    I'd have to lean towards no, but there's always an exception to the rule. I just can't relate to most American women I meet these days. Unlike the tone of this OP, I don't blame anyone. It's just that I'm only compatible with a person who, in all likelihood, does not exist. The biggest deal breakers I have encountered is that I am uncompromising in not wanting children, and that I'm bat**** crazy. I'm guessing it's mostly the fact that I'm bat**** crazy.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Did anyone ever shoot their wife under this code? Were women given a bullet by the husband's female relatives in case he played around?

    Just curious.

    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.

    All true and the " problem " of men not marrying is growing with no signs of slowing down or stopping.

    They are being insulted because people are starting to worry and do not know what else to do. It is not something which can be stopped. They are worried however as it affects the economy and many other parts of society.

    It is not a local problem in America however.

    Internationally men are bailing on marriage in growing numbers. What surprises me most is that the phenomenon seems to be bigger in other countries such as Japan where such men are called " grass eaters " which is borderline insulting in that culture. Australia is also concerned as is Canada and England.

    Worth noting before anyone decides to launch a collective bra-burning, "respect" =/= "subservience".
    Interestingly, a friend of mine and I were having this same conversation just a couple of weeks ago. She is from Macedonia, and a gorgeous, intelligent, and strong woman. She was lamenting that American men don't seem to feel comfortable with being a strong figure in a relationship anymore. It is not that she needs a strong man because she is weak, but that she wants a man who us willing to be her equal, so that she will not dominate him.

    Where the white wimmen at?

    But srsly, the two most attractive women currently in my life are the P.A. at the doctor's office. She's Latina. Then my new optometrist, a gorgeous babe of India descent. The latter might be white/Indian mix.

    Those two are gorgeous and they have the benefit of good annual incomes. Polygamy seems to be my absolute best option in this scenario. I just need to figure out how to convert them to Mormonism.

    Well, now take that and match it to all the television couples you see. As a culture, we do not encourage men to be men anymore, but instead seem to celebrate models of marriages in which "strong independent women" do, in fact, often dominate their husbands, or are constantly wiser than their husbands, etc. so on and so forth. If the old model was Leave It To Beaver, the new model is The Simpsons.

    Which system is better is a complicated question which rests on how we define "better."


    Most people will go for the "feel good" test in defining "better", from what I see here or in the nunbers. Why this is, I do not know. Possibly it is irresponsibility or maybe only not understanding the consequences.

    But it is the way our present culture seems to work. Not only here. The deficits are a similar problem.
