Sergeant Grumbles: Last Man on Earth: I think that's a somewhat narrow view. With society's current divorce rate, someone not recognizing that divorce is at least a possibility is kind of fooling themselves. Doesn't mean you think it's likely, or that you can see things that would lead to it. Knowing you love someone is perfectly reasonable, knowing for a fact how you'll feel in 20 years is fortune telling.

I just don't think the fear of a marriage not working out in 20 years is stalling the marriage rate that significantly. That could very well be what it driving the divorce rate, but counting on a divorce in 20 years would also be fortune telling.
You see what I'm saying? No one gets married thinking they'll get divorced? So a fear of divorce might provide more thought to the decision to get married, but it's not actually stopping marriage from happening.


Oh, of course, makes sense.  When you said "If you're hesitant about marriage because you're worried about divorce, you're not dating the right girl, and your relationship is in no shape to survive a marriage," I thought you meant you shouldn't get married if you'd considered divorce as a possible outcome.  I'd argue that a good marriage can keep that possibility in mind going in, but deciding that the way you feel about each other makes it worth the risk.

Mike Chewbacca: Don't think of divorce as society failing to uphold America's tradition of long marriages, think of it as Americans now having the freedom to escape bad situations


That's exactly how I think of it.  My parents got divorced when I was a child, and one of the reasons they didn't follow the "stick together for the sake of the children" approach is because they didn't want us kids to think that's what a marriage is supposed to be like.  They've since both happily remarried to great people, and they get along much better than they did when they were married.  As a result, I don't view divorce as at all a bad thing.  It's unfortunate that circumstances made it necessary, yes, but if it can lead to increased happiness for the divorcing couple, it's absolutely a good thing.

This is a simple answer to a stupid question. When I get home from work I want to sit on the couch, watch tv, and drink beer. When I have been engaged (2 times in the last 10 years) I was able to do that maybe once a week. When I am just dating or single. That changes to 4-5 nights a week. I can get all the house shiat done the other days.

Well, to be fair, we'd both gone through a number of lonely years and had both started to think we'd never find someone. And then we did. It's much easier to appreciate someone when you remember so vividly how lonely you were. We've been together for more than 8 years now, and married for 5.5 years, and not only are we still not sick of each other, we still love to be in each other's company.

My mom stayed with my dad because my oldest brother's mom abandoned him, and my mom didn't want him to have another mommy abandon him. I didn't find that little factoid out until last year. He's 14 years old than me and 10 years older than my other brother. She told me she'd wanted to leave my dad since before her own kids were born, but she just couldn't abandon Jeff like that. So, that's why I don't hold her affair against her. She already sacrificed so much, for a kid that wasn't even hers.

I can't get legally married to the person of my choosing in this state, but if I could I'm not sure I would.  Marriage is a very sacred vow, it's not something you should take lightly.  There are a lot of considerations and compromises you have to make.  Like figuring out how to get divorced before 36 hours is up, or trying to figure out if your fourth wife is 18 or not, or whether you should leave your husband before he gets sick so that you can collect 50% of his pre-medical payout net worth.

That's my other complaint.  Women use pictures that are 10 years and 50 pounds old.  I guess my mistake was using a picture less than a year old.

Another complaint.  If you are fat, you aren't curvy, biatch.  Body sizes are the second most lied about aspect (after age) in dating profiles.

You liberals aren't going to convince her she's wrong using rational arguments.  You need to use her own logic against her.  Try the following:

"I might agree that a man should be obligated to provide for his family... but only if it's equally mandatory for women to remain thin and pretty and never disagree with a man.  What do you think?"

She can't agree to those conditions, being a quarrelsome hambeast, but she can't disagree without pointing out flaws in the "traditional" family arrangement.

Bingo, more or less. The thing is, the observation also applies to women - no longer do women have to depend on a man to provide personal financial & social stability, either. To me, what we're seeing is a natural, evolutionary process - as individuals are expected to be more self-sufficient, there is less need to pair-bond for mutual survival. Add to that the increased pressure of professional life and the marked increase in materialism, and you get a reluctance to spend time and money on someone other than yourself. To all of that, add increased awareness and acceptance of birth control, and what you get is a generation of men and women with a wider array of options, focused less on "the family" and more on "the individual." They can choose not to marry and still be financially & socially stable. They can choose not to have children and be even more useful to a world already overburdened by population issues.

Not to mention the politics that comes from 'family.'  That word has been co-opted by a bunch of sexually repressed white supremist Christian fundies who want to control the world.  You know why that pathetic shell of a human being is throwing a hissy fit?  Because she believed she didn't have a choice, and now she believes she can't have the freedoms that the rest of us do, therefore in her tiny mind she has to biatch and whine about it instead of living her life.  Everything that she believes in has made her the sad sack of shiat that she is today, and now she wonders why people don't go for it blindly??

