An Economic Theory of Why Women do what they do?

Some women do real horrible things that are beyond belief. Take this example

  • Husband goes to war in Iraq
  • Wife cleans him out without his knowledge (forges his signature, takes out his money, buys a new house, sells the old house etc.)
  • files for divorce and takes custody of the chidren
  • husband comes back to devastation, homelessness, and penniless
  • courts do not convict wife, gets stayed sentence for check forgery
  • husband will likely lose custody of the children and husband will be asked to pay support

Many women do this, stabbing husbands in the back and walking away w/ their kids for no apparent reason. Mostly women initiate this and husbands are the ones who hold out in hopes of reconciliation. WHY? Maybe the answer lies in utility theory, which postulates that people make choices in life that maximize their utility

  • The utility from marriage for women is in childbirth, raising the children, being loved by someone, and the money that the husband earns which helps run the family
  • Over time the utility of marriage decreases because children are born, they reach a certain age where they need not be cared for intensely, and love dwindles over time in most marriages unless BOTH husband and wife work hard to maintain it. The only utility that remains is from the money that husbands earn
  • The utility of the alternative (splitting up and taking the children and living with old parents or independently) increases over time especially if women can access the money (they steal some and the rest is granted to them by courts as child/spousal support
  • So why do husband’s hold out in the hope of reconciliation? Because most husbands go to work everyday and earn money for their family, so they can keep their wives happy and raise the kids to be honorable citizens. That is how they derive utility from the marriage and it does not decrease over time, in fact it increases over time as kids grow older, demands for money increase (kids have to go to college etc) and husbands work even harder to hold the family together
  • Now when the wife initiates divorce husbands find themselves stuck doing the job to pay child/spousal support, hardly get to see their kids, and have of course lost their wife, have suffered at the hands of the skeptical society that thinks they must have done some wrong etc. So the utility of the situation they are in is really really low and they are unable to find an alternative with higher utility. This is what also leads to SUICIDES

Hence it is imperative to keep the flame of love going since the utility of love for the woman has to be kept high–that is the only hope for men. The courts cannot provide love and love cannot be bought. OR men have to find an alternative with higher utility which is made extremely hard by the family court system and is especially hard when kids are involved.

  1. theissuedwife

    i dont let anyone force me to stay in this country after my marriage ends. No american court can do this. I saw so many times that a faithful foreign born woman is losing her children or the right to move back to her country, its ridicolous. I let my husband signed that i can leave and take the kids with me whatever happens.

    I oppose the child abduction by wife and wife fililng false dowry/DV cases on the husband just to take revenge or presurrize him. suhc woman shoud be brutally tortured & killed. their skin should be peeled off in public beaten by lashes made of nails/blades/hooks.

  3. I think we need to back away from the “skin peeling, torture, beaten with lashes” position first off. I think nothing is that simple. There is no one explanation for why marriages fail. There are hundreds of them and both parties are always to blame. Wives don’t just run off with the kids for no apparent reasons. The wife may be a mercenary bitch but is the husband an idiot that never noticed? Come on.
    Every divorce is unique because each marriage is unique.
    You can only describe the failure of your own relationships with any truth. The rest is speculation at best and at it’s worst it’s gossip.

  4. Well relatively speaking, the terror at war wasn’t a bad experience and Iraq wasn’t a bad place after all, isn’t it?

    Seems surviving wars is far more easier than surviving a wife. It makes you an unknown Soilder of a kind.

    On the utility theory: well, husbands are utilized with a patented undisputable rate of interest. Forget husband’s share of Utility.

    Quick Thoughts:
    Joining Army!!!! not a bad option again.
    But well there too a wife would be benefitted from husband’s death not sure about the nation (all depends on the war) but atleast one good point – you would be less stressed at the war front.

    Jai Hind!!!

  5. I would like to put it this way, at least for Indian Men, they themselves have created this utility-potential for themselves and now they are not able to handle this. Feminists took full advantage of this and are now reaping the benefits at our costs.
