The Traditionalist Case for Marriage

I’ve heard it said many times in the Manosphere that marriage is a bad deal for men; the woman will divorce you for “cash and prizes” as soon as she becomes “unhaaaapy”, that the family court system is anti-male, etc. etc. etc. It is claimed that marriage today is based on the woman having 100% of the authority and the man having 100% of the responsibility because the woman can call upon the state to kick the man out of the house and take away his money whenever she wants, as soon as the man no longer pleases her.

History of Family Breakdown in the United States

Family breakdown started around 1850 in the United States I would guess, certainly no later than 1870, family breakdown being visible in social statistics as soon as comprehensive social statistics started to be tabulated. From the source “100 Years of Marriage and Divorce Statistics United States, 1867-1967”, page 27 of 68, it gives the number of marriages in 1867 as 357,000 and the number of divorces as 10,000 for a divorce rate of 2.8%. According to Census data in 1870 13.1% of all females over age 10 worked, this proportion rising to 14.7% in 1880 and 17.0% in 1890. Again based on Census data in 1890 2.2% of married white native women with native parents worked, this proportion rising to 3.0% in 1900. This shows very clearly that divorce was already in the process of rising in 1870 and that women working was already in the process of rising in 1870; rising divorce and rising women working being fundamental parts of family breakdown.

The Divorce Crisis in the United States in the Late 1800s

“The Family is beyond all doubt the most important question that has come before the American people since the War.”

This is a quote from Elisha Mulford, author of the book “The Nation: the Foundation of Civil Order and Political life in the United States.” When he refers to “the War” in the above quote he is referring to the Civil War from 1861 to 1865. This quote being given shortly after the Civil War ended no later than 1885.

I think it is pretty clear and obvious that The Family is the most serious problem affecting the United States and the Western World in general at this time. I find it quite shocking that this sentiment, that the problem of the family is the most important problem facing the nation, was also being thought and discussed right after the Civil War in the 1880s.

Men’s Rights Activist Views Going Mainstream on the Right

Something extraordinary happened in the wake of the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation battle; that being the mainstreaming of MRA (Men’s Rights Activist) talk and concern about men being unfairly attacked for their sexual behavior towards women or outright being falsely accused by a woman over some kind of sexual offense. This is something that MRAs have been complaining loudly about for years and years but all of a sudden after Brett Kavanaugh was attacked for supposed sexual crimes decades in the past many mainstream voices on the right started sounding exactly like MRAs seeking to defend men from unfair sexual accusations made against them by women.
