As a man who is the primary bread winner (or as a woman, too), shouldn't the idea of marriage scare you now more than ever? A spouse can initiate a divorce nowadays for no specific wrong doing, just irreconcilable differences, and yet you have to pay money for years, even if they were the one who had cheated on you. Imagine that, the girl cheats on you, breaks the marriage, and you have to pay her for it! If you have a kid, she gets custody and even if she couples up with who becomes your child's step father, you still have to pay child support! Even if she was the one who cheated. Is this not insane? We live in a time of equality, where women are free to pursue careers, yet where I live, and all through Canada from what I can tell, females get this weird double standard where we play a game of pretend equality, but really she gets all these weird opportunities to exploit the shit out of her ex husband.
Even if they don't cheat and she just wants out because she's bored, it's still insane to have to pay her. Marriage used to mean something and was hard to get out of, now it seems like a tool for extortion.
