Why Your Not Married

Sound advice for women who want to get married. I would add stop reading romance novels. I am lucky in that my wife seemed to get this from the start.

Because ultimately, marriage is not about getting something -- it's about giving it. Strangely, men understand this more than we do. Probably because for them marriage involves sacrificing their most treasured possession -- a free-agent penis -- and for us, it's the culmination of a princess fantasy so universal, it built Disneyland.

The bottom line is that marriage is just a long-term opportunity to practice loving someone even when they don't deserve it. Because most of the time, your messy, farting, macaroni-and-cheese eating man will not be doing what you want him to. But as you give him love anyway -- because you have made up your mind to transform yourself into a person who is practicing being kind, deep, virtuous, truthful, giving, and most of all, accepting of your own dear self -- you will find that you will experience the very thing you wanted all along:

Love.



Diego adds: Women don't need to stop reading romance novels they just need to reconcile them with reality and learn how they can enhance their relationship. Romance novels and movies are like porn; know their place.
