Why does life need to be perfect and what happened to just getting a wife?

It used to be young people got married and had children and lived happily ever after. Why do people not do this as much now? Young people are told they have to go out and have fun and make something of themselves. We seem to have to go through numerous partners, everything from spouses to one night stands. I'd love to just get a wife and get on with my life but it seems everyone my age don't want to settle down just yet. Why not?

Life was never easy, trust me. If it was then we wouldn't have all the legal protections we do today for no-fault divorce (to make the process less cumbersome and embarrassing for people who both want to get divorced), anti-domestic violence laws, counseling and therapy services, child abuse laws and so on.

My husband and I got married and had kids young, we both were 23. We are very happy and enjoy our settled down life. One night stands and partying isnt all its cracked up to be.

Well why don't you get married and not have children right away. It's not a mistake at all.

Don't worry about others your age. Do what makes YOU happy. Honestly, I don't see any benefit to one-night-stands. Just a chance to pick up an STD and spend your life paying for an accidental pregnancy...

Culture. Find an Asian wife from Hawaii, or a Midwestern wife from Idaho or Iowa. They have the kind of upbringing you are looking for.

Seriously? No, seriously? ' to just get a wife'...are you serious? Don't get me wrong. I'm married and love my wife, but this was NOT something that I pursued. I was PERFECTLY happy before I was married. I got married to make her happy, not to make me happy. Now, kids, that's another story. Guys shouldn't be... More
