The words "until death do us part" are remarkably frightening to the thirty lifelong bachelors whose stories unfold in Dr. Howard's in-depth study, MEN WHO NEVER. One bachelor confesses: "I've believed in the romantic myth. Somehow I'm the only American who feels that bells ring and rockets go off. . . That if you are smart and cute you get someone beautiful and classy and kind and sexy. . . Nothing short of that will satisfy. If I settle for less, I'm a sellout. I'm giving in, I'm a sucker." MEN WHO NEVER recounts how these men resist the social pressure to "tie the knot." Dr. Howard's bachelors reveal themselves and their struggles with humor, honesty, and pathos. Filled with the men's own insights, the book explores their temperments, families, choice of careers, love affairs, sex lives, views on women - both idealized and dreaded, and the cultural influence on this view. Questions are raised about the nature of commitment and a dilemma is posed: Is marriage as an institution more a barrier than a facilitator of connection? Perhaps it is the organization of marriage that makes the bachelors in this study, and maybe all men to some degree, fear it as a loss of precious boyhood spontaneity, a loss of the "Wild Man." MEN WHO NEVER inspires thought about our own lovers, husbands, and wifes, and about the bachelor in each of us.
