  1. I don’t really see your point. Are you suggesting that rather than get married that young men pursue happiness? (Which from your article I assume is found outside of marriage?)

    I’ve already come to that conclusion given the risks modern men face in marriage, risks that don’t have to be taken by women. It’s quite sad really. A few of my friends have started getting married, and I can only pity them now. We don’t see each other anymore, and when we do get to talk I can hear the stress in their voices constantly. I’m imagining they’ll all end up divorced pretty soon. Let’s just hope their ex wives have mercy on them and don’t leave them completely destitute…

    • Actually I feel that you have things cofused. I was trapped by my refusal to recognise that I was holding unreasonable moral standards. If I had left the marriage with my son we both would have not suffered prolonged abuse.

      From the sounds of things divorce would be better than bad marriages. I would first try counseling, which I did for twelve years. But if the spouce is not willing to try counseling as my wife was, or as I often heard as an abuse hotline worker the spouce would dismiss the couseling in one form or another.
