a father should be able to deduct what he spends directly on his children.
It would really burned my butt to be giving money to a woman in that circumstance.
One disadvantage a man has is that his "assets" can easily be separated from him. Taking money as a form of compensation, or penalty has a long historical standing.
The two main "assets" a woman traditionally brings to a marriage is not separable from her - vigina and domestic services.
It is not woman bashing. I just stated the fact that traditionally a woman provides sex and domestic services. A man traditionally provides financial support. When a relationship ends, the man's contribution is easily separated from him, while the same is not true for a woman.
Furthermore - in most cases courts give the children to the mother. It is my impression that traditionally the children were viewed as belonging to the father (example - why do the children carry the father's family name?).
I find it odd that when a relationship ends, society sees an ongoing obligation on the part of the man even though the woman walks away with all of the assets. The man is left without his children, sexual services, domestic services, and a child support bill.
Please retract your warning.
Quote from: "Dr Evil"Quote from: "Kyo"Wouldn't it be better to take up a collection for Rich Gorman so that he can have a bit of a nest egg when he finally gets to begin his life?
(Not that Kathleen isn't worthy of recognition... but if we're giving stuff away here...)
If you want to take up a collection for this young man I think that is a great idea. My preference would be to praise the writer. In this case it might be like making sure Paul Revere knew that he was doing something very important and thanking him for it. There were probably lots of Colonists who could have used thanking or a collect plate but it was Paul who sounded the alarm and in our case will continue to sound the alarm especially if the feedback comes in loud and clear that what she is saying is appreciated and thought to be important.
You can bet your ass that she is taking heat from the fembots for this. A little counterweight doesn't hurt.
I'm game for some sort of thank you for Parker - she is indeed a friend. Once a mechanism is in place to for this post it on the BB so we can make it happen.
You are right, johnnyp, and you have my support. I did not see your comments as "bashing" but as relaying the unvarnished truth of the matter. Does a man get companionship in marriage? Only if he is lucky; otherwise, he will be manipulated through mind games and constant nagging. A man is supposed to carry on with his marital role as "provider" in a divorce which was likely forced upon him and gets nothing but grief and debt in return. The man ends up objectified as a wallet. There is no justice whatsoever to be found here. Marriage today is a mockery of what it once was.

This is woman bashing. Cut it out. That's a warning.
male (sic) are less likely than women to complain
I've taken a few flights "Space-A" on them (Space-A is Space Available - you can ride for free if there is room)
Why don't they seperate they men from the woman's matches altogether, and then base the prize money on the box office draw?
I think we would see that the woman are already riding on the coat-tails of the men.
How many legal diapers are we willing to put on women to keep them from having to take adult responsibility? ***** pampers?
