  1. ya know!

    “said women value their lovers more than men in a time of economic trouble. “For the women, lovers matter more than ever now because the rest of life is so dreary,” she said. “For the men, they’re just cutting across the board.”

    so, for males looking for someone to support them, this is a good time to get into the biz … females might want to begin looking elsewhere.

  2. Ms. Barash added that women may value their lovers more today because their husbands are so miserable. “If your husband lost his job on Wall Street and he’s miserable, you need the escape,” she says.

    It’s nice to see that in these uncertain times, some things never change: any infidelity on the part of the wife is assumed to be the husband’s fault.

  3. Ben: But you don’t get it. It’s ALWAYS the man’s fault!

    If only a man were sensitive enough, manly enough, hardworking enough, listened to his wife (or something like that), and just plain bold enough, his wife would be the perfect responsive, angelic, sinless being.

    Seriously…I agree with ya. On these pages, depravity is on both sexes.

    I did, however, find the article amusing. I mean heck…we’re talking The Wall Street Journal running that article.

    I mean heck…doesn’t Rupert Murdoch have anything more serious to report?

    “Ben: But you don’t get it. It’s ALWAYS the man’s fault!

    If only a man were sensitive enough, manly enough, hardworking enough, listened to his wife (or something like that), and just plain bold enough, his wife would be the perfect responsive, angelic, sinless being.”

    hopefully what we’re, especially Amir, are achieving out here is the reality of balance and taking responsibility for what is yours regardless of whether you are male or female, red or yellow or black or white, rich or poor, etc.
