Are 20-34 women much more married than men because they're getting married to sugar daddies or something? Or is the figure for them about the same as well? I kind of fail to see the point in this entire article other than to rustle the jimmies of some incels.

    See the problem there?

    I probably won't get married. I like being able to do whatever the fuck I want too much. If I ever want to do something and the other person doesn't agree, I want to be able to say "Get the fuck out of my house" without going through trouble.

    I don't know, I'm in a decent position. I have an apartment, I make 10 times more than the average for my country (~468 euros/month while I make around 4.5k from doing random shit), I still get job offers every few weeks in IT (we have like 35000 spots that need people and even these start from 1.5k) and I have a Mechanical Engineer Bachelor's Degree.

    My girlfriend finished Biochemistry and is doing her masters but she can't find a job. The last offer she had was 6 hours/day working with rather toxic stuff with poor ventilation... for 80e/month... and she had to work 1 week in another town ~600 km away.

    They way court works here...you lose even shit you had before the marriage and kids "can't be separated from the mother except in extreme cases" and most of the time they end up with social services and not the father.

    I'm sorry but it's not worth it...at all.

    What does marriage have to do with kids? Your out of touch if you thing they're in any way reliant on each other anymore.

    I see Marriage as a business decision, one that makes sense if your raising a pack of kids. If you don't have kids it isn't really a great business choice betting your going to succeed and the other partner isn't going to take 1/2 (or more) of your crap.
    So...bad business and a bad gamble.

    No thanks.
    The only reason they'd take 1/2 or more of "your crap" would be if your spouse (male or female) either wasn't working or had proof of possessing something you claimed as yours before the marriage.

    Otherwise, it's not "your crap" but "the marriage's crap" and yes, you will lose part of something that belonged to two people when they split.

In my opinion, there should be other legal documents to see someone in the hospital and a properly written and updated will pretty much puts your assets where you want it.
    You're getting exactly what you deserve.

    Not going to marry, because of the fear of losing MY stuff. Most woman marries the person for money (or wealth), one of my main reason prevent me from getting married.

    I'm not interested in relationships at all, so i'll take your word on tax benefits as i haven't looked into that, but the legal benefits are real. it'd be in *everyone's* interest to move it away from marriage, but then you'd have to have people voluntarily updating paperwork for current boyfriend/ girlfriend and going through so many hoops that no one would keep it up.. which would mean that a parent could fuck over a kid's partner if they hated them. Which is super shitty, and happens with gay couples currently.

    With one kid, the house, and our income - The wife and I got $17,000 back on our taxes this year. Granted we both pay more during the year due to having to actually pay in the past. Getting back a refund check (Federal and State combined) every other year is pretty nice.

    Child tax credit is like 1k per in the US, the cost of having a child vastly outstrips any sort of tax break you might get from having them.

    Considering most people aren't that rich, I disagree with your assessment.

    I do not care to put my self in a position where a woman can take everything I have worked and saved to have.

    cnsnews.com is a conservative website, which immediately makes it questionable.

    That being said, why are men being singled out? Unless there's rampant polygamy, it would follow that 70% of women aged 20-34 are also unmarried.

    Then again, the whole point of the article is to judge those 70% unmarried men as "losers," and a similar article calling 70% of women losers wouldn't go over so well.

    The article is nothing more than conservative complaining about feminism, casual sex, and the decline of marriage. But that's a good thing. People shouldn't have to be married just to have sex, which is what this is really about. Social conservatives want sex to be between a married man and woman.

    If you think sex should be reserved for married people, then great. Don't have pre-marital sex. But don't force your way of living on everyone else. Live and let live.
