Leo Tolstoy's Thoughts on Marriage

Guys,

I was reading more of the "Fu*$ked Company" thread (excerpts of which Happyghost posted on the MGTOW forum) when I saw these quotes by Leo Tolstoy. Looks like marriage has been a big risk for men for a long, long time...

-----------------

"Tie yourself up with a woman, and like a chained convict, you lose all freedom . . . If you only know what women in general are! Egotism, vanity, silliness, triviality in everything. That's what women are when they show themselves as they really are...No, don't marry, my dear friend. Don't marry!"
--- Leo Tolstoy, "War and Peace"

"Women are generally stupid, but the devil lends her brains when she works for him. Then she accomplishes miracles of thinking, farsightedness, constancy, in order to do something
nasty."
--- Leo Tolstoy 1898

------------------

The last quote was from 1898. As I said, marriage is a big, big risk for men, and it has been for a long, long time. Oh well, feminism LIBERATED us from that-yes! Until next time...

Hey Mark,

It looks like the MRA Activists on Reddit are going off on us

I guess if preaching Do Not Get Married or have kids, Focus on bachelor hobbies you enjoy doing, and Rent college age pussy by the hour/Go on Over Seas Bachelor vacations as opposed to getting involved in long term relationships are too extreme than I take great pride in being a radical.

Any publicity is good publicity!

this is what will eventually sabotage the MRM. they just want things to go back to the way they were, but we have gone beyond the point of no return a long time ago.

OK... just a few words from someone who has read all the works of Tolstoy (in Russian) several times over...

I love Tolstoy. He is my favorite Russian classic. He was a genius. But he was also a bit of a whacko.

Let me put it this way: Tolstoy allowed his disappointment in marriage and women carry him a little too far, up to the point when in The Kreutzer Sonata he vilifies sex altogether, calling it "unnatural".

I've read that his own marriage was a disappointment, too; he was an idealist who yearned for a simple life, while his wife wanted social success and all the nice things.

My own opinion on this is, nothing promotes one's happiness and success (both material and spiritual) like a good marriage, and nothing destroys a person like a bad marriage.

20 years ago, my grandad, then in his ninetis told me: War, job, love, marriage, kids... everything is risk, therefore to be a man you have to learn to manage risks.
