Jordan Peterson exposes the dark truth about marriage: 'That's a b**** of a vow'

Studies show that in the United States, marriage rates have dropped 60% in the last 50 years. This appears to be due to a number of factors, including less societal pressure to tie the knot, glorification of individualism and independence, and a declining desire to have children, among other factors.

But perhaps above all, the reason more and more people are opting for singleness might be, simply put, because marriage is hard.

Jordan Peterson said it best when he explained what it means "to be all in.” Although being “all in” is cliche and easily tacked on to marriage vows, the sentiment of the saying holds a dark, albeit beautiful, truth.

“The marriage vow is basically this: No matter what you tell me, I won’t run away. And that’s a b**** of a vow because when someone unveils their whole heart, they unveil themselves all the way down to hell. It’s not pleasant; it’s awful,” Peterson said.

“It’s just so radically countercultural,” Isabel Brown tells Dave Rubin. “Every column in Cosmopolitan or Teen Vogue, every influencer video, every podcast … is all about what I want, what's going to make me happy, what's going to satisfy my needs, what's going to help me feel empowered, what's going to liberate me.”

“And yet really healthy, beautiful relationships are never really about you. Like you’re not the main character. You're dying to yourself to put the needs and wants and desires of your partner first, and I just think that's really, really powerful,” Brown continues.

“You’ve got to show your wife or husband some of that dirt that's under there and how you clean it up together and build something better,” agrees Dave, who’s a huge fan of Peterson.
