1527419347_825c51d903_m.jpgIt’s pretty easy to see why both of Dennis Prager’s marriages ended in divorce.

It is an axiom of contemporary marital life that if a wife is not in the mood, she need not have sex with her husband. Here are some arguments why a woman who loves her husband might want to rethink this axiom. 

Now there’s some family values I can get behind. Preach on, Dennis!

First, women need to recognize how a man understands a wifes [sic] refusal to have sex with him: A husband knows that his wife loves him first and foremost by her willingness to give her body to him.

That is so true.

All that emotional support, companionship, understanding, patience, respect, loyalty, life partnership, wit, caring, sickness and health, rich or poor, bearing your children, etc., etc. None of that matters. If she doesn’t put out as often as you want, it means she doesn’t love you.

And what happens when you refuse to do us, ladies?

Every man who is sexually faithful to his wife already engages in daily heroic self-control. He has married knowing he will have to deny his sexual natures desire for variety for the rest of his life. To ask that he also regularly deny himself sex with the one woman in the world with whom he is permitted sex is asking far too much. Deny him enough times and he may try to fill this need with another woman.

Bingo. Do you really want to force us to get some on the side? Give. It. Up.

Unlike Dennis, I’ve only been married to one woman and never divorced, so my insights on women and marriage are obviously inferior to his. But with my limited perspective, I’ve carefully come to the conclusion that he’s a sexist neanderthal asshole who deserves to die alone.

What do you think?
