    Do both.

    You appreciate being single so much more after being married

    My wife and I are a team.

    I couldn't imagine doing anything without her. We are 20+ years strong.

    I appreciate my marriage, we appreciate it together.

    Much more than being single.

    You won't know what true happiness is until you get married and then it is to late.

    Depends on person. If your young marriage and if you want kids. Single you have more control of your life.

    Single until mid 30s then lock it down and grow up. Going out to the clubs/ bars until 1am+ gets old real fast once you’ve done it for 20 years

    Exactly, then you can just use lefty and PH, or make the booty call to your go to chick, If you're in your 20's and 30's my advice is stay single do you, freedom is an amazing thing.

    You will never hear an old timer telling young guys to get married.

    They always say avoid it at all costs.

    That pretty much tells you everything you need to know about marriage.

    ........ every married guy I know is a straight bitch, asks their wife permission to do simple shit.

    If you want to have an awesome life and ride motorcycles and hump 20 year old girls and do whatever you want, do not get married.

    You can string them along a little bit and maybe buy them the engagement ring.

    If the chick isn't too bright maybe even throw her a wedding, but just do not actually sign the marriage certificate. You're signing your life away

    Marriage just a contract between two people that allows one of them to take half your shit whenever things go bad

    KVB’s situation with his lovely wife is the exception to the rule. I tend to agree with most guys in here that marriage turns into a bad situation usually & you lose half your shit. I’m a man who was married for 10 years & have been divorced for 5. I won’t ever marry a broad based on faith again, I’d have to endure what KVB has for damn near a decade & only then I would consider it. By that time I will probably have been extremely tired of the same pussy for that long, but I’m not shitting on KVB’s parade I envy what he has, but it’s almost impossible to find especially in today’s world.

    Agree with pretty much everyone in here

    I was single until I was 30, and been married over 10 years now

    Loved being single, love being married

    And two daughters that make getting old worth the process

    I wouldn't personally want my life to be any different

    getting married GREAT for women due to financial gain.

    getting married BAD for men due to financial loss.

    one ONE GOOD REASON imo for a man to get married - that is if he wants to start a family.

    the PRICE of having children (greatest thing in my life) is A WIFE.

    If you marry the right one, being married is better.

    If you marry the wrong one, being single is better.

    Single guys tend to tell themselves being single is better because they wish they were married. Married guys tend to tell themselves being single is better because they wish they were single. But married guys always wind up getting married again and usually a lot of times.

    if my wife throws me out i will NOT marry again I am 98.88888% sure of it.

    the new Bytch will take all the money i am accumulating.

    the only way i get married again if my wife throws me out, is if i cannot keep reliable and dependable pvssy with me and i am getting too old to wipe my own azzzzzz

    then i go FULL PRENUP and it will be with a Bytch who has her own money, own job, own kids, and is not dependent on me.

    so i just came up with another good reason to get married - so you have someone to WIPE your AXXXX when you are old and unable.

    then again you could always hire a pretty filipina nurse for that, maybe even a vietnamese one, but they usually have a lot of brains backing them and will find a way to fleece you when you are old and unable to fend for yourself

    Best to get married when young, optimistic, have not accumulated much wealth yet, and exuberant enough to really enjoy time with your kids.

    The longer you leave it, the harder work the changes are to deal with I think.


    I liked being married for the fist half of my life. And I like being a bachelor in my 50s as well.

    I often say I would have preferred to have had it work out so I stayed married for life, but being single after all your life as a husband/father honestly feels like being on holidays 24/7. I never experienced being able to choose to do what i want without having to think about others first all my adult life before divorce. Freedom is intoxicating now.

    Everything gets made right if you find the right one.

    those were obviously rebounds then and sorry to judge these two guys but that is mentally and financially weak unless they had very clear prenups before the next two marriages.

    can you check in w/ them and give us updates on how marriages number two are going ??

    It does depend on the person.For me being married was a easy choice because i always hated being single but said i would never marry a person who was a ballbreaker. My wife and i have been married for 30 years,we take separate vacations and vacations together and dont have to bee together 24/7 like my friend from high school she has him tied with a rope because of this have not seen him for 20 years were only friends on facebook now!

    These guys fell head over heels. They weren't rebounds exactly. They did pretty well for themselves. If a guy can do pretty well, he will get married.

    One guy I think is still married. The other one got divorced. He married a girl 17 years younger and she dumped him for an even older guy that went trans. He went from bad to worse. The guy had no business getting married either time and he has 5 kids now. I don't think he is getting married again but you never know.

    Only reason for a legal marriage is kids

    If no kids, don't waste the time or money getting tied up financially. It's just a piece of paper.

    The church doesn't have any power, your wife isn't going to be a virgin, you weren't her first choice on E Harmony, no other guy she had a one night's with put a ring on it, why should you?
