Marriage and Divorce

Dalrok has a post up that every married man, or every man considering marriage, should read concerning the ease with which women will destroy their families out of nothing more than "feeling unfulfilled." From the article he cites:
The common factor amongst all of these women is that they say that their husbands are really solid, good, nice men. They are not victims of physical or emotional abuse. They are not married to felons. They are not married to alcoholics or drug addicts. Their husbands are not having affairs. In fact, they tell me, there really isn’t anything “wrong” with their husbands … they just don’t want to be married to them anymore because they have fallen out of love.
The social contract used to be simple: men want someone to bear their children and keep their home and provide emotional support and sex; women want a man who loves them and children and the security of a home in which to be kept. But now the rules have changed. There's no need for all that demeaning cooking and cleaning and sex; just divorce your husband - no reason required - and the law requires him to support you and the children. You'll have the house and the car and the furniture and the appliances, and a good chunk of his income, and even the ability to restrict his access to the children. As you should, as he probably now lives in a shabby apartment and sleeps on a mattress on the floor. You wouldn't want the children exposed to that kind of lifestyle anyway.

Which takes Southern Man to a business deal that he was asked to consider a while back. Paraphrased from this post at Danger And Play:
Hey, Southern Man, think about this. We work well together and I think we should sign a lifetime employment contract. I’m an honest person, so let me make some disclosures. You will remain employed at-will. This means I can fire you for any reason or no reason at all. I can fire you if you bore me. I can fire you if I'm in a bad mood one day. I don’t even need to explain my reasons. I don't even have to have a reason. You’ll just show up to work one day, and your stuff will be gone.

Now, this arrangement has a 50% chance of failing within ten years. If it does fail, for any reason at all, you’ll pay me 50% of your net worth outright. You’ll then, depending on the judge enforcing our contract (and, yes, this particular type of lifetime contract is enforceable) pay me anywhere from 30% to 70% of your earnings, in the form of a monthly check, each month for the next ten or fifteen years. Sounds like a great deal, doesn't it? Sign here!
Surely there's an upside to this, isn't there? Right? Sure, there is. But is it worth the risk?

Southern Man's (admittedly jaded) opinion: any man would have to be absolutely stark raving crazy to sign such an agreement in today's climate. Yet they do, every day.

Feminists love no-fault divorce. It's destroyed countless millions of families for no reason. And Southern Man suspects that feminists love that as well.

then why in heavens name do you date and marry someone who is a feminist? seems like you are attracted to them in the beginning but hate them for what they are. you state ever so often that you attend church. find a real woman and date her. by the way...real women hate sex, but are in bliss with making love. learn the difference and life will be the way it should be in a marriage.
