I just don't understand why Venker called her book "How to Choose a Husband". It seems awfully presumptuous and inconsistent with a lot of the rest of her views. I guess she figured "How to Make The Most of the Husband Your Father Has Chosen For You" wouldn't sell as well.

Women don't want some skirt wearing male at home. They want a real man who knows what a womans role is and what a mans role is.

Without sounding troll-tastic, is there anyone here in this post-feminist world that can explain what either of those are? I can't. Neither can my wife. Ironically, both of our parents can without hesitation. I completely agree that women want a man who knows what a woman's role is and what a man's role is. Problem is, I don't think anyone knows what those are anymore.

A real man is one who spreads his seed as far as it will go.

freeforever: Typical feminist overreaction to solid advice about finding a husband.  Sorry, but men like young, feminine women.  It's biological and will never change.  Young women in their 20s who cook, clean and do all that girly stuff feminists abhor WILL ALWAYS BE MORE ATTRACTIVE to men than 30-40 year-old career women with double Master's degrees and years of work experience that men of any value don't give a fark about.

Women are free to pursue their dreams and go to school and compete with men in the work force.  Just be prepared for how quickly your pool of potential suitors shrinks when you delay marriage.


1. Feminists abhor cooking and cleaning...because we like  not eating and wallowing in our own filth. Riiight.

2. You left 'fromsex' out of your username. Should go right in the middle there.

Men cooking without clothing just seems like a terribly dangerous idea. And penises, while utilitarian, are weird.

Ima4nic8or: omeganuepsilon: Here's a fascinating aspect of human nature.  We all have different personalities, and differing advice will work for different people.  Many women are subservient/docile, and many men are typical alpha males.  That is not to say ALL women should be docile, but in an age where we teach ALL women to be "strong/assertive" because of some moral belief, the opposite deserves as much airtime, as it were.

There is no given stereo type that any given person has to fit into.  If you are the type of person who's having troubles in a relationship, it may be wise to try something different.

THIS!!

The wife and I have very much the traditional woman stays at home with kids and cooks and cleans while man works and does all the mechanical work around the house sort of relationship.  Its not because I have somehow force the wife into a subservient role, it is because just is more subservient in nature and is very happy with this type of relationship.  To be honest I have been wanting to get her back to work in order to increase our retirement savings and kids college savings a bit. She, however, just wants to stay at home with the kids. Which will probably be the way it stays for at least a few more years until the kids are at school for full days.


And you think she's the subservient one. How adorable! :-)

She thought I was committed and too much in love.  I called her on it and she more or less said that it was time for me to know who she really is.  She thought I was bluffing when I said I wanted out and got meaner.

One of the last straws was a Valentine's Day dinner out.  She lit into me and went through a list of personal criticisms for about five minutes and loud enough for everyone else to hear.  And they did.  I sat there quietly thinking about the best way to dump her.

The boot was given about 24 hours later and I cut all contact.  According to mutual friends, she was a wreck and "couldn't understand where it went wrong."
