    Women want equality and liberation but, once achieved, insist on continually sucking the life out of the man they once depended upon. Is financial rape your vengeance or what?

    You may have had a new life forced upon you, you may have chosen it yourself. Either way a woman's entitlement whether supportive or not ends at the point where you are able to support yourself and/or the children of the union. You aren't fueled by need, you're fueled by hate.

    Men have rights too. Women should be made to account for every detail as are men.

    Fuck you.

    Pardon the vile vernacular. No personal affront intended.
    Beer talking.
    But I will say I'm terribly bitter about the inequities of post-matrimonial recompense.
    (Hangover talking) :D

    As a matter of fact, it has.

    Prior to womens lib, women had no job prospects. In a divorce, men had to support an ex-wife indefinitely with alimony.

    Now, many women make more than their husbands or are at least able to find work to support themselves

    Unless he snares a rich widow or heiress, any man that gets married needs his head examined.
