A Man’s Top 5 Reasons To Grow Up and Get Married…

crowder-weddingLOVED the article by Steven Crowder. Here are bits and pieces of it …

Sadly, marriage has become a punchline in today’s society. From referring to the wife as “the old ball and chain” to nearly every poorly written sitcom that we watch, the message we’re sending to today’s generation is clear… Marriage = no fun.

Picture coming home every night to your best friend, your greatest fan, and your number one supporter. She (or he) makes each good day better, and each bad day good again. Every day, you get to live what is essentially a 24/7 sleepover party with the greatest friend you’ve ever had.  … Now add sex and sandwiches.  Get married, like, now.

Okay. Here are a few purely statistical reasons as to why marriage (when done correctly) is conducive to an undeniably better life. Hold onto your butts.

1. You’ll be richer – Yes. Not only do married couples make more, save more, have a higher net worth and qualify for more benefits/financial incentives than lonely, single folk… but your kids will be richer too. Which brings me to my next point

2. Would somebody please think of the children!! – The single biggest indicator of child poverty is whether both original parents are still together. Not only that, but children in married householdsget better grades, are less disruptive in class and less likely to develop behavioral disorders than children from non-married households. So be married long and prosper. Your kids will too.

3. You’ll have more sex… A LOT MORE SEX – Okay so you may not want kids. You may despise them. I get it. Sticky hands. Let’s say you’re just another selfish, narcissistic bachelor (or bachelorette) who quite frankly, isn’t deserving of the unconditional love you may oh-so-luckily find. You just want the sex. Statistically, not only do married people have more sex, they have better, more satisfying sex. If the two of you should hold off on sex until marriage, those statistics become even more promising. Here’s a perfect example of where Hollywood gets it wrong. In the real world, while Alfie fruitlessly toiled away at picking up harlots from the bar, suffering a mean case of whiskey-wiener, Mr. Cleaver was getting busy on the regular. Them’s the real breaks.

    Unfortunately the ‘promise’ of sex isn’t always true. In my case it was a big fat lie. If I had known the truth of how much work is required and how many hoops a man has to jump through to get a wife interested in sex, I would have nixed the whole idea of marriage and just stuck with masturbation. All of the other benefits of marriage, one can have as a single man. It is only sex that requires marriage. And sex in and of itself, in my experience of what it has been, wasn’t worth getting married for.

      I’m sorry for your struggles in marriage. That’s not the way God intended marriage to be. I would greatly suggest two things …

      1) Communication – explain exactly how you feel. Don’t beat around the bush. Be kind, gentle, yet very straight forward.

      2) MOST important is counseling. Professional counseling. It is the best way to help your marriage.

  • Make date night a priority and a regular part in your marriage. Find a babysitter and go to supper, a movie or both. http://t.co/xRHrcKgWwu
  • People who make excuses don’t make a difference.
  • God’s plans are greater than our mistakes.
  • MEN: Don't be married to your career. Your net worth isn't your self-worth. Let your legacy be built on your faith, marriage and family.
  • Get married and tie the knot! Don't let work, the kids, a flirty secretary, parents, or ANYTHING else untie that knot. Keep it tied tight.
