    How do you know what she will be like after the marriage? Sex dries up, your bank account dries up, she's off to the next.
    BC you should KNOW her long before marriage. This is a losing argument in here but i have so many ignorant friends who treat their wives like $#@!, and yea sure than the woman files. And they curse them and act like their $#@! don't stink when they're the ones neglecting their family.

    A whore will always be a whore, that's your job to figure out.


    Money is a trouble area but if you communicate, dont lie, and understand each other it shouldnt dry up...

    My argument basically is I think people marry just to marry sometimes, not for the right reason.

    I agree you definitely should but there is no way to really know how age and children will affect her.

    Absolutely.

    Do not disagree. My argument is that it is a financial liability regardless.

    It just seems that marriage can be a big liability and IF it goes sour the woman has all the power to clean you out.
    @Sticky, marriage is what you put into it. I know you've heard it before but it is the truth. It requires as much - if not more - foresight, planning and effort as your career choice. Most men, including myself, did not realize the magnitude of work it takes to have a successful and fulfilling marriage.

    Our marriage has never been "terrible" as I poorly portrayed in my first post here. My point was this - if your wife/partner does not share your view of finances and/or child rearing you will likely be a statistic (or in a miserable marriage). I was with my wife for 3 years before marriage so it wasn't a shotgun 3 month engagement and a diamond ring.

    The college bills she assumed - as she had for her first 23 years - that Daddy would just right a check for it and be done. Well, Daddy's business took a big hit circa 2007/2008 and his resources were needed to save the family lumber brokerage business - not bail out his adult daughter marrying another adult with a proper career.

    I totally understand her Dad's stance. My father in-law and I get along great and we are good fishing beer drinking buddy's today. He's a fabulous grandpa to our son as well. No ill-will at all for that choice to send the college bill to our address.

    The bills were less of a "hiding game" and more an insight to her naivete at the time. It was a reality check for her that the Disneyland Dad deal has an expiration date at adulthood. She just assumed Dad would take care of it and instead I took care of them. I hope that makes sense.

    My wife and I are WAY beyond that today. She's got herself an excellent career with pretty decent pay and today, we are on the same page financially. I wouldn't want it any other way - the grass is very green right here!

    With the dual-income from two professionals, I find the modern marriage to be a SOLID financial investment. However, I knew firsthand I couldn't be with someone longing to be a stay-at-home mom someday. Hot women in business suits still drive me nuts.

    What us boys need to realize, is the tremendous amount of effort and attention it takes to maintain a happy marriage. It is not the simple "bring home the bacon" and all is well mentality we see portrayed today.

    The work is worth the reward, IMO.

    Thats why I married a foreign woman, less problems to worry about such a cultural influences and traditional ideologies that can wreak havoc in a house hold.

    Technically, being married has its finiancial positives over premaritial relationships - a waste of money, might as well spend it on prostitution and get better results, its just if it ever ends the finiancial part of it can turn into a nightmare, and a woman being a woman when her mind is set on revenge, then oh well we all should know by now how that will turn out

    I'm thinking a foreign woman may be the way to go. The women here tend to want to party and ride the carousel until getting toward the end of their desirability at which point a mad dash for a man to take care of them. Just what I tend to see.

    some advice DO NOT let your wife take care of all the finances !!!! to many friends have done this and one day they find out there 80,000 in credit card debt with nothing to show for it . find out the wife was using credit to pay house,car,shopping ,dinners,ect... always look at the accounts at least once a month if you are going to be this guy!!!

    Asking the wife to take care of finances would be like asking your dog to watch your steak while you step out for a bit.

    Marriage isnt a tough deal at all, if it is, you married the wrong person. Next month is my 21st year and never been happier. Before all you single guys start, I did $#@! you boys would think is gross before I was married. I travelled Europe, I $#@!ed anything with a pulse [ and sometimes without one] and had a blast.

    I still enjoy my life, I still love being married.

    I doubt I'm wrong on that one. Plus my father said the biggest mistake he ever made in his life was allowing my mother to assume any control of his finances. That's enough for me.

    Hah maybe a bit of both. All I know is I don't ever want a woman to use my own finances against me.

    Its all about making sure you marry the right one bro. My wife married me when I had a english stately home FcUK Hall! We had nothing and were happy. Now, well now we are quite comfortable and still happy. We dont want for much, have good friends, a great social life and 2 great kids.

    Cant think of anything else I would need. OK a wife who won £4000000 on the lottery would be cool too!

    Finding a girl in SoCal who is happy with you when you have nothing or little is impossible. They all think they are entitled to some guy with millions and to be pampered like some queen just because they have a vagina.

    My friends wife is complaining recently because he had trouble finding a new job after he got fired, because one of her friends had a kid, and because another girlfriend bought a house. I swear it's like a never ending list of things to keep a woman happy and it is constantly changing based on what her friends are doing. It's idiotic.

    Been married for ~8 years. I've found it to be overall very rewarding despite the occasional headache. My wife is fairly pampered (doesn't work, doesn't watch our son during the day, doesn't cook or clean, etc) but she's good with money and for the most part keeps me happy. Click here to enlarge

    When we first married I did a prenup but it was relatively fair. It basically just documented each of our assets going in to the marriage (mine were fairly considerable in comparison), and stated that in the event of divorce the only common assets are those that we specifically have joined. Like homes where I've listed her on the title, etc. Over the years I've listed her on most everything except those assets I originally had. But at this point its more for estate planning than anything else.

    Good points Chuck. +repped

    On another note, when "$#@! changes" and you're with a partner that works with you not for you or against you - both of your "$#@! will change" seamlessly and together. The net result is nothing changed and you're in this game together with your wife, partner best-friend (hopefully!). Sounds like you and wife were cut from a similar cloth. Nice score dude.

    The two most difficult yet rewarding jobs a man can be blessed to have - father and husband.
