Statistics and Matrimony

There is a lot of divorce porn around in which a not very attractive woman ditches her boring unexciting husband, and then lands a six foot eight inch tall highly athletic billionaire. File that with ones where she marries an immortal vampire or gets abducted by pirates, sold into the Sultan’s harem, and becomes the Sultan’s favorite. The author of “Eat Pray Love” attempted to carry out her novel in real life. Wound up marrying a man in need of a green card, much older and poorer than her ex, who dumped her shortly after his green card came through. And if you are a woman approaching thirty that is what will happen to you if you don’t let your husband get a word in sideways. He probably will not leave you, but if you don’t treat him respect, you will wind up making the extremely bad decision of leaving him. Much as so often sex “just happened” even though you were not really planning on it and it was a really bad idea, divorce also “just happens”. Women inherently lack agency, and really bad decisions just keep “just happening”.

  1. Boxer, I missed you at my site Qedbook.wordpress.com . . . If Dalrock can get a metric ton of your posts for nothing, go to someplace where you’re actually known and missed.

    I rely on you.

    I’ll have daily new articles for the rest of this week. Pick your choice to comment on. I will reply.

    ed: I don’t mind you coming here to hawk your web page, but this is becoming more like spam than conversation. I comment where I like, as the mood strikes me. Hopefully we understand one another.
