The world today teaches males at a young age that women have “options”, men have obligations.
Why? Because men (very reasonably) say, "Why should I pay for her choices?" There's a logic there that's unanswerable.
“The world today teaches males at a young age that women have options, men have obligations.”
Yup. And men are reacting predictably: they’re going on strike. None dare call what’s happening a marriage strike, but at it’s heart, that’s what it is.
Yep bingo. Any intelligent young male knows not to take an American lady seriously. My older brother is happily married to a Mexican woman.
