But one of the reasons why we fend off truth and reality so defensively is that we seek often desperately to preserve our worldview intact, for there’s nothing dearer to us than the way in which we see the world. In fact we prefer our worldview to the world itself, and that dearness is all the greater amongst intellectuals who if they find themselves obliged to change their outlook may have to reverse all of that which they have hitherto said and even to consider the harmful effects of what they have said.
Theodore Dalrymple

The amount of hands is not enough

Except that I hate to say, if “a romantic relationship” is what you define as marriage, you’ve either never been married, or if you have, it didn’t or hasn’t lasted longer than 10 months.

^
Romance is neither the end goal nor the ultimate driving force of marriage. The attitude that it is is what the guy on top is criticizing

Exactly. So the”what?/not enough hands” snarky comments were totally unwarranted which was my point also. Just in case that wasn’t clear on my end. :-)
I probably would have made the same snarky comments or something similar when I was very new to real life myself. Also, the guy in the first pic, former Republican, Pennsylvannia Senator Rick Santorum, is a favorite target of mockery and disdain by many folks who would call themselves “liberal”, so I understand the attitude where that line of reaction may come from. I would however say to the folks who would agree with the bottom pic of Stephen Colbert’s pose of incredulity at Rick Santorum’s comment, is that the sooner they abandon that attitude, the better for them and whoever they themselves would ever potentially think of marrying…

Oh, no I was agreeing with you~ The ^ was promoting your comment :)

The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you.

"I’ve decided that I’m not taking shit from _____________ humans anymore and am going to stop being there for people who will not appreciate _____________ neurotic, co-dependant enabling character trait. Going forward this will be the year of me", etc. etc. ad nauseum, ad self-absorbeum, ad wtf-eum.

To try too hard to make people good is one way to make them worse. The only way to make them good is to be good, remembering well the beam and the mote.
