The irony is that these laws were based on a stereotypical 50's lifestyle where the man was the breadwinner who worked outside the home and the woman stayed home to care for the house and children and didn't earn significant money for the household - BUT, by the time these laws came into force, this kind of lifestyle was rapidly shifting to one where the woman usually also worked outside the home and had a career.The original idea was that if a man and wife lived together for 25 or 30 years, during which time the wife stayed home to take care of him and the kids, then she never had an opportunity to earn for herself, and that "his" earnings were rightfully hers as well, which I agree with. But in a 2-earner household, this is definitely NOT true - yet the laws in most states haven't really been updated to reflect this. In California, women typically still get half of the assets - including half of the man's pension - PLUS child support, which most often means that in a divorce, she can afford to keep the house, and he ends up in a rented room or a studio apartment.When I was doing IT, there were a couple of guys who used to have me buy cheap food at Costco for them - ramen noodles and other non-refrigerated foods - because they'd gotten divorced and were in a rented room (or in one case, a rented garage) and only had a microwave to prepare food. Their wives had the house, the "nice" car, and the kids, and "dad" was lucky to see the kids a few hours a week as he had to work overtime to make ends meet.The system definitely needs an overhaul, but politically, no one want to bring it up because they'll be attacked for sexism or "being deadbeat dads."
And thus MGTOW was born as a measure to adapt to this unchanged situation.
Perhaps, but MGTOW is essentially men admitting defeat and leaving the game (and thus a big part of their potential happiness) so that they don't have to take any risks. The smarter play is to MANAGE the risks and to engage and educate to eventually overhaul the system.Just admitting defeat doesn't help anyone.
It's not like we (you or i) make up the rules of the system. Until that happens, this is all we can do - Be a low profile MGTOW but not an actual MGTOW. Never marry, never be back in poverty again.
The only way I see this as ok is if she was a stay at home wife that took care of all of the house work and stuff like that cuase she won't have anything to stand on if she doesn't but if she works full time and is fine with out it then no
If a child is involved you need to get down to details but a childless marriage I think largely that entire law is outdated
not automatically. There need to be better rules about this sort of thing
Actually, I prefer the ending in "Secret Window" Johnny Depp
Depends on reason for the divorce I'd say.
If he gets half of her assets, sure
Depends on the situation
Doesn’t always happen that way
They deserve 100%
