Seems like the thread got restless over the weekend. OP posted some horror stories, which most of those are from divorces. While the chance of having a divorce is significant, around 30-40 percent for college educated folks, you also have to be aware of the number of people in marriages that are listless, loveless, functionally dead.

If you add that number to the divorce number you should know the odds are stacked against you unless you meet that girl who'll defy the odds. Remember marriage is probably the most important decision you'll ever make, for if you get it wrong, you'll get a margin call the likes you've never experienced.

Tell her you just blew your entire trading account and are now totally broke.

Then you will really know if she is deeply in love with you.
The problem really isn't if she's in love or not. The main problem is that she'll have too much power in marriage and divorce with how the laws and court systems are set up nowadays. Powers that she can use to ruin you if she choose to. With just two words (divorce+children) and your life is basically gone.

Even if she's in love, I think she can still change over time or fall out of love even. You just never know. Yesterday's good can become tomorrow's evil. It's sad but it's reality.

Quote from Random.Capital:

If you want to make that choice, then make that choice.

But it is an abdication of responsibility by every measure that makes us human, plain and simple.

It is also extremely short sighted, as familial groups (tribes, if you like) are far stronger than individuals.

Blame the feminists for men abdicating said responsibilty. They broke the social contract.

It seems spelling is not your forté. Keep posting, it's not like you have anything better to do anyway.
your remark is the usual nonsense from your ilk. if you can't attack the facts attack the person.
your logic is again wrong.
try to learn the difference between a misspelling and a typo.

Just passed my 65'th anniversary.Through the years there have been good times and bad times.Just like trading.You can't predict the future,but you can recognize probabilities in both picking stocks or women.If you blow up try to figure out what happened.Look within,It might have been your fault. Don't be too quick to blame her or the market.
Everything in life is like trading. Pick your friends as you would pick swing trades. There are no guarantees in either. Just do the best you can with what you got.

congratulations heypa, on the weekends, especially on this thread, it is just a bunch of cynical broken hearted guys at the bar, but come Monday morning, most of us are optimists, and I for one believe in the beauty of love and marriage, and I always like it when it works out for somebody. As you say, it's the same for trading, most threads are endless posts about why people lose with enough blame to go around to cover everybody but the individual posting. 65? Man that's awesome. You should write a book before she finally drives you crazy.
