While marriage/kids can force people to grow up, I honestly think it works out better much more often if the people entering into it are already “grown up.” Young marriages do work sometimes, but it's a much harder road because chances are both parties are still going to be changing, growing, and going through general turmoils of financial and personal growth. That's an awful lot of strain for a union to endure. Most 30-somethings I know are not the same people they were at 20.
Croi DhubhI don't know any women like that. (Well, most of the women I know I met in college.) My friend married a guy like that, though. No job, no school, didn't do housework. She had to essentially be his mom. We told her to stay away from him awhile but she was “in love.” *rollseyes* Anyway, it does go back to my thoughts about being a stable, self-sufficient individual before considering marriage.
If you're not going to go to school, have a job, or be a house wife, what's in it for me? So, what, you want to spend my money while watching TV, getting fat, and being a lazy bitch all day? Not going to happen.
