What do the ladies think?

House > husband?

I’d rather have a house. I don’t want to remarry. I didn’t want to get married the first time.

Husbands are not necessary for survival; shelter is.

I could have guessed this answer from you.

A house would be nice though! :D

I’d rather have a dog than a husband. In my experience, they’re cuter and smell better.

My house has never once screamed at me or abused me.

Houses are often easier to dispose of. :skull:

If well maintained they go up in value.While a bad husband or wife is worthless.

I mostly don't get the concept of marriage. If I was still interested in dating and fell in love with someone, I'd be okay with living with them. Marriage is just not for me. If a relationship ends up being abusive, it's harder to get out of if you're married.

No, it's the words of experience. I like dogs.

That's true. I think your viewpoint is becoming increasingly popular and common.

I am a little biased as I have parents who have had a good marriage for over 30 years and I have benefited from them being together in that way.

There are downsides to a culture that makes it easy for people to give up on one another, though I suppose that could be viewed as a good thing/an upside also, for convenience as well as safety purposes.

Why do you call her Miss Feminist?

Somehow that sounds mildly derogatory.

What has TP ever done or said to make her seem "Miss Feministy"?
