Why Get Married? – Part 1

We just want to say congratulations to
Taraji P.Henson who just announced->>[APPLAUSE]>>On Instagram that she’s engaged.
>>Yeah.>>Taraji wrote that she almost passed out when her fiance, Kelvin Hayden,
proposed and that she is now hashtag officially off the market.
>>[APPLAUSE]>>Congratulations, girl. You deserve it. [CROSSTALK]
>>[APPLAUSE] He’s handsome, too.>>Very handsome.>>Very handsome.>>I can’t wait to learn more about them together. Now, one woman who’s waiting on
a ring of her own is Jennifer Lopez. And recently, Tonight Show host,
Jimmy Fallon, had J.Lo’s beau,
Alex Rodriguez, on the show. [COUGH] And pressed the baseball star
about when he was gonna propose. Alex is feeling the pressure lately
due to JLo’s new song El Anillo which is about a woman who wants to
know if she’ll ever get an engagement ring from her significant other.
>>Take some water.
>>[LAUGH]>>Are you choking?>>I’m choking for you Marcell, hold on.>>Take a little water.>>[LAUGH]>>It’s the late nights.
>>Yeah.>>[LAUGH]>>[APPLAUSE]>>You want me to do it?>>No.>>I read the song and I go, babe, it sounds like they’re talking about us.
This is what Alex was saying about the song and she says,
yeah, they made it for me. And when Fallon flat out asked
A-Rod where the ring is, he said, when it happens Jimmy
you’ll be the first to know. So ladies, do you think it’s okay for a woman to give her man a little nudge
when it comes to popping the question? Or could that end up
backfiring real quick?>>[CROSSTALK]>>I think it backfires, that’s just me personally. I like the idea of a man really
wanting to make you his bride. I love that, I love that. I want to marry you.
>>[APPLAUSE]>>I love the idea of him pursuing that dream. I also think that it’s more common for
women to want to get married than for men. That’s just my opinion.
>>Yeah.>>You kinda hear that more often that women are like, I wanna get married,
I wanna get married, I wanna get married. I think you should let the man
take that lead in that. Because I low key think they
gotta wanna marry you more. They gotta really want it cuz I think
innately sometimes women are just more prone to wanting to be in a marriage. When a man is like I
desperately want to marry, I am going to die if I don’t marry you, I
think there’s something really dope about that.
>>I just don’t see.

About the author


  1. Yeah I agree with Adrian once again. I would rather you really wanting to marry and you take the lead than me having to “hey come on, when are we gonna do this thing?” But I think it’s ok to eles ask when…especially if your the type of person that has been in a loooooooooooooooooooong relationship! But then again I always hear people say when you know,🤷🏽‍♀️ you know 😏😏 so no rush just chill out and relax!!💆🏽‍♀️💆🏽‍♀️💆🏽‍♀️💆🏽‍♀️💆🏽‍♀️💆🏽‍♀️💆🏽‍♀️💆🏽‍♀️💆🏽‍♀️💆🏽‍♀️💆🏽‍♀️💆🏽‍♀️💆🏽‍♀️💆🏽‍♀️💆🏽‍♀️💆🏽‍♀️🍛🍛🍛🍛

  2. Oh my It’s not about money Loni!!So what they both have a lot of of it…what’s money got to do with it???? Why be in a relationship and not wanna get married…See that’s why some men feel the way they feel about women. I know y’all heard the saying why buy the whole cow when you can get the milk for free!!!! I mean maybe she has given away some milk for free (no offence to her😁) but maybe she’s tired now and she want a MARRIAGE!!!!! A real commitment!!!

  3. Adrienne’s idea is sooooo antiquated and old – fashioned. Today’s marriage and relationship requires 100% of each person; it is not lopsided OR controlled by either party. She is setting up the relationship for failure and abuse of power. She wants to follow the man, rather than have it be a 100%/100% true partnership. Sit down , Adrienne!

  4. J LOL seems to love the idea of getting married but as soon as things get real she is out. She wants to be another Elizabeth Taylor without the class. How many step dads are her kids gonna go through ?

  5. Of course women want to get married. The second a man says "I do" we lose everything if it doesn't work out. Marriage is not something men want much anymore.

