Talk about blackpilled. Going from reading redbeard’s thread to reading this thread is giving me two very different outlooks on marriage. Was thinking of getting married in my late 20s, can anyone give guidance on this? God bless.
Be content with yourself and stay single. Comfort your friends who decide to get married (that is, if they're allowed to have friends after marriage) once they are miserable.
If you make the mistake of getting married, bail when she shows signs of insanity or if she starts pulling you away from your family and friends. She sees you as her property alone and she don't want to share you.
If you make the mistake of getting married and have a kid or more than one kid, commit to raising that child(ren) as best you can and don't be the one to end the marriage. Kids need both parents to remain married until they become young adults. Pour all your energy into parenthood and be the kind of dad they can always count on for wisdom, guidance and security. Accept that your kid's needs are greater than yours. They are the cross you must carry daily. Don't spoil them. Teach them responsibility, perseverance and respect. Stay with their mother until your minimal fatherly obligation is met (18 years of age/graduate high school). After that, bail if you feel like it.
If you find yourself a single parent, under no circumstances should you re-marry. Stay single and commit your life to them until the youngest turns 18. Fight to have more time with them and don't let up. They'll need you.
