Why would anyone get married in this day & age?



Seems the woman staying at home,making government bank while the man goes to work is the way t ogo now. Safe to say a couple stands to lose $60,000 a year from just getting married if they have children .
Why would anyone want to get married when the deck is really stacked against them?

favorable income tax status, insurance benefits, the ability to take half of a wealthier someone's assets in the event of divorce, ect.

The real question is why would anyone get married in this day & age without a pre-nup?

I guess they just figure half of their stuff is a safe bet that their relationship will stand the test of time.

I realize there's women who work in a marriage but there are a ton of stay at home moms who would stand to make bank if they weren't married.
Agree?

Because that is the standard i grew up under and live by a moral compass that has nothing to do with society.

Only if you don't have kids. Once kids come along, bye bye extra money.

Because if you date enough women sooner or later you will end up with someone like Jodi Arias (SIC).

Pre-nups are so 1990s. There are better ways to protect your monies.

Why would I want to be a stay at home mom when I would make much more working?

To raise kids that understand true family values, the importance of hard work, knowing you have a team mate/partner to always be there for you and to grow old with...........just me......

Married health insurance cheaper than domestic partner insurance.

Being next of kin for medical reasons.


The bank, IRS, credit card companies will answer your damn questions on the phone.


Exes take stepparents more serious than bf/gf.
