Never date a woman you can hear ticking.
– Mark Patinkin
Men are often said to be weak creatures, a fact disputed by most in the usual pseudo-machismo complex that often exposes our very underbellies to the scheming women of our lives; men often want to get their way by acting smart while women will often achieve virtually the same result by acting dumb….. that, my friends, is the dissection of the male/female conundrum; at least in my opinion.
The question that eats at my heart (do men have those?) has to do with a recent conversation and a series of events that followed; whilst seated with a bunch of married women the topic shifted, predictably, to marriage… what came to the fore was that, according to these ‘happily’ married women, there is a belief that men are never ready to settle down and their hands must be forced; accordingly all weapons are to be deployed and it be considered fair. What I took away from the ensuing talk was that women see no issue in conniving to use deception, trickery, intoxication among other schemes to get themselves put in the family way as a means to tie down wayward bachelors, they will even get another donor and then dump the responsibility of a swollen belly on a hapless bachelor who has refused to settle down.
Now the bone of contention is this; should a man discover in time that he is being set up and act accordingly, for instance demanding the use of emergency contraception, and the woman stubbornly refuses to do so…. What happens? Does he have to sit on his hands and watch from a distance as a life decision is made for him? Does he have a right to make that b***h swallow the pills whether she likes it or not by literally shoving them down her throat or should he say, oh, well… my goose is fried, time to move in with her? Either way I think it’s very sad that our women have had to stoop this low, marriage being something most women want yet there being very few marriageable men is no excuse. It helps to remember that the only really happy folk are married women and single men.
