Getting Married

December 14, 2011

One of the managers I work with, Tom, was a big player in college, until he met his current wife.  He saw her across the bar and told his frat brothers “That’s the one, I’m getting her.”  And he got her.  The first few months of their relationship were rocky.  Girls from Tom’s past tried to sabotage his new relationship.  Any player has some crazy girls lurking in the background, just waiting to pounce.  Tom recognized a good thing, “she’s just so nice”, so he fought to keep his new girlfriend and he eventually married her.  They now have 2 daughters, the player’s curse.

If you get a drink or two in Tom and start talking about relationships, he’ll tell you his true feelings.

Dude: I’ve been with my girlfriend for 2 years, it’s semi-serious.
Tom:  No!  Don’t be serious at all, you’re missing out man.  Don’t get married.  You’re too young to get married.
Dude:  Aren’t you married?
Tom:  Don’t take me as an example.  Yes, I’m married.  I’m happy.  I’m just saying you’re too young.  Wait until you’re 30.

It was hard not to laugh at this.  I read Tom as a former player pretty soon after meeting him.  Tom was an early bloomer in game, but he got out young; he met his wife when he was about 20.  He’s clearly happy with his wife and kids, but he knows he gave up a lot for them.  Consider that Tom was a poor undergrad when he met his wife.  He then went on to make good money in finance before coming to my company.  If he were single, he could leverage that bank roll into some serious panties, at least he thinks so.  The truth is, with the right game you can live like a starving artist and still get laid.  The girls who hold out for money aren’t any more attractive than the ones who don’t.  What would Tom’s life had been like if he didn’t get married?

    Marriage is practical when both men and women want to keep the real quality of marriage.
