Men Prefer Bachelorhood to Bad Marriage
Breaking News from Reuters: Men don’t like bad marriages.
Bachelor Carl Weisman got fed up of being classified as a playboy, a loser or a commitment-phobe so he set out to find out exactly why he and a growing number of eligible men were steering clear of marriage. Weisman, 49, conducted a survey of 1,533 heterosexual men to research a book aiming to give women an insight into why some smart, successful men opted to stay single — and help lifelong bachelors understand why they are still the solo man at parties.
He concluded that most men were not afraid of marriage — but they were afraid of a bad marriage. “Men are 10 times more scared of marrying the wrong person than of never getting married at all,” Weisman told Reuters in a telephone interview.
If this sells, I’m going to pitch a book explaining why men prefer watching football games while sipping a cold one to doing yardwork in the hot sun. Indeed, this could spawn a whole series of books drawing incredibly obvious conclusions.
