A conservative church, huh?
Been to a conservative church lately? The women are, by and large, ‘born again virgins’ who, prior to having their virginity restored by The Lord, went about bedding fifty to one hundred men during their “party years” (formerly known as child bearing years, but who says that any longer). The men are constantly shamed and told to “man up!” and marry these women because, you know, Jesus.
Meanwhile, men are constantly derided and instructed at how fallen they are. Compare mother’s day and father’s day sermons.
Mother’s day: “Mothers are a special gift from God that proves his love of all people. Mothers are the life bringers and prodivers of care and unconditional love. God bless Mothers”
Father’s day: “Men, you’re failing as fathers. You’re sinners. Man up and stop failing your children and wife. Too many abusive fathers! Too much failure! Man up like Our Lord and Savior commands!”
Yeah. Conservative church. Great. Unless you’re instructing to hit an actual Amish community, or some Mormon sects out in Utah, that advice basically tells men exactly the opposite of how to find a quality wife. Marry a used up, dried up “born again virgin” who has had more men in her than she her IQ count, sure, great, fantastic.
As to the article, I don’t blame men for not marrying any longer. It’s a huge legal trap and there is nothing, nothing, that it serves in the best interest of men any longer. Nothing. The moment Princess Pampered reads “Eat, Pray, Love” and decides to frivorce rape you, she gets cash and prizes, you lose most everything including the visitation of your children (if she wishes to make that so) AND you get to become an indentured servant. Yay!
