    Marriage is declining in part due to men wising up.

    Family court and divorce is a stacked deck. No guy in his right mind would risk his assets like that.

    Life was so much simpler when I didn't have assets.

    Oh, and I agree.

    Bingo. Get the government out of marriage, and the institution will return to its former glory. Otherwise, screw it.

    Oh man 'o' man.......that was sooooo appropriate to our times. Reagan must have had a crystal ball!

    I hope we can manage to return to traditional values, where everything isn't judged by "shades of grey", but morality, based on beliefs that we, as a people, truly believe in.

    We have strayed......but, that doesn't mean we can't find a way to return to the foundations of integrity.....and, honor.

    The problem is, the GOP is almost indistinguishable from the democrats on many issues involving freedom. Both want to tax me to do what they consider good things. Both want to control different aspects of my private life.

    Does the GOP know why people stayed home?

    We have people staying home because of the Electoral College system. If it's obvious which way your state is going to go, there's no need to vote.

    Gee, and people wonder why I think that some of the GTPI crowd are +40yo SWMs that still live with their Moms. :faint:

    Unfortunately that thought process often keeps folks from voting in state and local elections where their vote could make a difference.

    We don't wonder. We know. It's a classic case of projecting your own miserable existence onto all the successful people around you.

    If being a +40yo SWM that lives with his Mom, has a "Command Post" in the basement and working part-time at Papa John's is successful, well........

    P.S. don't forget, this same bunch thought Romney would win by a landslide. :faint:

    Proof people in mass are stupid.

    And we have a Bingo.

    A coworker of mine just got married after dating her guy for ten years. A small, in front of a judge ceremony with a total of nine people in attendance. I actually knew it was happening and her parents didn't (long story)

    When I asked why he wanted to get married all the reasons were sorry...stupid.

    Well in case one of us dies (they co-own a house)....I said get a will?

    In case one of needs to pull the plug on the other (my paraphrasing)....I said get a POA?

    Ironically, 5-6 reasons later the word love was never uttered.

    As a married man of 21 years I can honestly say if my wife got smacked by a bus tomorrow I would never get married again..

    Unless Jennifer Aniston is taking applications..:supergrin:
