@John Michael actually seems to be of the few on this forum who think independently. You guys just don't agree. People have different views and values and thats fine.The greatest destroyers of marriages after the mother in laws are the wife's friends.
The strong conscious women can stand up to both easily and dictate the whole thing, but the weak ones will fall face first into those traps and no matter how strong the husband is, he is simply powerless to do anything about it as she burns the whole house down.
The record divorce rates speak for themselves. You can essentially classify a human into 3 distinct categories
1) The consciously awake (very few in number)
2) The sheep ( the fast majority)
3) The consciously dead. (sizeable number)
Since the majority are sheep, that's the one a man is more likely to end up with, now providing he fits the first category himself, he has his work cutout for him, he will have to try to elevate her to the same position as himself which is a gruesome tiresome long process, but it has to be done otherwise that sheep may end up throwing herself of that bridge or set the whole house on fire.
The thing about a sheep is that the herder dictates, that herder is either the husband or it's someone else that's taking the sheep to the wolf's (her mum/friends/society/state or some poisonous -ism etc)
Now I class you as a sheep, so yes if I am unfortunate enough to end up with you, all that poison has to go, you will only graze in organic green pastures and keep being closely herded this way until you make that transformation into a conscious being.
