I definitely agree with those practical reasons! Several years ago, before I met Fiance, I was doing the math on the financial benefits of marriage (because I am a super nerd and enjoy that kind of thing). Even if you’re a good income earner, it’s no joke how much being married combines expenses and often increases income. Even in a single income household, you’re often still better off married.

I know FOR SURE I am less lazy when Fiance is around!

I agree with the practical reasons as well, but I just can’t stand that guy’s attitude.  I read his other article a while back about how his wedding is better than everyone else’s cause they’d never boned, and this one was admittedly less holier-than-thou.  But I just hate the “my way is the only way” attitude– marriage isn’t for everyone.  Obviously I’m excited about it, but I certainly wouldn’t advise anyone to get married who wasn’t sure about it.  From what I hear, it’s hard as hell, so if you need reasons like “I’ll probably have more sex than if I were single,” it’s probably not your time.

@PetraArkanian:  Ugh, I read that article, too.  What a holier-than-thou prick.

Eh, I found the article a big um harsh towards the single life.  Not everyone is lucky enough to find someone and that doesnt make them a sloth.

 

I will say this, when I was single my productivity was through the roof. I wrote constantly and read for my job a lot. This cannot be said now.

While he may have some practical stats on why marriage is a good thing, I too cannot stand the arrogance and superior attitude he is exuding throughout the article.

ETA: Just noticed the foxnews.org comment, that explains a lot…after reading his other article that is linked, I dislike him even more.

I hate that guy. Poor writer, bad attitude and a total raging douche.

@lass:  This article and most of his articles really bother me. He is haughty and quite judgemental. Facts/stats aside, I have a hard time seeing past his arrogance.
