MSM Lists Reasons Women Get Divorced, But We Tell You The Real Reason
The MSM loves to come up with clever, psuedo-explanations for just about everything. It’s an industry that runs on pretty lies.
Low-paid, gynocentric propagandists recently compiled a nice and tidy, hamster-wheel inspired listing of why women divorce men, and published the results in Business Insider. TNMM decided to peruse the claims and come up with our own, Red Pill conclusions rather than trusting those who have turned deception into an art form to tell us why divorces happen.
Right away, we can glean bias in the article by merely scratching the surface. The first mistake the story makes is assuming “couples” get divorced, when the plain truth is women initiate or are directly responsible for three-quarters or more of divorces. The report about why “couples” get divorced (as if men have any say in the matter) was driven by research conducted by Psychology Today:
When it comes to studying divorce, social scientists have two options. They can observe different couples and try to figure out on their own what predicts the end of a marriage, or they can simply ask people why their marriage ended.
Enter Hamster Rationalizations to taint the results. Asking women why they got divorced isn’t scientific, as females can effortlessly come up with a pocket full of excuses to hide their ulterior motives. Further, henpecked, Blue Pill men often go along with what women say was the cause of divorce without sticking up for their own interests. In any case, here’s the study’s methodology:
Researchers either ask participants to choose from a list of potential reasons for divorce, or they ask participants to answer an open-ended question about why they divorced.
Here are the reasons listed by this non-scientific study of divorce, based on research from psychologist Scott M. Stanley:
- Infidelity: Predictably, this is blamed on men. The study highlighted this response: “He cheated on me … Then I met somebody else and did the same thing. And when he found out about it we both essentially agreed that it wasn’t worth trying to make it work anymore because it just hurt too bad.” Maybe he started cheating because she sucked in bed. (I just wrote an article discussing good sex vs. bad sex.) Maybe she could have used some pointers on how to be better in bed. (Women always enjoy giving men pointers on how we can do… everything… better. Why not return the favor?) Maybe she, like most women, turned into an ice cube when she didn’t get something she wanted (like $$$) out of him.
- Substance Abuse: Also, blamed on men. From the study: “I said ‘absolutely no more bars’ and as soon as I found out he was back in them, I asked for [a divorce].” Never is the idea that maybe a bitch who is hell on wheels drives a man to drink. In my Beta days, I had several Anglobitches that made me want to drown my problems with tequila.
- Lack of commitment: You guessed it. The man’s fault. Do you see a trend emerging from the gynocentric media? “It became insurmountable. It got to a point where it seemed like he was no longer really willing to work [on the relationship]. All of the stresses together and then what seemed to be to be an unwillingness to work through it any longer was the last straw for me.”
- Too much conflict and arguing: I’m sure the belligerant tone we’ve already seen from women who chimed in on this study has nothing to do with conflict. Hell, I can barely stand to be in the same room as two loud-mouthed, entitled Anglobitches clucking around like hens laying an egg. Moreover, lock me in a room with a woman who treats me like I’m her man slave, and there will be arguments.
- Growing apart: A female favorite. We’ll translate this hamster rationalization for you – Beta bucks guy isn’t thrilling her with the emotional ups and downs she grew accustomed to while riding Alphas on the cock carousel. So, cupcake feels herself growing apart. Never to women seem to grasp the fact Betas are boring because they have to be.
- Getting married too young: Actually, getting married young is how our grandparents managed to stay together 50+ years. What man wants to marry scratch and dent merchandise at age 35? But, here comes another neat rationalization spun off the hamster wheel: “The main reason [we divorced] was because of our age. I think that being 19 at the time we got married, it just didn’t take. I think that we didn’t take anything as seriously as we should have.”
- Financial problems: This excuse means wifey has pushed her Beta Bucks husband to the very edge of a financial cliff with her wasteful, spendthrift lifestyle. Now that she can no longer extract any value from him, Briffault’s Law kicks in and she doesn’t want anything to do with the used-up bastard. She pushes him into the chasm.
Of course, all of the above are divorce excuses that sound good on the surface, but any man who has been through the frivorce meat grinder knows any and all of these rationalizations really come down to money. Financial problems are the real cause of divorce. But how many? It’s hard to put a figure on the number that are caused by money because the conflating factors provide convenient cover storys. In any case, from CNBC:
Finances are the leading cause of stress in a relationship, according to a survey of people in a relationship or partnership released by SunTrust Bank. Some 35% of all respondents experiencing relationship stress said money was the primary cause of friction. Among respondents with relationship stress aged 44 to 54, 44% said money was the primary cause.
The numbers are likely much higher than one-third and one-half, since money is clandestinely connected to the other listed problems as we will later explain.
The New York Times confirms money fights and money problems accurately predict divorce rates. An important study helps us go beyond the divorce factors listed above:
A new study, by Jeffrey Dew at Utah State University, attempts to quantify that risk. His finding: Couples who reported disagreeing about finance once a week were over 30 percent more likely to get divorced than couples who reported disagreeing about finances a few times a month.
Professor Dew looked at responses from about 2,800 couples surveyed by the National Survey of Families and Households. In this survey, both husbands and wives were asked, separately, about how often they disagreed with their spouse over chores, in-laws, spending time together, sex and money. These same respondents were then contacted again several years later, and asked if they were still married.
Of all these common things couples fight about, money disputes were the best harbingers of divorce. For wives, disagreements over finances and sex were good predictors of divorce, but finance disputes were much stronger predictors. For husbands, financial disagreements were the only type of common disagreement that predicted whether they would get a divorce.
Here’s the takeaway from that study. No matter how many neat excuses women and their enablers in the media make up, the simple fact is women only see men as walking wallets. Women make up other excuses for divorce so they don’t come out “looking bad” when all is said and done. Face is very important to a predatory female – she doesn’t want to look like the savage solipsist she is.
Once a woman has extracted the valuable marrow from one man’s bones, just as any predator move she moves on to the next kill. In our species, that means a call to the frivorce lawyer. Indeed, family courts have ballooned into a $50 billion a year industry in Anglo America as lawyers have turned innate female behavior into big business.
Here’s how divorces ultimately come down to money. A woman who feels she can no longer get money out of her boyfriend or husband, or feels she can monkey branch to a more profitable man, will often cut off sex and become quarrelsome and emotionally detach herself from the relationship – leading to the aforementioned infidelity, substance abuse, lack of commitment, conflict and arguing, and growing apart problems. An otherwise loyal, well-behaved hubby is going to screw around, get drunk, not be committed, argue with, and grow apart from a mean ass woman. How neat for this woman that by turning into a frigid cunt, thereby estranging her husband she now has ready-made excuses to ditch him in a court of law. She’s saved face, and she’s conveniently attached the blame for the divorce to her ex – even though she spurred his bad behavior with her own. How’s that for female manipulation?
It all comes back to Briffault’s Law: The female, not the male, determines all the conditions of the animal family. Where the female can derive no benefit from association with the male, no such association takes place. Benefit = money and resources.
It hurts to know women don’t see you as a human being worthy of love and respect unless they feel you can bring some benefit to them in the form of financial or other types of resources. But, it’s far better to know the truth about women than to persist living inside the candy-coated cultural delusions that create the suffering of so many millions of well-intentioned men.
