Reader Response to “Don’t Marry Career Women” – An idea

I have an idea to make marriage more equal. Career women should buy the homes and make the mortgage payments. By owning the home with the high rates of divorce it makes it fair for the men if they have to leave. While you are married or living together both can make the monthly utility payments but the woman would be responsible for her own home and maintainence.

This allows the man and woman to both save their own money in their own accounts. Since women especially the career ones are financially independent you should have no trouble with this idea right?

The other good advantage is both men and women will need to respect each other more. If the woman doesn’t satisfy her man he will leave since he is not responsible for the home, same goes for the woman she can request him to leave if he doesn’t help out. In case of divorce the house is already set for the woman and she keeps all her assets but she can’t claim the man’s assets. Final equality and both will be equally responsible for any children they have together. If these are agreed upon and state legislated then lawyers will not be needed in case of seperation.

This idea could theoretically become reality simply by the individual that supports it refusing to become involved with a woman unless she has that house.

It’s not like it’s not been done before by uhh a “certain segment of society”.

Unfortunately it is unlikely to work. A woman with a house will want a man with a mansion, just like a woman without a house will want a man with a house.

The truth of the future is that women will be forced to buy those houses, but will live in them alone.

Men have standards. Women will be compared. DEAL WITH IT.

I thought she already did own the house, even if he or both of them were paying for it.

I like Happy_Bullet’s suggestion – let’s all agree to only date women who own their own homes. But then, in true gender reversal fashion, do I get to keep the house when we divorce? If so, sign me up. Free homes for men, yea!

Interesting idea but I cant see it working because of this part

If these are agreed upon and state legislated then lawyers will not be needed in case of seperation.

I’m sure the legal profession, hand in hand with the politicians would simply not alow something that would interfere with their earnings.

if you don’t trust your future spouse enough to jointly purchase property, you probably shouldn’t be getting married.

Hey Idiot, people shouldn’t be getting married regardless.

Marriage has become a feminist scam designed to turn a man upside down and legally shake out his pockets. Committment is fine. Marriage is a joke. There is no benefit to a man getting married. This has already been covered in another thread.

The first post on this board discussed married couples and the problems they face when divvying up property during a divorce. Obviously they would not face those issues if they were not married. But that’s not the point of the post and something you seem to have missed (among other things). If you don’t want to get married, fine. But if you do choose to marry someone, you should be able to trust them enough to invest in a house.

If you trust your future spouse you should be able to pay for the house yourself. Men have been doing it for centuries including building them with their own hands. It was women here who said they don’t need men for money but want to marry for love. Well 50% of the times it doesn’t work and 75% of the times it is women filing the divorce. These are bad odds when you include that the majority of times it’s the man that leaves the home they pruchased together. Purchased together usually means man paid women picked now I want to reverse it to woman picked and woman paid since you keep it.

Only one woman resonded it doesn’t seem like they really want their freedom of career. Could it be that 30 year mortgage means she would be stuck working instead of the choice of staying at home and letting her husband take full responsibility.
