State sponsored marriage is a mantrap

Over at Vox Day's blog, he often writes about the pitfalls of marriage (for non-Christians) that come as a result of the legal power granted to women over men by the State. Below, you'll find a quote from a woman's' discussion forum that should make you throw up in your mouth a little bit:

My second husband and I were pregnant and happy. He has 3 children from a prior marriage, and all seemed peaceful. His ex wife, upon learning he was having a child with me engaged an attorney and upped the child support to the point where half of his income after taxes is being paid to her.

Now, instead of being able to stay home with my new daughter, I will have to go to work to support her. And if it ever goes bad in my marriage, I will receive very little support.... This is what I am thinking. Maybe just cash out now, sell the house at some point, and let him pay until the inheritance hits. In the meantime, I can remarry, after a little "playtime". I do feel like he promised me happiness and now it is all just sadness and I have to work."

For the non-Christian young men out there, DO NOT get married. In the spirit of Monty Python: Run Away! Run Away! Run Away! This country, and many women and legislatures in it only see you as a wage earner, a means to an end. Existing solely to fulfill the desires of the woman. You marry the wrong girl, and you will pay your entire natural life. At any given time she can cast you into debtors prison swallow the key, take your children, retirement, house, move on to the next hapless loser, while your left wondering what you did to deserve this.

This really made me laugh!
When are these poor "liberated" women gonna get it?
It's such a shame that when that man "promised her happiness", she mistook that for money. But then again, that seems to be the trend among young women today now doesn't it? If he has money and plans to let you blow it all, then by all means, marry him NOW! If he's broke though, you better run away screaming.
I have to say that I am so happy to be a wife and mother. I am glad to submit to my husband, and I like that he is the head of our home and I am the heart. It's a blessing that our home is based upon the love and salvation of Jesus Christ. When we had nothing, after losing it all, I felt very close to my husband. I was very happy even still, and not in a million years would have thought about "cashing out". He promised me lots of things on our vows, as did I. All of those things promised were "in good times and bad, in sickness and in health, and FOR RICHER OR POORER".
These kinds of women are such an embarassment to themselves. I know first hand. I feel so sad that this poor women has no idea of what true love or happiness really is. I remember what that is like. She will never be able to pass it on the her child, and will most certainly not be capable of making any man truly happy.
I am so thankful that God has now set me apart and shown me the light. He has given me a new heart, one that wants to serve my family. One that wants to please and love my family. One that is proud to be a wife who will stand by her husband in ANY situatiuon that life will bring. Only the love of Christ can do that though, and I am blessed to have recived it. It's not so long ago that I was once like(almost)this woman. It just shames me to know what kind of person I was.
The feminist movement will come full circle soon enough, and I'm so glad that I have not been "liberated" and wont have to suffer that same way that these other women will.

yeah, you can usually spot em though. I mean it's not like they stand out with their highlights, fake boobs, fake tans, and Prada bags(not fake).

they're screaming high maintenance at the top of their lungs and if you go anywhere near em it's your own damn fault.

All we can do is pray for these kinds of women. Paul,not all of them come with the fake boobs, hair, teeth, etc. A good portion of them are average women, who unfortunately have learned to work the system. It is very sad. All we can do is submit to the Lord and trust Him in all things, especially the area of marriage.

Prayer isn't the only thing we can do. How about removing the unreasonable amount of power women have over men through an unjust, unbalanced, and fraudulent "divorce courts."

Note the marriage emphasis of my post is “non-Christian” marriages (specifically men). If they served our Lord genuinely, then I believe it's safe to assume this garbage would not be taking place. I believe this on scriptural grounds first and most importantly; secondly, my wife and I experienced this together. The beginning of our marriage was joined by service to ourselves in unbelief and now our marriage is joined in service to God (and thus each other) in Christ.

[Were] Servants of Ourselves = Hatred and Resentment

[Now] Servants of Christ = Peace and Love

I agree .357 . In a Christian Marriage, if they are truly following Christ would not be having these difficulties. The secular marriage/ world is truly at the mercy of the system unless radical changes take place.

I had a friend several years ago, non-Christian, was not married. He fathered a child during a mutual one night stand, but was still taken for everything he had. On top of that, the courts awarded custody to the female. He never saw the child nor has any contact with the child. He now is with another female and they had 2 children together last time I heard anything about it. He is working under the table so he can provide for his family and avoid payment for the other child. It was one of those scenarios that he made decent money, the girls family knew that and used their influence to win the court case. Now he no longer has that affluent job. I can't say I agree with everything he did, but I don't blame him. Pay for a child he is never allowed to see? There is alot of unfair policies delegated through the courts now.

I am so glad I am a Christian now. My perspective on relationships is completely different than when I did not follow the Lord.