  6. I need tamers hair stylist in my life I have the same hair texture but don’t know what to do with my hair it’s so frustrating I might just shave it all off 🙄🙄😩🤷🏽‍♀️

  7. That is such stupid advice. Why should the man have all the say in the relationship? Should a woman just wait and watch her life as a wife and then a mom slip further and further away because of a boyfriend who's taking his sweet time just out of outdated sexist courtesy? I don't think so.

  8. #1 J-Lo has been married several times and divorced several times. Maybe she just needs to live with him and that's that until they think its time.

  9. J-Lo is amazing, but if I were her bf how intimidating would it be to ask her with her track record? Like reaaallllly? What’s the rush, see if it’s real love first that’ll last!

  10. It's a very desperate move for a woman to keep pushing her man to marry her. I know it's unfair for us women to feel the need of commitments more than men do but that's just what it is. Just do your part in the relationship coz later on he will realize that you mean everything to him.

  11. My bf of 1 month (little over tht & we’re both 18) has said he wants to propose to me this August. If i let him propose to me his way, it’d b too soon for me so i told him to take baby steps. He talks abt me being his wife, moving in, becoming apart of each others families, kids, house, grandkids, pets, etc. & it’s good to have those dreams, but if any of tht happens within this yr or just before i’m ready… i’m not gonna love it😂

  12. Jeannie looks the best she's ever been the divorce did her some good because she looks like a super snack now.

  13. J Lo has been married before at least two times. She should make it a priority to not get married anymore. 👍🏻

  14. I think both parties should be willing. People shouldn't get engaged because one person wants to, the other should want to too.

  15. Off the market? So your only off the market if your engaged or have a ring on? So if your just boyfriend and girlfriend first your not off the market? 🤔🤔🤔

  16. Yall better try that caught up bull shyt some where else aight! AL strait to the core my ninja's!🎃🗼😛…👆🥋✊

  17. I agree with Adrienne. Marriage should be talked about first. Should she pressure him? No. Because pressuring only leads to him proposing so she can hop off his case. When HE feels it, HE will ask the question.

  18. I'm confused. Women want a man to desperately marry them yet will have a double digit notch count? With the advent of feminism women have been told to chase alphas and yet expect those beta males to still be there when she is done? You can't have your cake and eat it.

  19. i told my man from day one "2 years is enough time to know if you want me or not" not a wedding in 2 years just decide or let me move on

  20. For me, when I would first meet someone, I would let them know I don't date just to date. I date for marriage purposes (It's doesn't mean it's going to be him), but I put it out there and it gives me a feel for his mindset. If he runs, then I didn't have to waste my time. This let's the person know your true intentions so no one has to waste their time. I would also let him know I didn't want anymore children and that I had a child already. Also I would ask the guy if he has children and if so how many. Does he have full custody? Because if he doesn't, this means child support and more than likely all of your income will go to paying the bills, not his. I just put it all out there. Either he's going to stay or go. This helps you to narrow down some things and a lot of prayer. My husband has 1 child and he has full custody. If he's fine with this, then you can move forward and weed out some more things. Life is too short, why waste time!

  21. I want to get married someday. I think that sounds one sided that if a woman is successful she doesn't need a man. Why can't she have a man?

  22. This is a bad example. J Lo is particularly A Type dominant and self directed behind scenes but traditional at the same time. So she'll pressure a man to do the asking instead of doing it herself though she really wants to.

  23. I have no problem with a woman laying out her expectations. I told my husband when we were dating that I'm looking a husband not a boyfriend and he needs to be honest about what he was looking. Though we were dating, I let him know that I was still looking because I wasn't off the shelf. That upset him but nope we were not married so I wasn't off no damn shelf and I let him know straight. Well he decided to take me off the shelf. Wise guy😃

  24. if a woman isn't married by 35 she's not gonna be…period. then all that awaits her is spinsterhood….

