This is a nice post attacking the cultural myths of marriage, as delivered by TV. Which deserves to get done. Marriage, as presented by our culture, is an awful no-fun trap that no man would ever want to be in, which is so fucking far from the truth. Marriage is awesome. It's the best thing I've ever done.
Anil Dash has already said it pretty well below, so I'll spare y'all my diatribe on this:
* It's fun! You've got somebody you like who goes with you wherever you go, and it's someone who knows your sense of humor and what kind of food you like and what makes you laugh. BFF!
* It doesn't have to be full of bullshit and drama like your single life. None of that "I don't know if this is what I really want." or "It's not you, it's me." idiocy. You're in there, you're up for the task, and things can just work smoothly every day if you let them. Awesome.
* It reduces your sense of obligation. You get an instant get-out-of-jail-free card for any event or external commitment that you don't want to go to, whether for legitimate reasons or not. You can just talk about how an obligation to your spouse and family takes precedence over whatever else is going on, and any reasonable person has to concede that your absence is justified.
