Status and Marriage


On a recent thread Blurkel stated,

For the record (and this was told to me by a woman I grew up with who later became a behavioral psychologist), the feminine status hierarchy goes like this:

1. Married Mother
1a. Widow
2. Married Woman
3. Unmarried Woman (where all women start out)
4. Divorced Woman (She had control of a man, and threw him away)
5. Prostitute (She temporarily sells what men are expected to pay much more dearly for)

And today at Dalrock’s,

Liška understands, at least in her gut, what the most dangerous remaining threat to divorce is.  This threat is the status women gain from marriage (or something like marriage).  This is what her post is really about, decrying the one force which is standing in the way of moral progress.  Liška read the NYT article I referenced here, and was disturbed that women in the comments section were bragging that they had the status of remaining married, a status that Liška and her friend no longer have.  This must stop:

The comments section, however, was disturbingly duration focused: “I want to kill him a lot the time, but we’ve made it 20-35-50 years, ha-ha!”

Is quantity of time a measure of its quality? Exactly how many “and yets” does a person have to take?

If law offers an out to marriage, society continues to act as its enforcer. We continue to promote marriage longevity like it’s an endurance event. We reward and acknowledge it by milestone with anniversary parties and bragging rights…

So what does a woman get from marriage with respect to status?  And where does it come from?

Let us consider some possibilities,

I.   She had enough “quality” about her such that a man chose to marry her.  However, if men are the horrible creatures that Feminists claim that they are, would this make any sense?

Perhaps in the modern day it implies that she had enough “something” to catch a man for sperm and a wallet?  Would this be something to be proud of?

II.  The historical inertia is such that as is suggested above that a woman without a man has something wrong with her.  In times past, this type of thing was whispered about such women.  For if a woman did not marry a man that could support her in making children, then she was a failure.  The reproductive bottleneck that she represented was wasted on her.  There would seem be something intuitive and deep-seated about this notion that endures, and cannot be easily erased with Feminism’s endless indoctrination attempts.

III.  In the modern world, especially among men, divorcees are viewed poorly.  The thoughts of divorce-rape and EPL are never far from men’s minds.  Perhaps women sense this view among men.   But almost always seemingly after their divorce for some unknown reason.

IV.  A married Mom has high prestige because she is raising the next generation and is not a burden to society while doing so (hopefully).

Now it is your turn.  Why do married women (especially Moms) have more prestige? Or perhaps why do SSIW (Strong Single Independent Women) not have prestige?

NAWALT applies of course.

    Why do married women (especially Moms) have more prestige?

    Personal anecdote time! When I still worked at my previous job (retail, but for a very large chain) I was an Assistant Manager, but very quickly got in the running for a promotion. I got turned down in favor of the other A.M., who was a single mom with 2 kids. Afterwards, I heard her telling a coworker that the (female) boss told her during the interview “I just don’t feel comfortable giving a single woman this type of responsibility. If she’s selfish enough to not care about having kids, how could I trust her to make the proper scheduling decisions?”

    Or perhaps why do SSIW (Strong Single Independent Women) not have prestige?

    I’ve been told I do not because I’m;
    1. Over 30,
    2. Never married (or divorced)
    3. Have no children
    4. Am not dating, and (worst of all)
    5. Not planning on doing 2-4 anytime soon.
    Apparently having a (presumably) fertile womb and not using it means I’m the Devil. How dare I have eggs and not use them! 😛

    In that comment, I neglected to include that this is how women rank each other. Society and men have little control or influence over this status ranking process.

    Case in point. Think back to when Monica Lewinsky was news. Katie Couric happened to have Donna Rice to interview regarding a book Ms. Rice had written. Couric instead wanted Rice to explain how Monica could do such a thing to Hillary. Once Rice gave Couric what she wanted, the conversation turned to her book, and Couric grew noticeably hostile. Among the other things Rice tried to point out to Couric that she was no longer the party girl of the Monkey Business scandal which sank Gary Hart’s political career. She got a wistful look on her face as she held up her left hand to show off her wedding ring. “I got married,” she mentioned hesitantly, clearly seeking some kind of acceptance.

    She didn’t get it. Couric was completely unmoved and showed no hint of acceptance.

