A Girl without a clue inWell, lets put it in this light, would you prefer a wife that is submissive to your commands or a wife that could careless what you want, after all she has women’s rights….not making the wife the doormat of the house, the bible says if you are not just as loving and respectful of your wife your prayers are meaningless till you fix the strife between you. Point is this, divorce hurts! No, I have never been through it, nor will I ever…and yes even in my mid teens I know I will not. I am being raised in a very strong and conservative family, I will go through courtship, and I will marry who the Lord has for me to marry. And in marrying who the Lord has chosen for me, someone with my same values and beliefs, our marriage will be Forever. You all say I have no idea what I’m talking about, but I have been through the pain of others. Tonight, right now, my dad is counseling a very young couple trying to do what the Lord wants, but their marriage is struggling, he wants her to work and she wants to stay home and raise a family. He make plenty of money and they do not need two incomes, but he still feels she should be in the work place. Hey, and if you all agree that divorce hurts deeply, then why not re- arrange your thinking a little bit? No one has to take anyone’s point of view!! But the way I see it, my parents have been married 17 years, my grandparents 50. And how I see it, if believing the way they do, makes them the way they are….maybe it is worth looking into?…..And if you do not agree with me, how do you feel the best way to make marriage stronger and bring divorce rates down is?? The worlds ideas are not working! You say I have no idea about what I’m talking about….is what I’m saying wrong? Honestly, and in all respect, I think I know what I’m talking about. I am in my bible daily, searching for the answers the Lord knew we would need. Let me lay this out flat also, if you are not a believer you are probably going to careless what I say, in fact what I say does not even apply to you, because until you accept Christ as your Lord and savior, you flesh only allows you to want to do good to a point. When you accept Christ, old things are passed away, and you are a completely new person through him. Yes, Christians get divorces too, but are churches instructing them not to? Churches have become even more shallow over the past ten years. People go to church to feel good about themselves, not to be convicted. The pastor does not want to offend anyone! (Whole other subject in its self!) But they feel the pain too! And if really no one like divorce, then why should we not try to find the cause of the increase in divorces and try to undo what Satan is trying to do. The devil knows the power of a strong family in Christ……don’t want to sound preachy (may be to late, but this is one area I am really convicted in) This guy has gone through a lot, and please listen sir, I do not in anyway wish to make you or anyone who has gone through a divorce feel worse! I feel for you, I really do. So don’t you think we should try our best to prevent any more divorces? Give a internet forum is not going to do much…..but you take what you can get. If you disagree with what I say, please tell me on what and why. Though what you say will most likely never change my opinion of marriage. (unless you are a very strong Christian with a solid back ground and core beliefs and truly seeking the Lords will) All for the best, Princess Bubblegum:)P.S. And my full name is A girl without a clue in gaming! And that is because gaming is a side thing to me next to my Christian walk, school, public speaking, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, computers (building not gaming), and learning to be a keeper of the home……so I am not in anyway clueless, and wasn’t that kind of backboneless? You knocked my opinions and beliefs, but that’s all you did! Why do you think I’m wrong??
Would you like some rose petals with your sugar-coated view of life? Someone's in for a shock in her mid-twenties.
For a start, Divorce isn't the work of Satan. Otherwise there would be pentagrams on the divorce papers.
Divorce is a necessary part of human life. You may not like divorce, but the fact of the matter is that divorce happens. I'm deeply sorry to Dysfunctional, but it's true. The divorce was also not his fault, but it happened. (By the way, remember: No matter how bleak things may seem at any given moment, it WILL get better). No amount of preaching at us will stop the fact that divorce is here to stay.
Edit: Also, the return key is your friend, and unreadable formatting is neither big nor clever.

Times like this I remember why I don't trust America as a super power. I'm sure if there is superior alien race monitoring us somewhere out there, and that they are currently reading posts from this girl - they are wetting themselves with laughter. Seriously girl, listen to yourself - Just step back, think about the process of life, breathing, the dimensions, distance between earth and the sun, the way mammals brains work, how predators hunt, the structure of the food chain and why it is like that, how we've made your car to go along Then read your post again and try and take your beliefs and posts seriously. Beef as much as I love the way you put your posts sometimes lay off the age abit, I've heard nonsense come from 50 year olds and wisdom from 14 year olds. Dysfunctional, if your car shopping that's probably a great opportunity (suprised beef didn't point this out) buy a muscle car and find some big open roads, letting go abit to make room for some fun and such will probably help take your mind off things. Hope you can look back on this and shrug your shoulders or chuckle soon as possible.

yes, but i wouldnt say it is necessary, but it is the reality of life. not to take a shot at clueless or anything but you mentioned windsurfing, kyaking, and sailing. youll find reality when you get out of school and move away and theres no one to pay for your toys maybe it is cause of a slight decline of practicing religous people (of any faith) but i think it in part because people are getting married sooner and dont wait long enough to realy know each other. i know a few girls in my school who are already married, i would say they dont have long, if it last its because they are both from poorer familes and dont have the money to divorce i would bet
divorce costs money?

Lawyers are not free ;)
Divorce happens becuase two people don't want to be attached to each other anymore, for whatever reason it's their right to get married and their right to get divorced. Speaking personally my mother and father got divorced shortly after I was born, so I've never met or spoken to my father. And I'm thankful it happened when I was very young rather than when I was older as it would have alot more effect on me.

Everything costs money nowadays :lol:

No offence, but do you have any basis for knowing this to be true?
a divorce can cost over $50,000. and depending on how much crap the wife takes from you she might just take all of your money and make you pay for the divorce
why is it the wife who gets to take all of the money?
