SO screech the headlines of The Telegraph.com.
“A MAN whose girlfriend refused to terminate her pregnancy unless they got married has been granted a divorce – because he was “under duress” when he agreed to wed”
I thought these days you could get a divorce when you didn’t want to live with someone anymore. Surely anyone can get a divorce? Especially the very people who invented marriage, to benefit themselves, i.e men.
I realise that some countries do not permit women to divorce (knowing that most women are miserable in marriage, and that men wouldn’t be able to persuade them to stay if a real choice was available). Other countries, such as the U.K make it difficult for women to leave their spouses by removing funding from battered women shelters and forcing them to go through mediation.. but again, this has nothing to do with men and divorce. (70% of divorces are initiated by women)
But according to this rag, we are supposed to believe that men are trapped in marriage and can only get out in exceptional circumstances and with a valid excuse at that. LUckily for this guy, he had one. Phew.
“The Family Court heard the man had told his girlfriend last year he wanted to break up because “he did not want a serious relationship” – only to discover she was pregnant.
He said his girlfriend had terminated pregnancies before as neither wanted to have a baby. But this time she told him: “I’m possibly not going to terminate the pregnancy unless you marry me.”
Somebody tell these men to stop sticking their dicks into women if they don’t want to make babies. Fecking idiots. What kind of man relies on abortion for contraception?
And can someone please tell the rest of them to stop sticking their dicks into women who don’t want to bear their child.
What the newspaper is trying to do, of course, is to “prove” how powerful women are.. “Why do you need political and economic parity with men, when you get to decide whether a child lives or not?!?!???!” Women are so selfish.
Perhaps what really happened was that this guy refused to marry the woman unless she had an abortion?
Stranger things have happened. It’s not as though men aren’t obsessed with controlling women’s fertility is it. Whilst refusing to take any responsiblity for their own.
So yes, men, here’s a guide to the Rules of Life:
Don’t make babies you don’t want (it’s fairly simple)
Don’t impregnate women who don’t want to bear your child.
Stick to these simple rules and I guarantee you will never have to suffer TEH PAIN of a woman not obeying your wishes when it comes to termination.
