newwave Posted May 6, 2010 Share Posted May 6, 2010 This isn't just aimed at certain people here, but in general. Seems that when I've told people my standards, I am told that I need to lower my standards. However these aren't "standards" these are morals and values. For instance my major ones are divorce, single parenthood, and parenthood in general. In most cases (I'd say 90% easily) I think divorce is wrong. I agree with divorce in the cases of infidelity and abuse, but otherwise generally not. I am tired of meeting people and them saying they got a divorce because they didn't love the spouse anymore, or they changed. I'd tell them to suck it up. This is true with regards to kids. Kids generally should be raised by married couples. This is especially true when it comes to single parenthood. I am morally opposed to having kids out of wedlock. It's wrong and shows me the person has a lack of morals. These are my views and people should respect that we all have different values (or lack thereof). By saying this does this mean I'd go up to a guy never married with a kid and say he has no morals? Of course not, but the reality is his morals don't match mine. Most divorced men also don't have the same morals as me. There are enough divorced women out there that might be interested in them. I want to marry once unless my spouse dies and I want someone who feels the same way. A divorced guy in most cases doesn't feel the same way, because they got a divorce. I realize that many women file for divorce but I'd have to question why. Was it because the guy was a chauvinist? Was he cheating? Too many questions. I realize this lessens the dating pool and might leave out some great guys but it's a chance I have to take. I might reconsider in the case of a guy briefly married and his wife left him I know some people might say by me posting this I am not respecting their views, but the reality is I don't care what someone does, just don't expect me to bypass how I feel. I do not go up to people and tell them I disagree with their lifestyle. Link to comment
