THE FIGHT CONTINUES
Back when the Holy Mother Church protected
marriage by enforcement -- meaning you
couldn't leave the marriage, ever, until
death did you part -- couples were stuck
with each other for the remainder of their
time on Earth.
These days only 50% of all marriages
survive the divorce proceedings, and that
number is steadily changing toward the 10%
norm. Why? Because there's less and less
outside force holding them together, and
couples quickly discover that the biological
drives that attracted them don't last very
Competition for boy-toys and boy friends and
fast dates and momentary intimacy with
strangers is powerful enough to drive the
booty dances at singles bars into thriving
social networks, and the internet provides
outlets such as youtube and myspace where folks
can advertise their loneliness and sex drives
to their hearts' content.
The fact is that women used to be able to
count on their youthful looks to be the
"bait" that attracted men, and that they had
until their late teens or early 20s to make
their catch. From then on, it was smooth
These days, relationships last an average of
three weeks to three months,although couples
often stay together for as much as three to
five years by sheer momentum. Sometimes it's
the kids who hold relationships together,but
that's becoming less and less true as shared
custody becomes the standard.
What does all this mean?
It means that women are faced with youth in
every direction. Men don't have to worry about
staying young. Women are attracted to men
regardless of appearance -- it's about other
issues like wage-earning, automobiles,housing,
privilege and rank, social position, sensitivity,
humor and good dancing.
For men, it's about the booty, the boobs, the
face, the hair, the giggle and the wiggle.
What that boils down to is that women have
to keep the "bait" in shape.There are
countless ways to do so, offered day and
night on tv -- cosmetics,fashion, jewelry,
anti-wrinkle and anti-blotch ointments, and
especially those infernal booty, boob and
belly machines that slim, trim and firm up
the important parts, the things that really
matter to a man about relationships.
Does this stuff all work to keep
Of course not. Eventually the initial
attraction becomes boring, repetition of
the same old things work to disintegrate
the couple's first-night fever.
Sooner or later, the relationship busts up,
and both partners are back out on the carousel,
looking for new mates, different mates, better
mates...and they find someone exactly like
the last one, only different, and that
relationship takes them a few more weeks,
months or years into the future.
And then what?
It starts all over again, and that means
the makeup, fashions, slim and trim machines,
makeovers, spas, trainings and social
networking, but as this goes on, the couples
get older and older, less and less attractive,
less and less able to depend upon nature to
provide the good looks and slim, trim bodies
they had when they were first starting the
And what about beyond the breeding cycle?
There's still that need for the "perfect
partner", but now they're in their fifties
or sixties or seventies or eighties or
nineties. At 50, the slim trim machines
and some of the cosmetics still work.
Even into the 60s, there's a chance that a
nip and a tuck in plastic surgery will help,
but beyond that, there's nowhere to go.
And even with all that commercial help in
preserving youth, the fact is that the
gimmicks are only as good as the initial
attraction. You bait the hook,and catch
a fish, but the fish eventually jumps out
of the basket and goes back into the water
to mate again.
It's an endless dance, and the DJ keeps
yelling out, "change partners" and
there you are, at square one again and
again and again.
Gone are the days when you could use your
natural youthful looks to make the catch
and it stayed caught.
Is there a solution?
Yes, of course there is.
The solution is to realize that there is no
"right answer". People are built the way
they're built. Women want stability, and men
want variety. Women are from Venus, the
world of romance, and men are from Mars,
the world of conquest and war, and that's
built into the genetics, meaning it won't
change. There's no way to train humans to
be something other than human.
Is there a way to beat the system?
You bet there is.
You can learn to become independent of relationships.
