They've made sex the only reason to get married and that's not feasible when the biological need for fidelity is taken off the table.

Women have made themselves obsolete. The only thing they could ever do that men can't is bear children, and they no longer raise those children.

Sex? Marital rape is a thing so sex is not guaranteed at all. There is a whole subreddit dedicated the topic called deadbedrooms I think.

Marriage has become like becoming an indentured servant for men. Wife can have or abort kids, yours or not, at will. Work or not depending on whim. You basically have to buy your way out of the contract to regain freedom. I have always been financially supportive of my kid, but thankfully never married his mother.

Honestly that is the best route men can take these days.

You should post this stuff on poal from time to time.

Maybe you could enable automatically cross posting from Voat to Poal?

If I have to post a lot I would make a script first I think.

Thats a good idea, I'm not sure how I would do it, but its a good idea. I'll look into it.

Expecting, hoping a woman is faithful is patriarchy.

Hope in one hand, shit in the other. Guess which one will fill up first.

It's supposed to be a joke, but that's literally how marriages used to work in many cultures. You got your breithimh (lawyer) to meet with her breithimh and together you negotiated a contract as to how the marriage was supposed to work.

Imo that's better than the current situation where you sign a blank check where the state writes the contract and can rewrite it at any time.

True. Clear expectations are always better.
