Man-xiety: Why men are afraid of marriage

Men are put off from marriage as they feel it will only be a life of providing and materialism.

Do you really think single women are the only ones stressing about their shrinking marriage options? According to my keen observation, single men in their 30s also face a similar dilemma of wanting to get married.

Men in their 20s continue to live in a bubble where they think they will be young forever. But in their early 30s, they see an old man who has a sound career but is in a relationship which is going nowhere and looks at other men of his age who are already fathers. There comes a point in their life when they worry that if they find a partner now, by the time they get married and start a family, they will probably be 45 when their first child goes to kindergarten. And this sends shrills down their spines. I know men who are in their early 30s and wish they weren’t single. I think it is becoming as stressful for men as it is for single women.

I have a good looking male friend, 29-years-old, who has lost love quite a few times. He has the looks, is well-educated, creative, earns well and is modern but grounded. In short, he has all the traits that are required to be considered a ‘potential marriage candidate’. But he is still single. I know he is scared of being alone and wants someone to love but has been pushed to a verge where he is afraid of commitment now.

After talking to a lot of people, I have concluded a few reasons why men do not get married till after their mid-30s, even if they want to get married much earlier. To be honest and upfront, the main reason for the rise in this predicament is that women have become materialistic. They do not want love and companionship as much as they want someone to pay for their retail therapy, take them out to new restaurants and provide them with a hassle-free lavish life. All you women who are gasping at this statement know that there is some truth to this statement.

Is it really the end of their ‘bachelor life’?

Men do not want to get married because they believe they will have to choose spending time with their wives over their friends. Some are even afraid of marriage, parenthood and the responsibility that comes with it. They delay marriage because they want to settle in their career first as they are afraid they will not be able to pay for the grand wedding, the best wedding photographer, the bride’s Louboutins and Jimmy Choos for the wedding and of course the shaadi ka jora (wedding outfit) which is only worn for a few hours but costs a fortune. They are afraid that after spending, rather wasting, their hard earned money on wedding festivities, they are still expected to buy designer lawns, take pampering holiday trips to Turkey and Malaysia, all because that’s where one of friends went after the wedding and all her friends are wearing Sana Safinaz and Asim Jofa lawn outfits.

Ladies, it’s time to come up with a new check list

I don’t know how to put this but the checklist women have for their eligible partner is disturbing and trivial. They want to know how much money he makes so that they can calculate the number of shoes and bags that will be piling up in their closet. It’s like it has become a ‘shortcut’ to a lavish lifestyle they’ve been accustomed to or dream of. I know having a good education and sufficient earning is essential but that is not what I am referring to.

Women’s priorities have changed. From the times when it used to be about finding a decent man who could provide you with stability, love and care, it has now become about how much he can provide. And for this very reason, men have now become unsure of the whole constitution of marriage and question its very foundation. Even though the women they end up marrying sincerely love them and are good wives, men sometimes wonder if it’s because of what they can provide is why the marriage is working. And looking at the check list, men are put off from marriage as they feel it will only be a life of providing and materialism.

A wedding to be remembered

Men these days think twice before getting married especially when it comes to affording a marriage, monetarily not responsibility wise. Some men even end up postponing their marriage plans so that they are able to afford the wedding ceremony the wife-to-be and her family so desires.

Everything is new to them also

Men are afraid of losing their personal space too. Yes, given the fact that it is the woman who leaves everything behind and moves into the guy’s house but we also need to understand that he has to share his room and his space with someone else, something which he hasn’t done in a while since he shared a room with his college roommate. Also, men aren’t used to answering to their mothers about their activities or what time they’re coming home. All of that suddenly changes, and every action has to be justified.

So give him time to become accustomed to this new relationship and change. Stop asking questions and keeping a track of what time he left work, how long the drive from work was and what time he came home.

As a wife, one also needs to respect his family and his family values. He already has to constantly prove to his family, and mother in specific, that his love for them has not changed just because he has an additional important person in his life. He has been living in the same house with the same people for approximately three decades. So, try to understand his situation and cut him some slack instead of taunting the person that his priorities need to be altered.

Yes, we live in a male dominated society and men have more prospective options than women do, but it does not change the fact that men do not want to stay single and ‘be in a relationship’ forever. Woman need to realise that they are educated and can earn and live on their own. If they are looking for marriage and someone who they happily want to spend the rest of their lives with, it should solely be for partnership and love, not for his money.

    Nice article. It reflects a common viewpoint on the issue. I think if a man accepts his emotional and financial obligations in a marriage relationship and is ready for marriage he should do it soon. I am in my 28 and i agree with the author of being single is not easy. Personally i think there should be balance in society and not being male or female dominated. We have a complete religion, we dont need to experiment rather follow in true sense.Recommend

    How will afford her expenses? What about my personal timing of sleeping anytime regardless of when I have to wake up in the monring? What about my personal activities? What about my Gaming room plan? And blah blah.

