Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage Should Benefit Men?

Quoting Quiverfull: Marriage Should Benefit Men? December 6, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Men Are Learning That Marriage is Nothing Good For Them

These are not written by Lori. but by her commenters. By first what sounds like one of the Men’s Rights Activists that Dalrock and Biblical Gender Roles appeals to. Another of Lori’s commenters explaining how modern marriage in their eyes does not benefit the man at all. Interesting that both Lori and the MRA guys have the same view of a perfect marriage. This says nothing good for the state of marriage in the CPM. 

“You have to realize that there is nothing Christian about the Government Sanctioned ‘Marriage Contracts’ that are being peddled now. They are nothing but tools for lawyers and judges to rob and steal from (mostly) men. Men are slowly learning that marriage is nothing good for them, and reacting by staying away from the fraud,” wrote Tim on my post Men Giving Up on Marriage.

Lindsay Harold responded: “It is true that, given the current cultural attitudes about marriage and the legal system, it is a huge risk for a man to marry. Culturally, society tells women to leave if they aren’t ‘happy’ and that marriage is for them to be served by a man and get children if they want them. So, many marriages continually revolve around the desires of the woman, trying to keep her happy by doing things her way to keep peace in the home and keep the family together. Men hate this, but many live this way because they don’t want to lose their family.

Thus, marriage today, for a man, often means he gets emasculated by catering to his wife constantly, being belittled and berated rather than appreciated, and then she decides she isn’t happy, takes his kids and his money, and goes off to do her own thing. It’s no wonder men are reluctant to sign up for that.

QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, cultural enforcers and those that seek to keep women submitted to men and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull and Spiritual Abuse honestly and thoughtfully.
