    Well, there are different things that come into play.

    1. Alot of Men don't deserve to get married with how their attitudes are.
    2. It cost alot of $$$ and we are in a recession.
    3. A woman can just dump her man and go with some guy who is rich, or who has a huge dick.
    4. With modern relationship ethics, it's rare to find something that would work.

    Would YOU want to marry a woman who would be likely to leave you for another man because he is better in a way and then get fucked in divorce court? I wouldn't.
    Or would YOU want a man who would cheat on you and/or beat you and doesn't give the respect and loyalty you deserve? I wouldn't.



    It's just easy to go get a fuck buddy, get off, and be happy for a few days.

    I agree with everything you said except the first one, you think womens attitudes are better than mens and they deserve to be married, but men don't? I have spent alot of time with women in their 20's recently and I can tell you there is not much difference, and in fact their attitude is worse than men in some ways.

    It seems today that Gays want to get married more than Straights do!

    I've been married twice and my wife three times. I always joke that my wife's first two husbands "died mysteriously". :D

    If my wife and I were to divorce or she were to pass away I'm sure I'd get married again someday. Just seems the natural "state of being" for me.

    Clearly this is the effect of the Gay/Lesbian Agenda and the failure of the New Right to defend traditional marriage by outlawing GLBT relationships. Once our Constitution is amended to define marriage as only the union of one man and one woman it will go far in making sure traditional marriage is protected.

    Well, maybe not clearly; the rights of others to enjoy the benefits of marriage has nothing to do with the news in the OP, though I have no doubt the loud and proud members of the New Right 'think' so.

    Thats probably one of those things where they want it so bad because its something they have never had before, one gay marriage is legal across the board they will start to see the problems us hetero folks deal with.

    Eh... I don't know... Not everyone fits into those ideologies/categories. I have been married for close to 14 years and though the first 10 were pretty rough... I couldn't imagine another way of life. I am the kind of person that would be with someone regardless of being married... so I'd best stay married. :lol: Most everything in life, IMO, is better with a partner than without. :D There are very few ways I'd prefer to be independent of my man, even and especially as he is.

    Perhaps, but I've only noticed men who behave badly.
    Occasionally the few whores, but they end up isolated from everyone.

    Marriage levels are known to fluctuate based on the economics of the time.

    We saw a major drop during the Great Depression and again during the Carter Era recession. Granted some of it is due to changing paradigms but again even that is a fluctuating statistic.
