    You cant depend on women for loyalty. They only want men for money. Once a man isnt able to provide money to a woman. The woman will leave her husband. So the only reason men keep women around is for the sex.

    read the new book ‘why women have better sex under socialism’ by kristin ghodsee

    My opinion is that there more commodities in a relationship than sex. Loyalty, partnership against difficult times, and trust worthiness. I'll take those above sex. Life is difficult, and people get older not younger. It's about what you bring to the table and is it of equal value to what I have to offer. If not, then shop for the discount store relationship. Because your not of sufficient quality.

    So Marc Rudov was right all along. Dating and marriage by and large is legal prostitution.

    Why are we assuming that marriage which is a savage and patriarchal is what women need. Why is this the automatic assumption? maybe having a smaller section of the community marrying could be a good thing for humanity. Why can't we stop and think about that?

    If the "marriage market" now favours men much more than women, wouldn't there be more divorces initiated by husbands?

    The problem with this video and the problem with women. Not the women who just want welfare. But those women who expect a man to take care of them. When a woman should be taking care of themselves. Or at least get the govt to do it. Instead of another male.

    Impressive work! Subbed!

    So i completely understand this video's point. But as the comments say, it's a little over simplified. The pill did displace marriage from sex, which makes sense. But i don't think males can get anymore excited about marriage if some things aren't corrected.

    I wish i could legitimately find a way to get males to trust me, bc i am honestly not the type to wanna ditch u in order to get welfare.
    I just want a fun, caring, responsible, christian guy. >0> sigh

    This is really brilliant. Bravo. I applaud your honesty.

    Like you guys need to call Geoffrey Miller, OK?

    individual women can still get a good man by charging more. You guys have half the argument. It could be ironclad. There is always cheap sex. Men never commit to it. This video is so good and so bad at the same time.

  • Reply Chuck Steinmann December 6, 2018 at 4:07 pm

    You guys are missing the evolutionary argument. Its cut and dry and simple. All of this is explainable. Men don't have a higher drive. Get better axioms. The rest is good.

    This is a very very limited video

    Marriage is not all about sex. Men and women both enjoy sex. Sex is the bonus that helps keep people together. Sex is what cements the relationship and bonds those people together emotionally.
    Marriage is an agreement between two people to join together. Work together to raise children and be a family unit.
    Marriage fails because one or both do not uphold their part of the bargain. And being that women overwhelmingly are the ones who file divorce, nag their husbands to death, go around sleeping with other guys while denying their husband and generally can’t keep their part of the deal. Well, that pretty much says who is primarily at fault.
    Don’t you think?

    Oh yes! Please do that. All women gather up in a big group hug and come to a conscious as to what they all think their golden vaginas are worth. THAT will truly be the end of marriage and any possible relationship between men and women.
    Women have already pushed the cost way too high. No woman is worth the cost in resources, or emotional distress.

    Somebody thought comparing birth control to pesticides was a really clever idea.

    HYPERGAMY. SMV. THE WALL = 0
    80/20 rule. This is a poor video with inaccurate stated premises & wrong conclusions. It comes down to female manipulation within a relationship.

    Completely omits the Keynesian idea of marginal disutility…

    All these fuckers talking about the economics of sex are fucking frauds. If they really cared about free markets. Then they would legalize prostitution. Then we will discover what the real market price for pussy happens to be.
