nothing in common, why are you even with her/him?

TALK with each other, and try to work out any differences of opinion before you go to sleep.

Men - no matter what it was you did, you were wrong. Deal with it.

Women - no, he hasn't a clue what he did. He wouldn't even if you explained it.

Most importantly, respect and support each other.

I don't really see anything wrong with divorce, at least until it affects any children that may have come from the union.

It's sad when people fall out of love, but in my family, I have known too many couples who stuck together out of marital duty and convenience who hate each other and have been unhappy for years. One can say young people are fickle, love 'em and leave 'em, but I'd be happier with a string of short but pleasant marriages than spending thirty years in a loveless one.

Especially if you're communicative with your partner, honest about the direction the relationship is going in. When you can split amicably with your partner, things like custody are much easier to resolve than when hurt feelings are involved. Don't let a lack of love or lust drive you to cheating without a conversation, or your partner will feel bitter about the infidelity and fight for more of your property or the children.

If you're not mature enough to have that kind of conversation, though, perhaps you shouldn't be getting married.

Beware the leeches. Too many women are simply that.
