    Increasingly the answer is "no".

    Men are increasingly disrespected by American women. They face extreme economic and social disadvantages in family law that makes it possible for a wife to divorce them and take most of what they have including their children for any reason or no reason. They are constantly told that they are worthless and stupid. Disrespect for men has become standard practice. Men are disrespected by their wives – they’re disrespected publicly, they’re disrespected privately, they’re disrespected and then told that they have no right to be upset about it because they aren’t worthy of respect in the first place.

    Disrespect of men is a joke to Americans now.

    The result has been that men are increasingly dropping out of society. They don't marry, they don't go to college because they see no reason to break their humps to get ready to provide for a family -- they aren't going to be having a family.

    Lots has been written about this phenomena, most of it in the strain of "why is it that men are so childish now." But men are not dropping out because of arrested development. They are acting rationally in response to myriad laws, attitudes and hostility against them for the crime of happening to be male in the twenty-first century.

    I had the good fortune of marrying and Asian woman almost 48 years ago and I am so spoiled that I could never marry and American woman unless she is Asian....To this day she treats me like a king.... I mean no disrespect to any Caucasian American female though...........

    I prefer an educated and independent woman. If I want a pet, I'll buy a fish.

For whatever reason, it's doesn't seem that men are so scorned in other parts of the world- even those in which women have equal rights and are independent-minded.

    Years ago, when I was in the Army overseas, I think the one thing that kept most of those guys going was the thought of getting home to American girls. They were the best in the world. Guys spent all their time thinking about them, talking about them, looking at pictures of them and dreaming about them at night.

    It is a terrible thing that dream may now be gone for young American men. Gone is the worship and respect they had for those girls. Hurt even worse are those traditional American girls that do want a home, a husband and a traditional family. The feminist movement has betrayed them worst of all.

    No, no it's not. Not everyone's experience fits into your little box.

    If you haven't known them for at least 5 years, you're doing it too fast.
    People change dude. Some for the better, some markedly worse. There are scores of couples out there with 20 years together only to have one of the spouses have multiple affairs, become verbally or physically abusive etc. etc. You're once again dumbing down what can be a very complex situation, no matter the time spent together before marriage.

    Yeah, there is not widespread "disrespect towards men" in this country. The premise is just ridiculous.

    Say What?! Omg, are you for real?

    I was married TO A MAN for many years, and I absolutely love and adore them- some more than others. I call my girlfriends girlfriends, because they are girls, and they are my friends. I call my guy friends, guy friends, because they are guys, and they are my friends. If I have a male companion, who is more than a friend, he will be in a category all his own.
