KiwDaWabbit: WhippingBoy: If you're so awesome, how come you need to attention-troll the internets?

I'm not trying to white knight at all, but from what I have seen from you in these types of threads, you're projecting big time.


Yeah, I imagine I am...

umad: kiwimoogle84:A man doesn't get a life companion, homecooked meals, activity partner, and consistent sex? Not to mention someone to lean on when times are rough and someone to build them up?

Dear god, you're right. Marriage is AWFUL for men.

You can do all of that without getting married. Why buy the cow...


Here's a CSB to explain why...

My first husband died in a motorcycle wreck just weeks after we were married. Had we not been married, I would have had absolutely no way of paying the mortgage on the house we bought together. As it was, his parents were trying to scream that since he died without a will, they got half of his life insurance (which, believe me, wasn't much). Had we not been married, I would have been left with absolutely nothing since I wouldn't be considered legally next of kin.

So yes, it's a financial decision, but it's a promise to support one another. A lot of women take this for granted, and that's unfortunate, but just because it's not FOR YOU, that doesn't mean that it's awful for EVERYONE to do. There's a lot of really happy people in long term marriages.

taurusowner: This. In the end, Dating, Marriage, etc are all just prostitution. You can't trade sex for money, but women can and do trade it for everything else.


The problem with marriage is at some point women can stop delivering the sex and you're still married.

At least with prostitution when the sex stops so does the expense.

kiwimoogle84: Sorry you couldn't find a decent woman. That blows, but marriage ain't a death trap. Seriously.


You sound like you are either single, or not married very long.

So men should get married because it is too much work to set up a will? Besides, you don't need to convince me that it is a good deal for you. I know it is. It just isn't a good deal for your husband.

Your increasingly desperate arguments tell me that you know this and are worried that he will realize it too.

I never said it is awful for EVERYONE to do, just men.

Neither. I'm in an extremely happy relationship, and I was married once five years ago. Still would be if life hadn't come around and screwed me. I just know what it takes to make a relationship work. Mr. Kiwi says to me all the time he's not used to not having to pull the weight of two people, and it's nice. I'm going, ALL women should pay their own bills and be reasonable. It's sad that they're not.

And umad, fine. Have it your way.

With every farker claiming marriage is a raw deal for men, can one of you tell me the benefit of marriage to a woman?

Difficulty:  Woman has a good job and no need of someone else's money.

Besides free money, it gives you the power to use the government as a weapon to ruin the life of your ex.

Spider killer- yes. Also, see my other response upthread. Mutual security. Health insurance benefits. (my insurance benefits have ALWAYS been better than my mister's since I work in the healthcare field) Legal rights. And a shallow response? Every woman wants a fairytale wedding. The trouble for MOST women is they want the wedding, not the marriage.

And sometimes guys want financial security too. Two incomes, one home = better security for both parties.

Bottom line, it's about building a life together for both people. I ALWAYS have someone to play Magic with! You can't put a price tag on that.

But Kiwi, as so many Farkers have already pointed out, we're nothing but money grubbing life suckers! Why should things like playing League and Magic together matter if there is no money to be had? WHAR'S MY PAYDAY?!?! WHAR?!?!?

/I would swear reading your posts you'd be my sister from another mister. It sucks being so apologetic for my gender, but man is it difficult finding like minded women who aren't out to screw people over.

Oh, you've got me all wrong. I was kidding. I'm off work now and headed to the bank to withdraw my mister's life savings so I can blow it ALLLLL on a new Louis Vuitton purse and matching chihuahua. And then when I'm done with that, I'm going to ask him 19 times if I'm pretty/fat, accuse him of cheating on me, and then wreck his car in a DUI. Then since that's not enough, I'll blame the bruises from the car wreck on him battering me and have his wages garnished for life to pay for my alimony and court costs.

Don't forget to squeeze out a couple kids you really don't want but need just to get even more money and get them to tells lies about their daddy or to use as leverage when he doesn't give you what you want.

kiwimoogle84: umad: kiwimoogle84: fzumrk: Don't forget the biggest romance scam of them all:  marriage.

Ah, you guys.

Sorry you couldn't find a decent woman. That blows, but marriage ain't a death trap. Seriously.

You sound female.

And a five star wife. My man is HAPPY.

There's good women out there. Truly. So many guys are so focused on a woman's appearance, they're constantly getting screwed by pretty women who offer little else.

Find the gamer chick with a college degree who is maybe carrying 20 extra pounds. I promise, you'll be infinitely happier than with a supermodel, and the sex will be a thousand times better.


Until she turns that into 70 extra and decides to stop having sex with you because she doesn't find you attractive anymore, even though you look the same as when the two of you met.

Turns out different people are different.
