So why don’t men want to get married anymore?
The willingness of a man to get married tells you just how much he’s really willing to commit to you. That’s why so many women are concerned with a man’s reluctance to get married.
Why is he holding back on this final step of commitment?
American adults who’ve never been married is at a historic high.
Men are more likely than women to have never gotten married (23% men vs. 17% of women – as of 2012 data).
AND – according to Pew Research Center, the share of women ages 18 to 34 that say having a successful marriage is an important part of their lives rose 9 points since 1997—from 28 percent to 37%.
For men, it was the opposite. The share of guys saying that it was important for them dropped, from 35 to 29%.
With statistics like that, I thought it was high time we look into the reasons that men are opting out of marriage in record numbers.
The problem isn’t that men are immature, or lazy. Men today simply respond to the incentives given to them. I’m going to expose them for you here.
Now, some of these reasons are going to be tough to hear. They may even be downright depressing…
BUT – if you’re armed with my strategies for reaching his heart, you don’t have to worry. You simply have to show him that you’re not like the OTHER girls out there. (And hopefully that’ll be true…)
I’ll tell you what he needs to see from you in a minute…
Alright, let’s jump into the nitty gritty of it with these 7 reasons why men don’t want to get married…
Why He Won’t Propose – REASON 1: He will look like a buffoon…
It used to be, if you were a married man, you were THE Man.
You were strong, capable. And you had a woman completely dedicated to YOU. If you married her you did the right thing – and that made you a gentleman.
Thanks to television, movies, and our culture, a man who becomes a husband today also becomes looked down upon.
He’s pitied, not admired…
He’s whipped, not masculine…
If I hear one more guy tell me in that pathetic tone of voice that he has to check with “the boss,” I’ll scream. (These guys are always hoping for me to chuckle or smile, and I usually just shake my head at them.)
Ever since the 1970s (and probably going back further), men have not been portrayed as respectable on television or in the media. It’s rare that you see a guy who isn’t one of two stereotypes:
1. The Bumbling Idiot: It’s all he can do to not mess things up. His long-suffering wife usually just puts up with him long enough to find another reason to put him down. Hilarity ensues…
2. The Killer: This guy is the violent stone-cold killing machine of the R-rated movie variety. He lives to kill. Oh, and no woman can resist him.
Men today look foolish confessing to being a “married man.” It used to be a respectable title, one of provider and bread winner. And now that women can do everything a man can – and better, from what some say – he doesn’t have a place as a reliable cornerstone of a family.
By sheer volume, 69 percent of mass media reporting and commentary on men was unfavorable. Now compare that with just 12% favorable and 19 percent neutral or balanced.
How does that sound to you?
It doesn’t sound good for guys. At all.
I don’t want to sound like some old fashioned chump here, but the reality is that as gender roles have shifted around (in confusing spirals, mostly). We have lost touch with the value of the solid, reliable man.
Why He Doesn’t Want Marriage – REASON 2: He will get less sex…
And the statistics say that this is true.
Not only will he lose the variety of sexual partners he had in his single life, the frequency drops incredibly. And even though men usually reach a point where frequency beats out variety, he still needs the “horizontal bop” quite a bit.
Married men do have more sex than single men, on average.
However, they have much less than men who are living with their partners outside of marriage. Especially as the years go on.
Men’s Health mentioned one study that followed almost 3000 people over six years. They found that co-habiters claimed they were more confident – and overall happier – than married couples and singles.
The reasons are pretty evident. When we get married, we tend to either take the relationship for granted, or check out.
