Yes there are bad marriages, someone made the picture of stuffed animals with bombs or gold? Men and women have both fallen guilty. It´s quitte simple and seen all within the western world. Good men have given up and simply given sexually-liberated feminists what they want: swipe left, swipe right thanks Tinder! No need to become cannon fodder in the war by women. The violence of our snuff films and pornography is a variant on the same theme. Treating people like they have rankable value i.

Talk to one of them and ask how their liberated life is going. Education in degree form, wealth in monetary assets, attractiveness on 1-10 scales is extremely short sighted. His value as an emotional suport would outweigh his unproductivity. Plus they all had to work…not to earn a feminist merit badge…but because they had no choice.
He falls in love with the woman of his dreams — and she has a family that promises to be a constant embarrassment and a drain on his resources. Having a woman in charge of the marriage brews chaos and discontent. Feminism, properly understood, is not about the granting of power but rather its negation. Men should completely stop competing for women and women would turn beggars for men pretty fast. Oh, but sorry I don't see what feminism has to do with abortion. We knew the battle of the sexes has been raging for decades.
I am a hospice chaplain who visits people at the end of their life; and I believe that I have learned from my patients that the key to a successful marriage is to seek a love that is strong enough to withstand poverty, sickness, more weight, less hair, and many fewer teeth. We can either accept and honor his blessings our act like we are above all that now. I learned a trade and am debt free. I remember a conversation with a radical feminist theologian in college. Far too many good and strong men stood by and did nothing, perhaps because the culture dictated a hands-off, blind approach to the problem.

Women, the ball is in your court, change it. Have you been hiding under a rock? Would you die for to protect a women who has had 10 sex partners prior to you, and will have 10 more after you?
