Is it really that inconceivable for a man to want to be single for the rest of his life?
I have never dated. But the idea of my having to live a life to please another human being who doesn’t at the bare minimum pay me makes absolutely no sense to me.
Lawyer Brother with “princess wife”
I make a good living. I’m an Oxbridge-trained lawyer who is on track to becoming one of the youngest junior partners in my law firm’s history. I love my job. It’s highly interesting and I go to bed looking forward to the next day of work. I can’t say the same about the prospect of having another woman live in my condo. It fills me with dread to have to share my space with someone.
My older brother is a junior partner at a different law firm and his wife has just been a pain in his butt since they met. Doesn’t work, the maid looks after the kids, and she just buys ridiculously expensive stuff all the time. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him happy since he was married.
Since you get one try to be married to a person. Why would anyone nowadays take that gamble?
Here are what netizens think:
- “Is it really that inconceivable for a man to want to be single for the rest of his life?” No, it’s not. You actually sound like you’re going to be single for the rest of your life. Good marriage > Singlehood > Bad marriage. That’s why people gamble. Just because your brother’s marriage is bad doesn’t thereby mean that every marriage is bad. QED
- Your life your choice. Why bother posting to trumpet your shallow achievements and complain about a personal life choice? No one gives a shit whether you get laid or not.
- Then don’t get married lor. Want us to clap for u and your achievements?
- In the extreme case, you may get paid to help a guilty person get away scot free, denying justice to the innocent. So if you can go to bed to that then don’t just stay single, don’t procreate also
