Modern women and contempt
Something about modern women makes them a bit alien! I have no idea why...
It's rare, as in almost non-existent that I hear a woman talking about her husband without contempt of some sort. I'm not sure what happened or how it happened. But I'm noticing guys paying respect for their women -in their absence- more than ladies.
This is completely the opposite of engaged and "dating" couples. Where the girl would be talking fondly of the guy, over inflating him in so many ways. (While the guys also appear to downplay their girlfriends)
So what is exactly that makes men and women react like that after marriage?
You don't have to look far for examples of women giving bare minimum level of respect to their husbands. It really puzzles me sometimes. But he's always referred to in the third person, even when he's right there. I've seen this happen way more than I like.
So why is that, really? Why that level of contempt to husbands? Especially when the woman is talking to her girlfriends, or family. But it still bleeds to normal talk with complete strangers!
Things that make me go hmmm!
What makes me feel bad about these things is that, for most people, the couple's "worth" isn't separable. So if you put one of them down. You're putting both of them down. (I'm not sure if these women know it, but by being in contempt towards their husbands, people appear to react by "evaluating" them less)
Weird! I guess, that's one great case of karma
