    It’s an old Greek tradition. Women go into the bedroom the wedding nite and stick a knife up the woman’s vagina. If it doesn’t bleed she’s a whore.

    Fair enough, just checking. I grew up for a time in a small community like that. Everyone knew what everyone else was doing.

    Thankfully, we moved before my high school years.

    Riding horses before one's wedding night could be a problem, then.

    What is wrong is that this "virginity" thing has been dumped on women for so long, just because of some obsession that men have, and we have borne the brunt of it, even though it does nothing for us. How many women and girls have wasted their time being yapped at by priests when they could have been out having some fun.`

    What is wrong is that this virginity stuff has been marketed to women and girls in terms of "right" and "wrong," while we have established that there are no questions of "right" and "wrong," "morality," and "religion" actually in play.

    Women might want to know where a man's penis has been before they partake. Also, women might like to try out a few before picking one for good. It works both ways.

    Do you think the women’s liberation movement has a role in the destruction of the traditional family?

    Of course it does. From women not staying virgins to women working, these things have changed the way we live.

    There may be some bad things that happen because of this. For example the mom being controlled by the husband. Now that she works she isn’t so dependent on the man. And she’s not home raising the kids if she’s working. These things have changed our society for the worse. Kids aren’t being raised right.

    But I’m sure women love being independent.

    So women won’t go back to staying virgins till marriage. I don’t think it’s a good thing that she’s had multiple other dicks inside her.

    And divorce isn’t good but women love having the option.

    The only people who can make a success or failure of a family and child-raising are its two adult heads, both partners.The onus should not be on the woman, when they are both present.

    Your statement about people and their genitalia is just plain grossly disgusting, totally shallow, and reflects a repulsive notion that women are somehow less than men and the man is marrying an inferior being.

    It also reflects an attitude that sex is somehow dirty and shameful. Many Americans seem to feel this way, as do their counterparts in the Middle East. I wish that these people would not try so hard to wreck heterosexual relationships.

    If you love and respect a person, you accept who he or she is currently, which involves the sum total of their past experiences. If one cannot accept this simple concept, this person has no respect and should not marry.

    People who’ve had sex with other people before marriage tend to have sex with others after marriage too.

    And they divorce at higher rates.

    I didn't know that. After reading so many posts on USMB about people going on military tours (and then we know the rest of the story), I'm pretty cynical.

    A little story: after my mother died in 1995 after 52 years of marriage, my father was leafing through Washingtonian magazine when he came across the person ads. "MWM, seeks" "SBF seeks," etc. and he asked me what the abbreviations meant. Boy, did his eyebrows ever go up. I asked him what he thought about all these divorces and carrying on, and he said "people just don't mean what they say."

    He loved the phrase "tell it like it is."
