PsiChick: Well, yes, there is a chance, I just don't think it's very likely based on how the author of the blog is phrasing things and talking about what she does.I am also firmly of the opinion that most people in love are stupid anyway. Myself included.
Theory Of Null: Hey, if I needed to make 300 cheesecakes to get BJ's for the rest of my life, I'd do it in a heartbeat.//That's the equivalent of sandwiches for marriage for guys right?
Coco LaFemme: The guy sounds like a prick, and if she gets him to marry her, she deserves the misery that will come from spending the rest of her life with him.
shortymac: Julie and Julia.
umad: libranoelrose: Researcher: Coco LaFemme:Damn you posted a lot of this thread... but the thing I don't get, and this is re: marriage.Can you imagine how much money you would have saved on taxes alone?Romantic nonsense aside, marriage has and always will be a financial arrangement in addition to whatever cultural flavor of lovey doveyness you ascribe to. That's just leaving money on the table, I don't get it.Is this a trust troll?He has a point. She could save herself some money on taxes and take half of his shiat if she ever decides to leave. There are zero downsides for her./for her bf on the other hand...
libranoelrose: A Terrible Human: By the end of this that guy will never want to eat another sammich again.You never know...

lockers: PsiChick:Hey, genius? It's not a snap judgement if you're reading excerpts from the blog...that turn out to be literally the content of the page. Jezebel didn't take anything out of context, didn't screw up facts. It's the same damn scenario--a moran cares more about sandwiches than anything else, and another moran is sticking around for some reason. That's stupid. It'd be stupid no matter what gender was on what side, what color the people involved, or if the people involved were three-headed aliens.I feel sorry for your love life if you don't see there is at least a chance that this is a romantic gesture based on a non serious joke. Jezebel's response is infantile. Why do you think it is healthy to view every action as some power game?
lockers: PsiChick: Well, yes, there is a chance, I just don't think it's very likely based on how the author of the blog is phrasing things and talking about what she does.I am also firmly of the opinion that most people in love are stupid anyway. Myself included.This is the definition of a tempest in a teapot. Jezebel is making an argument that relationships are bad. The argument that romance is bad. People get out of relationships what they want. 300 sandwiches is not an example of imagined bogeymen. But I think you already know this.
netweavr: I don't get it, if it's such a bad situation why doesn't she leave him?
jayhawk88: RedPhoenix122: Has it always been like this, or is it just recently that Jezebel seems to be nothing more than actively trying to look for things to be upset about?You just described like 90% of the internet in general.
