Only get married if you both want kids. And you have a prenup. And you have a backup plan when she gets the prenup voided.
People above were complaining about comparing the priest trials to what they go through in marriage hell.
If you've ever been stuck in a dead bedroom for any length of time you'll realize how much a woman can literally have you by the balls with no way out especially you're a man with a healthy libido. It's hell...especially if you are a decent guy who refuses to cheat.
Modern career women on BC and with permanent access to Chads on their cell phones hold all the cards in the sexual game. Truly the only way to win is to not get married and not give a crap about any of them. Maybe you'll get lucky but she'll always have the upper hand in todays world.
I agree with your last paragraph, but obviously don't marry a modern career woman. I thought that was a given, at least here at RVF.
I managed to divorce my first wife without a prenup and "only" gave her my car and almost all of my stuff and my money. It was relatively cheap and I knew I could recover from it financially. In my opinion, marrying a devout Catholic who takes the idea that she only gets one marriage seriously is better than a prenup, but I don't know how reliable that advice is with most American Catholics. My wife is from Latin America, where they seem to play by the (Catholic) rules much more literally.
