Just answer the question, how about when there is no children involved and women still take men to the cleaners? It common when it comes to divorce.

Is it? Anecdotes are not facts, and generally when both spouses work and there are no children it's much easier to divide marital assets evenly. If a women, in fact, does end up "taking a man to the cleaners" one has to wonder if it's because he did something, like cheating, that would warrant a large settlement.

However, during these 6 years I was able to see all the things that suck about being together for a long time, the lack of passion and excitement, a very slow sex life after 5 years (nothing like it was in the beginning), and at some point, being together was more like a convenience.
Go together?


My wife and I have been married over six years and it's only been getting better every single day.

Weird.

I'm sorry since I don't mean to deliberately offend anyone, but somehow methinks the ladies putting forth the view that men do not drastically suffer financially when a divorce occurs are somewhat shortsighted and/or overpartial to their respective gender

Go back to the message that talks about how women in general don't marry men who make less than them. I think its a page or two before this one, someone else wrote it. So men doing it too is way less than the other way around.

Yet, the law and society rewards women greatly as if the man, the one who brought the food/kept a roof/transportation/education/etc., is seen as if he did nothing. So the women is protected/favored by law for what she contributed to marriage while the man is not?

But the thing is, both people suffer financially in a divorce. It's not necessarily worse for men than it is for women. There's still this pervasive idea that when a divorce happens, the man has to give up half of "his stuff." No, they were married, and it was *their stuff*. She lost half of it, too.
