Happily divorced for 20 years and in a happy marriage free relationship with a fellow happy divorce for the last year. Marriage is highly overrated. That's why I have always been for gey marriage. Why should heteros be the only ones to suffer lmao


Honestly don't understand the point of going through a "marriage" ritual. If two people love each other, what's the point of getting piece of paper for it except to f**k the guys over?

To be honest there are some cases where it makes sence like when someone's jobs health insurance only covers a spouce, or if you have joint property that you built together over the years... But, yes 98% of marriages end in divorce. I was one and never again, my partner is 3 times divorced. I tease her now and then about, "the definition of insanity is repeating the same action and expecting different results". Lmao

Disgracefully you're right, society makes people superficial with their beauty and life standards and status but everything it'd depend on you tho. If you're looking just to have a good time obviously you'd find a lot of options but if you're looking for an stable couple suppose you need to be more picky and selective.

Look at the misogynist we got here.

I've been happily married for 11 years. But everyone is different and marriage isn't always in the cards. I'm not going to knock someone who decides to be alone so don't act snotty towards those who desires marriage.

We all have different goals and ambitions. I have several older friends in their 60's who are single, never married and super happy with life. Some are divorced with kids, and others like me who are happily married and feel like we won the comic lottery.

Hmm. I will probably stay single for a long time. I've given up on finding decent people. Doesn't really matter to me so much if its a girl or a guy but between both options I haven't found someone worth my time. I used to date a lot more in the past and even ended up in a really committed relationship only to have it be the worst decision I've ever made.

I think I would like to get married one day and have it work out but I'll have to be a lot luckier than I have been so far.

I'll eventually get married sometime in my lifetime. But as of right now, that's a different story. I'm nowhere near ready for commitment. I still have school to finish and I see no one as a potential right now.

Single, I already came to terms with it, for better or worse. After a few failed relationships I guess I got burnt out.
I pretty much live a life running between my university auditing courses of interest, working, martial arts, doing stuff with family and friends and traveling. When you are as busy as I am, well it's doesn't bother you as much, I suppose.


To comment on all the guys mentioning marriage. Prenubs are a waste of time unless you have assets/wealth to protect prior to getting married and your spouse has none and you don't want to get taken to the cleaners in case of a divorce.

I absolutely hate it when people throw slurs like misogynist, misandrist, racist, ect around like monkeys flinging shit. It cheapens the impact those terms deserve. He might be a bit biased but to say he was misogynist?
According to marrion Webster:
Definition of misogyny
: a hatred of women

Distrustful or biased maybe, jaded definitely. Hatred? Nope. Therefore you cheapen the word by using it as a slur. Kinda like how people throw Natzie around every time they don't agree with another person's view.

Actually with Obamacare, if you are low income it is financially stupid to get married. Here is what I mean: if you have an employer who will only cover you and not the rest of your family, you become ineligible for subsidies on the federal exchange. You are better off not being legally married so that you partner can still qualified for cheaper insurance.

Sometimes I wonder if the tax code is intentionally written to punish married people and families or something....

I agree. These days there are fewer and fewer cases where it makes financial or legal sence to enter into a government sanctioned marriage.
This is why I have always been a strong advocate for gay marriage. Why should only heteros have that inflicted on us. Lmao
