We all belong to the State. I don't belong to my husband any more than he belongs to me. We are partners, not properties.
I'm working for myself and for my husband, just as he works for himself and for me. Together we have a lovely big house with a large garden. Either of us couldn't have that on our own.
People marry "old spinsters" all the time. My paternal grandmother (a widow at that time) married in her 30's with a child. A former colleague's dad (a widower) married a woman about the same age, when he was around 50.
Many of the "dating" sites have lots and lots of fake women accounts, to lure in the men to spend a lot of money. I.e. there's a shortage of women, not the other way around. I have many times been asked on Facebook if I'm interested in meeting Lithuanian women. But no, though I have nothing against Lithuanians per se, I'm happily married to a man.
Quite a few of the women I know put off marriage till later in life. People over here usually live with their significant other for years and years and years, and only get married when they have a few kids together and start thinking about inheritance laws. Of course, the men have put off marriage just as long as the women have...
Divorce and trade up? Well, the Orange Clown has the Patent on that, doesn't he? He's a bit older than my dad is, and his current wive is a bit younger than I am. I find it a bit repulsive, yes.
Man couldn't handle it on his own, according to the Bible; he was provided with someone to care for him.
Shouldn't "Neither" be followed by a "nor"? Was the writer of One Corinthians deficient in English?
What about the writer of Two Corinthians; was he any better?
In the Lord, however, woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. For just as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman.
Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? Doesn’t nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering.
If the hair IS the covering she's given by God, why does she need another covering, made by humans? And if women aren't allowed to pray to God without covering her head, how come some Christians get apoplectic with rage at the sight of a woman wearing a hijab (or niqab, chador, burqa, etc)?
