Dear men of reddit, what is up with the whole "marriage is the end of my life" deal. Why get married if you aren't excited for it? Or better yet, why is it a trope?

I’m getting married soon, I’m thrilled and so excited about her, as I usually am. I’m not thrilled or excited about marriage, it’s just a thing someone made up.

It’s like getting a new license plate on your sports car. Experience is still just as thrilling before and after, it just has a different number on it now. Call me jaded but I’m usually more concerned about the content than the packaging of things in life. Most of these big things people get all wowed about just seem small and feeble to me. Not all of them, I’m trying to be superior, I’m sure most of my life’s content is useless garbage to most of you. Different strokes.
