In the real world, you don't get to claim victimhood while doing nothing to change the situation. Maybe if women weren't taught to put up with abuse and second-class status, there would be far less abuse. But, on the other hand, the RCC often counsels women to stay in the marriage.

<quoted text>whatever happened to rosesz? She has been on another thread and posted she was tired of me posting to her for that last five years. I don't ever recall her being on the abortion forum ,which she was posting about and the Catholic forum for five years, have you? Wonder who she really is... Also, I know a lady who remarried after many years of being a widow, she is Catholic,she married a METHODIST MINISTER . The wedding was at the Catholic Church! And she had the mass with it!
Rose used to post here a few years back. When she returned, she stated she hadn't posted here in a couple years. Several posters here, including me, remember back when she was posting regularly.

If she doesn't want to post here, she doesn't have to. That goes for everyone. Even you.

They sure do. In my observations, even when one is widowed, there is a definite societal discrimination toward single women; especially those with kids. In some areas and ways, it's very blatant. More often, though, it's generally subtle and leaves a person shaking their head, wondering WTF just happened.

Personally, when I became a single mom (after years of marriage), I was taught/told to remain optimistic, upbeat, and with a can-do attitude. That if I just worked for it, it would happen. There were more hoops to jump through, longer hours to work, more money going out than coming in... etc., etc. Some influential women are still spouting this "magical formula" as *the* key to success, but from what I've seen it's more a dud than reality.

In reality, we need higher education and quality childcare with affordable prices that doesn't leave you in debt for twenty years.

Stockholm Syndrome are the extreme cases. Most women with an abuser make a conscious decision to stay or go. Weigh out the benefits over the detriments. Some women never divorce, but they do separate. I think that is the better option. Hindsight tells me I shoulda stuck to that plan when I left.'Cause then ex wouldn't've spent the last 18yrs trying to punish me at the expense of his personal relationship with the kids.

But he's dead now -- and you know what his widow was legally allowed to do with his estate? She managed to stretch $7K he'd gotten from a legal action involving me and was supposed to go to CSE to pay arrears and then half sent back to me. That's what the intent was behind it. But *she* managed to stretch that $7K to cover *his* final hospital bill totally over a $100K. A whopping $90 was sent to CSE which they sent on to me to cover over $60K in CS arrears.

It was crap and I've yet to find an attorney who can explain to me how throughout their marriage, per the antenuptial agreement, his child support issues with me remained separate from his marriage to her. So how was she able to usurp this $7K that was legally between me and him to cover community debt between him and her?

This is how society treats single/divorced/widowed moms, K&P. You need to open your eyes to reality.

You're making a woman a victim of her own pregnancy. Her developing child is a bully now?C'mon now.
A woman is the victim of her own pregnancy. Even Mary needed reassurance that her pregnancy was necessary. Women do lose in Vatican roulette.

Mean-spirited toward Catholics, eh?
Or just toward you?

You weren't exactly the welcoming committee when Rose was nothing but nice to you. Or have you forgotten?

I do live in the real world--mine doesn't include sacred spoiled virgins, zombie carpenter, or sacrificial cannibalism.

She was asking about two non-Catholics, even if she didn't use the word two.
Why? Because the Catholics in their family nag them, maybe? Who cares why? The question was asked, and has been answered.
The question doesn't make sense that way.
Catholics in a family of non Catholics would know two non- Catholics couldn't marry in Church so why would they 'nag' them to so?

I know some women who have been through the same type of situation and it is truly unfair. I have a friend who lost half of her worth to a worthless ex husband.

This may seem of the track but was your husband a man who loved God?

Can you separate a love of God from a religion which has had men who abused their power and did indefensible acts. Or is it all the same to you, that if you were baptised Catholic and love God you are in some way guilty of being a pedophile supporter?

In the end, regardless of what he'd been as a kid, he was a man who loved himself above all else.

Sadly, she probably got tired of being stalked and harassed by that crazybitch Knit/Husker. If she turns up I will mention that you were asking for her.

Have a nice weekend.

You reap what you sow. You are mean-spirited towards anyone who doesn't agree with everything you post. I know your putrid behavior is actually not typical of most Catholics, and that's a good thing.

What do you actually want? To come here to be the biggest a~hole around and then have others treat you with respect and affection? You do your religion a serious disservice by acting the way you do and treating people like dogshit.

You come off as seriously sick in the head.

All Husk did was stalk and harass Rose. Just when it seems Knut can't possibly get any crazier and bitchier she outdoes herself yet again.

Here's a little newsflash for you, sASSy. Pregnancy IS a disease to ME, as I'm DONE with the whole procreation thing.

Thankfully, I can avoid that unwanted outcome to the best of my ability by using reliable contraception to prevent it. So far, so good. Using contraception to avoid unwanted pregnancy is one of the seven benefits of being CF (Catholicism-FREE). I so love NOT being pregnant.

Motherhood: OPTIONAL, not required.

How would C have KNOWN they couldn't UNTIL she asked the question, you Moron? It makes perfect sense.

You are 100% correct. There is nothing more to add.
