    A girl =/= "compliant and shy". My god, what a disgusting way to put it. I am a woman I assure you, I am neither compliant nor shy.

I imagine that the men have women on the side. It all works great until the men get fed up, but most don't. They just travel. a lot. for work.

    The thing is that I know what's in it for the women, not so sure what is in it for the men.
    OMG! I would DIE!

    I actually know a mooby 6-figure guy with a hot bitchy wife. He DID have an affair. The only reason he stayed with his wife was his kids and because she would have bankrupted him in the divorce.

    What a crappy ass marriage that must be.

    And appearances can be deceiving. My hubby makes a good living. I'm a sahm. He likes me to dress a little tarty. Not prostitute tarty, but he likes it when I show off the goods (cleavage, lots of leg). I am certain that people who know us superficially or we meet at parties think that I am the typical gold-digger bitch. (Probably doesn't help that I am opinionated.) What they don't know is that he and I met when we were 16... way before he was earning any $$. lol

    Yeah- I was all WTF? I get being too busy at times- but sex is fun. Not a chore at all when you are attracted to your spouse.

    Sadly- they all take the anti depressents- in fact the holiday gossip was one lady caught her husband for the 5th time cheating. Honey, when you catch him 5 times, you just get divorced or call it an open marriage and be done with it. Oh the drama- they had to up her meds, the "suicide" attempt, the demonization of the husband. My recommendation to go find some hot guy and get laid as revenge was frowned upon. :-(

    It's all wild stereotyping but I'm itching to finally settle down and women my age, despite their best efforts, all seem to have if not outright troubled kids just kids that are unmotivated to do anything. And they're in their 20's. And spare me the economy, this was true even before depression 2.0. It's a deal-breaker only because it seems like the possibility of some tough love has long passed. That's not to mention the countless 50-somethings I work with now raising grandkids, because their kids can't even manage to pull it together to do that. I'd shoot myself.

    I have friends 1st gen immigrants that would dearly love to marry me off and I'm beginning to seriously consider it. These communities don't seem to have this problem.
    I'm baffled why you won't do it. Who cares about the language barrier if there is one?

    Super interesting, as the bitchy woman I mentioned takes antidepressants, too. So weird.

    If I were only having sex with my husband once or twice a year, I would fully expect him to have an affair. Hell, I'm surprised these women don't actually encourage their husbands to have affairs.

    It sounds like you need to find some new friends. I know these types exist, I've seen them in action, but make it a point to avoid them as much as possible because they make me want to go home and scrub myself. I have to wonder about the men who would marry these women, though. Women don't just wake up one day and decide they want to be a high-maintenance shrew. There had to have been some red flags. It seems they probably wanted trophy wives.

    Haha, these ladies are not my besties- they are friends of a friend and come with the territory. I don't worry about what they think of me and they are entertaining in small doses. I actually do see my friend picking up their traits and can sense her husbands growing annoyance.

    I actually see it a lot- guys get sucked in by really pretty women in their mid 20's. They were all very (visually) attractive at the time and still are today.

    And the cooking sections on that web site are very primal.

    That's really pathetic, that's like a man having a breast size threshold for women he will date. Maybe some guys are like that, but I wouldn't hang around people like that.

    I look for natural blonde/redheads who are taller than 5'10

    Which happens to not be in short supply in my area...
