    Men: Would You Marry an American Woman?[W:771]

    If given the chance to re-marry would you marry (another) American woman?

    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.

    Unfortunately, I think you're right, to a certain extent. It seems to be primarily a phenomenon of younger women (and some in my own age group as well), and I think it may be related to the high divorce rate today, and the number of women who never bother to get married, then raise children without a father figure. Some of these women reinforce to young girls, how worthless men are, by the simple act of calling the child's father a "sperm donor" or "bio dad", essentially implying that the only value a man has, is his sperm, and once the impregnating act is over, he can be discarded (except for the child support, of course ).

    Re: Men: Would You Marry an American Woman?

    I can certainly see the appeal of marrying a woman from a more "traditional" foreign culture. From what I've seen, they're more feminine than their American counter-parts, more stable, and more willing to put in the work necessary to make a relationship work.

    That being said, however; American women can be fun as well.

    Don't get me wrong. I wouldn't marry a ball busting harpy or Liberal feminist ideologue in a trillion years. However, I think there are more than enough "old fashioned" women lurking around in the United States to not render the idea of marrying domestically a complete non-starter.

    Of course I would, if I was ever in that situation. Now I would never marry a liberal woman, those are the ones that are not committed to a lifelong relationship. Every single conservative couple I've known has been married "until death do you part". I think if you get a divorce at all, you're doing it wrong.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Presumably, the person I marry is someone I love.

    I would hazard a guess that the fact that I love them would be the primary factor when deciding to marry...and I'll crawl out on a limb and suggest that someone who takes into account other criteria (like nationality or ethnicity) and places their priority higher than love is likely a future divorcee.

    Haven't made up my mind. Either Asian or Russian/FSU. Decisions, decisions.

    That's a terribly simplistic view. People have a habit of masking their flaws in order to gain trust, only to change radically once the commitment has been made. This fact has overwhelmed even the most principled of people who once thought as you do now.

    That's only when people rush to the altar and don't take the time to get to know their prospective mate. If you haven't known them for at least 5 years, you're doing it too fast.

    Many years of experience with women, tells me, that women nationality does not matter.