    In light of what my friend told me, I could see the process at work during this interview. It was VERY clear to me that Couric was never going to forgive or forget the Rice on Hart’s lap in the infamous photo, and nothing Rice did would ever change that.

    I’m sure that Monica Lewinsky has had similar experiences.

    Yes, Blurkel, I agree that Monica Lewinsky has had similar experiences. I believe she even did some kind of article (or book?) that got press maybe a year ago, that told of how her life has since been completely ruined for that one decision. People do rate women and judge them on their decisions (and past) so it’s part of “herd think” (I think) to try to keep them all in line so to speak, but also not let them easily get out of their “caste system.”

    Lewinsky was probably ranked lower than prostitutes since she did it for free… and she’s apparently been reaping the effects of it since it happened. It’s sad.

    Or is all just one more thing that is contradictory about women?

    I think it seems a lot more contradictory because different women are wanting different things, and at different ages. Same with the manosphere…people get confused because there’s PUAs and Tradcons and MRAs and MGTOW, who can overlap, but generally have very different goals.

    Women don’t understand why they are confused. The confusion is feminism in-group bias / group think.

    Women run with the in-group bias as it’s our nature. The fish-bike group think *seems* to slot very nicely into in-group bias, however fish-bike group think is very anti nature.

    How could this happen? Feminism took away nature’s balance for in-group bias, which was women accepting male control over female reproduction. Molly and I are very very lucky. Our mums trained us, else we would never have seen the truth for ourselves. We have vertical group-think.

    See, that would have worked in the past because nearly everyone wanted a family. Thus, it was preferable for women to not have bastard that would be difficult to raise and given fewer resources. Likewise, men (who, unless they were “alphas”, didn’t have a huge N either) would prefer to have kids they knew were of their lineage. Thus, the majority of men and women would have very low N, a definite desire to create a family, and would work towards that goal to create a stable relationship with both resources and nurturing.

    Although Feminists cannot rationalize it, they are actually desperately worried that the boot might be shifting to the other foot. For the first time, women might have to face their own obsolescence. The irony is that they have forced this situation upon themselves.

    As we’ve discussed, artificial wombs, sexbots and/or sex in augmented reality are in the offing. In fact, alternative reality could take over completely and remove all need for government and institutions.

    All I know for sure is that no one is harder on a woman than another woman.

    @ Fuzzie

    Neither husbands nor fathers can check women’s behaviors. That leaves government.

    Seriuosly? Nothing is more beta than the lobby of our elected public officials!

    The children are just tools in service of the above.

    It seems to me that men are more willing to pay child support than they are alimony. Thus, you may be correct.

    @ Fuzzie

    Rationally, hating half the population doesn’t make sense.

    Yet history records many great fortunes were generated via this process. DuPont and Nobel are but two examples that people should know about.

    It’s great to mix with sane people and Spawny.

    Use wooden utensils to stir. They don’t strike sparks.

    Hell we might even crown Fuzzy our Philosopher King.

    And we’ll bestow the regnal name of “Shardik”?

    It’s like reading Johnny the Homicidal Manic, but in technicolor.

    After reading Chester the Molester, little can faze me.

    @ Ton

    I thought folks only dream in grey scale.

    The deeper you are asleep while dreaming, the more likely the colors show up.

    I have problems with Llamas With Hats.

    Is that the sequel to “My Pet Goat”?

    @ Tarn

    Nobody should get a reward for being born, after all.

    Oh?

    Maybe this one will work better:

    @ Tarn, I thought the same thing about rem and the whole everyone dreams but not everyone remembers thing. I didn’t complete the research thing mostly because it was a monumental pain in the ass to be a lab rat

    That awake and not awake thing sounds scary in a freaky sort of way. When I misplaced my lung… well I knew I was in trouble because it was the 1st time in my life my body did not do as command.

    Ha! I can imagine you wouldn’t be too keen on being a research subject.

    Re: awake but not
    Meh. You get used to it. Used to be terrifying as a child, especially since it makes it feel like someone is sitting on your chest. Also can cause auditory/visual hallucinations, like people whispering right next to your ear or shadows standing next to your bed. I’m confident that all these “alien abductions” people report are just them having sleep paralysis and never doing any research on it. At least if *you* ever had it, you’d probably just figure out the same muscle relaxation techniques I did to snap out of it quicker. Seems you’d likewise be very motivated to get it under control.
