I won't risk divorce... I WOULD LIKE TO RETIRE SOMEDAY!
This whole discussion is kind of moot... why would any man marry ANY woman in ANY country these days with as prejudiced and bigoted against men as divorce laws now are? And there are many more single women than single men on this planet anyways.
Here in the U.S. I have no fewer than EIGHT women trying to date me right now even though I have a gf and I'm just a little better than average looking. There is a man shortage once you get over age 30.
I'm 34 and I grew up hearing about and seeing on tv in the U.S just how screwed men are in a divorce. Us hard-working younger men just don't want to risk it so marriage is NOT an option unless the woman makes a lot more money than the man. I WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO RETIRE SOMEDAY!
For a very very very poor guy then yes marriage could be ok... maybe.
The purpose of marriage was NEVER about love... it was about supporting women and kids so that they didn't starve. Now that we are in the 21st Century with plentiful and easy-to-prepare food, washing machines, dishwashers etc the purpose of marriage is moot.
The fact is that as soon as you marry a woman things get worse ~ unless she is one of the honest women capable of true love, of which there are many, but how can you tell for sure?!?!? Is it worth the risk of financial ruin just for a piece of paper?
I have a nice girlfriend and we are very good to each other but I would NEVER ever ever marry her. The fact that we ARE NOT married means that she has to be nice if she wants to keep dating me.
I grew up watching my mom waste all of my dad's money and then run his credit cards to the max on stupid shopping trips for girly stuff . Money that if she hadn't blown it he would be a millonaire now. Very depressing.
Let's face it, every older man that I have asked about marriage, including my dad, said that at best it is just ok and at worst it is a total disaster for the man.
Why take the risk guys?
:: Rooster you seem like a chicken to me... you have zero knowledge of Thai History (Thai schools need to teach you Thai kids History better!) and suggesting that every country open it's borders to every other country is just NUTS. The nicer countries in Asia (which Thailand is becoming one of) and every Western Country would become one big ghetto for the poorest of the poor. If you want open borders Chicken I suggest that you move to Somalia for ten years then come back and tell us what ya think.
Oh, Rooster is a male chicken or other birds. Also the term "chicken" has been misused in slang terms by those who knew nothing about these domestic or wild fowls. In Thai culture, Thai Roosters or Aye Toeng/Gai Ban have been used in cockfight for centuries and are be loved pets by commoners. The unique Thai boxing is patterned from village cockfight and other dangerous animals. Thai Rooster has sharp as needle pincerlike horny structures on their dorsal shanks. I have observed too many minor roosters, mostly young and full of beautiful feathers - lack of mature pincers, massacred by these gai ban roosters.
You got one thing wrong. There is no man shortage over 30.
Every year, the March of Dimes organization in Seattle hosts a March of Dimes Bid for Bachelors, where dates with bachelors are auctioned to the women. For the October 18, 1990, event, the chairwoman described the volunteer bachelors as "everyday kinds of guys." These "everyday kind of guys” were an artist, a stock broker, a doctor, a hydroplane racer, businessmen and even a retired diplomat."
If these are what women consider "everyday kinds of guys," then the vast majority of men, whose incomes and professions do not compare, must qualify as ‘barstards”. Clearly, there is no "man shortage." Only an abundance of shallow women!
