The thought scares the shit out of me, and it's probably not why you're thinking. It has nothing to do with wanting to sport fuck multiple women or a fear of monogamy. In and of itself, I have no problem with monogamy; it's the ensuing effects that bother me. I just see having a family as the end of all excitement and hope in your life. It's the end of individuality. It's the end of all your dreams. The only excitement or dreams you have afterwards will be vicariously experienced through your kids. Autonomy is over. You will have to consider your family in everything that you do, and even ask your spouse's permission. And then there's the control. Your spouse could totally fuck your world if he/she decides to by divorcing you or cheating on you. I'm talking emotionally, psychologically and financially. That is not the kind of power I'm comfortable handing over to anyone. Of course, then there's the more base things that scare the shit out of me... I fear getting fat, old, unattractive, having my wife get fat, old and unattractive. I fear not having money to spend on myself, and constantly stressing about having enough money to provide for the kids. There's the reality of not having a model family, and actually not getting along with or despising your wife or kids. All of the above for what? So people will stop asking when you're going to get married? I just can't see why in the hell I'd do it, and the idea of getting married freaks me out.
