Did you know: According to the 2010 U.S. census, there is a 50% chance that you will be divorced within seven years and a 70% chance that (your future wife) will be the one who will ask for the divorce ; if you’re living in a state that has no-fault divorce laws, according to Margaret F. Brinig & Douglas W. Allen’s “These Boots are Made for Walking” Why Most Divorce Filers are Women . And surprisingly, 2011 U.S. census data showed that women were less likely than men to pay their child support. WHAT! A 1999 study done by the American Association of Blood Banks even shows that 3 out of 10 guys are raising children where they are not the biological fathers (simply put, women cheat). After breakup/divorce men between the ages of 20 and 29 are three times more likely to commit suicide than women. This was the eighth leading cause of death for all men living in the United States in 2005, according to the 2008 National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. As if that’s not enough, women are just as physically abusive as men, according to research done by psychologist John Archer and sociologist Murray Straus that reads:
“….men and women exhibit roughly equal rates of violence within relationships; some studies hint that women’s rates of physical aggression are slightly higher. This apparent equality is not solely a result of women fighting back, because it holds even for altercations that women start.”
Finally, According to the 2012 National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS), 53.5 percent of women were the perpetrators of child maltreatment, compared to 45.3 percent of men.
Well,what does this mean? It means that women are human beings not angels, and are just as capable of committing the same exact, shameful acts as us men! Young men growing up today in single-parent homes are being duped by social media, women’s groups, etc., into believing men are the ones who mostly screw up in relationships between men and women, leading to the breakup of the family household. We now know that this is the furthest thing from the truth. Consequently, this misconception has caused young men raised by single mothers to go into marriage with a misunderstanding of women and no understanding of the five basic principles of man-hood usually taught by fathers or other positive male figures. These principles are: builder, provider, protector, lawmaker and enforcer of his home and community. If a young man today does not have an understanding of these principles or is in company with a woman who is unfamiliar with these male traits, in my opinion, your marriage may be doomed, as the data shows. The Basic Instructions Before Lovin’ Eve, aka the B.I.B.L.E. is written to help good young men raised by single women understand the different types of women (good, bad, etc.) that are out there, the mind games to watch out for, your role as a man in your relationship, and even the court system (-if you find yourself divorced and seeking visitation to see your child). So before you put a ring on it, let the B.I.B.L.E. help guide you in your quest to search for your future Eve. But! When you’re in the abyss of love, you might not always listen to the advice given, because the heart does not always do what the mind tells it to. Whatever the case; this book’ (which comes from my 40 plus years of personal experience as a good man) will at least give you some understanding of the type of woman you’re in a relationship with, the strength of the relationship, and actions to take when a relationship fails.
