Every now and then a blog post writes itself:
“Your commitment to be monogamous is a statement of values, but it is not a statement of nature. Your nature is not monogamous. Your values are monogamous. And that is why values are what we hold to be more important than our feelings.
So it’s not going to happen to you. But I know what you’re asking. But Dennis, how do I know I’m ready to marry when I still find, you know, half the women in the street, and all of the ones in the ads, and on TV, and in movies, so enticing. And the answer is, they will never stop being enticing. So you will never get married if you’re waiting for that magic bullet. The magic bullet doesn’t exist for a man.”
(Dennis Prager said to a male caller in his 20’s on his radio show. He asked Dennis the question why men don’t want to get married.)
A lot of men are waiting for that magic bullet. Well said, Dennis!
