Even though there's no way in hell I would have ever agreed to an arranged marriage, I'm beginning to think (objectively speaking) that it can't be any worse than what we currently have.



Arranged marriages have much lower divorce
rates than love marriages. The concept of
marrying for love is very new, maybe 500
years old. Many societies still have arranged
marriages, it's really the better way.

I agree. Marriage is best looked at as an economic institution, not an emotional institution -- because that is what it has been for the majority of its history. That is why many find it so offensive and outdated today.

I often look at the gay-marriage debate from this perspective. The default liberal position in this country is to support gay marriage, but I think that is missing the point. Progressives should be fighting to end the institution of marriage, period. It's obsolete and it subordinates women. Marriages also have an unacceptably high rate of failure and often lead to unnecessary legal battles and expenses.

If you love someone, love her. You don't have to involve the courts and the state in your relationship.

Jennie made an appearance in this thread earlier today. Not a single person noticed. I guess because she didn't attach any racy pictures.

most everyone noticed but a few the others were just upset she didn't address them.

Don't take advice from some hardened female bartender. How dose she know what women want, when women have no clue what they want. I am sure she was right on a lot of points. However who really dose them things? It may be fun to joke about and all, but i doubt anyone here is dumb enough to think that crap will get them anywhere.

Defiantly don't take advice from anyone over the age of the girl you are trying to hook up with. especially if they spend 90% of their time on the internet.

I would never lose an ounce of sleep if "juiciejennie" did not show up on any given night, but I'd probably lose an hour or two if a "juiciejenner" ever did.


If'n I'd a knowed you wanted to have went with me - I'd a seen that you got to get to go.

Let's get the juvenile antics out of the way now and try to start acting like gentlemen around 11:30 PM when Jennie usually shows up.

nice guys finish last.
