23. 10 Reasons Not to Get Married

http://www.alternet.org/story/155766/10_reasons_not_to_get_married?page=entire

1. You are focused on your career. (AND YOU WANT TO EAT)

2. You have standards.

3. You can't afford it....It's not even that women don't want to get married, as much as men don't feel ready to propose until they have the cash to support a family. There is no special Spanx you can buy that will bolster a man's self-esteem to convince him that you don't care he is broke. Many people are still tied to the idea that men have to out earn women, even though you have a job (remember that you are mega-focused on) and could probably support the both of you. Plus, the average cost of a wedding is 27, 000 dollars. Yes, you read that right.

4. You are waiting until all people can get married.

5. You don't need or want a symbolic public ceremony to celebrate something you already have.

6. You've got a life and friends that you are happy with. (THIS MUST BE THE HUMOR SECTION)

7. Monogamy just doesn't work for you.(MORE LIKELY, IT DOESN'T WORK FOR HIM)

8. You are sexually liberated.(WHOA! SERIOUS EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS HERE)

9. You have "issues." (SOUNDS LIKE A MULTI-YEAR SUBSCRIPTION)

10. You legitimately just don't want to get married. (IT IS A FOOLISH THING TO DO, ECONOMICALLY, MOST OF THE TIME...UNLESS HE'S A BILLIONAIRE AND DOESN'T BELIEVE IN PRE-NUPS).
