While I was coughing my guts out late last night, I was listening to an older episode of This American Life. This older American gentleman had a bit of an asian fetish, and thought that if he found one to marry, she would be perfect. Perfect meant subservient, happy, quiet, and basically taking care of the household. Of course, when it started to come out, his relationship with this young gal from China hit the fan when she demonstrated a will of her own and didn't take his need to find a pillow for a wife. I almost felt disgusted when they finally got hitched. He improved himself, but that sort of attitude toward women must keep going throughout, you know?
"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
There are many good American women and I married one but there are also some fruitloops. An enlightened progressive woman is not worth planning a life with, a date maybe but not a life.
If you're looking for a honest trust worthy partner at a bar you'll probably get to experience a divorce to go along with your date.
