Rapmaster2000: Laobaojun: Makes more sense than the "My actions shouldn't have consequences!  How dare you 'shame' me for being stupid?" crowd.

If you don't like getting shamed, don't be farking stupid.

Your strawman is fat.


Eyup.  Because the spoons and the marketing made it fat.  Its lack of control or wit had nothing to do with anything.

The rise of feminist thought is scary and we should judge people even though we don't know what is going on in their lives? Wow.

mister aj: This is only a problem if you marry American women. Entitled, biatchy, withhold sex and pork up once they're 'securely' married. My current wife grew up in Russia, where it seems they don't raise little girls to be whores.


And you can order them right off the internet.

mister aj: Actually real, I speak from experience. 10 miserable years before I found out that better women can be found outside of the country.


So you picked a bad one, then picked a good one, and extrapolated that to million of women in two different countries? Logic isn't your strong point, is it?

I married a really, really bad one, but I don't think every man in America is a psychotic bi-sexual stalker. Because I take responsibility for my part in picking his psycho ass.

urbangirl: So the woman you "loved" enough to marry is suddenly a "burden" when you discover she has mental health issues.  I really really hope you didn't mean that to sound the way it does.  Because if you did,  you are a HUGE a#$hole.


lennavan: I like to date girls long enough to know whether or not they are on psychiatric medicine to suppress their delusions, pathological lies and brutal violence before I ask them to marry me.  Seems like a smart idea.


See, she wasn't the same person off her meds. No one disclosed that there were happy pills I was supposed to force her to take until after the restraining order and the 72 hour psychiatric hold. Oh, and once you've called the sheriff's deputies out to deal with a psych patient off her meds she's never going to like you again.

And I look back at it now and realize the signs. My "evil monster of a mother-inlaw" was mostly nice, hadn't meant to raise the craze, and my image of her had been distorted by her portrayal by my crazy redhead. She had imaginary country kin built from family VHS tapes she had found somewhere, and if she needed a tale she'd attribute something to them.

Now, for the "gods must be crazy" factor. After all that drama I moved to Tyler, Tx, to go to school and get away from everything. I ran into a taller, pudgier clone of her. Then I ran into a middle aged clone. Then I saw this cute blonde in the grocery store one day I realized was a half scandinavian version of her. I thought I was going mad. And then it was all settled one day when I saw five of them at once on a dune buggy half way between Tyler and Kilgore. There's a whole clan of her kin right there, possibly a bit inbred. After I graduated I thought about hiring a detective to inform her about her kin in Smith county, but I figured they hadn't done anything wrong to me so I shouldn't subject them to her.

Just admit it, you want to watch people suffer. You're a sadist without a whip. A hastily built facade of Morality only serves to make you look like a sociopath AND a busybody.

This. Why should people that decided they can't stand to be together have to listen to some useless fellow in a poncy wig telling them they should, because *reasons*


It's not like they signed a legal contract or anything... Wait. Yes they did. If you don't like signing papers that bind you to anything, marriage is not your first option.

Satan's Bunny Slippers: MBooda:

So you don't care whether your marriage/divorce is enforced by the religious institution that controls it (and, except for some fundamentalist sects, lacks any economical or physical enforcement power), or by the state?

Well, since I never got married by a "religious institution", and don't subscribe to religion, yeah, I'm ok with the state.  I was married at the courthouse.


Oh man, you used the people's public courthouse to carry out your ritual?  I bet you put up a Festivus pole there too.

You can say you don't subscribe to religion, but if you got married, you engaged in a spiritual ritual. Unless it was conducted by your lawyer or accountant in his office. (A cow-orker of mine actually did this.)

You seem very argumentative.  I assure you I wasn't leading it that way.  I was merely interested in the background of your "not far enough" comment, which to me seemed to say "we need to shame all the divorcers!  SHAME THEM PUBLICLY AND FOREVER!"

And that just seems silly to me.


