Kneel


darth

As a kid and also into my blue pill younger days, I vowed never to kneel when asking a chick to marry me.  It just seemed so degrading.  The whole kneeling thing struck me as begging, and even as I kid I knew that a man should never beg a woman.  Combined with the fact that marriage was the bigger benefit to her made the whole concept seem ludicrous.

As I got older, wedding became more and more over the top.  Everything had to be expensive, everything had to be perfect.  The groom was just a small fashion accessory lost in the sea of extravagance.  But then, if he started the whole chain of events by kneeling, then he only has himself to blame.  Once frame is lost, it is difficult to regain.

Women probably like to say that kneeling is all so romantic.  I am not buying it.  It is about giggling that a man put himself in such a position.  It is about showing him who is  boss.  If I could figure this out at time when I couldn’t figure much of this out, then there really must be something there.

    Actually this has been on my mind. Getting on a knee ???

    WHY THE FUCK SHOULD A GUY BUY A GIRL A RING ??? A payoff to society and the De Beers mafia ? And what to do when you want to tell a girl … you ain’t gettin no ring. And even if I did it for my own protection (other guys see the ring and know she’s married) do any guys even care about a ring anymore. No blue ping, mangina, dickless, low-t, faggot is going to be hitting on her anyway. And a Red Pill, Alpha ain’t gonna care about a ring anyway.

    So why ? Anyone got a reason why a man ought to buy a woman a ring ?

    Search Wikipedia on “Wedding Ring”. They have a good overview. Seems the custom goes all the way back to ancient Egypt.

    Under the heading of men and women think differently.
    s
    I proposed. Didn’t kneel. It was during an informal conversation about obligations that both of us had in the near-term future. It just made sense to bite the bullet and formally acknowledge that we would get married, so that we could schedule around that. She agreed. The assumption that we would end up married had existed between us for some time, but had not ever been formally acknowledged until that time.

    Had the wedding rehearsal. Then the wedding. She had thought about it to the point that she just assumed it was a given. So – no need to bring it up at the rehearsal. I had never thought about it at all, and so it didn’t occur to me to think about it at the rehearsal. (Jewelry and watches bother me so I’ve never worn them to be familiar with what normally goes where.) But, during prime time, the time came for me to take the wedding ring from my best man and place it on her finger. And it immediately became obvious that both of us had overlooked something. Umm … which hand? Which finger? She knew me well enough to interpret the look on my face and proferred the correct hand and finger (actually, I think I had taken hold of the wrong hand and she shook me off and offered the othe one). Then it was her turn to place the ring on my finger. Umm … which hand? Which finger? She just grabbed the correct hand and slid the ring on.

    We were watching tv one day in March and I said “so a June wedding or July?”
    She said “The fall, September or October, I am getting a coffee, ya want one?”

    It was just matter of fact.

    From here – http://www.engagementringbible.com/engagement-traditions-and-origin/

    “People don’t really get down on one knee for much these days, unless they’re tying their shoelaces. So why do we do it when we’re proposing marriage? It’s a tradition that dates back to the days of knighthood, chivalry and formal courtship (i.e. medieval times and beyond). Knights would get down on one knee in front of their lord as a display of respect, obedience, and loyalty. It was also a common occurrence in religious ceremonies, and in those days marriage and religion were intrinsically linked. So when a courteous gentlemen was proposing to his lady, pledging his allegiance to her and declaring his undying love for her, getting down on one knee was the natural thing to do.”

    It is commonly believed that the first examples of wedding rings were found in ancient Egypt. Relics dating to 6,000 years ago, including papyrus scrolls, are evidence of the exchange of braided rings of hemp or reeds between spouses. Ancient Egypt considered the circle to be a symbol of eternity, and the ring served to signify the perpetual love of the spouses. This was also the origin of the custom of wearing the wedding ring on the ring finger of the left hand, because the ancient Egyptians believed that this finger enclosed a special vein that was connected directly to the heart,[3] denominated in Latin the “Vena amoris”.

    The Western traditions of wedding rings can be traced to ancient Rome and Greece, and were first associated with the marital dowry and later with a promise of fidelity. The modern exchange of rings derived from the customs of Europe in the Middle Ages as part of Christendom.[4] In the United States, wedding rings were initially only worn by wives, but became customary for both husbands and wives during the 20th century.[5]

    “Why is American great? I’d say it’s because America is the world’s safety valve. So if your country’s a sh*thole or turning into a sh*thole, you can always get on a boat and come here. That’s the way it’s been for over 150 years. If you’re tired of living under stultified European monarchies, come to where kings and dukes get laughed at. Or if your country is ravaged by famine (Ireland), come to where there’s plenty of food and freedom to grow it without the king’s soldiers showing up to take most of it away. And these features of American are precious things that we need to hold onto, because there are many nowadays who would erase them, who would bring back the European models are ancestors came here to get away from, all the while piously proclaiming they’re doing it in the name of ‘fairness’ and ‘equality’. But if that’s what they want, they need to go back to where it is, not f* it up here for everyone else. Because what mean by ‘equality’ want is ‘equality of outcome’. Of course, you’re never going to get that because the talents and abilities of individuals are not evenly distributed. And trying to force outcomes takes a lot of force and the outcomes will be meager. Look at Venezuela’s descent into madness. That country is sitting on a metric f*ck-ton of oil, yet now her citizens are breaking into zoos to butcher the animals for food. It sounds like a chapter out of an Ayn Rand novel. That’s the end result of ‘fairness’ and ‘equality’. Everyone starving together.”

    “Directed by Rupert Sanders, the film is based on the life of Dante ‘Tex’ Gill (to be played by Johansson), who ran an empire of massage parlors in Pittsburgh’s underground sex industry in the 1970s,” reports HuffPo. “While Gill’s gender identity has been described differently in various publications, most believe the crime boss identified as transgender.”

    SJWs feel that the cisgendered Johansson being in the role steals from other qualified transgender actors.

    Women hold nearly two-thirds of all student debt in the US, according to a report from the American Association of University Women, a group that advocates for equity and education for women and girls.

    Part of the reason is that more women go to college. They represented 56% of students enrolled in the fall of 2016.
    But that doesn’t explain the whole gender gap.

    More women take out loans, and when they do, they borrow more money. The average woman owes $2,740 more than a man upon finishing a bachelor’s degree, the report said.

    Women are also repaying their debt more slowly, which can mean they’re paying more in interest over time.

    I have seen women size each other up by the size of their diamond, like it’s a competition. So silly. Especially since according to a diamond expert/Trader I know said, they actually aren’t that rare. It’s all hype. And unlike metals like gold or silver or platinum, they do not have any “resale value” in the open market. Many of the gals into the big rocks trade up their stone over the years.
