Men stereotypes... and Babel fish!

First off, may I say that I am having one of those moments of regret for not having picked up The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy sooner.

BABEL FISH. *Dies* Oh, how many more discoveries will I make that I never realized were due to this wonderful piece of fiction!

Okay, now that that's out of the way, let's talk about a growing pet peeve of mine...

'Afraid to Commit: Young Men Want to Wait on Marriage'

It's articles like this that just piss me off. Gods, it seems that every other week on there's some article about men and how they're scared of commitment. "Oh noes, marriage! I have a penis! RUN."

There was only one positive thing to note about this entire article. And that's what this woman had to say:

"The article 'Afraid to Commit: Young Men Want to Wait on Marriage' makes all women sound like they are desperate to "hook" a man! It insinuates that this is all women live for and men have total reign over this. Please get with the times!"


Fact: Men in studies have been found to be happier in marriages than women.

Fact: Divorced men have a higher chance of remarrying than divorced women. (Of course, the chances of divorce increase each marriage...)

Fact Jung found that when women first marry they go through a 'small death'. A sort of mini depression, if you will.

Maybe you people who write these articles should consider writing a new article. In fact, let me help you out with a title: 'Afraid to Commit: As Financial Dependency Dissolves, How Many Women Will Say 'I Do'?.'

    If you're not caught up on How I Met Your Mother, don't watch this! Also... I so need a Barney LJ icon.
