T.I. has some words to share regarding his beliefs on marriage.
Taking to Instagram, the rapper/reality star made a bold claim stating that the male species is not naturally inclined to marry, and his comments are certain to upset many.
Tip, who, after a series of marital changes and looming divorce news involving his relationship with his wife Tiny, is still married, took to IG to share what he claims is a sentiment he agreed with "to a degree."
Boldly titled "Why men don't marry," the post reads, "Because there's nothing in it for them: What exactly does marriage offer men today? 'Men know there's a good chance they'll lose their friends, their respect, their space, their sex life, their money and — if all goes wrong — their family."
The quote, taken from Dr. Helen Smith, the author of Men on Strike, seemed to strike a chord with the rapper, who added in his caption, "I've heard it,& seen this a million times over. Note to women: Happiness needs no validation.... The Ego does."
He went on to add a further critique about why women, in his eyes, look for the wrong things in marriages.
Anyway, take a look at his full post, below:
This naturally urges one to wonder if T.I. thinks he's lost respect, friends, money, his sex life and all the other elements listed in the quote he referenced.
