Many women are confused and frustrated about men and dating….and they don’t know why. Here is my take on this malaise: At one time, men were the hunters and women were the gatherers. On an intuitive level, this essence is still alive today. However, since the advent of the sixties sexual revolution, American cultural standards have shifted. Crimes and Misdemeanors consists of two connecting stories. The first is that of Judah (Martin Landau), a wealthy, highly respected ophthalmologist whose mistress, Dolores, wants him to leave his wife. Dolores tells Judah that if he doesn’t, she will tell his wife about their affair and also about some of Judah’s shady business dealings. Not wanting to leave his wife and incapable of convincing Dolores not to talk, Judah turns to his mobster brother who has Dolores killed. Overcome with grief, Judah contemplates his life, god, and the meaning of right and wrong.
Marriage is not some golden solution; I know as many miserable married couples as unmarried. They simply didn’t know what else they could do and succumbed to the pressures of what was presented to them as honourable, respectable, dutiful, and obligatory. This is not love or virtue; we do not create a better world by forcing people into commitments through guilt and judgement.
Also, from what I understand this rule goes completely against what the Theology of the Body teaches. I have not formally studied it, so I can’t say anything specific, but I do know that the Theology of the Body teaches that couples must gradually get to know each other more and more physically. Being restricted to pre-teen-stage physical contact such as quick kisses and hugs, without any progression from there, does not allow for a gradually more physical relationship.
I dont know how different my story is, but here you go. I hate the word confussed as we should. Never be. I have been with my b.f for over 9yrs with 3children. We were not going to church inly unto about this year, our lord called us. We have been threw so much you name it.
If you’ve been married to your man for many years, you know that getting to the altar was the easy part. It’s staying together for the long haul that is the challenge. Few of us would consider it a success to simply co-partner with a mate in a basic, tribal sense, nesting and raising young together. We humans crave and need passionate, emotional connection in a long-term union. If that feeling of connectedness weakens, loneliness can set in, and our commitment to each other will weaken in response.
If they just took the time to look at holistic views of spirituality they will find that the Hindus and others had whole races of primitive men (monkey like) and serious historical and astronomy dates going back millions of years. Indigenous religions abound with myths regarding aliens.
