They've been steaming pile of sh*t since Michael Kinsley left.

Taking honestly is good for your marriage. Needing an affair to get there is probably not.

I loved the sneering condescension toward people who (gasp!) dislike affairs.

By affairs of course they're referring to women who are adrift and neglected
Conversely men who cheat are bastards with Peter Pan complexes
Complete horseshiat

Does anyone remember when Slate was a bastion of journalistic integri...hahahaha. oh man, almost got there.
 
2013-11-05 09:11:46 PM
Nobody trolls like Troy Patterson.  His "I hate fireworks" article is repeated every year.  People can't get enough rage at the elitist, hipster, black guy.

It's clickbait. Every word is designed to get your dander up so you pass it round with an "I can't believe what this asshole said!" link.

Hey, if it worked for Bill and Hillary, it can work for any one.

Hanna Rosin the author of this article, is a fraud.  She has been removed from several publications because of her really really stupid ideas.  Personally I don't condone marriage, I do condone lots of sex and with whom ever makes you happy.
 
2013-11-05 09:22:45 PM
I don't click Slate articles anymore -screw them.

Meh. Monogamy is a social construct. It's not humanity's natural state.
 
2013-11-05 09:23:33 PM
I can honestly say that if my wife were to allow me to sleep around, that would probably make her a keeper for life.

Unfortunately, this is not a reciprocal arrangement.
 
2013-11-05 09:25:35 PM
That awkward moment when your wife sees lab tests on the explanation of benefits is always fun.
 
2013-11-05 09:26:34 PM
Well, I wasn't aware that my marriage was in trouble. But if going out and taming some strange is what takes to keep it going, I guess that's what I have to do.

And people who had a fit over Fark's redesign should see the front page of Slate. Total jumble of article panels placed in no particular order. I don't even bother going there anymore, I can't figure out where to find anything. It's just a webpage of spattered headlines. And on top of it now they write even shiattier articles.
 
2013-11-05 09:27:55 PM
Fark decides to stop including links to Slate.  Nah, just kidding, greenlit.
 
2013-11-05 09:28:14 PM
This is not a new theory. I've grown up surrounded by people who claimed the same. That straying every once in a while leads to guilt which leads to treating your partner better as penance.

None of that implies that you're honest with your spouse. In fact, being dishonest is the cornerstone of why this works at all. If you were honest, you'd probably just be unhappy and stuck in a relationship with someone you truly love or separated from that person because they won't accept your desire to stray.

That's what my ex-wife said right before i found out she cheated on me.

Oh c'mon, they're nothing alike. One is having only one choice of who gets to screw you. And the other is monogamy.

Steak is great. You could have the best filet mignon every day and suddenly just one day want some taco bell.

It doesn't mean you don't love steak anymore.

Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but when I'm in relationship with someone I truly love, I don't feel unhappy or stuck.

Hey guys, if things have been rough at home - like this on your facebook, and tell all her friends and family, "Two wrongs don't make a right."

His point is that you look like the kind of girl who could use a second head of state all up in her parliament, na'm sayin', and the poll for a prime minister is coming right on up, girl, so you'd better be ready for me to... uh... uhm...

This metaphor has failed. Sorry.

I'm not buying it. My ex wife hated me after I had sex with her sister... and friend... and a couple randoms. She ended up banging my best friend and then divorcing me and marrying him. Strange world we live in....

This kind of thing is actually pretty normal on television dramas like Beverly Hills 90210. But they are all still friends, even after swapping partners several times over the years.
 
2013-11-05 09:44:16 PM
Think of the page views, Slate! Think of the revenues these sponsored links (probably) make, Fark!

When I was in college I always wanted to end up living in Melrose place, because you never had to leave the building to tap all kinda crazy ass.

Affairs are survivable, but they do not "save" anything in and of themselves. All they do is hurt people.
 
2013-11-05 09:57:19 PM
Slate used to be a solid, hard hitting source of journalism.

They have steadily drifted into fluff territory. I am disappoint.  Plus their new website design is F-ing horrible.

Yeah, but a steak doesn't care if you have Taco Bell.

As a married guy I'm totally understanding that this stuff is all very complicated. I can see that a guy can totally still love his wife (or a woman love her husband) and cheat, but that is still a clear betrayal of that love.

It just means that occasionally you'd like to clear your pipes with something that will REALLY clear your pipes.

//and if you go behind steak's back to get some ground "beef," you may wake up one morning and find steak knife turning your tube steak into fajita strips.

Done in one. I actually learned about Fark from Slate, Jack Slater, me thinks. Is he still there? I also don't frequent it now that I've been sucked in by you malcontents.

Ugh been on the receiving end of the affair and a marriage "saved" by a counselor.  14 years later a separation ended up being the throw.  I probably should not speak on this topic at this point.

Not really. It only shows how strong you already were, even if you didn't know it at the time. And even then, things like this typically come quite close to killing even the ones who survive.

Yeah, I can't see myself ever trusting a person ever again if they cheated on me. Would break the relationship permanently in my case.

Here's to my future unhappiness.
