Corcoran is Absolutely Correct


Reader Response to “Don’t Marry Career Women” – Corcoran is Absolutely Correct

I think Corcoran’s counterpoint, which deliberately avoids the tone of outrage, is absolutely correct.  The bottom line is that women are intelligent beings, like men are intelligent beings, and should be judged accordingly.  Wives vowed to be faithful to their husbands upon marriage.  If they stray, it is because they decided to do so.  They could have and should have done better.  If marital fidelity is based on insisting that women stay in the house, with no contact with the working world, what is it worth anyway?  Men also could lock the doors from the outside and require that their wives wear a burka in the presence of other men.  Would this save marriages?  Insecure men threatened by their wives access to a wider world outside of the home are pathetic — and as the author suggests, lazy and boring.  And yes, women are less attracted to these men.

In terms of the career woman’s dissatisfaction, literature documenting that career women find balancing careers with child raising difficult and experience stress and marital problems as a result is nothing new.  However, it makes no sense to conclude then that women shouldn’t have careers, or at least that men shouldn’t marry women who have careers.  Progress always brings new challenges, but we do not attempt to turn the tide backwards to resolve these new challenges.  Could it be that women have located a crack in the system that should be patched, not only for the benefit of women but also men?  Men should feel equally torn between family and work in today’s crazy work environment.   Has Noer failed to notice that, historically, the entrance of women into the workforce has corresponded with increasingly demanding work schedules and career imperatives?  June is not home cooking, but Ward is not coming home for dinner either.  Is the problem the working woman or the **bleep** job?

Noer essentially encourages men to dumb down their interest in a life partner, one willing to work with them, adapting to the challenges of life in achieving their family and individual goals, and instead prefer someone who can only do the house thing while they do the work thing.  Okay.  To each his own.  But life could be much richer for both, and I feel sorry for her and much sorrier for him.

This is just another attack against men for exercising their right to choose whom to marry. This is the one arena where no amount of personal attacks, shaming, arguing will change the fact that we choose who we wish to marry, where we have complete control. And now, career women are attempting to force our hand in vain. God forbid a man is actually given a seed of thought that makes him question her role in his life and suddenly career women all over are up in arms demanding that they are marriage worthy and this is the only manner in which men should view them. Attacks like this further reinforce how bitter, resentful, and unappealing such women are to marry. Guys take note.
