I can see now that I'm in the process divorcing my wife of 6 years, what I believe to be the underlying cause of most relationship failures.
Women are apathetic and lazy... ESPECIALLY in regards to the images that they have been projecting outwards to the public since the start of feminism.
Here is the post that caused me to write this. Apathetic husband for too long...
This is a zombie post from 2011 and my comment is the last.
Sure, women have a higher enrollment and graduation from graduate school. You want to know what happens after they earn those degrees? They work well below their means and often for part time hourly wages. They will constantly talk about how 'I have a ____ degree! As if a piece of paper will force someone to pay them a certain salary for the sole reason that some institution gave her a piece of paper. You actually have to get a career going to make the degree worth anything! The reasons why they do this are many.
1. They want time with the kids (never ends, even when they go to school)
2. They want to have fun
3. They want to work from home (have fun / kids)
4. They believe a man should carry most of the financial burden
So what happens is that a young woman will talk a big game about how she's a 'strong female' and 'independent', how she 'doesn't need a man', how she 'takes care of herself', and all the rest of the typical bull**** that we all know to well.
Then, after marriage and after a few years of observing her backsliding on all her past ambitions and platitudes, the man determines that he's been lied to and is now being taken advantage of.
The man, never wanting or believing that this is how things would turn out become embittered, and starts to resent the woman. This causes
1. Poor treatment
2. Fighting due to the obvious resentment caused by to the glaring inequality now present in the relationship
The women now blames the man for the cheating, she will forever blame the marriage failure on the marriage on the cheating, bit this is only the smoke. The fire that caused the smoke is the apathetic and lazy attitude that women usually develop once they are comfortable in a LTR. FIGHT THE FIRE, NOT THE SMOKE.
