Milsim and Married

After the TAC11 show (thanks Brian & Co.), the wife posed a question.
How many of your guys are married. Then rationalized that most of the guys must be young and single, their schedule and disposable income, lack of responsibilities. But I countered by suggesting that most of the guys who are "real Milsim guys" are married. Then went into an Impressive list of "Old guys" and my thinking says that more of the married guys can work on a "Big Milsim game Schedule " because these games have a few months warning and they can plan it well and book off work and get "airsoft widow" permission.
I'm not gonna out the names I dropped of "Old guys" the few, the brave, the married, know who they are. So are you a Skirm player or Milsim player married or Single. A lot of guys get their Airsoft balls cut when they "tie the Knot" So are more married guys Big event Milsimers or the young dudes?
cheers

21, practically married (just a singed paper away really), 1 kid and milsimer AND skirmisher, 1-2 4-8 hour games a month, also 9 and counting gun collection AND a gun dock spending a moderate amount of time working on guns. I however, have a woman who enjoys the sport almost as much as I do, she just plays way less

When I attended the large games in Alberta a couple of years ago, being in my late 30's meant I was middle of the age bracket ranging closer to the younger side. Lots of guys older than me, some of them into their 50's.

I would say that anyone who is really serious about milsim and the associated time/money/equipment is likely going to be married, with lots of disposable income and the ability to take time off (secure job or self-employed).

There are variants on both sides, but that was what I saw.

Girlfriend, likes that I have a hobby, doesn't really care what it is, she thinks the guns are cool, if I talk to her about it she listens but I get the blank wide eyed stare that basically says "I have no idea what the f**k you're talking about, but I love you just the same" Shes a great gal.

Oh and milsimer now, used to be skirmisher, but I got bored of that.

almost 24, almost married, 0 kids (for now) and ^this. I skirmish though, would LOVE milsim.

I talk about how I WILL, ONE DAY attend a Mason Relic game (I live in Montreal, which means a good trip for me) ans she's thinks that it would be awesome if I could go.
