Marry Me-- A Mad Man's Rant About The Ultimate Commitment

Earlier I was browsing blogs and I saw this.

Some of his points were valid. Getting married won't take away from the problems that are already there. If people want to just have sex then there is no point for marriage.

However, most people don't get married because they think their problems will go away. They also don't get married with the idea of signing a contract in mind. When people marry with the idea of signing contracts, they usually get divorced five minutes later because they weren't ready. Marriage is also not just about the money. Well, for some it's about the money, but for others it's about spending the rest of their life with the one they love. Love triumphs the thought of how money is being spent.

 "Women are going to defend marriage til they die, generation after generation, because it benefits women. That’s y’all day."

This is not true. Well, I am defending marriage, but I know that marriage is as important to women as it is to men. Men are the ones who eventually propose. Men are the ones who decide that they've met the woman they want to spend the rest of their lives with

"Why do you want to get married? How is it gonna benefit you and your boyfriend or girlfriend? We are expected to be committed and faithful before we get married. All the same demands are there before we get married."

 The way I see it is if a man wants dinner on the table every night for the rest of his life he'll put a ring on it. If a man wants good sex, not okay sex, he'll put a ring on it. If a man wants a family, not baby mammas that he talks bad about, he'll put a ring on it. If a man wants happiness he'll put a ring on it because hoe-ing (and good looks) only lasts so long. 

These are just my opinions though. Read another good article on this topic at BitchieLife.
