I think most states these days are no fault, community property although there are a few remaining hold outs.

The laws really aren't that crazy and usually only come into play in long term marriages. Pre-nups are popular for men who think they have something to loose.

Marrying has been a good option for me, but can't speak for other guys.

I can say that with the high cost of living here, having a dual income definitely leads to a much higher standard of living. So if not marriage, living together is ideal.

Thatdepends on you not the law unless you plan for a divorce. Take marriage seriously as it should be.

Yes, and if the wife makes more, then she has to pay alimony, so why is this disadvantageous to men?

If thats the way you look at it then it's best not to get married, if you are worrying about divorce before your married then you probably have already sealed your fate.
Yes I know a few guy paying right now but to them it was worth getting out of their marriage.
I've been married 33 years.

NOT TRUE! Do your research. In CA it's called "spousal support" and it has a cut-off date usually based on the length of the marriage, the financial resources/income of both parties, etc.

Given the vast number of people getting married I would suspect it is but if it bothers either party then you have the option of a prenuptial agreement.
