Yeah this one really baffled me.
Indeed, the man cave is a fortress of solitude, a retreat if you will. Certainly not a prison.
I also doubt that men are thinking it through like that. "Gee, I better not get married because if I do, I might have kids. And then I might get a divorce. And then if I refuse to pay child support, I might go to jail! Nope, better not get married in the first place!"
she wasn't stating video games was a reason, she was saying men have more distractions now that keep their minds occupied.
i don't know many men who play video games though
Or, maybe there are valid reasons why marriage is different today than it was a generation ago.
Even garages and attics are appealing to men.
While women on the lower rung of the economic scale often get screwed by deadbeat dads, the female dominated (all 12 judges in my county are women) divorce courts think nothing of bleeding a hard working man with assets while demanding little from many of the spoiled divas they married.
What's ironic is men get only marginal value from our pop culture for earning a salary and paying the bills until a divorce. Only then do courts recognize a man's paycheck and hard work to keep his family from living in poverty.
Monogamy goes against nature's laws of survival of the fittest that have been imprinted for billions of years.
"Survival of the fittest" = not a nature's law of survival. I think you mean natural selection, which isnt the same thing.
Prenups. Though it takes two highly rational people to agree to that.
Thank you for your wisdom. If it was good enough for Darwin's 5th edition, it's good enough for me, though.
There probably is some merit to the other reasons listed in the video, but I think pornography and abortion should top the list as reasons why men are not marrying.
I suspect that she means "loss of control over space" rather than actual loss of space. A single guy may choose to store his tackle boxes on the dining room table and design the living room around a subwoofer. Married, he often controls the environment only in the man cave, if indeed he has one.
I'm willing to accept that theory.
The video, however, did an awful job of supporting said theory.
Marriage is kinda like buying a box of chocolates...you've got to buy the whole box just to get one little piece to satisfy your craving.
You don't have to marry my wife, just take her out and keep her amused for a couple mont.... years and bring her back when she is trained.
be thankful. Twice a week is way better than the average dude is getting. Especially for those in a semi-long to long term relationship.
Or when the sex is great until you have a baby and her anatomy changes so now it "hurts" :sick:
My and ex and i would bang non-stop the first 9 months together. I mean, if we weren't at work, we were banging. No hyperbole. Than, I started hearing the UTI thing...we couldn't do it two days in a row...then it got to be twice a week...then about once a week.
They are funny(infuriating) animals.
A man becomes very sick. No matter what he does, his health continues to deteriorate. He and his wife go to specialist after specialist, each is unable to diagnose the man’s problem. Finally, they go to the Mayo Clinic. The man goes in first, talks to the doctor. He then comes back out into the waiting room. The doctor steps out and asks his wife to step in for a moment.
“Ma’am, I’m afraid your husband has a very serious, stress-related illness,” the doctor says. “It could be fatal. I think we can pull him out of it, but I’m going to need your help. For six months, we must remove all stress from his life. Your part in this will begin when he comes home from work each day. I want you to meet him at the door wearing a slinky negligee and holding a beer in your hand. Guide him over to his favorite recliner, encourage him to lean back and relax. Give him the beer, take off his shoes. Tell him to take it easy, read the paper or watch TV while you fix dinner.
“I then want you to go into the kitchen and fix him a sumptuous meal featuring all his favorite foods,” the doctor continued. “Light candles on the dining room table, and invite him in to eat. After he’s had his fill, encourage him to head back out to the living room and relax some more. You clean the kitchen and the dining room. Throughout all this, of course, I want you to let him dictate the conversation–don’t trouble him with the details of your day, don’t nag him, don’t ask him to do any chores or bother him in any way. The idea is to allow him to relax completely.”
“Once he’s had sufficient time to rest, invite him back to the bedroom,” the doctor concluded. “Start off with a thorough, hot-oil sensual body massage and then kiss him. Make mad, passionate love to him in whatever way he prefers, completely sublimating your desires to his. I will need you do all of this every night for six months. If you do so, we might be able to save him from this condition.”
The woman thanked the doctor and walked back into the waiting room, where the husband was waiting and anxious. “What did the doctor tell you?” the man asked.
“He said you’re going to die.”
