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?

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? '...love 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.
