Reader Response to “Don’t Marry Career Women” – Say What

Say What

52 divorced female.  Husband the cheater.  Many women are in the work force becoming career women because they can’t depend on a man to take care of them.  For years men were the sole providers, many enjoying the pleasures of infidelity while they were out.  When they reached mid life crisis, they went for the younger women and the wife who stayed home to take care of the children and house ended up with nothing.  Those women became role models.  If that hurts tough.  Divorce happens when one party or another doesn’t want to compromise or is abusive.  I know many couples married that have the best of both worlds.  They also respect and value each other.

Many women are in the work force becoming career women because they can’t depend on a man to take care of them.

Switch the genders around and the same thing is true for men:

Many men are in the work force becoming career men because they can’t depend on a woman to take care of them.

It only sounds a little weird because we don’t tend to think of working men as “career men”, since men don’t have the options women have. So you’d probably have to change the “many” to an “all”.

Are you saying you don’t like equality between the sexes now that it’s here?

More questions…
Did feminism make a fundamental mistake by claiming women were socially inferior to men, thus leading to the calls for equality, when in fact equality was a big step down for women? And how can men be to blame for this when we’ve heard so much about how much men haven’t changed (meaning men are a constant in the equations)?

Isn’t much of current feminism just an attempt to hold onto women’s traditional privileges while also claiming their half of men’s traditional privileges?

Will women not be truly equal until they start supporting men and their children to the same extent men support women and children?

Women do pay.  My brothers ex pays him child support for their son.  Just because your exes lawyer was better don’t be bitter.

Divorce also happens when the woman decides she’s maxed out her entitlements and wants to “cash in” hence 70% of divorces are initiated by women!

Yeah.  Yep.  THAT’S why women are divorcing men…because they went into it just waiting for the day they could “cash out.”

You’re a little bit ridiculous, you know that?  Some day, with luck, you will find a clue.

Actually, that happens more often than you might think. A good friend of mine has just been through his second divorce. He’s about the most gentle, sensitive person a know (drama teacher). Both wives left him, after cheating, because they claimed he “didn’t make enough to satisfy their needs” (although they put it in different ways.) The first one took the child and left him to pay out the bills, while demanding child support. The second took three kids, and now wants the family home while he pays support and her bills, even though she works. She only works 27 hours a week so that she can lower her income, as the court has ruled he must make up the difference.
Any guesses as to whether he’s interested in marriage again?
