Do you mean to tell me that all those men who majored in feminist studies or global warming are not ‘economically attractive’???

When I was 24 I ended up taking a job in a rural community where every single woman my age was already married and/or had at least one child. Spent most of my time alone there.

".... Ironclad Prenup...."

I think you misunderstand. This gal and I are best friends. We're not married to each other.

Last time I checked, a friendship doesn't require a legal document.

As a matter of fact, that is an absolute unsolution.

The correct solution is what we disgarded to get to this point. The person who does something to end the marriage pays a penalty to the injured party they are disgarding.

That is the system which has been proven to work for centuries. It got in the way of chasing selfish hedonism, and was discarded. That mean that there is some panacea out there that will make one party discarding the person they entered into marriage not cause horrible damage.

I’m glad I figured it out. I found many college boys to be arrogant, entitled and incompetent at basic living skills.

“.... When I was in my 20’s, women never gave me the time of day....”

I had LOTS of women giving me attention while I was in my 20-30’s and single.

Unfortunately, almost all of them were MARRIED, many had children, or had been married. Several were engaged. Being married or engaged did nothing to stop them from having a fling with me. These were good looking women, not bar room skanks.

I ended up marrying a divorced mother with a son. But I refused to have Children with her. She and I have been married 35+ years.

From the movie, Fierce creatures, staring John Cleese, Jamie Lee Curtis and Kevin Kline:

[Vince opens the door and leans halfway into Willa’s office]

Vince McCain: Willa, can I ask you a question?

Willa Weston: Sure.

Vince McCain: Those breasts real?

Willa Weston: Yes.

Vince McCain: [Closes door, but we hear him through it] Yippee.

[Reopens door and comes in]

Vince McCain: You know, Willa, uh, you better be careful dressed like that around here. People will think you’re sleeping your way to the top.

Willa Weston: Just as long as they don’t think I’m sleeping my way to the middle.

"Truth is that many “blue collar” jobs require at least as much intellectual capability as many white collar degrees jobs and actually require far more in the way of skills and capabilities"

Amen to that!

Hell, I'm a doctor and I am in awe of some of these handymen.

They analyze the situation, come up with a solution, and fix the problem.

I simply don't have that knowledge or skills, so I pay them handsomely to do that for me.

If I had it to do over again, I would have never gone the MD route.

Too much time to get trained, and in the end you are up to your eyeballs in debt, and in my case, I don't make that much money for the cost in life-years lost.

If I'd become an electrician, I'd probably have a million dollars in the bank and owned my own business.

Maybe even nearing retirement.

But I can now never retire.

And what does an Economically Attractive male get in return?

I was not going to broach my pet peeve, except this is from the Christian Post, so here goes:

Professing Christian women, by and large, do not place an emphasis on a man’s spiritual commitment. It is merely icing on the cake, if it is considered at all. His earning potential and physical attractiveness are both far more important factors.

I have served in ministry, including in youth ministry. For two years in one church, I was responsible for all background arrangements for all weddings (from the church staff, not the marrying couple, angle). I saw plenty up close in both functions. I did not like what I saw.

I can count on my two hands the number of marriages I have seen firsthand in my entire life that to my mind mirrored to any significant degree the relationship between Christ and his Church.

Jesus Christ was not wealthy. The Apostles were not wealthy.

If professing Christian women want, first and last, a wealthy male, then let them stop pretending to be devout Christians. PERIOD.

Be hot or be cold!

If they effectively want to trade their sex for wealth, let them do so as honest heathen.

(By the bye: Many of those marriages that I witnessed, so readily blessed by the complicit hierarchy, ultimately ended in divorce. Maybe Mammon really is not the best master.)

Preaching to the choir on that one.

Took a one year deferral on my entry after being accepted into med school to take some time out for aviation and engineering research related activities and ended up abandoning med school entirely

Everyone thought I was crazy at the time but can’t complain about how it worked out.

Probably had more positive impact on medical field apply aerospace tech and blue collar fabrication skills to bio med engineering than I ever would have had as a doc

America really needs to re develop a new respect for the hard working men ( and women) who get their hands dirty and actually make things happen In our society

I'm reminded of a classic line from Firefly:

Inara: "Mal! You don't have to die alone!"

Malcolm Reynolds: "Everybody dies alone."

Did you see the recent FR post where the creator of sex in the city said she regretted making the show and she is sad and lonely. Big win for feminism.

I did see that. I hope some young women see that before it’s too late for them.

Marriage is more and more an achievement of status.
The traditional greeting to a bride is “Best Wishes,” and to a groom is “Congratulations.”

Why is that? Attracting a mate is an accomplishment for a man, settling on a man is a venture for the woman. Traditionally.
