On first glance, it seems like married men might be a dying breed, as more and more Canadian men are deciding that the whole thing just isn’t for them. Commercials, movies and sitcoms frequently represent married men as bumbling screw-ups, suffering under the judgemental eye of their all-knowing wives. Every day, married guys are told that they’ve given up their freedom or that they’ve been emasculated. But you know what? Married men don’t mind all the ribbing. They can take the jokes from the media, and from all of their immature, misogynistic friends. They can handle it all because, in truth, they know they have it way better than the single guys do.
You may think that marriage is for suckers, but we’re here to give your head a shake. In fact, we’ll bet that most of you, if interrogated privately away from your binge-drinking bachelor buddies, wouldn’t hesitate to admit that deep down you hope to get married someday. And that’s a good thing, because being married is ultimately way better than being single.
We can prove it. Elsewhere on this site, Justin Jackson has put together a list of the Top 10: Reasons Not To Get Married, but his list will tremble in fear before the indisputable correctness of my Top 10: Reasons To Get Married.
1.Marriage makes you a better man
If you’re a smart guy, you’ll choose to be with a woman who is insightful, opinionated and honest. That’s the kind of companion who can make you a better person. She can bring out the best in you. She can challenge you to be the best version of yourself. On top of that, through marriage you’ll learn the true meaning of self-sacrifice and compromise. In short, marriage will make you a Better Man.
2.Married people are happier
A recent study done at an Australian university shows that married men are happier than single men. In fact, married men are 135% more likely to report a high happiness score than single men. That’s an astounding figure.
Marriage offers a man the kind of stability and support that allows him to succeed in all other aspects of life. Think about it: How much more could you accomplish if all the drama from crazy women and bad breakups was replaced by the presence of a loving and caring partner?
