Message Subject Young men giving up on marriage: ‘Women aren’t women anymore’
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward

Here's an honest question:

If a woman is in a situation where she
1) works full time
2) is the primary caretaker for the kids
3) does all the domestic duties around the house, too

Then honestly, why SHOULD she be married rather than choose single motherhood?

Seriously, forget the religious fundie/biblical arguments and use logic for a minute.

If she can financially support herself, and the man isn't doing the cleaning or helping with the caretaking, and she's pretty much assuming all responsibilities anyway, why not just choose to be a single mother?

A lot of women don't enjoy sex anywhere near as much as men, so that annoying obligation is out of the way.

So many marriages are dysfunctional, that friends and family are a better source of emotional intimacy than a spouse. Especially after reading this thread, it seems like most men have serious issues that aren't worth the trouble of a woman dealing with.

Most women outlive men, and marriage is no guarantee the guy won't leave her for a younger woman in a few years anyway-- so she's likely to end up alone whether or not she marries.

Honestly, short of finding that very rare situation where a spouse is genuinely a wonderful person to spend life with, there is really no advantage to being married-- and many added stresses and disadvantages.

So why not choose to do it alone?

Anyone has the ability to do it alone, it isn't mandatory to marry and have children.
My mom did her best raising me, but there was a big hole that will always be there because I never had a connection with my biological father.

That seems to be the situation for most children, whether they started out with married parents or not.

True, I was six months old when she left him. He eventually settled down and he was a father to his non-biological children, not us.

Look around, do you see any good men? Do you even know one?

I thought my uncle and his friend were good men, then they confessed to me that ALL men cheat. Their words, not mine. They were trying to help and they did, but not how they thought.

These two, the only good men I knew, cheated on their wives and not just once.

Now that I understand, I'm okay with it. I will never date again, but I am okay with that, too.
