    Introduction

    Hello all. I guess this is my introduction.

    All there really is to know about me, is that I'm married 4 years, have 3 children, and am in hell.

    I got married right after college, and had no job for 6 months...and my wife liked it(?) we did everything together. In all honesty, aside from stressing about money, the honeymoon phase was awesome. I was a total Nice Guy. A doormat. Looking back, I see it was my naivety that made it nice. We found out we were expecting our first and I was ecstatic, but panicked about not having a job. I signed up for the Army Reserve, and was gone for 7 months. As you can imagine, you can't be a Doormat in the Army. I learned that it took initative to get things done. It took me a while to apply that to other areas of my life. After my second son was born we moved to SD so that I could take a crack at being a minister. That's where hell really started. She was on board with all of these plans, but as soon as we arrived she started complaining about everything. A local pastor brought us a ton of baby food for my second, and she said no thanks, we make our own... And I tried to make that sound rational to him. I was naive. I did everything I could to make her life comfortable there because she had left her family to go there with me, but nothing satiated her. She complained constantly. She would text me while I was working to complain. After a year of that constant complaining, I gave up my dreams of being a pastor so that we could move back home. I thought this would save our marriage. Guess what? She is still complaining. And now I can't stand her because she crushed the only thing I ever wanted to do with myself for the last 8 years. I've decided that I'm not letting that happen ever again. She works against her own interests when she complains about the jobs I have. I have to work, and I can't cater to her every whim. I have my boys to think about now. They are the only reason we are still married. If we get divorced, I am fine with it. I can still make sure the boys are taken care of. I heard about this site browsing around for info about being a more assertive man, and not letting women dictate how I do things. This is the short version.

    Re: Introduction

    Welcome...

    There's a ton of wisdom to be found here pertaining to your situation...I'd start with the "Anctedotes" and other "Intros"...

    You may have dodged a bullet with the pastor thing. To me it seems most churches worship pussy more than God anymore...

    You won't be getting shamed here, that's for sure...

    I personally see The Red Pill as a divine enlightening or "Forbidden Truth"...It just explains so much and makes a lot of sense to me...

    I've found quite a few Red Pills in the Bible, as well. The truth has been there all along...

    Thanks man,

    It's nice to actually hear someone say 'you won't be shamed' as that is pretty much all I've felt lately. I'd actually come to the same conclusion about being a minister. It's not for me. Subliminally, my focus has shifted toward philosophy and literature, and it took that experience for me to realize it. There are many 'red pills' in the bible. The culture had a wholly different perspective on the roles of men and women. I would argue a much healthier perspective in some ways. Men were not expected to do all the emotional bs we are told we need to do. People didn't marry for love, they did it because they needed each other to survive. To unite different clans through covenant, produce heirs etc. there's no real equivalent in our culture. We've been building this industrial society as we go, and the death of physical communities, and consequentially marriage is a byproduct, but I'm not cynical...

    Welcome.

    That's the problem with being married, women know they can wear you down eventually so they just either nag or complain, again and again and again. It's a female strategy. And you have nowhere to go because she's always there.

    It's hard to hold frame against such an onslaught.

    We try not to be too serious here, except when we're serious. So have a beer, and the 'rant' section is always there if you need it.

    Good start, Strange; I think you'll find a number of like minds who are in a very similar situation to you.

    The intro could use a follow-up. See:
