I am not sure where you are getting your info, but good topic.
I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more.
Thanks for great information I was looking for this information for my mission.
I will probably get yeleld at for this but....While Harper runs the country as an economist (as it should be run, I might add) and has done better than previous prime ministers, that doesn't excuse his complete unwillingness to address pro-life issues. He avoids them because he knows- one way or another- he will pay for it politically. Voting someone like him in not only supports him and his stand (or lack thereof), it also gives no impetus for him to revisit any issue. He knows he will always get support, no matter how much someone may hold their noses and vote.Just my thoughts.Reply
You don't mangae her but you can mangae to stay married to her making sure you both maintain your freedom and independence and don't become too emotionally, mentally, or financially dependent on the other. Keep your finances separate but cooperate on joint expenses so that everything is as equal as possible. If you owned property or investments prior to marriage, keep those out of the marriage. It muddies the waters and erodes equality if one had more than the other.Encourage her to keep her married name if she wants to, and continue working if children come along so that both participate equally in funding a shared home and caring for childrenEncourage her to excel in her career as much as possible and you do the same. You each should find fulfillment in things independently not just together so that marriage doesn't define you. Don't coddle her and treat her like a girl/lady , which often is in a protective manner that she doesn't treat you in. Rather, treat her like an independent, strong, just as capable of: cutting the grass, fixing the toilet, killing spiders, patching the roof, or anything else person as you are, if not more capable.That's how you mangae to stay married to a feminist wife.Reply
I was humbled by what I read, and it rlelay struck a chord with me. In the years I worked Maternity, I dealt with cases not so far from some of the stories I read tonight. Some of them did not have happy endings. I am glad to see anyone trying to focus attention on domestic violence. Silence is a bad thing, and it has been hidden by cultural taboos for too long. We need to drag it into the light and get discussion going, then perhaps we will be able to help survivors in the way they need.Reply
Most of us men have come to realize that we are the "enemy" to a growing number of women. I now accept it as a fact of life and choose to live a great life.....alone. I refuse to accept that my only value is to be a footstool to an angry women. I think that the real loser is in fact women! By the way, I can also see that there are also a shrinking number of boys who turn into men as well.Reply
I'm a middle aged man whose never been married. But, I'm not 'single': I'm an individual. It's sad that the modern narrative still circles inside that same box. I would go so far as to say that it's prejudiced to discuss people in married/single terms. Are Black people just people who aren't White yet? Having said that, I applaud your bravery against the feminist horde, Ms. Venker.Reply
Yes we have the so called liberal left wing nazi-feminist women who rush was right on his talk radio. This so called left wing nazi-feminist women have destroyed the family and marriage fabric of good moral society. See those nazi-feminist women who thought other women to act same and be immoral single women mothers who get childrens out of wedlock and have no role model for their boy childrens.
So strong family based heterosexualy Christian conservative families from USA need to destroy this so called nazi-feminist women need to be destroyed by us conservatives and clean this country USA of us which founded by our christian forefathers.
For your kind information this mess of arrogant nazi-feminist immoral womens are only in mostly in this good moral country and giving birth as single mothers to criminal minded left-wing childrens and spoiling our land. If you go to the other continents of the world like the rest of Asia and Muslim world and other Christian countries they have move respected hard working womens with moral and family values and balancing both job and family with no nazi-feminist attitudes.
So this mess is just in our country and I point to those single immoral woman mothers and single girls who voted for this evil left wing party for free benefits and entitlements for which our right wing conservative party work hard in this country. It was for us this country was famous all over the world not this single nazi-feminist women.
If they call it a war on men then I will tell all the conservative heterosexual mens to rise up and don’t be like impotent mens and show how this world was formed by mens order not by this nazi-feminist women and get ready to destroy them. This small percentage is only in our country and they don’t dare try to speak this in other Asian and muslim countries will just behead this nazi-feminist women rogues.
We do need nurse the hard core radical Christian conservative young guns to be at war at any time to destroy this nazi-feminist women thinkers and the left wing so trying to push in our throat all this immoral evil thinkings.
Kevin, You are quite right. I live and speak bi-continentally (US and AUS) as an author on traditional marriage and hear this quite often from Western men. . . that they wouldn't ever marry a Western women because we are disagreeable, bossy, self-centered and selfish, demanding, and generally very unpleasant to live with. It's a fair description. Western women are so focused on the fear their husband could become a dominating dictator - - they have become harsh dictators themselves. [K. B. Haught is the author of "The God Empowered Wife: How Strong Women Can Help Their Husbands Become Godly Leaders."]Reply
For the most part, I wholeheartedly agree with this article. However, I'm not so sure that these people are attacking marriage when they say they are happy being single. I think, like me, many young people are now realising that marrying for the wrong reasons (read:happily ever after myth) is landing everyone in divorce. Marriage is not an institution, and it's called an institutuion for a reason, to be entered into lightly, or even just for love. I always remind people that love is necessary but not sufficient for marriage. That said, I think that these days we need to understand what we want to do with our lives beyond hearth and home before we can meet someone with whom it even makes sense to marry. Don't forget that the beginning of feminism was born out of abject boredom and dissatisfaction with life. Why? Because not all women are called to be mothers or wives.
What the article 'single by choice' seems to me to be saying is that we need to stop telling ourselves that it's necessary to find someone to be happy. It is necessary to be happy, and maybe then we'll find someone to be happy with: family+marriage or not.
Western men are increasingly looking at Asian women for relationships.Reply
Thanks for your blog and for your perspective. I hear so much bombardment from the media and entertainment of feminist. I find that when feminists say men have no right to comment on certain issues simply because their men, what they're really saying is "We know our argument sucks, and if men did address these issues, everyone would say that the emperor is wearing no clothes."Reply
Aaargh! That Hanna Rosin woman in the video (and her daughter) were just horrible! On and on about how great they were and how victimized they were. I wouldn't say the husband was emasculated so much as has a high tolerance for B.S. At least he called her out on being a bully when she wouldn't directly answer his questions. I imagine if that marriage is still intact it is on shaky ground because the husband seemed fully aware and even willing to call B.S. - not sure why he's staying with such a grating and annoying woman. And on that note, my 8 year old daughter will often proudly announce that girls are better than boys and I have to explain to her that girls and boys are just very different and bring different strengths and weaknesses to the picture - just like every *person* is different. I was brought up with a lot of misogyny as a child and was taught girls are inferior. It took me a long time to get over the scars of that and I'll be d*mned if I'm going to turn around and do the same thing to men when I already know how hurtful it is. Shame on all women who treat men so badly!Reply
