Why Can’t Millennials Make Marriage Work?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This week, rather than speculate on the magnitude and direction of the stock market’s next inscrutable lurch, let’s ponder a troubling opinion piece on marriage that appeared in the Asbury Park Press. The author, one Anthony D’Ambrosio, is a 29-year-old millennial whose despairing ruminations bore the headline Five Reasons We Can’t Handle Marriage Anymore. He would know. D’Ambrosio, who writes a regular column on relationships for the newspaper, was a married man himself until recently — to a woman he met in 2004 and whom he wed in 2012. So much for the supposed benefits of a long courtship. Here’s D’Ambrosio’s short list of reasons why millennials are unable forge lasting unions:

• Sex becomes almost non-existent.
• Finances cripple us.
• We’re more connected than ever – but also disconnected.
• Our desire for attention outweighs our desire to be loved.
• Social media just invited a few thousand people into bed with you.

Clearly, this is a guy who still has a lot of soul-searching to do — and maturing. One could also argue that he has missed an important clue by failing to consider why marriages used to work so much better. Men and woman shared a common sense of purpose and an unlimited vista of opportunities when the U.S. emerged from the Second World War. Today, it is just the opposite: Career options for young people are limited, if not to say bleak; and, men and women were not at war back then, nor were they burdened by a sexual revolution that has cast gender roles perhaps irretrievably into doubt.

And there are a hundred other good reasons. What say you, readers?

      It isn’t just millennial that marriage doesn’t work for, and there is nothing puzzling about why marriage is a pointless obsolete concept in this day and age for most people.

      The simple fact is, hedonism has rendered marriage nothing but a death trap for men.
      I can’t imagine why a man would marry. With all the gender confusion, the perverse feminism that tries to pretend that women are actually men and men are actually women and the only difference between the two is some plumbing, why would a man marry?
      Don’t get me wrong, I have been married for over 30 years, but I married a WOMAN. A woman who is proud of her gender, not ashamed of it, and as a result who likes being a woman. And I am a man, a man who is proud of being a man and behaves and acts like a REAL man, not some bullshit pussy who has been convinced he needs to get in touch with some “feminine side” that men do not have.

      Why would a man get married if he is going to have to do women shit? If I had to do the things God equipped women for I may as well stay single.
      And why would a woman marry a man who cannot change a tire or replace wind torn shingles on a roof?

      Then of course there is a fact that once a man gets a woman knocked up, married or not, he is a slave to the system that, no matter how much he tries to be a father and provider, will fuck with him and do everything it can to drive him nuts.

      Then there is the fact that a man can end up in jail , lose everything he has worked for, and end up with a bad reputation for simply marrying a woman who turns out to be contentious as hell and decides when she can’t pussy whip him to slam her face against the door jamb and call the police and make an accusation against him?

      If I was a young man, given the way they teach little girls to be tom boys and little boys to be whiny little pussies who tattletale every time somebody “bullys” them, there is no way I would marry some gender confused genderless fake male.

      Like I say, as soon as the Japanese invent a lifelike realistic robot that can cook eggs and give blowjobs, women will be obsolete and marriage will be rare. Even more rare than it is now.

      Now for the name calling to start. I fully expect replies that are the typical rhetoric of the gender confused like “sexist pig” “misogynist” and all the other rhetoric that gets tossed around when someone speaks the blatant truth.

      Then of course there is also the sick freakish part of gender confusion in which men can pretend to be women and use the wrong shithouse, and pervs can “marry” each other legally. Which has rendered marriage to be a mockery of itself and a meaningless gesture intended to make freaks not feel like freaks.

      Marriage, due to Satans tampering with human minds and hearts and having free reign on the earth, is now nothing more than an exploitable element of society that has no moral purpose.

      I suggest to all young men, get a vasectomy even if you have to go to a foreign country and have NO relationships that last longer than a couple of hours.

      Doing otherwise is the formula for disaster.

      The way marriage works is if a man knows what a man is and a woman knows what a woman is and they don’t try to be each other and both be what God intended.
      And no matter how much social engineering has been programmed into kids, even though censorship stops them from DARING to admit it, they know the truth and simply know if they express the truth and try to live it they will be pariahs and spend their lives being shouted down for not buying into Satans big brother herd mentality.
