The Marriage Strike Must Be Getting Worse


Oh man I can't believe what I'm reading but when the MSM starts to figure this stuff out you know things are getting bad out there. 

Young men giving up on marriage: ‘Women aren’t women anymore’

January 10, 2013 - Fewer young men in the US want to get married than ever, while the desire for marriage is rising among young women, according to the Pew Research Center.

Pew recently found that the number of women 18-34 saying that having a successful marriage is one of the most important things rose from 28 percent to 37 percent since 1997. The number of young adult men saying the same thing dropped from 35 percent to 29 percent in the same time.

Pew’s findings have caught the attention of one US writer who maintains that feminism, deeply entrenched in every segment of the culture, has created an environment in which young men find it more beneficial to simply opt out of couple-dom entirely.

Nooo! Really???

Suzanne Venker’s article, “The War on Men,” which appeared on the website of Fox News in late November, has become a lodestone for feminist writers who have attacked her position that the institution of marriage is threatened, not enhanced, by the supposed gains of the feminist movement over the last 50 years.

“Where have all the good (meaning marriageable) men gone?” is a question much talked about lately in the secular media, Venker says, but her answer, backed up by statistics, is not to the liking of mainstream commentators influenced by feminism.

“The problem? This new phenomenon has changed the dance between men and women,” Venker wrote. With feminism pushing them out of their traditional role of breadwinner, protector and provider – and divorce laws increasingly creating a dangerously precarious financial prospect for the men cut loose from marriage – men are simply no longer finding any benefit in it.

What? No benefit? This is shocking news I tell you.

As a writer and researcher into the trends of marriage and relationships, Venker said, she has “accidentally stumbled upon a subculture” of men who say “in no uncertain terms, that they’re never getting married.”

Unbelievable, tell those men to grow up and man up. Don't they know that it is their sole purpose in life to make women haaaaaaapppeeeeey. 

“When I ask them why, the answer is always the same: women aren’t women anymore.” Feminism, which teaches women to think of men as the enemy, has made women “angry” and “defensive, though often unknowingly.” 

Oh well, at least they still have the Pussy Beggars after them. 

“Now the men have nowhere to go. It is precisely this dynamic – women good/men bad – that has destroyed the relationship between the sexes. Yet somehow, men are still to blame when love goes awry.”

“Men are tired,” Venker wrote. “Tired of being told there’s something fundamentally wrong with them. Tired of being told that if women aren’t happy, it’s men’s fault."

Imagine that but don't delude yourself my dear, men have plenty of places to go. 

Going their own way is one of them.

Until the legal landscape changes dramatically, which I see as overwhelmingly unlikely, I can't see myself ever living with another woman again.

It is a Federal crime to fall behind on child support by $5,000,
and that means jail time. Where did all the good men go? They mean, where did all our slaves go? The Trad-Con women only want to play kiss and make up now that the free ride is ending. It isn't going to work. Men have wised up. Women are still nothing but a liability to have around no matter how much they claim they are not like that.

"The marriage strike must be getting worse"

Worse for WHO??? For us men, it's going GREAT!!!

1. There is no nagging, bitchy, fat harpy of a wife to micromanage everything you do, keep track of everywhere you go, none of her grudging acquiescence for sex (at best) or hateful frigid refusal (at worst), no ceaseless nagging to make more money (so that she can use it to buy more clothing and shoes for her, and new appliances and furniture for 'her' suburban McMansion), and find all kinds of never-ending weekend projects for you to do so as to improve 'her' suburban McMansion -- all done under the threat of a divorce given her by a man-hating legal system. And should she ever think that she's "unhappy" or "doesn't want to be married anymore", all she has to do is call 9-1-1 and say those three magic words, "I feel afraid".

2. There is no 'walking around on eggshells' from the constant danger of false accusations of Domestic Violence, marital rape, etc.

3. There are no spoiled, over-indulged children (that I can be sure will PROBABLY be mine) that will be endlessly coddled by their “most important” parent -- their mother! These children will be so special, that they will 'need' the most and latest designer clothing, toys, and the latest electronic gizmo that comes along, all so that they won't "feel unloved, underprivileged or neglected" -- all paid for by guess who? (Remember, it's 'for the chiiilllldreeeen'!

4. There is plenty of peace and quiet to rest and reflect at the end of the day.

This is just SOME of the wonderful things that the marriage strike has bestowed on us men, but you get the idea, don't you?

Yep, all things considered -- the marriage strike is going just great!

Men aren't getting married because more and more of us are realizing that there are NO benefits to it. Then there is the certainty that the woman will eventually divorce you, and with the help of the state, financially rape and enslave you. No benefits and all risk equals marriage strike.

Working in a workplace with a woman boss is like a marriage simulator. Except you exit the place at the end of the day. All women want is a slave.

I made the mistake of working for a woman once. Big mistake. What she called multitasking was a euphemism for chaos. One day she would say she wanted one thing then the next claim she never said that. Could never make a decision, always changing her story and constantly interfering in what I was doing. Total ding bat. The nightmare ended when she sold what was still left of her failing business.

I've had 4 women bosses. Two were old (near retirement now) and two were younger (between 35 and 50. The two younger ones were complete shit. They look over your shoulder and micromanage. They've got opinions that are harder then fucking rocks. They are just plain hard to work with. And about a day after meeting each of them, all I could think was how much I pitied their fucking husbands. Then I looked for another form of employ. I honestly wish I'd never gotten out of construction.

I was raised in Europe and only came to this country in my teens. Now 38 years old and never married, I began to reflect on why that is.

The truth is that after having dated two German as well as some other foreign born women, I now realize that most (not all) American women are under educated,entitled,uninteresting and near helpless as partners.
Foreign women always made me feel appreciated and viewed as an equal partner rather than an object of resource to be shaped and finished into a customized product for someone.

Add to this the sheer insanity of U.S. divorce law as it is stacked against men and it is little wonder that many of us men delay or opt out of a system that we have no stake in anymore.

I also realize that even on the occasionally lonely Sunday morning I am still better off than most of the men I know who are married to American women and infinitely better off than the ones I know who the American legal system of divorce has turned into broken, bitter cash slaves.

I think that this whole foreign women are better thing is getting old fast, women are women.

I'm dating a foreign woman and I must say, the whole "women are women" line is patently false.

I must say as a man who got raked threw the coals, called a murdurer and assasin in court for being a former special forced operater. I have come to the conclusion that women in america, france and the UK are suffering from a sever brain housing disconnect. many divorce by 33 only to discover at 40 there charm is gone and the bag of gold they sat upon has turned to old tuna. Then they cant give it away "well they do" but no one is taking it for keeps. by 45 they sing the blues because they are victims of many hump and dumps. In fact I have decided to make some videos about it on redonkulas.com, this will be my subject for the next year or so. there is so much material to cover.

The women being women thing is NOT the reason. The reason is simply there is no benefit for the man. The institution supports a woman's goals. The man loses in every way (freedom, financially, sanity) and gains nothing in return that he couldn't get from a long term relationship without the marriage contract. It's too risky. Pragmatically, it's just not worth it. The mangina men will still be around kissing women's rear ends in hope of breaking out of the friend zone but alpha males are too smart to take the bait.