    Marriage is and will always be a functional relationship…..By a functional relationship I mean that both partners are destined or assigned some tasks which they need to do to keep the relation functional or working……..love, emotions and feelings take a back seat….
    We should also see the phenomena of unmarried men and women in theirs thirties or forties not because they have been unable to find non-materialistic partners but it could be a conscious or unconscious decision as well…May be they see marriage as futile and they could have a more fulfilling life as singles….Recommend

    So this friend attractive friend of yours, is he a) a feminist, b) an atheist or agnostic and c) politically leftist, and d) politically correct? Because despite your stereotyping about what you think women want in a man, based on your limited social circle which is not any kind of representative of the vast population of women, this particular female has only four points on her checklist. My very existence proves that your blog is fallacious, but if you hook me up with that nice, cute friend of yours, I’ll forgive you. Oh also, I dislike militant atheists, because if I wanted that, I’d find a militant mullah, you know? I like my atheist boys to be tolerant of other religions and cultures. Oh also, being a feminist doesn’t mean liking women who work but making rape jokes and slutshaming women who wear skirts, so be careful about that as well.Recommend

    In a society where the male is the breadwinner of the family, women will expect males to win MORE bread. End that role and this mindset will end. If men want pretty wives to keep around, wives want men who can afford them. In a sick way, it’s a fair system. End this system, and it can change. BOTH ways. Not just on one side.Recommend

Every woman/man needs to work without using their father’s / husband’s money as a crutch. God gives and God takes and He questions.Recommend

    LOL amazing. Amazing. This is truly AMAZING. What sort of poll did you conduct to determine these statistics, Amna Mishal? Did you ask women what they want these days? And “Men do not want to get married because they believe they will have to choose spending time with their wives over their friends. Some are even afraid of marriage, parenthood and the responsibility that comes with it. ” Wow. Men like these need a reality check. With family comes responsibility. If they want a good family, they will HAVE to do all this. These sort of men need to GROW UP if they want to get married. Just because they are afraid of all the work they are hiding being stupid excuses such as O WOMEN ARE AFTER MY MONEY? Are you one of these women? Is that why you are soo convinced most women are turning materialistic? Do you really think you are thinking out of the box by publishing this article? Did you stop to think women like this might exist but MAYBE, JUST MAYBE THEY ARENT IN MAJORITY? Didnt think so. Women still want love and compassion and understanding. I am with girls all the time. All sorts of them. And hardly any of them want a shortcut to money. Life is is miserable if you have a husband who doesnt understand even if you do have money. Women arent blind. They see that. And they have emotions too.

    I hope you realize you cant say MAJORITY unless you have legitimate research and statistics instead of assumptions and asking around a few men who cant grow up and are stuck in the past.Recommend

    I completely agree.. points well made.. I don’t know if its a coincidence or I am being surrounded by some really nice men, but what I have experienced is that men are more compromising and giving in relationships. But ironically speaking their issues never get highlighted, even if they are facing something and discuss it with someone they are advised in a way “You are a man, deal with it”. In my career life I have always heard a sentence from working women that “its a man’s world”, but honestly as far as families and relationships are concerned “its a woman’s world”.Recommend

  • Just Married.

  • Ameena

    An interesting topic to write about but I find it a little exaggerated. A very small percentage of women is materialistic. Very small indeed. 90% of them need companionship and a secure relationship which is becoming scant innour society. Trying to be unbiased about men, you have become biased about women. It’s not that bad. Recommend

  • Female Power

    one sided article honestly, i agree it is a big big big responsibility to add someone to ones life, but this thing goes both ways, sacrifices need to be made by both the wife and the husband, things change for both of them, and plus in today’s day and age…women do not need men to fulfill their needs, at least women like us who have a say and know what they want from life, i believe women who work to fulfill their wants shouldn’t marry a man lesser than her, a man who can not afford her Louboutins and Jimmy Choos doesn’t deserve her if she can buy those herself.

    PS – men are not scared of marriage, they are just scared that they would have to end their flings and be loyal to only one woman.Recommend

    I am Indonesian, but I often discuss with Pakistani people including discuss about getting married. Yes, I have met many Pakistani men who still unmarried although their age are older than mine when I got married, and even their financial abilities are better than mine when I got married.

    I found a similarity, men in Indonesia and Pakistan start their career in 20’s age with low income, and reach financial stability in 30’s age. However, Indonesian men get married when they just started their career, and when they reach financial stability they already being a husband or even father. While Pakistani men prefer to delay their marriage until they reach their financial stability.

    I’ve ever asked those Pakistani men why should they wait until being wealthy only to get married?. And without intention to offend Pakistani women, their answer was “Unlike Indonesian women, Pakistani women are not willing to marry a man with low income”.

