Most couples live paycheck to paycheck...a new PS4 would definitely be grounds for an argument.
They're solid middle class though. It's not that bad, and I think you can save a few hundred $ over a fvcking 3 year period my man. Sorry, the anger is not directed at you but the situation.

Making money =/= having money...

I know people who make a lot more than me, but can never afford to go out and do anything because they pay $600 a month for their car payment or pay student loans or have kids which cost a fortune.

Yeah I make good money but have 2 boys, they're expensive af

My last trip to the grocery store was $400, I'm hoping that will last 2 weeks, probably not.

A CHEAP Daycare is $500 per month. Two kids? $1,000 per mon

Then there is healthcare...clothes, toys, etc


Buying a Ferrari would be cheaper

A duel income couple w/o kids can have a lot of fun in the US. Cars, clothes, vacations, eating out regular, etc.

When it comes to kids you have to ask would you rather have fun or love?

There is no wrong answer...

The world has plenty of humans, we don't need more.

I know an older married couple that never had kids...they've traveled the world. That's awesome. People raising kids can get endless joy and fulfillment from that as well, it's just whatever your preference.

Similar thing happened to one of our friends from the squad when we were all 19

He went from hanging out with us all the time to once or twice a year because he got a gf

We all promised to never let a bitch control who we chill with and its been that way ever since and always will be

The secret is, find a bitch to ADD to your squad.

My girlfriend is my best friend. It helps she plays fantasy sports (season long and DFS), and never bitches about anything.

She drinks and talks shit like all my friends do, so when we go out, if she wants to go, shes welcome.

(and not the other way around.)

Not only will she serve all your needs, but she will appreciate you as well.

and you'll never have to ask for permission for anything ever again.



if her last boyfriend catered to all her needs... she will expect the same for you.

always important to find out details of the last relationship to get an idea of where her mindset is at.

you want a chick that is submissive not dominate.



I say this somewhat jokingly... but there's some truth here.

I would hope it's 100% jokingly

If you are looking for a girl to "serve all your needs" that relationship will not last long at all. Guys could get away with that in the 50s, not so much in 2017. If you're looking for someone to cook and clean for you you're going to be looking till you die. Why would you want a slave anyway? That's not a relationship.

What's wrong with finding a sober educated woman who can hold down a job? You two can cook and clean TOGETHER, as an equal parts team. Someone who you can learn and grow from and pushes you to be a better human? That's infinitely more fulfilling than finding someone who was beaten and abused so that they will be happy to do your laundry

For real though, I'm in the same boat I have a best friend who once he got tied down by his partner, he ended up leaving the country with her and have only seen him twice in 5 years. He's had kids now, as do our other friends from school, which I don't yet.


However, I've moved on. I have my fiancÚ and about to get married. Sucks to lose your mate to a chick, but that's part of growing up.

Sounds like a great chick. Where do I find one of those?


Nah, I have a good one. She loathes sport, but she's a best friend and that's what you need.

I don't want a slave... I want a woman that 'gets it'
and there are plenty of them out there that do... and plenty that don't.

The Man wears the pants in the relationship... and ultimately he makes the final decisions.

That is not the case in 2017. Women bark orders at their men as if they are the slave. That's not how it's suppose to be.


Man = provider

Woman = caretaker


and because our society has drifted away from this model... is the reason why we, as men, have to ask for special permission in every decision we make.




You never saw Jack ask his wife if he could go bowling at night... He just went.


"Honey, where are you going?"

"Bowling"... slams door drives off.




Here's a woman that 'gets it':
