I was thinking, everything about marriage is a money making scheme to line the pockets of white men it all starts with the ring, of which everyone knows diamonds are worthless yet the white man rapes Africa of its diamonds acts like they are rare and sells them for ridiculous amounts while paying the African labor next to nothing, borderline slavery. - as a black man this is the first of putting thing then you have the party itself, you invite people to come and eat on your pocket, and most weddings cost the amount where you could put towards a house deposit or even pay off some or all of your mortgage. then the wedding dress, a dress that's worn once which on avg cost over 1,000 all these things the white man is getting paid off. and that's not even before we look on divorce, where once again the white man gets paid off. and the woman will probably also get paid from as stats show its usually the men that have to give away money to the ex wife. and lets not even mention alimony the ultimates of insanity. so is it time we focus on the wellbeing of relationships instead of these institutions ?
