You could be taken more seriously if you did not resort to insults and disrespect. If you can't take the time to read the links you requested then you really can't question the facts they present.
I think it is you that can't stand that someone is not marching to your tune. But that is my opinion.
1.Don't know why it matters whether some internet posters take me seriously.
2. I said I'm reading the articles as I have time. Don't worry, friend, I'll keep you posted.
3. I've made it succinctly clear that I don't expect aonnyone to "march to my tune."
Your opinion has been duly noted. Thanks and have an enjoyable day.

My point is, which you agreed with just a few post back, is, to each her/his own. Everyone gets to do what is best for them. Apparently, you didn't mean it.

All your ranting won't change anything. Time to stop defending the indefensible on your part. I will repeat, Your position is indefensible. I am simply calling a spade a spade and you are calling it something else, your rants notwithstanding.
The fact remains that,like me, many many people have wonderful, trusting friendships with people of the opposite sex. Pops, stop projecting. It is you, as usual who are ranting. Go lecture someone who cares what you think. I'll repeat once again, sigh...you do what you want and others will do what they want. Mind your own business is the best business, dad.

You are kinda the holier then thou type, trust me, she is not. She's a user.
Enjoy her shallow friendship.

No I did not agree with you, I simply said yes to each their own. No one is calling you names for your opinion, or the hidden insults, attempt at sarcasm. etc. Don't use it on me it won't work. Too old for high school games, and your attempt to twist what I say to suit your purpose...lol! Okay!

Thanks and have a nice day!

Well of course they can! I mean the veiled question is obviously "can a married woman be friends with a single man without having sex with him?" And if that's the concern, then the marriage has more problems to begin with. Basically if a married woman wants to have extramarital sex, whether just for recreation because she's not getting what she needs at home, or for an outside romance (again, because she's not getting what she needs at home) then having a rule against friendships with other men isn't going to stop anything. So yes, of course a married woman can be friends with a single man, and vice versa. It would be a cold day in Hades when a husband could tell me who I can and cannot be friends with! LOL

I don't think anyone said it was rule. Nor did I see anyone saying they could not be friends, husband or a wife. In our marriage it is just how we respect each other, if anyone else wants to do otherwise, their choice. It works for us not too, but then again we are each others best friend, and do everything together. But rarely does it work out well, even if intentions were platonic to begin with. I have seen this happen with many people.
But I will say yes, if a person is going to cheat, they will. Like locks they only keep the honest out.

No tail wipe, she's a liar because she sticks her foot in her mouth often enough and lies so often it should make her tongue black.
Believe what you will, you would be another gray box who hides, lol. At least my profiles are known and I don't hide behind anyone or anything.

Good luck with that moral code you have, lol.

I have witnessed your handiwork enough that I don't need to listen to others opinions of you. He who is without sin, cast the first stone. Don't try to pull the wool over my eyes. It won't work.

Also in relationships where a couple does not "hang out" with single friends of opposite sex, it has nothing to do with demanding that or making it a rule, or it's a matter of distrust, it is a matter of respect and knowing it does not work. If it is what both couples agree on then there is no demanding of anything.

I agree! If one has the proper respect for one's spouse, one will never put oneself in a position that would make one' spouse uncomfortable. Anybody who demands the unconditional right to spend an inordinate amount of time with or cross certain lines short of or including adultery with opposite sex friends shouldn't be married in the first place. I will never tell anybody they should never have opposite sex friends as long as they can be friends in a responsible manner which shows respect to one's spouse.. I will not attempt to define what is ok and what isn't. I will only suggest that one google and read the results from the following: "married people opposite sex friends" My opposite sex friends know I am married and that I will never behave in any manner that would be morally improper or disrespectful to their respective spouses. Any opposite sex friend who becomes too dependent on me or acts in a manner disrespectful to my wife is subject to summary delisting as a friend.

And please don't use your Christian BS on me, worst hypocrites of all.
Then tell me you have read every post she has made to me and others .... obviously you can't. You would be stunned and amazed at her wishing death on an unborn child. And plenty of witnesses who saw the post before it was yanked
If I was so inclined, I could pull up some other hideous post, but frankly you have made up your mind and I therefore won't waste my time. You have yourself a wonderful night and remember how the devil hides behind false faces, lol.

Of course women and men can be just friends. It as to do with your inner self, not physical.
If you cannot, then obviously you have the problem.

It seems there has been some misinterpretation of my posts.
If you took offense at my properly written remarks, I apologize. Yes, I can be a bit tongue - in-cheek, which some folks may not recognize. Sarcasm? Yup, like most lively posters, it is peppered in my remarks, here and there. However, insults aren't present in my posts, unless one considers any retort or disagreement to one's narrow view to be an insult. In that case, one must educate oneself in the nuances of discourse. You may not like what I write, and I support your right to critique my comments. I'll allow you the last word on this particular conversation; I noticed that it's something for which you have an affection. Have a lovely night, friend..
