*Umm … I think not. Holly Hill, a new author, is suggesting the best way to make a marriage last ain’t love, good sex, or finances. It’s sex with everyone. She says to wives, let your husbands cheat if you want the marriage to last.
“How much more of this ‘Wanna keep your man? Let him stray’ tripe are we supposed to swallow?” The part that rankles the most is that Hill considers monogamous men to be heroes. “There you have it: A man and a woman can take the same vow, but the guy who keeps it is a hero.” Even worse, Hill thinks women should cheat, too…but just to make their husbands jealous. “That’s right; bonking some other dude isn’t about getting your own ya-yas out, it’s just about making yourself more desirable to your main man. Excuse me, I have to go claw my face off now.”
I know this is the mentality the ladies on Basketball Wives have. That’s evident and perhaps in their lives it works. But for the average Tyrone and Tesha, that’s not going to work because Tyrone and Tesha ain’t got that big house to maker her feel like its worth it, the nanny to take the kids away for a great escape, or a fat diamond ring to stare at. Not to say these material things keep a woman happy, but somewhere along the way, those basketball wives figure that they’ll deal with infidelity only if they get what they want.
I know some crazy jealous women, and men out there who’d kill if they found out their spouse was cheating. I wouldn’t follow this woman’s advice 1. Because someone is going to get hurt, physically; 2. This redefinition of marriage in America is stripping the true value of love and union; 3. Can you image what this will do to the kids! Gee!
When did marriage become such a superficial arrangement? Make a marriage last by praying together, working together, loving one another, and growing together. What happened to the old school kind of love?
