Marriage in the modern Western context is a system of legalized prostitution by which a man bribes a woman with food/drink, resource security, emotional security, amazing sex, never losing his job, transportation service, an expensive ring, enduring a lavish wedding, and often a place to stay. This in exchange for letting him have regular sexual intimacy and to know who his children are through institutionalized long term monogamy (in practice, this promise is broken in 3.4% of all childbirths). This description of marriage does not constitute all that that women may be entitled to in a marriage, but it does constitute the most a man is expected to receive. The symbol of marriage is the future husband going down on one knee offering an expensive diamond ring to the woman. There is a reason why women hate to be the ones to propose like this, because most of the barter is supposed to be on the male side.
Even if there is 50/50 shared parenting and the mother works, it is still a bribe, as the condition for a stable marriage is only the man keeping his job, not the woman. As the National Parent's Organization says, "The key factor in the decision to divorce is whether Hubby (note, not the wife) has a job. If he doesn’t, even if his job loss is involuntary, his odds of being ditched by his wife skyrocket." But a woman's employment has no influence on divorce rates.
In 1826, Hector Davies Morgan wrote The Doctrine and Law of Marriage, Adultery, and Divorce, which argued, among other things that marriage was an institution to prevent (in his exact words), "involuntary celibacy.
Possible benefits over non-marriage partnerships[edit | edit source]
Marriage has some benefit to men over non-institutionalized long-term sexual bribery as men lose interest in a partner much slower than women and cannot find sex outside of long term relationships as easy as women. This does not mean that women don't enjoy long term monogamous relationships or that men should bribe women for long term monogamous relationships.
Divorce[edit | edit source]
Women initiate over 75% of the divorces explicitly, and probably over 85% implicitly. Your tax dollars then go toward subsidies for single motherhood, and often the state makes the dad pay the woman after she divorces him. The process of women marrying men, and then divorcing him for no good reason and collecting child support/alimony is also known as divorce rape. Women often say this is justified as boomer men cheat about 5% more than boomer women, but with the rise of female hypergamy, Tinder, other online dating, and social media, younger married women of the millennial generation are cheating more than men. Feminist magazine babe.net, celebrated that younger women are now cheating more than men with their article, "Women hate monogamy even more than men do, vindicating empowered hoes everywhere."
Move Toward Polyamory with Rise in Divorce[edit | edit source]
With divorces and broken families rising exponentially and marriages decreasing since feminism and the decline of the family with industrialization., women tout polyandry as a solution to inceldom and general male loneliness.
The only problem is that short-term, high-friction polyamory in a free sexual market makes incels inevitable unless there is a specific social or government program to address inceldom. The growing pool of incels during a rise of polyamory always ends ultimately in societal polygyny, no matter how many women believe their individual polyandry results in societal polyandry. Many people are concerned about the rise of short-term polyamory with the disintegration of marriage, and propose enforced monogamy as a solution including NKL and Jordan Peterson.
