RE: Post-nuptial shutoff?
What a thread.

It's kind of strange how much of this thread is about sex. I havn't gotten laid in almost three years and I could care less. Who can't take care of themselves sexually?

The scary thing is that it sounds like so many people get married because of mistaking the sexual connection for more than it is.

I've long thought now that a marriage ought to be a 7 year contract. Our lives tend to go in 7-8 year cycles, and if you want to share a cycle with somebody, that's awesome, make the committment. But it's natural for our brains to want maximal stimulation/growth, so to think your growth won't be stunted by being tied to somebody seems unrealistic, and for many that will lead to feelings of resentment, right?

I look at my family members that I resemble most, who are very independent minded and needs lots of time alone, and I just don't think we're built for marriage.
