Acie has brought the reason to this thread.

I really don't want to get into too much of a tangent right now, but just a few things.

a. I've been with my wife since I was 18. I could've gotten married at 20 and we would've been fine. Have we had ups and downs? Yeah. It's healthy and strengthens the relationship. We didn't because of finances. We both like to play it safe in life. Everything we've done has taken time. Anyways, getting married was one of the best decisions I've made in my life. But that's just for me. I could give to shits for anyone else, because I know it isn't for anyone.

b. There's an inherit distrust it seems by some of the people on this board when it comes to women and even a level of (a very basic level) of misogyny. I'm not going to go out of my way to point it out, but I read a few lines here, and really, it became disturbing (to me at least). It's just sad, that there's this level of distrust and ridicule that, if women don't subscribe to your point of view (i.e. being subservient to some extent) that they need to be demeaned. I mean, this isn't anything new or groundbreaking, I just expect more.

c. pzabby, european way? the fuck you talking about? I have a few friends back in europe who do not, and I repeat, do not subscribe to this view you tried to espouse earlier. If anything, it's a country bumpkin way of thinking. Oh, and please, don't try to romanticize that continent. Beyond sexuality, and some other policies, it's one of the more conservative continents in the world.

d. can we just get back to talking about basketball?

Why would you say they're bitches? Not saying some aren't, just like some men are complete assholes. But what brought you to this conclusion? You often make sweeping generalizations about women (gals?) and I just wonder why such disdain for as you put it "a lot" of women?

How is the use of the term gals a sweeping generalization? Also ive had a lot of bad experiences with girls where even if I was just being friendly they treated me like dirt like I wasn't worthy to even talk to them. Yeah there are guy ass holes. A lot of them. But there are just as many girl ass holes. And while I'm a fan of the whole feminism movement it has allowed a lot of abuse to come from girls where it has gone past equality and is now demeaning to men (in some cases, not all). What's even worse is they're extremely hypocritical where they try and play the victim when really they're the absolute asses but they're excused just because they have a vagina. Sorry but this is a very noticeable thing and I've been victim to it far too many times to not be pissed

There's a huge difference between being a romantic and being a hopeless romantic. If you expect everyone to be nice, and wish for near perfection to drop from the sky and be impressed by your dog eared copy of being and nothingness, you invite cynicism and desperation. That's not romantic. If the assholes get shrugged off and the snobs are smirked at you can just move on to find more real people and real relationships, which is what a romantic really wants. Dickheads should be expected and dismissed, like bumps in the road.

All that stuff is just women getting their backs up because there are too many players out there. Don't know if you have any sisters or female cousins, but they'll tell you that a lot of guys have a pretty airtight game where they bag 'em, tag 'em and on to the next one before she even knows what's real. Most of the girls your talking about don't know whether you are one of those players. Having said that, there are obviously some female game players too.

You're so full of shit. Marriage hasn't changed in Europe? . It took 20 seconds and one google search during a commercial to find marriage stats compiled by the UN for economic purposes. Europeans are not looking to get married in their early 20s. They don't view it favourably.

Here are the average ages of men at the time of their FIRST marriage in some European countries.

In France in 2009, 31.7 years.

In Germnay in 2009, 33 years.

In Spain in 2009, 32.8 years.

In the UK in 2009, 32.1 years.

and this is exactly what i'm talking about. guys are always the asswipes while the girl is the poor, helpless victim so theyre allowed to act like asses to other guys since they probably too are douches? way too much bias here

I don't know how long you've lived in Europe pzabby but people in U.S./Canada get married earlier than in most European countries. and remember that Europe is a continent, not a country.
i.e. None of my friends in Europe are thinking about getting married while 5 are already married in NA.

One of the countries that do tend to get married younger is India. I believe for men it's around 25 and women it's 22. But that culture I believe still have some arranged marriages, not sure the rate of that though.

I remember reading recently that worldwide the average age for marriage for a man is 29, 26-27 for women. Soon enough it'll be 30+ for men.

this thread just...

ok, if they really do like eachother, are committed, etc. than good for them, get married. most of us would say it's too young but ppl can get married young and nothing bad comes of it. maybe JV doesn't want a party bachelor experience (the dude already probably had a lot of his fair share of fun times in Lithuania, many girls probably saw and know from experience that he could stroke it from long range or that he has really great hands for a big man ).

a prenup should be written up though, just in case

anywho, it doesn't matter what the hell we think cuz jv and his girl/partner are not reading what we say/type/comment.
