Married men take a lot of shots in popular culture. Commercials, movies and sitcoms frequently represent married men as bumbling, ineffective, screwups, suffering under the judgmental eye of their all-knowing wives. Every day, married guys are told that they’ve given up their freedom or that they’ve been emasculated. But you know what? Married men don’t actually mind all the ribbing. They can take the jokes from the media, and from all of their immature, misogynistic friends. They can handle it all because, in truth, they know they have it far better than the single guys do.
You may think that marriage is for suckers, but we’re here to give your head a shake. In fact, we’ll bet that most of you, if interrogated privately away from your binge-drinking bachelor buddies, wouldn’t hesitate to admit that deep down you hope to get married someday. And that’s a good thing, because being married is ultimately better than being single – and not just because Tory leader David Cameron is looking to offer married couples tax breaks.
We can prove it. Elsewhere on this site, Justin Jackson has put together a list of the Top 10: Reasons Not To Get Married, but his list will tremble in fear before the indisputable correctness of my Top 10: Reasons To Get Married.
