Save Marriage… By Making It Easier To Destroy Families

divorce-cakes-a_004_l

It is no surprise that due to various demographic effects the marriage rates in Asia are falling along with birth rates and these trends have some implications for the Asiasphere, especially if they are trying to overtake the West who is much further along the issue and struggling with several toxic strands of self-defeating ideologies.

This is yet another article in an increasing number on the issue. What’s surprising is how poorly the writer automatically assumes that saving marriage means sweetening the deal for women by tossing men under the bus.

Perhaps it’s notable that this article is from the Economist, which hails from the West where they have all but nuked their own concept of marriage by making it extremely easy for people to smash their vows and with it the the fundamental building block of civillisation- the family. I guess they can’t help but to spread the misery around.

Here’s the part of the article in question (emphasis mine):

“Governments cannot legislate away popular prejudices. They can, though, encourage change. Relaxing divorce laws might, paradoxically, boost marriage. Women who now steer clear of wedlock might be more willing to tie the knot if they know it can be untied—not just because they can get out of the marriage if it doesn’t work, but also because their freedom to leave might keep their husbands on their toes. Family law should give divorced women a more generous share of the couple’s assets.

TL;DR: Writer thinks giving women more power and freedom to destroy their marriages and take their ex-husbands to the cleaners will boost marriage.

Here’s a picture of an idea of similar quality:

Lul wut. What a good deal for men, everybody must be clamouring to sign up.

It reaches a point where you are not sure if the people who write such articles are trolling or serious, or if they have more than two brain cells to rub together. Does the writer of this article seriously think men are stupid to go for such a deal? Does the writer seriously think more men will marry under these kinds of hostile conditions? I am going to hazard a guess the writer has been drinking a little too much feminist kool-aid.

The effects of divorce on children and the mental health of men ground under the system of family court every since frivorce became a thing is pretty clear for all to see. The bad effects of children growing up in single parent arrangements is pretty well documented, and one of the leading causes of single parenthood is divorce. The negative effects of building a whole demographic of unmotivated men who rather go deadbeat than keep getting milked by the system are well felt in places where divorce has gone full retard.

What I do find amazing is that I do know some people who run on this logic train of thinking making divorce easier is good for marriage, it’s as if they don’t even realise that men are rational creatures, and will respond accordingly. It’s as if they don’t even realise that men also make up the other half of the equation.

The article does get one thing right- and that is Asians do think that the superiority of Asian family life is one of the key advantages over the West and that’s true, all the more now than ever.

The last thing we really need is to import Western practices on marriage here to nuke our own families. It is one of the areas where Western civillisation has really dropped the ball, and the Asiasphere would do wise not to follow suit. Most certainly not here in Singapore.
