    Also if you're really that worried about a woman taking half your stuff, assuming you don't marry someone richer then you, then just sign a prenup.

    I really don't understand it. You get all the benefits of marriage that you couldn't have gotten 100 years ago without getting married e.g. sex. You will just lose everything when you get a divorce? It's like buying the cow when you can get the milk for free?
    Are your parents married?

    Marriage is more than a transaction ... I'm curious as to what kind of home you grew up in doesn't sound like there was much love.

    My parents are each others first love and happily married and I have no doubt they will never divorce. My parents are quite old fashioned and my mum is very different to women that exist today. If I was to find someone with the personality similar to my mum, I would happily get married but I fear they died out in the 60s. Infact, growing up I always had dreamed of getting married but that has pretty much died in the last few years. Society today is full of degenerate whores (including men), cheating is rife. I have no hope for a lasting marriage and hence I just don't see it's worth, men will only lose everything from divorce.

    The number of men a woman sleeps with before you determines how likely she is to divorce you.

    Prenups are meaningless in the UK.

    Even just going based on practicality, there are a number of advantages to marriage in today's society. There are so many legal implications. I'm in the US, so things might be slightly different, but there can be big benefits to filing your taxes together. If something happens, you're the next of kin. If someone goes into the hospital, the spouse can visit. That's part of why it was such a big deal for the government to allow same-sex marriage. Beyond the symbolic side of it, there are legal benefits!

    It is not all about sex. Anyway your illustration is so vague (girl-->cow)

    I don't see why men get married nowadays. Although even when couples just live together, once they split up the woman can still take the man for all he's worth thanks to the new status of the 'common-law wife' which is ridiculous.
    Most wealthy men aren't stupid enough to enter marriage without signing a prenup first

    why you think that virginity is such a big issue and losing or having it should have an impact on person's life?

    Men benefit more from marriage: they get a domestic servant full time and someone to look after their children. Most child poverty in single psrent families is due to men abandonning their children financially as well as emotionally. My father walked out and my mother struggled and brought us up all by herself. Women get the raw end of the stick. In the past, a sense of shame and societal pressure would have forced men to behave like decent human beings, today men can come and go as they please. It's still a man's world.
