Would you believe Ursula when she says "It's she who holds her tongue, who gets a man"?

This occurred in the Disney song "Poor Unfortunate Souls", although I'm sure almost everyone has heard this song at least once in their life! Is it true? Women who don't talk much are the ones who get the men?

  • Nah. A woman speaks her mind and expresses her feelings, a girl keeps her mouth shut. Relationships don't work out because you don't "annoy" or man or because you're annoying. A man isn't going to want his girlfriend/wife to hold her tongue unless she's just being nasty.

  • No, I don’t think there is much merit to this. Most people prefer to be around others who they can hold an interesting, intelligent conversation with and usually want to have some polite debate. I know I could never be able to be near some ‘yes’ man who only ever agrees with me because that would get dull fast.

  • I couldn't be in a relationship with someone who couldn't hold an in depth conversation with their own opinions that won't always line up with mine, otherwise it just isn't fun. I would only ever date outspoken women as long as they weren't rude or confrontational

  • You are kind of misinterpreting what she is saying. Holding your tongue esentially means that you aren't argumentative. In this case Ursula is saying how the girl who doesn't question what a man says gets the guy. It is a fairly sexist comment but was accurate for the time the movie was set. That being said, I'm sure most respectable men would want a woman who spoke up if she didn't agree with something. After all marriage is about two people making decisions together, not about one calling the shots and the other just being along for the ride.

  • I'm fairly quiet, don't like talking and I got the man. At least in my case it's true.

  • No. When I was quiet I was never approached by guys. Ever. And when I'm quiet now, guys just stare. When I'm talkative guys take notice and actually talk and flirt with me.

  • If a man is shallow and only cares about the way a woman looks and either doesn’t care if she has a brain or opinions, or if he wants a woman who’s submissive and has no mind of her own, then yes. Fortunately, from what I’ve seen men like that are few and far between.

  • Yep, there's definitely some truth to it. Emphasis on some. Men tend to want someone to play with, so if he wants game, then game you gotta give. But for the most part, it's compromise. If being right matters more than coming to an agreement, your relationship won't last long. They say people high in agreeability make great teammates, and that includes holding your tongue at times even if what you'd like to do is lay it all out on the table.

  • No. The original fairytale proved this because the prince fell in love with a woman who could speak and the little mermaid turned into sea foam.

    • I just didn't agree with certain viewpoints. I never said that they were untrue. I listened to other opinions, but I wasn't required to agree with them

    • Correction: I wouldn't say that others' opinions are "wrong" because everyone thinks differently

  • It's not "not talking" but about what they say and how they say it. Men want women who are kind and don't complain/nag constantly. But no talking? That's just boring. You have to have good conversations with people.

    • Also its better to stay quiet if the only conversation topics you have are trivial or gossip.

  • As long as their are moments of silence I'll be fine I don't mind the chatter but it has to be able to be quiet too I get stressed out by constant noise easy

  • The interesting thing about that is Ursala is merely repeating something Triton had said earlier, that under his ocean Ariel is to keep quiet and let him rule. Ursula os actually Triton's sister who was also suppressed by Triton during their reign as rulers of the sea.
    Mad, alone and resentful, she saw the perfect moment to teacb Ariel a lesson. Ariel chose to be mute, thean fell in love with her her. It symbolizes giving up your voice for another.

    Ursula didn't mean it literally, she meant it as a sardonic joke.
