The US Census Department revealed that marriage rates in 2009 were the lowest in more than 100 years. While they attribute it to the economy, those of us who have seen what it is like to have children and marital conflict in the US know that the government’s anti-family and victim-persecuting policies are major disincentives to marrying.

Given the lack of psychological education for children, many suffer badly from child abuse with no help coping. Many of these abused kids go on to become abusers themselves.

Few know how to identify these abusive adults until after they marry them and discover they are being emotionally, verbally, and sometimes physically abused on a frequent basis. It is far too easy to inadvertently marry a sociopath.

Even when you figure out you have married an abusive person, the courts will often, perhaps even usually, not protect you from these people. Instead, they take the abuser’s side and help them commit even more abuses. “Take the kids, take the house, it’s your reward for terrorizing your spouse” is the common refrain of the black-robed bandits in American family law courts.

Is it any wonder why more and more people are wondering whether marriage in America is even safe any more?

    Yea!!! God forbid if I marry a waitress, and it doesn’t work out and she decides that since marriage interrupted her promising career in the SERVICE INDUSTRY that half of my current and future net worth should ease some of her pain!!!

    The above actually happened to a friend of mine. I learn from the mistakes of others. So please . . . don’t tell me that it does not happen.

    I have way too much money to risk losing any of it. Before I get married the woman better make as much me, and yes . . . a prenuptial!!!

    That said, why any man would get married in today’s world, is beyond me. There simply is no point to it, for men.

    I came to this realization AFTER my divorce when the courts became involved. Since then, I have seen just how dangerous marriage is. Why risk it? Why invest my heart and my treasure only to have it all taken away overnight?