Nope, I just think that people who engage in a spiritual ritual like marriage should stick to their dogmas.  And not use my tax money to make or clean up their messes.

In England during the middle ages weddings were easy they were done anywhere and all you needed was to take vows and you can go hop in bed together. There needed no witnesses no ring nothing.
The problem was this ment that parents had no say in thier children's affairs since the youngest a child could consent was 7 years old. One marriage was a 5 year old to a 80 year old man. The Catholic church of the time started talking about this and desided "Okay that's enough!" and set the rules. The age of marriage had to be at least 12, there had to be a ceremony within the church and witnesses. This was for life because well if disease didn't get ya something else would.

miss diminutive: GBB: My current wife was iffy about the whole situation until I asked her, "If, after you and I are together for 11 years, you decide that you want to move on, would you want me to get upset and all possessive with you and do spiteful things toward you, or would you want me to accept it and deal with it like an adult?"

This sounds like my parents. Together for 24 years and just grew apart. They're still friends and my dad stops by to fix things at my mom's place because he's handy like that. Neither of them speak ill of the other and they just live their own lives.


Ah!  The real traditional approach.
Seriously, the European and Latin tradition of mistresses has a lot to do with not divorcing even though the passion and romance are out of the marriage.  Wifey has perpetual headache, hubby doesn't, no need for violence or the courts.  Amazing what adults can sort out if they are rational about it.

Yep. Describes my situation as well. Was married 13 years, and despite the occasional fight, we both just kind of realized that we were more just friends and business partners that didn't really have anything in common other than our kids. No animosity, no using the kids as pawns, no hatred or revenge plots.

DrunkBastard: wildcardjack: I should have sued my mother-inlaw for failing to disclose that my (now ex) wife required psychiatric medicine and had been institutionalized in her teens.

So, get married, no meds, suddenly she's MY burden! fark that shiat, I ditched that crazy redhead. And I do mean craaazy. Delusional, pathological liar that got brutally violent when you picked at her lies.

She'd be great on Fox News.

So YOU were her previous husband!  I should sue you for not tattooing a warning label on her somewhere.  Maybe we can form a club when her current husband drops her.


The disturbing thing here is that you make a joke in jest, but your profile says you're in the right geographical area to meet her... Was she going by Crystal or Katrina when you knew her? I mean, provided we're both talking about a plump redhead with a tendency to collect animals and a penchant for frogs in particular, wanted to study herpetology.

/Yes, I was amused when NOLa got hit by Katrina

This.  Way to blanket statement, AJ.  Even if you had a number of bad experiences in this country, that doesn't mean ALL women in this country are bad.

So, when you went through these 10 miserable years, were you looking for women with a compatible personality, or just those who'd dress up like whores and pay attention to you for the cost of a few drinks or a dinner?

/hmm, what's the real common denominator in those 10 years of dates...

No, he probably picked one that had her own will and life to lead, and then got a complacent one who was "trained" to let the man make all the decisions.  The "wrong" one was himself, not the other person.

My parents during their divorce could have used some shaming because they married when Dad was 21 and Mom was 16 and dropped out of school. Dad didn't rein in his Mom and tell her to go home and leave them alone.
Mom needed to quit looking for someone to replace her Dad after he died two years previously.

So yeah there needs to be blame laid on people who didn't use thier brains and now are divorcing after not having the IQ points to leave someone who was beating them, using them, and had problems and then had the dumbass idea that marriage and having a kid will make it all better.

Depends on the institution under which they were married. Personally I'd say yes except it's insufficient punishment.


"Punishment"? Because they want to end their marriage, they deserve judicial "punishment", even just a reprimand?

