Frank in California:
I once read an article about how most American women made terrible marital companions. I think the “consumer culture” has a lot to do with it. Women are conditioned to think that they must have the best of everything, even just starting out. Go into a mall, and see how many men’s clothing stores there are in comparison to women’s clothing stores. The other thing is that so many American women don’t feel that a man’s feelings are important.
By the way, 67 percent of all divorces are initiated by women. And men in their 40s are feeling very uneasy about being served divorce papers–because it happens a lot, and right out of the blue? Why? Their wives think they can do better, and want to get back out into the “dating market” while they are still “looking good.”
