Lets call him "John" is in his early 30s, LTR 3 years(Married 2),one kid with her, average looks, earns around 80k per year between two jobs(He picked up a dishwashing job on the weekends and a few weekday nights), paying off a house he can't afford. All he ever talks about is his wife and trying to make her happy. He has zero hobbies or interests left besides her.
The wife is in her late 20s, she has 2 kids(one with John), she is 7 in looks, she quit her job to be a stay-at-home mom, puts kids in daycare to pursue her "hobbies"(of course social hobbies), goes out with her girlfriends twice a week.
John often complains about a sexless marriage, being stuck watching the kids, communication problems, boundary issues, lack of money, lack of sleep, lack of time. I've offered advice, only to have it thrown back in my face. "Things are different when you get married and settle down, you'll understand someday".
He sold his custom motorcycle, he rode it to work all of the time. He now has no car or motorcycle
Why? Because his wife claimed she needed a better car. She drove his 2016 Nissan Rogue with around 35000 miles on it(He owned it). She now has a pre-owned 2018 GMC Acadia top of the line model(it's hers) with not even 5,000 miles on the clock. How did they afford/ make the down payment? He sold his bike Friday and traded in the Rogue. He has a car payment of over 500 dollars a month now, for a car he doesn't own.
John hasn't even driven the SUV yet. He claims his wife won't let him and it's because "She just loves it so much". He claims he loves seeing her this happy and no motorcycle could replace the way he feels right now. John sold one of his favorite things in the world to spoil an already spoiled brat.
He's unaware of the future to come; Cuckolding (she already cheated once, that he knows of), divorce rape and having his kids hate him.
Don't give up any hobby or anything you love for a woman. Don't fucking get married. Women aren't worth it.
