Maybe I would jump. You don't know my life Bill Burr
@RustyFapwagon, shjt fam you ok?

@RustyFapwagon, you always have a backup. Just because the main failed doesn't mean you're screwed.
Maybe if you take the time to be sure you are marrying the right person rather than getting married after a year or so your marriage won't fail.
@Lord Emostabe, amen!
@Lord Emostabe, yep. One of my family's closest friends recently married after only knowing the groom for a few months to a year. They're both the nicest people I've ever met (the guy our friend married is seriously chill dude with a good job.) But we're still worried about them. They're good people.
@Proactive Citizenry , there are always exceptions to the general trend. If they are as good of people as you say they are, I'm sure they will be fine.
@Lord Emostabe, thanks 😊.
@Lord Emostabe, but that would make sense.
@Lord Emostabe, time doesn't always matter. My grandparents got married at 15 & 19 after only a couple months of knowing each other. They were married 62 years, only separated by death. I dated my husband 6 weeks before we got engaged then we were engaged for a year before getting married. So far our marriage is great and I'm pregnant with our first child. I had a teacher who knew the guy 2 weeks before getting married and they're still together 10 years later.
Yeah it's smart to get to know the person first but no amount of time is going to determine that and that's not what keeps a marriage together.
@Prestidigitonium, I know, I just said it was a trend. Now more than not, people rush into marriages before realizing that they can't realistically spend the rest of their life with that person.
@Lord Emostabe, I wish it were that simple but it's not. It's really not. Waiting multiple years to get engaged/married is often not the healthiest choice for a relationship either. Marriage is tough no matter how long you put it off.
@Lord Emostabe, more people seem to like the idea of marriage, but don't want the reality of it.
@Lord Emostabe, my old boss knew her husband for 3 months before they were married. I think they're going on 15 years this year. I married my husband after being together for 11 months. 3 years and 1 baby on the way later, pretty sure that dork is still my soul mate.
@Lord Emostabe, I don't think it's rushing into a marriage completely (it is partly why), but I think it's more people just give up when things get hard. Life's hard. Sometimes you gotta struggle for the good stuff and some people just end it instead of trying to work it out.
@Blanketbic, agreed. My husband and I got married quickly because we were long distance and it was the only way to be together. We were struggling hard before (we loved each other very much, but the distance was crippling), but as soon as we were married everything was just right.
@Prestidigitonium, alternatively, I was dating the same girl for 7 years before we got engaged. It didn't end up working out.
@Prestidigitonium, sweet user name! This is my favorite thing to call people named Preston. :-D
@Who ate my pig, exactly. And there are plenty of couples that are happily married for years before some life changing event comes in. Sometimes things just don't work anymore. Unfortunately.
@Lord Emostabe, I dont know, my parents dated for 3 years before marrying, then waited 4 years to have kids, but after 22 years my mom had quit drinking but my dad wouldn't follow suit and now theyre divorcing. Its nore complex than I explained it, but theres always little things you cant account for. Like, if I hadnt been diabetic, my mom wouldn't have stopped drinking. You just cant predict everything
@Lord Emostabe, I also feel like the same "stupid people are louder now" effect applies, because up until the US army stopped drafting, people would marry solely to avoid the draft. Like, shjttu decisions have been around forever, but I feel like we just have more access to stupidity now, and I also feel that if anything, marriages are a little more based on time/feelings/whatever than in the past. I guess also, theres the entitlement/instant gratification trend or whatever you wanna call it that seems to be growing more and more common
Dropping truth bombs over here. I like it.
That's incorrect, 65% of marriages today are successful.
@Phil Tippet, it's the internet you can make stuff up, trust me I'm a bear shark
@Phil Tippet, thank you! That guys stats are way out of whack
@Phil Tippet, well he IS a comedian
Bill Burr is funny as fvck
His stats are a bit off.
Well marriage is hardly lethal unless you get with crazy.
No, but you don't die if your marriage doesn't work out.
Well, all marriages either end in divorce or death.
@JDPhi, all divorces either end in re-marriage or death. So there.
Jokes on you I'm suicidal so I would jump
Funny but not his actual words
I would get the one with all the silverware and shjt in it.
I'm seeing him live in 10 days and I'm very excited. That is all
@Otto the Otter, he talks to the audience a lot more than in specials
@Dr House, Nice! I will be sure to yell my responses from the back row
That's what a backup is for
D@mn straight! 25% chance of success is better than none.
I feel like that's way different. My fiancé and I just got engaged and we've been together 7 years. That's enough time for us to be pretty sure that our marriage won't fail.
I met and married my husband all in 8 days... Been married to him for 7 years now.
Well, I mean, 1 out 4 marriages end in death
Indeed I would
Hell I'd still jump
For a chance at true love... yes
