The B-Eatings will Continue Until the Threshing is Done

It comes to my mind that this statement by me:

Roissy didn’t have anything to teach me about marriage. First of all: I said I read him and saw myself as I had been before I’d ever heard of Roissy. Second, and more importantly: Roissy teaches against marriage!

stands a good chance of closing a loop of thought for some of you out there, and that such closure will be a conclusion that was the same as your assumption that Game is good [1] because I said I resembled someone you believe to be good not just at Game, but with women in general.

In Men’s Sphere parlance it looks something like, “He doesn’t get it because he’s a natural alpha.”, or, “That hypocrite is just trying to keep success to himself.”, or maybe the more punctual, “Fuck you, hypocrite.” If you find yourself on that loop of logic, then you can be sure that you are on a circuit of rationalization; a hamster wheel, if you will. My suggestion is for you to step off.

You either believe that wives are from God, or you don’t. You also either believe that good wives are from God, or you don’t. The delineation of good, bad, and no wives in the Bible suggests that wives are much more than partners for sex; even if sex is the beginning–and it is. Here are some possibilities for why God does or does not give a man a wife:  punishment, training, responsibility, pleasure, reflection, consequence…

The answer is: All of the Above, and that it mirrors and furthers the discipline given to mankind in Genesis 3. The gift of a wife is the gift of work, but it is a work of subsidiarity; of stewardship. The husband acts in the place of the God–the creator and owner of each of us. This wife is the franchise of which you act as owner, operator, chief bottle-washer and head-and-only janitor of Mrs. Yourself, Inc.

Here’s how St. Paul talks about it [2]:

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 that he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: 30 for we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

Now, what we hear in church is that this is a great honor to be a husband. This is true. What’s not true is that the mere presence of the wife and her worth herself which grants the honor. No; that’s wrong and blasphemous.

So what is the source of the honor? It’s the fact that the Almighty God, Lord of the Hosts of Heaven, looked down on our mortal existence, and He Who Needs No Help said:

“I want you to help me. See that parcel of land over there? Go, and prepare it as a place for Me: build it, clean it, farm it, While you’re there: Enjoy yourself, and make use of my property. Live there, eat there, and be satisfied there; as if it were your own. Bear in mind: I will hold you accountable for what I find when I return.”

In the Old Testament, it looks like this:

Thou shalt not muzzle the ox when he treadeth out the corn.

I’ll be returning to this passage later, but for now: Who of the defenders of Game as a worthy topic, can point me to a Game blog that arrived at such a conclusion on the reality and circumstances of marriage?

[1] Pay close attention to my very clear and plain English: I did not say you can’t use Game to seduce a woman.

[2] Which I’m sure everyone is tired of reading, yet the Scripture beatings will continue until…

  1. A couple of thoughts:

    1. I don’t think those who disagree with you are saying “Game is good”. It would be more accurate to say that they are asserting “Game is effective. Game works.”

    2. Wives are a gift from God, true. But good wives must be trained, it seems to me. A girl doesn’t come out of her mother’s womb being a good wife (or a bad wife, for that matter).

    3. A man husbanding his wife according to God’s command, it seems to me, has little to do with whether Game is “good” (or effective); or whether you are good at Game or good with women. Could you explain this a little more?