  25. Men should avoid marriage at all costs.Why? Well for starters, the old marriage model does not work anymore. Women are jumping back and forth from being traditional to modern all of the time. They demand equality when they go to work, then they demand chivalry when they go out on the town. Also, the minute she is pregnant with your child she is locked into your income for 20 years whether she stays with you or not. Furthermore, there is nothing keeping here from leaving because the law is no fault divorce. She can give birth to your child and then the next day say, “bye, you have bad breath.” Then you are paying her child support for 20 years.
    Guys, women do not care about fairness. It is the YOU GO GIRL generation. They have thrown us under the bus with their ME TOO crap and false allegations. They have created a hostile environment for all males. It is better to go MGTOW. Men Going Their Own Way. Mgtow.com. This is a lifestyle where you become your own man and you do not let society or women tell you who you are. Or who you should be. This is just a website for men and you pay a small donation to post articles and respond to others but mgtow men are all over the world.

  26. No duh why women want to get married . There's no downside for them . No work . Get more money . Once they get what they want divorce the man get half his stiff and move on to the next . Pretty free ticket if you ask me

  27. AM I the only one who doesn't see the point in getting married? (Please don't click on my face. I'm a germaphobe.)

  28. Loni love the shade though 😂😂😂

    Jeanie: chokes and coughs a couple of times.
    Loni: it's them late nights 😂😂😂

  29. Why should me marry women? What's in it for men? Especially if the man is weak. Men don't need women to be successful. Men can easily be even more successful if he remains single.

  30. A vision from a brazilian guy:
    That's my pointL why get married? To be happy? No.
    To have sex everyday? No
    To have kids? No
    Why so?
    Get married to have a great partner beside me to overcome our trials in life.
    To laugh with me in good moments, and give me hugs in bad moments.
    To wake me every day early, just to see the dawn, the first sunshines of the day.
    To give her a hot tea when she's sick in bed, to get a hot tea from her when I'm sick
    To know many places in world together, to swim in different beaches around the globe
    To sing with her, to sing to her, to play guitar
    Learn new languages with her, study new thing together.
    To grow in life together, to get old together
    Drinking some wine before to go bed.
    To work together, to cook new and organic foods together
    To work out together, to make volunteer works together
    To wake up in the middle of night to take care of baby
    Many things i wanna do with my wife.
    But there's only one problem: I don't know her yet. I don't discovered who is she, an ideal great friend who's willing to do all those things to me.
    Who is she? I'm still finding….

  31. Mgtow dudes if your married to a straight up women whose honest and loyal more power to you yo but as for this fella lmfao helllllllllllllllll no lol I’ll keep my freedom money and house for sure

  32. I don't think women are "prone" to marriage, we are taught to pursue marriage at a young age while men are taught to play the field and hesitate to settle down. I was actually taught the opposite (to be independant and not chase a ring) and as I got older I saw why. A lot of men don't value marriage and it makes women not value or want it either. A sad circle.

  33. Agree with Adrienne 100%. When a man really wants to be married to you, you don't have to tell him. You don't have to convince him. I don't want to be with a man I have to convince to want me. You either want me or you don't. Period. And I'd rather be with someone who wants me, than someone I have to convince to want me.

  34. I am a Nigerian Youtuber with plenty of content on marriage and relationships .This video kept coming up under my very controversial video”WHY SIDE CHICS ARE WINNING” so I decided to watch… totally enjoyed it💋

  35. Marriage today had zero tradition then it did Years ago, the divorce rate has sky Rocketed and women are getting knocked up then getting married and god forbid if a woman takes a man to court, this man stands to lose anything he’s got including custody and possibly getting thrown out of a house he paid for, I see nothing ZILCH a man gains being married to a woman and every time I asked the question to women what do we gain they give the same answer, kids, a family, cooks, clean house, she does all the decorating, things that are just meaningless😂 Any man who marries in this day and age is a fucking idiot

  36. Men are still marrying these bitches out here?! Have they not learned that's the biggest mistake of a man's life? Like, are you that delusional to think your marriage is actually going to work and the bitch won't divorce rape you? Simps 🤷🏽‍♂️

  37. This episode is another great example of Briffault's Law in action.
    Gentlemen open your mind and free yourselves from the plantation. #MGTOW

  38. Yes I agree. If a woman is independent then why she needs a man when she can earn herself and live her life.Women who earns and still thinking about her marriage, that means they are slaves of their husbands.
    They should think like I am earning and I don't need any man in my life including her father. That is called independent.
