It’s true..

because even without the proper equipment, women are still able to engage in one big pointless pissing match.

(sheesh.. i tried to be sensitive, but my inner Carlin must be satisifed. bad man, bad!)

yeah, but you are a man, so it’s much easier for you to laugh off stuff like this–just think if your strenghts–i.e., your career, your ability to frickin support yourself financially, put yourself through college, wipe your own a**–were seen as negatives? I find it silly, too, that people are taking an article about marriage posted on, of all sites, Forbes.com seriously–but, if you look at some of the guys’ responses, it’s chilling how many people stil actually think some of this crap…

AMEN to Reader’s last comment. all the things that are seen as positive for men (financially supporting themselves and the like) are seen as negatives for women.

i resent that too many men today laugh this off and they CAN because they do not have to face the issues of discrimination every day that women do – because at the end of the day i am a successful woman with an MBA and I do tend to find that men wind up marrying women who take care of them like mommies instead of wanting a real true partner.

Has there been a single man to step up and say “wow, this article was out of line”? At all? I think my friends are pretty run of the mill guys, some very well-educated, some not – some career men, some not… and not a single one of them has ever expressed an opinion like those shown here. Why are just the crazies running rampant on this?

I agree–apart from the “career girls are HOT” thread–not many of the guys are taking issue with this–it’s interesting to see how many men will admit to agreeing with this kind of stuff under cover of online anonymity–I’m just sayin–I was married to a so-called progressive guy who had a great mom, etc., but at the end of the day–who was doing the dishes, huh? huh?

sorry, but I won’t be saying that.

I myself, have no problem with women making more money then me. I have no problem with cooking meals, i think its fun (i’m just not very good at it). Cleaning tends to allude me, I’ll admit.

But when I read his article, he’s really just compiling facts from numerous sociological studies and saying “well sheeit sheriff, would you look at that?”

I wouldn’t be surprised if 90% of his article isn’t even his own thought, but regurgitated survey results and opinions published elsewhere.

and i like to think of myself as run of the mill… (which actually means I haven’t been inspected for quality and came straight from the mill).. which is kinda true for these internet things.

Of course you won’t — because it’s easy for you guys to overlook the first sentence. Instructing men not to marry successful women because of X, X, and X. It didn’t hit you with an insult right off the bat, so it’s easier for you to look past that and defend the facts of the article.

As far as what factors affect the marriage — valid? Absolutely! There’s no argument that these things don’t put stress on a marriage. But it’s not the be all/end all. And if it was going to be presented — it needed to be presented without a lead like this has, and without a preachy tone to the first paragraph.

How come no men are saying, “These things have always affected marriages. Just because they’re now true for women — they’re somehow not worthy partners of equally intelligent men?” Why isn’t that the logical response? Why is it open season for men to call any woman offended by this a crazy feminist?
