Is anyone else a little annoyed with the man not wanting to get married sentiment when it comes to marriage?

Now let me start off by saying yes these cake toppers are funny and cute but why is it always this way? It is 2019. Finding these in reverse is damn near impossible lol and honestly if he views marriage as a trap its probably not the type of guy I would want to marry. It's not the end of life lol....

And what men really think it is that are actually getting married? I hope very few. Granted, most women plan the wedding and most men dont care that much and would be happy with a tiny ceremony but hopefully they at least both equally want to be married in the end. I just dont like this. And people always say "you're finally gonna be off the market" "arent you scared this is the only woman you're ever gonna be with forever?" "You better enjoy the sex now because you won't be getting any after you're married." And to the woman "you finally caught him" "wow! You got him to settle down" "you're finally getting married"
Just to be clear, none of this has been said to me or him but we only just got engaged. but I know this stuff gets said because I've heard it all.
It's just annoying at this point in 2019 lol sorry had to rant.

    Uuugghh I so agree. I do not love the semi-jokey patriarchal wedding culture/industry. I was reminded recently that back in the day, it was not custom for a woman to have a bachelorette party, but totally custom for the guy to have a bachelor party. This was because the groom was seen as the one who was giving up his single / fun life and needed a last hurrah. Now they’re mostly just about having a good time with your buddies/girlfriends, but yes. Those wedding toppers just seem like a remnant of the past.

    Exactly! I usually feel sorry for the couple and wonder how they're together if this is their mentality.

    I never liked this, either, and feel it's kind of rude. Of course, he's off the market (for example) he found the LOVE of his life. Don't berate us for it. UGH!

    I totally understand your rant.