The one flaw that a lot of Americans of every stripe have is that they think the population is completely stupid.  We're not all rocket scientists, granted.  But you don't need to be one to see something that won't work for you.  And the last thing we want to be is some hateful and spiteful Christian fundie bleating about how the world is supposed to be in their tiny little world.  We have more important things to do.  Like live our lives so we don't end up scanning a Bible to find justification to why we hate our lives like this woman here.
 
2013-11-06 09:48:14 PM

hobberwickey: Maybe it's because the institution of marriage actually only works, or is even desirable for a much smaller percentage of the population than have in the past gotten married because the social pressure to do so is waining in light of the fact that we don't need kids to work on the farm anymore, and our parents having been through terrible marriages themselves aren't pushing as hard to see their kids married.

Kids are great, marriage is great for SOME people, maybe even MOST people, but it's not the only course successful relationships can take. People are finally feeling free to explore those alternatives. Yes, yes, I know this has all been tried before (it's called the 60's) and probably there's no significant difference between now and then except that it's been tried before. This is how things change; progress is made, there's pushback, then things get tried again, then there's pushback, but history tends towards progress. Yes, less people getting married is progress.

Yeah, it's a pretty safe bet that if you go into a marriage assuming it'll fail, it'll fail.

So how do you not assume it will fail if so many of the examples you've seen end up that way? You could keep telling yourself it'll work, but you won't really believe it.


You don't look at it is a binary state. You take a look at the examples you've seen and why they ended up that way. Hell, if your parents are anything like mine (previous marriages before I was born), they might even be happy to TELL you why and how they failed.

Wages have been stagnant for decades, it seems likely that America's decline will continue indefinitely, and kids are expensive. Why the hell would anyone have children?

Looks like all the reasons have been pretty much covered.  When people ask why i don't have kids yet, i always say "That's step three.  Step one is finding a reasonably attractive, sane, responsible woman who only wants to have sex with me for the rest of her life.  Step two is having enough money to always feel secure.  I'm still working on those first two steps."

Sometimes i listen to Michael Savage for the Lulz, and he paints this picture of his parents' generation that is supposed to sound bootstrappy, but just sounds horrible instead.  "Our parents were uneducated and mean, and they abandoned every hope and dream they ever had, and worked horrible, dirty, soul-crushing jobs for 80 hours a week, and smoked and drank until they looked twice as old as they were, all to support me and my five siblings!  They were real men and real women, not like these kids today!"

I'm surprised no one's brought up the fact that you can have an awesome marriage that includes porn, beer, video games, and fleeting sexual encounters.  Of course I don't opt for the last option as I have no desire to, but the others are just a normal/fun part of marriage.  Granted we don't have kids and don't intend to ever have them, but just because you get married doesn't mean you have to forego fun - at least you don't if you enjoy each other's company.  Marriage doesn't have to be a solemn death march to boring jailtown.

doglover: More like they want to get married and settle down with a girl, but you can't do that on the modern super low slave wage corporations spit out so just like Japan no one can afford to get married for reals.


And there it is. Economics rules EVERYTHING. You fark the little guy to death, he'll die. So enjoy the perceived gains at the expense of the future. Even a successful parasite knows not to kill the host.

JesusJuice: Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?


shut up caboose...

theknuckler_33: ladodger34: I was 30 when I got married and my wife was 27. I think 30 was a good age. The porn, beer, and video games sounds like my 20s and I had a great time. I think having some fun before I got married has made me a better husband and dad.

This. I was 32, my wife was 28. We have 1 child, a daughter, she's 11 now.

/my lawn, etc.


i dunno, i think it's great that, as brought up in the article, after well over 20 years of "settled life", my 60 y/o uncle can finally get married...

Heh. What are your odds of getting laid by one of your motorcycles tonight or getting a smile out of your paid-for house simply because it loves you?


I think he has more of a chanced then a married man who's wife isn't in the mood. Which I believe is one of the biggest reason a lot of marriages fail, sexual incompatibility. In the early years it's usually the woman who doesn't want to have sex, or doesn't want to have sex often enough, then as it progresses the man's libido often slows and the woman's raises leaving her high and dry. I know sex isn't the only reason behind marriage, but it's a thing that most people do require to feel fulfilled, and if the only person you are contracted to have sex with won't do it, the only options you have are cheating or being miserable.

/side note, I see why she hates the gays, I think I'd rather have sex with a man then a woman that looks like that.
