A critical examination of marriage as a social and religious institution, and whether it meets the needs of the modern woman will be the focus of The Sucka Free Dating Talk Show (http://blogtalkradio.com/askheartbeat) with host Deborrah Cooper and guest experts on Wednesday, June 10th, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. Pacific. The two most widely held beliefs about women and marriage: (1) that the goal of all women should be marriage; and (2) that marriage benefits women much more than it does men, will be openly discussed by the panel.
"Studies show that married women have the highest rate of depression of any U.S. population. With women filing more than 70% of the divorces in this country, it seems apparent that having a husband and being married is not a magic potion for women. The large numbers of foreign bride websites which promise a 'traditional wife' draws American and European men by the thousands. Obviously, many men seek traits in a wife that modern American women are not willing or interested in providing!" stated Cooper.
"Historically, marriage has benefitted men. He got a dowry, a virgin, someone to take care of his home, bear his children, provide wifely services, and who felt obligated to please him at all costs. Men seeking a traditional marriage long for a return to the good ole days; modern women eschew such ideals. Women are instead looking for an emotional connection to their husbands, to feel that they have a solid partnership along with his admiration and support. These serious differences in expectations appear to be direct contributors to the high U.S. divorce rate."
