Update 6-10-2013: In the season of June brides, this update might save some unfortunate male from stepping into a huge financial disaster. Specifically, if you can not avoid marriage altogether, at least avoid these type of women:
1. The “Gold Digger.” Listen, usually your family can spot this money grubber a mile away, so why can't you? Ask yourself:
a. Does she seem to make everything about money?
b. Does she light up when something expensive is in front of her?
c. Does she ask a lot about how much money you make?
d. Does she wear expensive shoes, clothes, purse, etc?
e. Does she insist on fine dining?
2. The “Overly Feminine Feminist.” Beware, men hating non-shaving power hungry women are out there and they do want to hurt you. If your future bride belongs to a women's rights groups, run. Run far and fast! Feminism is NOT bad. It is just bad karma for a man to marry a feminist. Men who marry a feminist typically end up miserable because everything they do is criticized and interpreted to somehow oppress women. So if a woman gets mad because you open a door for her or pull out a chair for her because “she can do it herself” then, I repeat, run far and fast.
3. The “Excessively Sensitive.” If every little thing evolves into an argument because you hurt her feelings, then your relationship is doomed from the beginning. A man does not mind occasionally comforting his woman when she actually needs emotional support. However, if every discussion causes her to suffer an emotional crisis, run away. A woman who is too emotionally needy seldom makes a good long term match for a man.
As a man, if you need support in removing a potential ball and chain from your neck, read:
