10 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Marry a Musician:

10: They'll automatically lose their "homeless" status. 9: Bring in a new guitar while wearing a sheer nighty and guess which one they'll look at first? 8: A savings bond will mature much faster. 7: You'll always end up in front of the PA speakers. 6: Every girl singer is a potential threat to you. 5: They'll ask for your honest opinion, then ignore it. 4: They'll make you carry some of their instruments. 3: They often have an MTV mind in a PBS world. 2: Because your mother is usually right about this stuff.

And the #1 reason why you shouldn't marry a musician:

They'll still keep introducing you as a girl friend to all their friends (if they introduce you at all).

What do they call a musician without a girlfriend?

Yup. Homeless.

But seriously, folks, I've known some musicians who were serious, hard-working people who were faithful to their mates and devoted to their craft. It's often a very difficult financial path, if one is trying to make one's living that way, and a frustrating creative one if one always has to work a day gig.

Unfortunately, the stereotype also has a great deal of validity and there are plenty of musicians who are rounders and philanderers and bums by most societal standards. It's important to make sure you're hooking up with the former rather than the latter.

Best wishes from she who ought to know,

I think the warning against marrying musicians must only apply if you are not musically inclined....musicians have a habit of playing at all hours of day or night. A musician will also rather buy a new instrument than food..not to mention that if they're an all-around musician, they will attempt to learn every new instrument they can find, and you will have to listen to them play. And *no* musician has an innate sense of responsibility! It's incompatible with choosing to be a musician! Not that this is a *Bad* thing, musicians definitely make the best mates. You just have to be a certain kind of person to enjoy it.

I feel very fortunate to be a musician married to a musician. We are both beset with the same "disease" and have each other to play with at any crazy hour wherever we are. We are really lucky to be able to start a jam on our own, make music together at the spur of the moment, talk each other into just this one more fine instrument, etc.

There are also the benefits of having a common interest and a great musical bond that inspires both of us. Many couples wish they had a leisure activity they both enjoyed. We have it. We're blessed by the bond and also by the music.

So, my advice would be to those married to a musician: consider taking up an instrument yourself. It's never too late. It's great for the togetherness and it's also a joy for yourself alone.

A musician was asked what he would do if he won the lottery. He replied that he would just keep working till it was all done. Thats a good reason, cos we never seem to be able to make any money at it, and when we do there is always that new guitar, PA, Mike stand, mike etc that we just cannot do without.

Wikiquote gives us the following version as a direct translation from a source in Swedish, Sibelius' mother tongue:
It is so difficult to mix with artists! You must choose business men to talk to, because artists only talk of money.
Sibelius was of course referring to himself, who wanted to converse about music, and, being a professional musician himself, was an exception to his rule.

Because they love themselves first not you... Not your kids. Because they are in bars all the time and thinks there so hot because drunk girls are falling all over them. Because they think they are great in bed but when you see them play, they are making the same stupid face. Oh gross, they are in love with themselves. They are skinny asses with nothing going on.....anywhere if you know what I mean. Married to one for 20 years. Never once spoke to me about a gig before it was booked. Stupid, selfish and generally broke. Blame the world because they can't make money. Bad tippers. Think the world owes them something because their lame asses became somewhat proficient at learning an instrument. Oh please, if people who actually function in the world took up an instrument, we would kick their lame asses.

I read almost all the pasts and there's a little bit of truth in almost all of them. I met my husband when I was in the Air Force and he was playing in a bar in Great Falls, Montana. That was 34 years ago. It was really tough. The first 5 years were the worst. My husband has a lot of insecurities and masks them behind his bass guitar. However, before he married me he told me he'd quit the road and get a job. He did and has been a fantastic provider ever since. I so appreciate that about him. But when he plays he is always tempted by drugs, alcohol and women. Bars are not family or marriage family places. My husband almost ended up an alcoholic at one point early on and when you're drunk and in a place that is filled with people with loose morals it is not a good mix. So there was infidelity too. And drugs. But thankfully, when we were separated and heading for divorce, I became a Christian and God miracuously reconciled us and I am happy for it as my husband (and I) have really changed and grown. Musicians can be very selfish - if they're into drugs, drinking and women - all addicts are selfish and immature? But not all musicians are addicts - some restrain themselves and keep clean - but it's hard when temptation is always knocking at the door. I think it's more about the 'wanting to escape into another world where everybody likes you, respects you and admires you because in the 'real' world you're really nobody special - that causes most of the problems. Like everyone else, musicians have a void that only God can fill. When we realize this we don't have to work so hard at proving to the world that we are a somebody.

I do not get this myth of musicians as babe magnets. Being a lifelong ugly bastard playing guitar - singing - piano - bass etc does not pull the laydeez. I am a realist so being a steady provider is the thing.

It is ironic that late in life ie 50 and 60s my face which is indeed capable of stopping clocks at some distance has made me quite substantial sums as villain or assorted thugs in movies and TV I have played Captain Bligh - been the ugliest mermaid you can imagine and also been a troll (without makeup) and a number of pimps - thugs and villains

Sorry about all the typos - I reread my post and was, like, how did that happen lol. It's too early in the morning I guess! Anyway - just one other thing - I really like the post from the wife who encourages other non-playing wives to take up an instrument and join her husband so that both have something in common. Every husband and wife should do things together that they both enjoy. Unfortunately for me I am so void of musical talent that I don't think it would be possible, but we did take up biking and kayaking together and we also enjoy long rides in the country. Fortunately my husband loves nature like I do. A good book for any couple to read is: "Strike the Original Match" by Charles Swindoll. Even musicians want good/better marriages!

Why is this thread about musicians? Why isn't it about narcissistic assholes who don't know how to be in relationships? There's been nothing said in this thread about musicians. Sure, a lot of musicians are jerks, but so are many school teachers, police officers, garbage collectors, and grocery store clerks. I'm tired of the stereotype of the clueless musician. It causes folks to make untrue assumptions about many fine people.

If you don't like narcissists, don't hang out with them. Please don't confuse it with whether or not they are also musicians.
