I'm a particle physicist. Rabbi is a cop who studied physics.

I am a physicist who did his graduate work in math. I didnt give up anything to be anything. I have several patents in the aerospace field and I have worked as a venture capitalist, starting and investing in business, most of my adult life. Among many other things I do work part time as a street cop. I also know a number of people here in real life and they know my story. You are late to this party, and that is OK, there is no expectation that you would know such things but it doest make sense for you to use that as a point when you have no clue. Devildog is also a (much better educated that I), physicist who is very well vetted for his graduate work on the LHC at CERN which earned him his PhD from a very prestigious school.

Listen, I am going to try another approach because you are not getting it. No picking or being a prick...just listen because you have missed it. It isnt everyone else, it is you.

Devildog brought up rape. Real rape. He brought it up as hyperbole in the form of a parable.

You used that as a segway to go off on a tangent about womens rape fantasies.

The two are unrelated. You have not been called out because of any flaw in your point(that is another topic). You have been called out because making your point in this thread makes no sense. I.E. "your point is stupid...."


You have not been able to understand this. No one changed or backtracked. Your thoughts and *facts* are not being challenged.

Go back and read it. You did not only fail to understand everyone elses point....but everytime it was explained to you, you started fighting the wrong fight.

You have a chance here to hit the reset button and see where you went off the tracks. Please do so.

Kurly, you got owned by both Rabbi and Devil Dog and somehow are too thick to even recognize it. And by the way, they are right.

And for your information, I am a 52 year old woman that has enjoyed a very healthy sex life and never once have I ever entertained a rape fantasy nor do I know any other woman who has openly admitted to having one. My girlfriends and I talk very openly talk about sexual matters and I can tell you everyone of them would have the same repulsive reaction that I have. No self-respecting woman wants to be taken against her will.

And yes, you DID indicate that most women fantazied about being raped and then later tried to back pedal and qualify your statement. If you honestly believe this, you have a terribly distorted view of woman. The things you have said in this thread disgust me.

I suspect his 60-80 hours/week for 25years did his marriage no good.

Yeah right, and just when that's all about to be over she decides she's had enough. Sometimes timing is very telling.

Bitterness is a difficult pill to swallow. True, her timing was poor, but I stand by my comment that years of consecutive 60-80 work weeks benefit only your toy collection. I'll wager they had a boat, nice cars, big house, etc. but no family time. I'll also come right out and state that married folks should think twice or even three times before entering LE or the military UNLESS there is agreement and a very high level of maturity and understanding of the job requirements.

You either love someone and want to be with them or you dont.

If you pull the "you are never here...." or any variation of that in order to leave, then you are making it about you. Of course there are details to that and it does cause stress....but everything stresses a relationship. You either stay together or you dont.

That is actually a damned funny piece. The problem with trying to apply it too me is, I have chronicled a long slew of my flailures, struggles and things I suck at in spite of the things I have done well.

It depends heavily on the divorce laws state by state, as far as I know. When I got divorced my ex wife was unemployed, and I didn't have to pay any alimony.

No, there is going to be a % of couples who earn a similar amount to chip away at that 70%

And the obvious one, not all places have alimony and even in the places that do have it, you may not qualify for various reasons, even if your spouse makes more money.

Friends of mine have had to deal with situation like that. Their old ladies would swear up and down that they would leave if they had the money. The dynamic at play here is a married woman has control over 8 paychecks a month. A single woman only 4.

Chicks don't like the thought of living off only their earnings. Heaven forbid, that one would have to go back to apartment living, giving up access to a home.

Women have a thing about not leaving a relationship without having another one locked down.

I've known too many dudes who were put in the extra hours so that their wives could be stay-at-home-moms. Their reward for the sacrifice was another man baby in their wife's belly.

Remember that above everything love is a behavior & not an emotion. What most people classify as love wears off in four years as Evolution intended in order to propagate the species. Anthropologists speculate that most relationships end at four years as endorphins wear off because when we were evolving it took approx. that period of time for a child to become bipedal in order to escape predators, hence we sought other partners to spread the genes. It's the four year "itch" and not seven.

As the ol' dance floor maxim goes "baby, if you don't feel I love you then feel a little lower!!"

The whole point of alimony should be if the wife has sacrificed her career, either by staying home and raising children (which should be a mutual decision on the part of both parents, not just hers, or his), or by moving every time her husband gets a transfer/promotion, that she shouldn't be left with nothing if he leaves her (or cheats on her or beats her and she leaves him). I'm good with that. I'm not good with awarding alimony in no-fault divorces, or in cases where she earns more money than he does, or in cases where she chooses to leave because she "feels unfulfilled" whatever the hell that means. Common sense needs to be applied to the concept.
