    Legalize polygamy and I'll re-think my marriage stance.

    LAWL although I'd say he's got more experience than I do!


    I don't think of Jan as straight-up mysogynistic, although some posts do lend credence to that. I think it helps to remember some men and some women and even some children are just not decent or kind or fair. There are awful people of all stripes, and unfortunately some of those awful people marry and reproduce and work and so on and so forth. I mean, we've all known some awful, conniving people in our day - and we try to not marry them if possible. Jan, on the other hand...

    I always pictured your stance on marriage had to do with you grabbing your ankles...

    You are absolutely right. When you ttreat a woman with kindness, generosity, tenderness and love, she will set your shit on fire because you are obviously sticking your purple veined monster in some other woman.

    My relationships became much better the time i became a self centered asshole concerned about me first. Putting someone else first bc that is what you were supposed to do just got me crazys, heartbreak and lots of empty pill and whiskey bottles.

    he may be serious, but he is also wrong. treating a woman like shit is a great way to get cheated on or have your dick cut off.

    I think my mindset is closer to Jans than everyone else's. I think this requires some introspection :confused:

    he might be. Remember that women as a group are not monolithic in terms of relationships. If you have a woman who's very self-centered and willful and demanding - that's one instance were you either stand up for yourself or be miserable.

    Also note: Mommy instinct is NOT universal. Remember this.
