The U.S. marriage rate is down 5% this year. In general, men don’t see marriage as being as important as they did even 15 years ago. According to, here’s a rundown of some big reasons men just don’t want to get married these days.

  • You lose respect – The media paints a picture of married guys as fat and stupid. Why would any guy sign up for that?
  • Your sex life falls apart – While married men have more sex than single men, they have much less sex than men who are living with their partners outside of marriage.
  • You lose space – Guys have "man caves" because they’ve lost the battle for the rest of the house.
  • You lose your freedom – Your life is no longer your own, as most every major decision needs to be run by your wife.
