I'm 36 years old and a former beta cuck who swallowed the red pill after a few disastrous LTRs that crumbled due to my sensitivity and weakness (both mental and physical). I still have a lot to learn, but when it came time to throw off the blue pill chains, I naturally adopted the IDGAF attitude, started heavy lifting, and found a lot of success with women, sex, and relationships. In fact, I'm trying to learn to tone not giving a fuck because my last LTR turned into a Master/Slave (instead of the Captain/First Mate) relationship that I could not tolerate (the constant comfort tests and neediness eventually destroyed any desire I had for her).
I'm currently in an LTR of 1.5 years that has been progressing smoothly and I've been making an effort to create a more Captain/First Mate dynamic (although I'm still primarily getting comfort tests, this woman is not as needy as the girl from my previous relationship). She's operating in my frame, allows me to lead, and sex is abundant. In short, I'm pleased with the progress so far and she's starting to bring up living together/marriage.
Reading a lot of TRP literature and blogs, men are constantly advising other men to avoid living together and marriage. Even the successfully married ones advise against it unless you really want a traditional family environment to raise children (my girlfriend and I are both childfree, so that doesn't apply). I've read enough to have very little doubt that these men know what they're talking about and that I'd be a fool to not take serious heed of their warnings. In fact, I have no desire to marry and would be happy with the limited companionship that living apart provides.
As a side note, I'm currently employing Agree and Amplify responses whenever she brings up marriage, but at some point soon this issue needs to be seriously addressed.
Perhaps I'll get lucky and she'll be fine with remaining in an LTR without any further commitments, but I think that's like a woman saying maybe she'll get lucky and he'll be fine with remaining in a marriage without any sex.
My questions to all of you married RPers: if you could go back in time, would you still get married? Under what circumstances would you ever recommend a fellow man get married?
