I see no reason a sane man would marry in this country anymore. So I am to bet you half my earnings forever, that you will love me forever, and if I lose, I lose it all? If I win I get nothing. Meanwhile women are more than happy to shack up with me where I retain all the cards and could kick them out at a moment's notice if I get bored, angry, or just find someone better. Why would I do that? Why would anyone?
