    I never claimed or even implied either. What storybook are you reading?

    Still sharp as a tack, eh?

    If you don't believe in civil marriage, don't get a civil marriage.

    Bam. Cardinal solves another national debate.

    "I'm a strong woman that can take care of herself. My husband owes me Alimony for staying at home. Really, if you calculated all I did for "him" I should have earned more than a hundred thousand a year." Btw, that last bit you will find on feminist sites all over the internet.

    Oh, and sorry, but women don't make the decision for the man they are with. The whole, I did it for "him" is complete tripe.

    Yes, I saw that. Why should the law enforce a contract they can't prove exists?

    I don't want anyone to have civil marriage, because I want equal tax treatment

    Civil marriage is a huge liability... Over 50 percent odds of divorce, and you can be liable for half your estate, plus alimony. The real kicker is "no fault" states.

    Any man who gets married in California, for example, is not thinking straight. You can have a wife who stays home all day doing her nails and bangs the gardener, leaves you for the pool boy, and she can be entitled to half your estate plus alimony

    Not a very smart choice when you can just shack up with a young hottie and trade her in for a better model whenever you want

    Sounds like civil marriage isn't for you.

    Yep, pretty much the principles of feminism go out the door when there's a chance to be vindictive and get free money out of it. For some. Some women are against alimony and I do respect that
