how come women initiate the breakup 80% of the time? Page 36 of 54    (14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54)

Have you ever tried breaking up with a woman? Talk about can't take rejection well. I was a facebook myspace a-hole for months and still to this day I still am. The repercussions for actions such as breaking up with a woman are far too high. We are cowards with good reason. If it causes alot of unnecessary BS its not cowardly it's common sense to make yourself out to be an ill suitor. To purposely demolish the relationship.


Stop dating weak women. I've been through far worse and painful things than a breakup. I guess I'm the only principled woman left on the planet. Please.

You said: But this begs the question: implicit in the fact women do the breaking up,
is the idea that it is the women who dislike committment, not men (every divorce I
have ever seen it is not the man who wants to break up, it is the woman)

I say: When I found out my husband of 5 years was on speed and sleeping with my "Maid of Honor", you bet your ASS I filed a divorce. you are one sided and like the look of your own typing. Bet you like the sound of your own voice too. Because you are the only one listining to you. I think you have issues with getting a friend, let alone a date, and now we can all see why.

5) Because the man doesn't want to handle the guilt or potential repercussions of being known as the 'one who broke up the relationship' and therefore causes the woman to break up with him by manipulating her/circumstances

(...another possibility...)

Stronger after they marry and are entitled to 50% of his assets!!!!
Yet when a man breaks up with a woman before marriage, he is a player?

Bottom line is they bail 80% of the time because of the money!!!


Wow .... good think not all men on this planet think like this.

Yes - cause all us poor helpless, stupid women have no ability to make our own money. It couldn't possibly be they're irritated from years of all the thoughtless, stupid crap that men do and say.

Sure - I've broken up with all of my boyfriends because I wanted their set of mismatched garage sale dishes.

Depends on how long he's been sampling her goodies or how many women he goes through per month. Either that or he's a coward.

Not at all possible! Heck, if I wanted to have more money I WOULD be with someone. Instead, here I am single for god knows how long....., and thinking I should remain so, so that I don't get accused of using a man for his precious money that he'll spend all on himself for the rest of his life. Shrug.

This is just the type of response that I expected.
Funny how in the European countries that don't divide the assets 50/50 the divorce rate is lower. The ratio between which gender files first is much closer to even. Hummmmm I guess that means nothing though.
As it is always the males that cause the females to file first here in the good ole USA.

As far as the idea of staying single I agree wholeheartedly!!! The only way I would marry again is to have a ironclad pre-nup. That will protect my assets and hers. A pre-nup should be standard for every marriage.

No you don't get it, the female gets sick of being ignored and treated like crap because the guy is in the relationship, so he sits back and does nothing special anymore, so she leaves it has nothing to do with the physical.

Well, I guess 80% is O.K.....but could that be improved to 100%? I normally spend out all my energy neglecting women and there is little left for the break up effort.

^^^lol!! i haven't quite reached 100% yet.... but i'm sneaking up on 98%.

i'll answer the question with a question. how come men are willing to tolerate insufferable relationships 80% of the time?

^^^that's easy. But men won't admit it.

The things that men put up with for sex is pretty funny. The same could be said for some women who want money.

It would be so easy for many women to snare some unsuspecting man into paying her way. That's what some men don't seem to get. I could easily be sitting here having some man pay for my debt just for regular sex.

I doubt this is true. There are plenty of people from both genders who will stay in bad or mediocre relationships due to having low self esteem, fear of being alone, the kids, the other person being attractive or rich etc.

"how come women initiate the breakup 80% of the time?"
-----------
Ever since women got as many rights as they have today - which they abuse of course. Two decisive factors immediately come to mind - sex and money.

I agree. Less work for me = win. She can make all the important decisions like when it's time to breakup and I can continue to pretend we ever had a chance to begin with.

Because a woman getting a man is like a man taking a breath of air. And it doesn't work the other way around. Not that hard to figure. If she's always out for the better deal, good f*cking riddence...

As part of the proud hypothetical 20% I would say my reasoning was close to that of reason 3 but not quite. My ex threatened to file more than a few times, usually to get some kind of concession and I went for it. I would push back but didn't really fight much. When I hit my end point and told her I was filing divorce, I wasn't looking for a concession. I was looking for divorce. The warning signs were there but she didn't see them. Even now as i point them out she doesn't see them. In this case I can't be responsible for her lack of sight here.

Happy:

Do you live in the same world this idiots do, having women around them only wanting a wallet? I'm out working two jobs, obviously I don't need anyone to pay my way, I'm paying my own. Most women that I know work.

VERY VERY correct. They know there are a glut of lonesome horny schmoes out there at their mercy. Beggars can't be choosers but queens can choose at their will..and flitting fancy. It's like 'oh this guy isn't working out precisely as my heart desires...NEXT!' They do it cause they CAN. That's all men really need to understand about it.

Funny how, In Europe, counseling is mandated. Just depends on how one chooses to look at it, doesn't it?

Also it takes 3 years to get a divorce in Italy with mandatory counseling (according to my friends in Tuscany) so if you want to break up a marriage, you really need to be determined because the Catholic church thinks every marriage is sacred, just like sperm...

Maybe you should have read the whole law on that if both agree on a way to split the assets it only takes 30 days.
However if someone is trying to get more than the other wants to give then 3-7 years is what it takes.
Kinda gives a incentive to agree.

Also I know for a fact in GA and many other states there is mandatory counseling so that point is moot!!!
