Quiz For Men: Should You Get Married?

The quick answer is NO!!!

Before we get to the actual quiz, consider the following.


Right or wrong, marriage used to provide a man with:
1) Exclusive access to a woman's labor.
2) Exclusive access to a woman's body.
3) Access to/control of his children (helpers).

Other than that, marriage was, and always has been, and continues to be, something to benefit women and children. It has provided women with protection, income, labor, and children and assigned default paternity over her children to her husband whether or not he actually made them with her.

Now, marriage guarantees nothing beneficial to a man that he couldn't get otherwise:
1) A woman's labor can be bought for much less than half of his income (which is the minimum a wife costs), while a wife can do nothing or actually be counterproductive and suffer no financial, legal, or social penalties.
2) Everything from casual sex with virtual strangers with little time, money, or effort spent to long term relationships can be had without marriage now. Wives can reject their husbands, and if their husband still tries, that is assault/domestic violence. Also, a wife suffers no legal or financial penalties for sharing her body with people other than her husband.
3) Children have been turned into liabilities and expenses more than assets now, but if you still want them you can sue for access or use a surrogate. Conversely, many wives have taken children away from their husbands physically and emotionally (parental alienation).


So with that in mind, see if you can get through this quiz:

1. Do you want children? (Yes or No)
If you already have minor children, then you should not get married UNLESS it is to the mother of those children AND you can make it through the rest of this quiz.


2. Do you want sex?
If no, then skip to 4
If yes, then continue to 3.


3. a) Do you think that sex should only be within marriage? b) Are you sure you're OK limiting yourself to only having sex with one ever-aging person for the rest of your life, and only when that person feels like it? c) If you've had sex with this person, is it great?
If no to any of those, then DO NOT MARRY.
If yes to all, then continue.


4. Does she or will she soon earn more income than you, and are you OK with that, and is she OK with that and still able and willing to respect you? (Yes or No)


5. If the answers to 1, 2, and 4 are all no, DO NOT MARRY.
If the answer to 2 is YES but any answer to 3 is no, DO NOT MARRY.
If the answer to 1 or 4 is YES AND/OR the answer to 2 and all of 3 is YES, keep going.


6. If she disagrees with you on any of 1, 2, or 3, DO NOT MARRY HER.


7. Would you be OK with the very real possibility that she may change her mind about 1?
If NO, then don't marry.
If YES, then continue.


8. If NO to 2, would you be OK with the very real possibility that she may change her mind?
If YES to 2, Are you aware and accepting of the possibility she may reduce the duration, frequency, scope, and other conditions of sex?
If NO, then DO NOT MARRY.
If YES, then continue.


9. Would you be OK with the very real possibility that she may change her mind (or things may change) about 4?
If NO, then DO NOT MARRY.
If YES, then continue.


10. Are you OK with assuming default paternity status, meaning that if a woman has a child, no matter what the circumstances - including with another man or when you found out - you'll be legally and fiscally responsible for that child for 18-25 years, including for college expenses?
If NO, then DO NOT MARRY.
If YES, then continue.

If NO, then DO NOT MARRY.
If YES, then continue.
