Why Go Back?

This is a special message to all the guys out there who were raised in single-parent homes by your moms.
That's not a big group...Thanks to feminStaazi, that's a HUGE group. Our next qualifier is, are you about to marry or are you engaged? If the answer is yes, please pay very close attention to what you are about to read:
Remember "that time of the month" when you were little? Remember getting yelled at or beat down or worse every time you turned around? Remember being bitched out for daring to think for yourself, speak your mind or attempting to do normal kid things like a lemonade stand or a paper route? I know there are quite a few of you for whom "that time of the month" was every fucking day of your life! The purpose of this message is to keep you from going back to that. You deserve better!
That's why Galt-in-Da-Box is begging you please, pretty please...With sugar on it even: STAY SINGLE, STAY FREE.
That old song has too much genetic truth to it; the one that goes "I want a girl, just like the girl that married dear old dad." Why do you think dad bailed? Let you in on a little secret: it WASN'T you. Mom fed you that bullshit to cover her broadening ass, and if you use a head other than the one on your shoulders without a spooge-luge, you'll end up the same place he did.
Sorry, but it's a fact.
The few of you who had mothers that built you up instead of tearing you down can completely ignore this message. In almost every circumstance, you're on the right track and have every reason to expect great things ahead. Most of you aren't that lucky, and you know it, especially if you remember some of the endless weekends and summers I still wake up in the middle of the night about sometimes. You can't undo the past, but you can keep it from becoming your future, and just about every benefit of marriage is available for less without it.
Since you don't have to, why go back to that?

Too many people have been brainwashed into thinking that marriage is a religious thing, even though it involves entering into a legally binding government contract.

Before the gubmint got involved, it was, indeed, something done in the church, between a man and a woman. There was no legal contract, just the couple having a church ceremony and reciting vows to each other.

It has metamorphosed into something completely different that has big government written all over it. If you want to spend the rest of your life with your significant other, why in the world do you need the government to endorse it with a goddamned license??

If you like being falsely accused and manipulated 24/7/365, marriage is definately for you!
If OTOH, you are sane, it isn't...Period.
I still marvel at the "men" who are willing to put up with/attempt a lifetime of subjugation for nothing more than the empty promise of always having a warm, wet place to stick it.

Jason makes some good points, even to someone that has been lucky enough not to get burned in the marriage game, yet anyway.

But there are a lot of guys out there on the fence that should certainly read this post.

Jeez guys...

I've been married for 38 years to a good woman.

They're out there, just damned hard to find.

Bob,
Congrats: You found a virtuous woman. They are few and far between. You probably came from a good home with two fine parents as well, and thus knew what to shop for.
For millions of young American men today, such is not the case, hence the pussification of the nation continues...
Just saying.
