RLB post. (Women don't comment or read...well at least don't comment)
I have a brother that is mid thirties and unmarried. He seems to have no desire to marry. He had his heart broken by a woman when he was early twenties. I don't know all the details and only he and she would. I do know that he is like many other men younger than me. They WILL NOT get married.
They see no benefit to the idea. The utilitarian part of me agrees. Men, the deck is stacked against you in this culture. There is nothing logical to encourage you to participate in this charade of marriage as defined by our society. However, if you are a Christian, it is worth pursuing.
Don't grow weary. Pray and trust God will provide that which you can't imagine. I have an awesome marriage...today. Quit thinking life is supposed to be easy. I don't intend this to be a, "man-up" message. If you view it that way, by all means, call me out. If you are going to take back the mantle of leadership, it will start with the family. If it takes Roissy-type stuff to acquire the wife you are looking for, then do it. Embrace the ugly that is our situation and storm the beach.
