The comm-a-nist Bloomberg posted an article today titled Young Americans Are Killing Marriage.
The article says:
In 1980, two-thirds of 25- to 34-year-olds were already married. One in eight had already been married and divorced. In 2015, just two in five millennials were married, and only 7 percent had been divorced.
There’s a simple reason for why marriage is biting the big one in America. Young men have seen the misery divorce has placed upon their dads and don’t want to follow that path. And who can blame them?
Today, AWD had a meeting with a young salesman in my office. He told me he was going to get married in two months. I asked him if he had studied how his fiancee’s mother treated her father? He asked why? I said, a young girl will usually follow in the footsteps of her mother. If the mother is a controlling bee-yotch, the daughter will eventually treat her man the same. Trust me.
I counseled the young man the same I counsel my own sons. If you choose to marry, don’t have children until you are totally sure you can live with this woman until the children are adults. A divorced dad is screwed. Or, ‘FFL’ as AWD has put it. F@@@ed For Life! The divorced dad will be financially screwed until his early or late 50’s. Child support and, in some cases, alimony take any extra income the divorced dad could use to invest in his future. I’m not saying a dad shouldn’t take care of his children but the system is totally slanted to give the mother (no matter how big a disaster zone) custody of the children and up to half of the dad’s income. Even if the Dad had zero culpability for the divorce!
A divorced Dad is also screwed because he goes from seeing his children every day to seeing them every Wednesday night and every other weekend. Think about it. A guy who adores his kids and spends every possible moment with them is robbed of that because of divorce, many times divorces that are not his fault! But the laws in America screw men 99% of the time.
So is it any wonder young men don’t want to get married? Unless they have some religious qualm about having sex out of marriage (which is extremely rare these days), why would a young guy want to expose himself to the risk should the marriage end in divorce? And, by the way, it’s reported that half of all marriages end in divorce. Why take the chance? It’s not like women hold out the boo-tay anymore until a ring is on their finger.
AWD predicts that marriage won’t exist in 30 years. Unless laws are drastically changed and men are no longer screwed by the government, you can say goodbye to marriage. And women have done it all to themselves.
I’d like to see the government totally disassociated with marriage in America. Why does a man have to get permission from the government to marry and divorce? And why should a man abide by marriage and divorce laws stacked against him?
AWD is single. I have dated numerous women since my divorce. Most are so shallow intellectually, spiritually, and morally, there is zero chance of them meeting and keeping a quality man. I admit, AWD laid more cable than AT&T early in my post-divorce dating career. I’m no saint and haven’t always been a pillar of virtue but those days are long over.
American women, with few exceptions, aren’t worth dirt. Spoiled, bitter, self-absorbed jerks who consistently seek the man who doesn’t exist. The Bigger Better Deal. It’s their way or no way at all. What man wants to saddle up to a woman who only wants to suck him dry spiritually and financially while consistently pointing out all his faults? But that is what most American men face.
I’m not saying all women are bad and all men are good. I know there are good women and bad guys. But good women in America are harder to find than a salad at a Michael Moore dinner party.
I told the young man in my office today to never give up an ounce of his freedom to his wife. If he goes out a night a week with his compadres now, continue going out after his marriage. Because if he quits for a week or two, he will never get that freedom back. Women usurp freedoms in their quest to control every molecule of air a man breathes.
True story. AWD used to play golf with a buddy who made a good living and worked from his home. His wife didn’t work because of his earnings. Their kids were in school so the wife was free to do whatever, whenever. AWD and this friend liked to play golf during the week. But for us to play golf during the work week, my friend would have to put on a suit like he had a meeting, drive 30 seconds to the club, change clothes and play golf so his wife wouldn’t get mad. She, even though she didn’t work, hated that he enjoyed himself playing golf. After our round, he would go into the clubhouse, change clothes back into his suit and drive home like he had been at a meeting. Pitiful.
I CALL BULLSHIT ON THAT!
So is anyone surprised that young men who have seen their dads tortured through control and divorce don’t want to marry? What’s in it for them?! Risk!
I warn my oldest son every week to not fall in love until his dad checks out the parents and their relationship. If the mom wears the pants and treats the dad like sh*t, it’s sayonara bakachan! The daughter will eventually become her mom. And I’ll be damned if I let my son get treated like a @#*& doormat!!
Women like to ask “where are all the good guys?” The answer is, you’ve killed them all because you’re bad women! You took their children, their money, their homes, their futures, etc so now all they want is to get your legs in the air and then move on to the next victim! And you American women damn well deserve it! So sit on your Louis Vuitton purses and your BMW’s you’ve bought with your child support and spin on it!
We’re onto you. And we damn well make sure our sons are on to you and your female offspring.
Want your son to walk this down the aisle? Sheeee-ut!