    I don’t know if it’s true or not. But this is the answer that I got from Pakistani men.Recommend

As for your continous rant about how much the wedding costs the guy, every wedding Ive been to since a kid has cost more to the brides family than the grooms. And finally, women DO NOT look at their husbands as their personal atm cards and how many jimmy choos he can buy her. I actually am insulted you would generalize this statementRecommend

    Best answer ever. As a married twenty six year old with a baby, I agree. I have done masters, worked and can afford to sustain myself financially but I choose to be a housewife and look after my kid, yes with lots of help and vacations abroad for breaks but hey, my husband wanted a pretty wife. he got it, I wnated a great lifestyle and pampering, it’s a win win. Yes I do agree it is fair because it’s not as if I married any guy who could give me a lavish lifestyle. Hubby and I do have emotional and mental compatibility, understanding, physical attraction. We discuss his work, household matters, feelings, politics, world affairs, sports, even petty stuff. So yeah if men want pretty, well groomed wives who manage their house, get along with their family, are eudcated and smart and able to understand their work, socially fit in with their peers and raise their kids well, we want companionship as well as financial and emotional stability. Fair exchange. Doesnt mean love doesn’t exist in the relationship.Recommend

  • Arsha

    – what proportion of women in Pakistan would even know what jimmy choos is? I have hardly known any women who marry for money – it’s always good education, open minded family, stable career and decent character that are the considerations.
    – when most marriages are arranged then the decisions would be and should be based on practical considerations. When personal compatibility is not known then anyone would try to find ingredients that would minimise potential of discomfort and conflict. Goes both ways.
    – in a society where women are not encouraged to be independent, be financially secure, and make their own decisions in life, where instead of being taught to build their own identity they are expected to be subservient and always dependent on men, where marriage is given priority over the effort to build stable careers – why else would you expect anything different ?

    Marriage for men in America is incredibly risky these days. Too many men I know, including myself, have gotten screwed over in divorce court – my wife left me for another man ( it didn’t work out) and now I am paying her a tax-free child support check every month used for trivial things like kitchen upgrades and replacing her blinds. I don’t even date anymore – most western women have attitude problems and aren’t even feminine these days. The juice isn’t worth the squeeze anymore. Recommend

  • Farah Samuel

    Couldn’t agree more. Having said that, I still believe there’s a dearth of decent and rational men out there because to what I have observed is that many men or their mothers too have turned to be way too materialistic either in monetary terms or in terms of a girl’s physical appearance.Recommend

  • ISBWMN

    very very generalized.. maybe you need to hang out with people who value companionship and love over money, or just learn to accept other people’s views better. Most of my married friends are just ok financially or maybe even struggling a little. Not all of the wives work, not all of them married for love, and some of them have multiple children. But I have never heard any of them be materialistic, complain about their husbands or desperately want some bag or lawn ka jora. Maybe you need to surround yourself with better people.
    Also, there is nothing wrong with materialistic girls, everyone has their own preferences, and you really don’t have a right to judge someone’s reason for marriage.
    If guys are suddenly looking for “true love” in their mid 30s maybe they need to stop generalizing and asking ppl to set them up and put themselves out there. No one finds love by not taking risks and evaluating someone based on their “checklist” of reasons to get married.Recommend

    The biggiest snooze fest I read all week. Women are materialistic? Oh really? Having turned down 3 different “valayati”, well-settled, good-looking and decent enough suitors (two of them being “nand-les”, a sacred prize in our society no less) in search of some one I am more compatible and comfortable with I find this HIGHLY OFFENSIVE. Half my family is mad at me for having this “fairytale fantasy of love” and wasting away my “shaadi ki umar” and turning down perfectly good rishtas only to be judged by other women for being materialistic? I hate to imagine what those men thought then?! Talk about proverbial gender solidarity! Pure, utter garbage! Keep your generalizations to yourself and save us the over-dramatization!

    ”Men are afraid of losing their personal space too. Yes, given the fact that it is the woman who leaves everything behind and moves into the guy’s house but we also need to understand that he has to share his room and his space with someone else, something which he hasn’t done in a while since he shared a room with his college roommate.”

    In case you are forgetting its the girl who has to get accustomed to the wholly new surrounding as opposed to the guy. you think sharing unoccupied space on the bed and closet is a big deal? what about leaving your family, life style and most importantly your comfort zone behind? making peace with the abnormalities of the household/lifestyle of the ‘victimized’ husband is not an easy task either. leaving behind your passion, your career, your hobbies is what represents majority of the scenarios as opposed to the one you have sketched in your article which is according to me representative of meagre 0.1% of the scenarios. Moreover, about not giving enough personal space works vice versa more often. its the guy who limits and keeps checks on the girl’s activity most of the time. hence, i find this article absolutely irrational. please do a thorough research before publishing something on a public forum.Recommend
