Yes.. it was a travesty 50 years ago if a man were to leave his wife and find a new girlfriend, and leave his family.
However ? women are not angles either, and they did the same thing 50 years ago also, fooling around behind their husbands backs while the men are at work trying to feed the family.
So ? don't try to make women out to be the angles that you are trying to do here.
And what is the excuse for women today fooling around on their husbands backs ?
Or women taking men for a ride and taking every dime he's got even though he didn't deserve to be treated that way.
I know a couple who were married 25 years, and she just decided one day " I don't love him anymore, but ? still got half of everything he owns ( even though, he got his wealth before he meet her ) is it revenge that women are seeking towards men ?
You know, women DO cheat on their husbands ? it's been going on since time began.
I am not trying to seek a argument with you, I believe you are a decent, honest, caring person who wants to do the best in the world.
but, you must also look at both sides of the issue, not just one side.
Women are not angles either, and I also know that men can be rats also in the way they treat women, but, women must also admit and recognize that they also treat men like dirt also.
I had a friend tell me onetime that he was watching the Oprah show one time.
It was about WOMEN WHO TAKE MEN FOR A RIDE FINANCAILLY ..... and he told me, when Oprah and the women talked about how they managed to cheat those men out of their money, they laughed about it in front of the whole national TV audience....
That's just plane WRONG, and if I saw a TV show were men treat women like dogs or cheat women out of their money, that is WRONG ALSO.

I saw how divorce devastated my family when my dad went out and cheated on my mom and we had NOTHING.
No money, or food, no nothing
BUT ????? it wasn't because my dad didn't try to feed us, or help us.
It was because my mom was a bad manager of the money my dad gave her, and also ?
She had to get her revenge against him, and was vindictive towards him, and spent the money some were else to make him look bad ( THAT"S PLAIN WRONG ) yes, he cheated on her, but,, that does not make her right to make him look worse than the situation already was.
My dad was always a good provider, and even after he left us, he did his best to provide for us, but, my mom wanted to " STICK IT TO MY DAD IN HER REVENGE ) and either spent the money he gave her unwisely, or spent the money somewere else.

You guys always seem to make light of those little affairs.

They are devastating to a marriage, it may just be sex on the side to you but to the woman it is the end of the relationship and trust. It may take a few years for it to dissolve the marriage but eventually it will and the woman will find she doesn't love the man anymore.

You only see the 'doesn't love him anymore' and not the actions of the man that brought her to that place.

You should look to the possible immorality of the men in their relationships and not try to simplify the failure of the marriage by always blaming the woman.

I see you defend your father for his affair yet condemn your mother for not being able to manage finances. You got some issues in there dude.

"Women are not angels either."

Never said we are. We are human just as the men are human and we make mistakes just as men make mistakes.

"fooling around behind their husbands backs while the men are at work trying to feed the family."

Huh? Are you trying to tell me that all women from the 40's and 50's cheated on their husbands while he is at work? Talk about reaching. Granted their were women who cheated but you can't condemn all women for the actions of a few. Also, when men cheated on their wives in the 40's and 50's, they weren't held responsible for the family they left behind because they had all the options and most of the power. Today, most of those same options and power belong to the women.

"So, don't try to make women out to be the angels that you are trying to do here."

Oh please! Quit putting words in my mouth just to suit your opinion. I NEVER said all women are angels!

"And what is the excuse for women today fooling around on their husbands backs?"

I don't know....why don't you ask a man who is cheating on his wife what his excuse is? It works both ways in case you have forgotten.

"Or women taking men for a ride and taking every dime he's got even though he didn't deserve it be treated that way."

This works both ways my friend. Men have been known to take a woman for a ride.

You seem hostile towards women because you are choosing to hold all of us accountable for the actions of a few. We aren't all evil.

You really should seek counseling for your deep rooted hatred of women.

So ? don't try to make women out to be the angles that you are trying to do here.