// anyone who's ever had to deal with divorce lawyers, that's punishment enough
// brother is currently divorcing his lawyer (soon-to-be-ex) wife, and both she and her lawyer seem to think this entitles her to everything she wants (to say nothing of their collective, and my brother's individually, negative net worth)
// judge awarded my brother the custody he asked for, essentially agreeing with him that she doesn't quite have the capacity to care for one kid, let alone 3 (under 5 years old, all; thank the gods her parents help)

Here is a good coping method. Clearly you do like  some of the things that taxes pay for right? Just imagine the dollars they got from you are the ones they used to pay for those things and the dollars they got from other people pay for the things you don't like.

Yeah, still blanket statementing, dude.  10 years with 1 woman isn't the same as knowing all the women in a single nation, and you may have just gotten lucky with your current wife.  Getting married for citizenship isn't a new thing.

Less hangups about sex? The fark have you been going to meet women? I know plenty personally who have no problems with one night stands, kink, threesomes, etc, but who are also decent people who, when they find a good match, stick with that person.

You seem far more concerned with saving your money.  People who stay together "for the kids" end up doing more harm to those kids.  If you are suffering 10 years of unhappiness, and your kids see you and your wife going through it, who's teaching these kids what a real relationship looks like? They are learning by watching you.

/you should have quit after your Boobies, and just let us all think you were only being a troll.  That'd have ended better for you.

This sounds like my parents. Together for 24 years and just grew apart. They're still friends and my dad stops by to fix things at my mom's place because he's handy like that. Neither of them speak ill of the other and they just live their own lives.

Ah!  The real traditional approach.
Seriously, the European and Latin tradition of mistresses has a lot to do with not divorcing even though the passion and romance are out of the marriage.  Wifey has perpetual headache, hubby doesn't, no need for violence or the courts.  Amazing what adults can sort out if they are rational about it.

Yeah it's nice till the mistress gets pregnant so the mistress needs money now to take care of Daddy's little secret.

Dr Dreidel:

"Punishment"? Because they want to end their marriage, they deserve judicial "punishment", even just a reprimand?

Only if it was a judicial marriage.  You live by the sword, you die by the sword.

Ya' know, just maybe there would be less incentive for this sort of law, if it was a little harder to get married.  Any pair of drunken dumb butts can get married with minimal effort or thought, and want to get divorced just as easily.

If you had to go thru as much education and testing to get married as you do to get a drivers license,  maybe the demand for divorce would drop off.

/witnessed way too many people in marriages that were too immature to be married to anyone much less an equally immature person.

vicioushobbit: mister aj: The ten years I speak of wasn't ten years of dating; if only. Ten years of marriage. I stuck around for the sake of young children, and for the sake of not losing half of my hard-earned wealth. After ten years of disrespect and piling on the pounds though, I just couldn't take it any more. Fortunately, Russian women have less hang-ups about sex and more respect for their body and their partner.

Yeah, still blanket statementing, dude.  10 years with 1 woman isn't the same as knowing all the women in a single nation, and you may have just gotten lucky with your current wife.  Getting married for citizenship isn't a new thing.

Less hangups about sex? The fark have you been going to meet women? I know plenty personally who have no problems with one night stands, kink, threesomes, etc, but who are also decent people who, when they find a good match, stick with that person.

You seem far more concerned with saving your money.  People who stay together "for the kids" end up doing more harm to those kids.  If you are suffering 10 years of unhappiness, and your kids see you and your wife going through it, who's teaching these kids what a real relationship looks like? They are learning by watching you.

/you should have quit after your Boobies, and just let us all think you were only being a troll.  That'd have ended better for you.


That's OK, after getting beat up here he can go home to his mail order bride and she can tell him what a smart man he really is.

Yeah because we *really* need to force people who hate each other to stay married. That never used to result in domesatic violence, lives full of misery or anything bad at all.

Go fark yourself politician.

This, I had to wait three months to get divorced, but I could get married tomorrow if I wanted to. The waiting period is on the wrong part of the process.

Why talk when we can skip straight to sex? And, amazingly, sex without anybody insisting that the lights are off, or that I do the housework first, or any number of manipulative episodes of bullshiat.
