You will probably call me sexist, but I think that giving more and more rights to women and children, discourages men to marry.
How ? The man raised his voice when addressed to his wife and "mild struck disobedient child on the butt" becomes a family bully and be stuck in prison. It will only take a divorce. However, there is alimony, his ex-wife decides when father may visit their child and some women go far away to the father not to approach the child to less than 100 meters.
Hi Al, I haven't been avoiding this thread, I've been beyond busy here
and haven't hardly even had the time to check my emails. I don't
like it when I get so busy, too busy, I can't even log into the forum
I strongly recommend people live together for a full three (3) years
before entertaining the idea of marriage. Why? Because when you live
with someone for 3 solid years, there's a good chance in that time frame
a couple will experience all the ups and downs in a day to day relationship
including job loss, monetary difficulties, irritation from meddling parents
(future in-laws) and a host of other relationship "challenges".
If a relationship survives that 3 years and the couple is still madly
in love with each other and has gone through some thick and thin,
then chances are the "marriage" will last, and endure on a positive path.
They say -
You parent how you were parented
and I see that a lot in society. You must have been a bad boy
growing up, where your parents had to beat your ass to keep you
LOL I'm just kidding Al , I need to razz you now and
then, life gets too serious and we all need to lighten it up now and then.
Now to reply to your PM you sent me...
