I don’t think this needs a summary.

Just read it: Of marriage and men: stereotypes that ignore half the story


  1. Vman,
    Thank you for that most enlightening summary on the priceless validity of modern marriage.
    I could not have added another single word to your conclusive statement.
    I think you nailed it totally.

    For men having 50-50 risk of ‘no fault’ unilateral divorce and being taken to the cleaners, I mean until she’s had enough and wants to dump you and move on to the next wallet temporary union, I mean femily caught$/child support pyramid scheme.
    Aw shit, this just all goes around in my head.
    You guys know which version of ‘marriage’ I’m talking about right?

  2. It’s perfectly clear where men stand in the family for it consists of “women and their children”. Labor governments struggle to even include men in their view of what constitutes our community.

  3. Loved that article, I agree totally that example of feeling like you had to earn the sex and I always felt like she had all the power, she controlled the money, she decided if sex was going to happen then compliained I stopped trying to romance her, like I should continue to make an effort when she’s already decided yes or no well in advance, they make all the rules then cry fowl when you stop playing the game.
    Mine decided it was easier to get a new man and let go of 11years and 3 kids. Then blame me for it all.
    I tried an experement once,My ex and i are on good talking terms (but she hates me) So I invited her out to coffee, we talked a while and eventually the break up came up again. She said I had cheated on her (never happened), it was all in her head. I explained that I never did and the look on her face was pure shock and horror as she never believed me before then. But it took around 5 seconds for her to still blame me for the break up anyway. So I decided to tell her how sorry I was and that I made big mistakes and apoligised for any and all unintentional harm I caused her. Now expecting her to recipricate that apoligy as it was her that cheated in responce to my alleged infidility, it never came, not one sorry. I was pissed off but had to laugh what else should I have expected. She could never take resposibility for any of her own actions. His (the new guy) punishment is he’s marrying her now. Justice I say!.
