Here's yet ANOTHER tale of horror from a young, Canadian bachelor. Here's yet another lucky guy who dodged a bullet! JackofClubs is a member of Happy Bachelors, and his story is must read material. Read this story, 'The Ring', by JackofClubs, Fellas! Read it and weep; or I should say read it and rejoice, because he dodged the bullet of marriage to a modern skank. Without any further ado, here's 'The Ring', by JackofClubs...
My name is Brian. I'm a 31 year old, self proclaimed jack-of-all-trades IT guy from Ontario, Canada.
I'm sure I mirror a good number of folks when I say the following: I once bought into the great lie that women could do no wrong, and that men should be made to perpetually made to suffer for anything possible, imagined or real. I opened my eyes when I started to notice a trend: The deceit, lack of accountability and decadence that the 'fairer' sex seems to thrive on at other peoples expense, and the agenda to allow it to continue.
The above really started to resonate with me during a downturn in a once happy relationship with my last girlfriend. The downturn consisting of the final three months where I would endure discussions about 'the ring'. I suppose named as such because 'fancy shackle for two months pay' wasn't as catchy sounding. Of course, at the time, I would have happily obliged that request, if it was allowed to be done on my terms (i.e. make it a surprise) rather than make it seem like it was out of servitude. That decision alone saved me from marriage; because she never gave me enough time to make it a surprise. 'The ring' discussion came up constantly, and I soon grew resentful that it wasn't the 'I want to spend the rest of my life with you' discussion or 'I am madly in love with you discussion'. Nope, just an endless loop of her talking about a golden loop. It wasn't long before my eyes flew open and I realized the painful truth: I had become a walking wallet.
Then my eyes opened up to some other painful realities: Divorce and how it can absolutely jeopardize the livelihood and good health of someone completely not at fault.
Needless to say I had enough. One messy breakup later and I still consider myself one lucky bachelor who dodged a bullet. It's been well over one year since then and I feel like i'm seeing the world through different eyes now. I've since sworn off investing anything of significance in the opposite sex. Not out of hatred, mind you, but out of necessity. Society has engineered a situation that propagates the ruination of any man who buys into 'ideal love' (ie marriage). With that knowledge, marriage has become nothing more than a divorce from logic... ...and so, that brings me here.
Hope you have room for one more.
