New Girl in Town

New York, NY

I am the new girl in town and I find Sullivan County far, far from modern towns. I hear men talking to other men as though their wife was a possesion of theirs. Then in the next breath they are talking about other women and how they look. This is sexist and degrading. Some of the younger women like the attention the married men seem to be giving them. I find this sexist and degrades his wife. They even get credit for what they own as if they were the only provider. I know many of these women are nurses, teacher etc. They earn just as much or more than their husbands. Do I have to move to find a modern man who walks beside their mate as a partner.

Run for your life! Most of the good ones have been taken and those that are still single are so used to women who do not know what to do with a good man they have given up.

It is very true. Most men in this town treat women with no respect and as their possession. It is sad that women put up with it. I am one of those women. I do not feel respected by my husband. I married the most wonderful man and this town has totally changed him. Being around other men who treat their wives and girlfriends this way is addictive. It is sad when you here men of "power" in the town talk about their wives and women who are not their wives like they are meat. Just my opionion would love to hear other womens opinion.

Here are a few reasons why?

These traits were not taught growing up or they were not cool in order to be well liked.

1. Morals--of or relating to principles of right and wrong in behavior--conforming to a standard of right behavior

2. integrity-Firm adherence to a code of esp.moral or artistic values

3. Ethics--conforming to accepted professional standards or conduct.

4. Man--One poccessing in high degree the qualities considered distinctive of manhood.

This was taught instead.

1. Heathen---an unconverted member of a people or nation that does not acknowledge the God of the Bible.

Well my husband is from here and he treats me great. His friends do not treat their wives so great, but it does not affect the way he treats me. He's a big bad ass and doesn't tolerate any crap from others. But he treats me and our kids great. When it comes to our family he's a loving, caring, wonderful man. My advice to those of you getting treated like crap....It's NOT worth it. If your man doesn't appreciate you and treat you with respect then dump him. There's a man out there that will treat you right. Believe me because I know. This is my third marriage and I FINALLY found Mr. Right!!!! Good luck to all of you.
