I do have some radical views on marriage. I'm kind of against it, but I have no problem with other people doing it. I just don't like the pressure society puts you under for not being married after a certain age. I'm in my late 20s and I definitely feel the pressure to get married. In a way I kind of want to, but I really don't think any marriage will work out for me. Number one, I'm crazy, I have extreme views and I have trouble finding girls as intellectual as I am. Most girls aren't into science, politics and religion.

The way I feel about marriage is this analogy: We've all had deep arguments with the people in our lives, our friends, parents, coworkers etc. Now imagine yourself at that point when you were in the middle of a ferocious argument with that person and someone ran up to you and asked you to sign a contract to promise to hate this person for ever and ever. You would think that's ridiculous because you know that you will eventually not be as angry with that person after some time has passed. I see marriage as being that ridiculous. Asking me to sign a life long legally binding contract based on an emotion like hate, or love I think is ridiculous. Love and hate are emotions that are are temporary and wane with time. Marriage is til death do you part.

I mean I do believe in love and being faithful to one person, but I don't like the idea of expecting it to last forever. I like the middle ground between being with one person forever and ever and being a player. It's hard to explain like a lot of stuff is.
