Blender.com caught up with Gene Simmons in a Q&A, and asked the KISS bassist/vocalist how he managed to get Shannon Tweed to not marry him but still stay around. “Guys have become such wimps, it just shocks me,” he responded. “My God, what happened to the alpha male? I believe in total honesty. I believe in full disclosure before the fact, before you get with a girl. If you wanna marry her, say, ‘OK, I wanna marry, but let’s talk about if we get divorced,’ because statistics say you will. So you must ask her the most important question, which is: If you want money, let me know how much. Let me make an educated decision.”
