On Marriage:

I see a lot of status updates and photo uploads on facebook these days dealing with marriage. People getting engaged or friends posting drunk pics from wedding receptions. It's all so, sickening. ha.

I don't know. Part of me sees marriage like this:

as a necessary evil needed to advance/function in society.

Then I remember that even the best of relationships can quickly sour and transform into something like this as soon as marriage enters the equation:


Some might say I'm being overtly negative/pessimistic regarding my views on marriage. To this I say, you're right. Long term relationships and the concept of love are great and all, but I'm just not too thrilled about being a legally bound indentured servant once that ring goes on the finger.

If I do ever decide to walk the plank and get hitched, I hope I'll be lucky enough to have a strong and lasting marriage like my hero down below. He makes it seem oh so easy.

  3. Bill Clinton is the God of Marriage. I was at a wedding recently actually. I'm not massively sure where I stand on the whole marriage thing, part of me would like to do it, but also part of me does just see it as a piece of paper. Marriage just ain't what it used to be.

  5. Bill Clinton is such a legend. Nice videos too, thanks for sharing this man. Marriage sounds unappealing for me right now. Maybe in the future though...

  7. It's just a piece of paper that complicates the hell out of something that's pretty simple. "Hey wanna live together?".

  11. I say if love is real, the legalese wouldn't matter in the long run.

  12. I got divorced a couple weeks ago. :P

    I think marriage is a lot more work than people realize, and that people rush into it.
