Because it’s weird that in our culture, for some reason, marriage is something thrust upon women. Like boys get to spend six months deciding if they want to get married but then the girl only has like 10 seconds to say yes or no?

This has been bothering me for a while. If a woman takes longer than 10 seconds to say yes, it is automatically assumed that she doesn’t want to. I have no problem with divorce, but if you marry someone you should be planning on forever (60+ years).
