Today, about 56% of college students are women. This might sound like it is almost 50:50, but actually 56:44 means that there are 27.3% more women than men. In 2018, 36% of women born in 1980-1984 had earned a bachelor’s degree, compared to 28% of men. Not surprisingly, men are losing interest in institutions thatContinue reading “College Debt”

Women in College
If I propose that women focus on marriage and family first, and basically skip any college education, does that mean that women should be uneducated? Not at all: young women, whose ambitions went beyond a public high-school education, would be educated at their father’s house. Actually, not much education is happening in universities these daysContinue reading “Women in College”
Today, we have a conflict for women between “career” and “family.” We have already determined that the natural time for a woman to have a family is when she is young and at the peak of her fertility. A woman that marries at age 18 might have a full set of children by age 25.Continue reading “Women’s Careers”
Wives and Mothers
Since we are discussing wives and mothers, we should address the question of whether women should become wives and mothers at all, especially since it seems we are telling young women something like the opposite of this these days. We have a couple options here: Spinster/Corporate Workerbee: not a wife and not a mother.Working SingleContinue reading “Wives and Mothers”
Let us form some basic assertions, and see what leads from them. A woman should bear children during her peak childbearing years; this is basically 18-32. A woman should be married before getting pregnant. A woman should not have sex before getting married. This is difficult, since a woman naturally has a high sex/coupling driveContinue reading “Basic Assertions”
The “Purity” Movement
Beginning in the 1990s, inspired by books such as I Kissed Dating Goodbye (2003) by Joshua Harris, there emerged among small Christian groups a “purity movement,” which basically attempted to revive Christian courtship as it existed before 1900. This, apparently, did not go so well. All too often, girls remained “pure,” that is: unmarried. ThisContinue reading “The “Purity” Movement”
One of the things you find, is that the pattern of courtship has held in pretty much all major civilizations for the last two thousand years. It has been true of the Christian Era, but it was also true (I believe) of Rome in its prime, and Greece. It is true in Islamic countries (manyContinue reading “Courtship Everywhere”
I said that this would be a blog about solutions, not analysis, which you can get in great abundance elsewhere. Having considered all the analysis for some time, I have come to some conclusions; or, solutions. Basically, I find that the solution, or at least my solution, is: courtship. By “courtship” I do not meanContinue reading “Courtship Today”
The Problem(s) Of Working Girls
Many have noted that men are not particularly enthused by a working girl’s accomplishments. Women call this “being intimidated.” Men usually insist this is not the case. It rarely goes much further than this. So, let’s go further. She Isn’t Going To Like You. Every man knows, consciously or intuitively, that women are “hypergamous.” TheyContinue reading “The Problem(s) Of Working Girls”
Pretty things later.
Yes, I will clean things up around here at some point. But, I wanted to get going, and not wait around until everything was prettified.
