Which laws kept marriages intact?

03 Jul

Hear, hear!

It’s surely not just changes in laws regarding divorce that brought us to where we are today, but no doubt also changes regarding these laws, too.

It would be interesting and illuminating to learn why each of these various laws were struck down; who agitated against keeping these laws, to what end, who deemed them unfair, and why, etc.

Philosophies of a Disenchanted Scholar

It is easy to say the modern legal system is unfair, unjust and the various issues with it are causing the social breakdown we know too well. Here are some of the laws which kept the sexes in line, and marriage thereafter. Their loss has caused recognisable problems.

To avoid players or lying cads promising marriage to good women

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breach_of_promise

To prevent gossip by competition, especially where truthful

To prevent bitter rivals (possibly male) or spinsters dissolving a union once made

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alienation_of_affections

To promote emotional intimacy and the ‘dependency paradox’ vital for a permanent relationship

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expectation_of_privacy

The spouse should become the centre but not the whole Universe. Family business and home matters don’t leak to outsiders who twist the knife while things are down (natural ups and downs) and never let a good time go without passive-aggression.

    And then there was the repeal of coverture(Which upholds the Authority of the husband over the wife) in 19th century due to pressure from trad-fems.

    Let’s also not leave out that the femihags and socons have kept pushing the AOC laws higher; making it impossible for younger women to find husbands but easy prey for illicit sex.

    well according to this
    men ranking under their wives
    aka counter to the bible where it says
    wives need to rank under their husbands
    is how to build marriages

    it also says men need to plan their life around their wife and kids
    really?
    I thought men planned their life and the wife was mean’t to support him
    NOT the other way around…

    christians have pandered to feminists
    and it makes me angry…
    is that wrong?

    Your anger isn’t wrong.

    We call such self-identified ‘Christians’ who have imbibed feminist doctrines ‘churchians’, because they are NOT behaving as Christians ought; we draw a distinction between ‘churches’ teaching such hogwash, and those that do not hold to such.

    As you can see, we do not buy into that crap. And we are Christians.

      it is just confusing
      why do men want do do this?
      Do they hate men?
      why are men not allowed to do things they enjoy, only women?
      why are men not allowed to lead and plan their own lives, since when did men have to submit to a woman’s goals and ambitions?

      it seems like most christians are like his kind
      not like you or me

    The men who take this kind of attitude do in fact hate other men.

    We’ve always had them amongst us; they’re those among the elite who got there by stepping on others’ backs. IOW, most of them.

    And now, they’ll sell out their fellow men to earn brownie points with women, whether to make money off them, or just to bask in the glow of self-righteousness, or whatever.

    It probably is the case that most Western self-proclaimed Christians today are like this, and those of us who are like our forefathers are an extremely small minority, very much on the fringe.

      most of the men at my church are like that
      they may work
      but at home they are the one’s who look after the baby and do the homemaking

      they hardly ever sit in church as they look after the kid

      they never meet their friends, even though the wife gets to

      the wife, even if the baby is with her always makes the guy change the diapers
      guy feed him
      guy get up at night even though he works the next day ( actually most christian moms make their husbands do all the night work, even though he has to work and she can catch up on sleep)

      also when the man comes home he has to do more homemaking

      they call it servant leadership

      I just see an unloving wife, and men who feel guilty for not being domestic and feminine enough

      for most of human history men never cared about domestic duties
      now it is their responsibility?!!

      and on facebook all the women praise their husbands for being servants

      never being a leader, provider and protector
      the men also do not believe that provision is a form of service

      also the men are taught that their lives must be fit around their wives

      expecting their wife to support them and look after the home or make him feel comfortable after he worked all day for her
      is sinful

      the women claim they submit
      but they actually control the relationship through the servant leader clause

      even when they have guests over
      the man does all the cooking while holding the baby…

    Crazy.

    I’d find another church, if I were you, if you can find one a bit more traditionalist not too far away from you.
