I want to start by stating, I have nothing against marriage. I believe that if women want to marry, including myself, she/we should take the best deal available and nothing less. However, with so many women on my TL's sharing screenshots like the one I will below, why are women doing the absolute most (changing everything about themselves, placing their life goals/dreams on hold) for a cheap thrill? Wives are dropping the tea daily, and many of us still double down and do everything possible to land one of these man babies as partners. I would never pretend I have all the answers, however I do know that women (mostly those in my personal circle) never bother to negotiate the terms of a sexual and romantic relationship with a man in the beginning stages. Even now, I negotiate like hell. No exceptions.
