Men..what Can We Do?!?To any men that might be reading this right now, I ask you to please hear me out and lets see if we can collectively come together on a potential purpose. I have read a lot of posts from my fellow brethren ( we are all men so i refer to each of you as a brother no matter your race or creed ) There are a lot of us that are unhappy, miserable, and there are even some that may secretly pray for death. Some of us feel as if we are stuck in a hopeless situation to where there is no escape. there are some that would love to get a divorce but due to your financial situation you can't. Plus if you look at the different state laws concerning child support, alimony, etc it leaves a lot of men in a state where they don't have a pot to **** in or a window to throw it out of. I know I haven't hit all the factors but I wonder truly, realistically and honestly. WHAT CAN WE DO!?!?! I understand that ever man's life and living situation is different but damn. I am a 31 year old African American Male that is a disabled vet. I served for 10 years and in 6 years I made it to the rank of SSG / E-6 which is not an easy task. I have been in the middle east more than the states in my 10 years of service and to be a disabled vet I have the skills of a high school grad but I have the drive and determination of a soldier. My married life fills me with a rage that surpasses all. I loved my wife and treated her better than my father treated my mother. I took care of her needs and some of her wants. I suffer from Severe PTSD ( Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ), Severe Chronic Depression due to war time experiences I have had a heat stroke and I have rhabdomyolysis ( which effects my muscles ). But I have a wife that can but won't cook and if she does its a boxed meal like Schwan's meals, won't reverence her husband and is a disappointment to me in every way. We live in a house in a great neighborhood and it would not be possible if it wasn't for my credit and my VA Certificate. I put her in this house because I feel that , that's what a husband should do, put his wife and children in a house. Well Guess what! This House feels as if it is my "Mausoleum". I mean damn when it comes to house work I cut the grass, wash the clothes so me, her and my son have clean clothes. Do dishes and I am always looking for a job. Guys look at our life's we live!! THIS IS NOT LIVING!! I believe in God and I know that we are suppose to have life and live life more abundantly because he said so. But What I want every man to think about is two things:
1.) The Law is not in our favor! But what can we do? Petition or something! If homosexuals can get all these damn rights then why can WE.
2.) What you deal with at home is it worth it? And actually this will tie back into the first question, WHAT CAN WE DO! I know there are some men that are staying because of their children or a child but check this out. Those very same children and that very same child see's what you think it doesn't. He or she knows that Daddy isn't happy. We come to this site and vent to our fellow Men, fathers, son, and brothers. But these issues....the anger..the resentment, the hate, the loathing is like a cancer and it is slow.
I have hope because of God and I desire to be a stand up comedian. I just don't want to deal with a bull$hit a$$ woman. I think that if we came together to figure out a legal and lawful way....we can do something. I would like to leave a link and I hope you check it out and I hope it makes you laugh it came from my heart and its for every man, father, son, and brother.
