    Yep, why try when you’re now in competition with people you were to build a life with? Or as someone said earlier “Women don’t need them”.

    Then folks still criticize when they throttle back and relax instead. Go figure.

    The Courts have IMO been unfair to many Men in the past. Women too. The financial risk involved for a lot of Men can’t be ignored. I have no sympathy for Men complaining about child support. But too often an EX gets to keep their Lifestyle, while the Man pays for it through Alimony. It’s definitely made more than a few Leary of marriage. Nothing new, been that for about 50 yrs now. Can’t blame a Guy. Just the way it is.

    Considering this is the end of the 2nd quarter, freight should be booming, over the next 2 weeks. With the recent ( too late ) interest rate hike, with more hikes promised. The current rates may be the best seen for the rest of the year. It will be interesting what rates are at the end of the 3rd quarter, 3 months from now. No telling. Consumer spending dropping, and credit card use increasing. I can’t see anything improving. Hoping it doesn’t get much worse. I hope I’m wrong.
