I'm sure there are a couple of guys here with great marriages, and great for you, but about 50% of marriages end in divorce, 2/3 of them are initiated by women where they usually get the kids and property. And this doesn't mean the other 50% are having happy marriages either, their spouse could also die, get a debilitating disease, get fat, or maybe they stay together for the kids but hate their marriage, etc. A very small percent of them are probably happily married. I saw my parents go through a bitter divorce and destroy each other, and literally almost all my friends have broken homes, with either a divorce, dead parent, parents who fight all day, or who refuse to get a divorce because of religion or traditions. I'm 19 btw, I don't ever see myself getting married. I just don't understand why guys want to do this to themselves. Maybe I'll understand as I get older? Thoughts?
