Why You're Not Married

A double feature? I swear this was a coincidence - in fact I received this link as I was writing the last post. It's so relevant that I had to post it, so apologies for sounding like a broken record.

If I was a woman, I'd so have written this article. It's all true you know. Men DON'T want someone who's angry. And while we're on the subject, we don't want "challenging debate" either (and any guy who says he does probably has other things in mind).

The rest of the stuff is pretty standard, if not brilliantly written. In particular this bit is especially true in my anecdotal experience, and kind of ties in with my last post about which gender appears to want to sacrifice who they are more:

Because ultimately, marriage is not about getting something -- it's about giving it. Strangely, men understand this more than we do. Probably because for them marriage involves sacrificing their most treasured possession -- a free-agent penis -- and for us, it's the culmination of a princess fantasy so universal, it built Disneyland.

Although of course that reasoning up there about free-agents is purely metaphorical for some. I'm talking about me, by the way.

Thanks to Fatima Cassim (who, by the way, also happens to be a woman) for the link.
