Kiss frontman Gene Simmons urges all men to resist the temptation to marry, and save themselves stacks of money at the same time.

The womanising music legend, who once dated rocker Cher, insists there are no benefits to married life - and divorce is far too costly.

He says, "Women are a different species. They have a biological clock, they want to nest. A man produces thousands of sperm every day and a woman thinks it's all for her, but it's not.

"Always be honest with a woman. It's not beneficial for a man to marry. The worst thing a man can do is get married because he has to give 50 per cent of his gross pre-tax dollars to a woman who has given him nothing, apart from companionship.

"That's more than the taxes you pay to the government which gives you nuclear armed forces, military, police and infrastructure."
