Every time I meet someone, they are always surprised that I live by myself. Why wouldn't I? I just don't believe in co-habitation and my mother always told me that once a man lives with you; he'll never marry you.
Women want to debate that marriage doesn't mean anything and it's just a piece of paper. Well, that piece of paper is a contract. Meaning...a marriage is bound to its terms; enforceable by law. The Bible refers to a man and wife as "of one flesh", wives are "entitled." You are his next of kin and anything that he owns and vice versa, is transferred. Girlfriends only get screwed and disposed of.
Do what you do, but you get what you settle for in life.
I just don't understand women these days who barely even know a man. OK, you go out on a few dates, hang out and develop affection for one another, but now, six months later, you think it's ok to live together?
Women who settle for this, in my opinion, regardless of the lip service they give; simply don't value themselves, and opt for a piece of a relationship rather than being "honored" by a man and asked to be his wife. He's giving you his name and promising to be committed to you for life--if the marriage lasts. Marriage is what you make it. Both have to contribute fully.
Relationships are treated like Kleenex these days. Just use and toss.
Family is sacred and the foundation of society and all one has to do is just look at the current state of our nation.
Every father wants to walk his daughter down the aisle and properly transfer his greatest love to the man whom he approves and trusts to treat his daughter as he has raised her. A good father teaches his daughter how a man is supposed to treat a woman. Charity begins at home and if a woman wants to be considered a treasure; she must first realize that she is a "gift" to her husband.
