…and always has been. Why all the recent carping about the guys hold all the cards in shidduchim?December 26, 2010 12:49 am at 12:49 am #1024713popa_bar_abbaParticipant
G-d made man, then he made woman to help him.
The entire purpose of a woman’s existence is to solve the problem of “lo tov heyos ha’odom levado”.December 26, 2010 1:53 am at 1:53 am #1024714pumperMember
“Why all the recent carping about the guys hold all the cards in shidduchim?”
Because these issues have only surfaced recently. When my parents were dating, the world wasn’t so skewed in favor of the boys.
(BTW- Can’t you just tell that the OP is a man, that is such a male attitude!)December 26, 2010 2:03 am at 2:03 am #1024715adorableParticipant
i think everyone is in favor of men because they look at them as strong and capable and able to conquer whatever comes their way.l I think however that i have seen too many men fall in and do the wrong thing that i think they are not so “great” anymore. i am still not sure however why they get kadima over girls and it bothers me greatly! (i am a girl you know after all)December 26, 2010 2:19 am at 2:19 am #1024716dunnoMember

p_b_a: at the time of “heyos adam levado” man and woman were still one being.

This is comparable to a man sitting in a hospital bed with a bad disease. The doctors pump him full of pain killers to ward off the pain. A healthy person standing nearby says “Its not fair that he has a higher pain tolerance now because of all that painkillers you gave him”. It is common knowledge that man’s lower spiritual level is the cause of our need for the mitzvos and by extension attributes that will help us do them.
Similarly, women’s role of serving the husband is related to the aspect of ‘mekabel’ that they personify as opposed to ‘mashpiah’ that the husband has. However, this too is to our detriment as in the “World that is All Truth” EVERYONE must be a ‘mekabel’ from HKB”H. Because of this men will have a harder time adjusting to that new reality than women.December 26, 2010 7:34 pm at 7:34 pm #1024720CedarhurstMember

11 people on a rope
Eleven people were hanging on a rope under a helicopter
10 men and 1 woman
The rope was not strong enough to carry them all,
so they decided that ONE had to leave,
because otherwise they were all going to fall.
They weren’t able to choose that person,
until the woman gave a very touching speech.
She said that she would voluntarily let go of the rope, becasue
as a woman she was used to giving up evertyhing for her husband
and kids, or for men in general, and was used to
always making sacrifices with little in return.
As soon as she finished her speech,
all the men started clapping…….December 27, 2010 11:37 pm at 11:37 pm #1024727Derech HaMelechMember

How do men hold the cards in shiduchim? Every date takes two people saying yes and showing up. And then of course the men must drive and pay and then if they marry support the woman for the rest of their lives.July 30, 2014 4:04 pm at 4:04 pm #1024729nishtdayngesheftParticipant

Nishtdaingesheft: I was about to point out that the OP was silly because it’s a man’s world but it ain’t nothing without a woman or a girl…
