SURVEY FINDS: Women Are More Superficial Than Men

I gotta make that call...

I was less than surprised by these findings, since I said women were more superficial than men in 2011, but no one ever listens to WisdomIsMisery. Oh well.

Anyone who has been unfaithful and then gone to couples therapy to “work on the marriage” — assuming he or she hasn’t already been given the boot — knows that the therapist probably isn’t going to take his or her side.

Q: Is it possible to love your spouse and family, but still constantly need an outside sexual outlet? A question as old as time, do unfaithful men really love their spouses and family?

“I’m supposed to trust it, after he touched it?” — Beanie Sigel, “Bread and Butter” If you went outside and polled 100 men on what would happen if his woman cheated on him, it’s a safe bet roughly 99 of those men would say they’d kick her to the curb. For some men (I’m playing it […]
