A: No.

Surveys of single men vs. married men generally include divorced men in the category of single men.

That divorced men are miserable goes without saying, and it is one of the first reasons single men cite for not becoming married men.

In fact, for the purposes of social science, divorced men should be counted as married men, since in western countries no man marries a woman without also marrying divorce.

Also, since most divorced men still pay to support a woman and children they are therefore effectively, still married to the women they divorced (most divorced women on the other hand are in actuality polygamists – often married and collecting support from multiple men.)

When a man marries a woman, he is also marrying divorce. He many not know it until some years later, which is one reason why so many men prance about pompously in their cages for years like caged lions, unaware of their captive status and therefore answering surveys administered by women about the subject of marriage with such stunning ignorance.

When the women do the surveys of how happy the married men are, do the wives have their hands grasped around the husband’s left nut or his right one?

I can assure you that single men are far happier than married men.

I’m single and happy. No stress or nagging plus it is much cheaper to live. I enjoy investing in the market and taking chances on stocks I probably would be to reserve and nervous with a family.

10-4 on that one, buddy.

I don’t know how old I was, maybe around 30, when it occurred to me for some reason that in all my years up to that point I’d never heard a married man that I knew talk about what a great thing marriage is, you know, from his personal experience.

At the time, I was part of a social organization or activity club which was 90+% male, but nevertheless drew a wide variety of types. From little overheard comments one got the idea that the men all looked forward to the monthy meetings — and going for a beer and a bite afterwards — as an excuse to get away from their wives for about a full evening. (I mean, where can men really go? The mall? What, to watch women shop?)

In other words, marriage has very few if any advocates among at least this sample of everyday married men. I’ve kept my ears open for years since, and around a pretty good sampling of different types of people, and there’s been the proverbial deafening silence on this.

If marriage is such a great thing for men, why do we need research to turn up that fact? Wouldn’t it be fairly obvious based on what we heard people say in the course of our day-to-day conversations?

Incase anybody missed it.

Women have been proving for the last 30 years that men have been right for the last 30 centuries!

On the Fuc*edcompany.com Buletin Board was a posting. Married Men who Hate your Life. It grew to over 400+ pages of Married Men who hated their lives. Clearly the postings revealed what a mistake it was for many married Men to tie the knot. And how little their wives did to meet their Sexual Needs or any needs. Many complained their wives were always looking for a Bigger Home, or New Furniture, or endless remodeling.

Men in the US who have gone exPat refer to it as US Sex Prison for Men. And are voting with their feet. While Middle Eastern and Central Asian Women know real oppression or deluded Feminist Career Women refer to Men who want a sane stable life as “the Taliban”. Truly vile insults and then Wonder why none of these hateful creature want anything to do with them. Enjoy life with your Cats and your Sex In The City, DVDs. You are unfit to be a wife or Girlfriend.

And here is a real shock for you. You have succeeded in making us hate you. You read that correctly we hate you as much as we hate you. Decades of lies, insults, legal sanctions, Governmental oppression, have turned us against you.
