When it comes to wealth in a capitalistic society, there are rules of engagement. In a way, it is no different than sports. When it comes to sports, you must know the rules, train for them, have a strategy and execute like a professional. When you don’t know the rules of engagement or how to train, you

Without getting into who funds BLM, George Soros and the Ford Foundation, what has BLM done for the black community? It seems they are Johnny on the spot when a black man is beaten or killed by non-black police officers. Yet, they are nowhere to be found when a black man is killed through gang violence. The paradox is they get great exposure when a black male is abused by law enforcement. At the same time, they are against

Dating is becoming increasingly complex in the US. While social constructs are being turned upside down, dating rules have stayed the same. Women earn more than men. Yet, men are still responsible for financing dates. When you add high divorce rates, the fear of infidelity and an enormous amount of unemployed men, dating becomes an almost impossible task. This has resulted in a

Marriage has come a long way from where it started. In western culture, marriage was not always a ceremonious event. It started as a verbal agreement between two people. Your word was your bond. If it didn’t work, divorce was just as simple. However, when it did work, roles were clear and simple. The couple worked and lived together as a team. Their cooperative union made life easier. When children came into the picture, the couple

On September 29th, I did a talk show about arranged marriages. For some reason, it sparked controversy. A couple of men and most women were upset about being forced to marry someone they didn’t love.

Rape is a horrible crime. It seems most believe perpetrators of the crime should be punished. However, when a man is falsely accused of rape, his entire life can be ruined.

In the past, marriages were arranged. Those arranged marriages allowed families to choose a partner that could best protect and grow the family’s wealth. Instead of your son or daughter choosing the person they loved most, parents sought the most suitable person based family compatibility and assets. That allowed each generation to become wealthier. For example, a family with a substantial amount of

These ladies had never been married, no children and no prospect for a husband. When asked, they said they wanted marriage and children. So they traveled around the US to

The general consensus about WHY people cheat is that there’s a problem with either the cheater – or the relationship. Often we assume cheaters have a history/pathology, or at best a form of immaturity that pushes them into infidelity. We assume the primary relationship is flawed in some significant way that creates a “need” for external sex and intimacy. Either way, we tend to view infidelity as

What is a partnership? While there are many definitions, including a business partnership, I will take one from Merriam-Webster. It says “a relationship resembling a legal partnership and usually involving close cooperation between having specified and joint rights and responsibilities”. It also says “an arrangement in which people engage in an activity or business with one another or share something with each other”. In other words, partnership requires a

When people think of marriage, they think of a man first proposing to a woman. However, the question that is rarely asked is: why did he choose that woman? In the US, there are more women than men.

Is cheating ever justified? If you listen to the cheater, they will attempt to present a full proof case for why they cheated. Yet, for some reason, the infidelity was preceded by lies and deception. If the case was full proof, why would you need to lie?

Wednesday, February 27, 2019
For decades, women have chanted: All Men Cheat! When the self fulfilling prophesy comes true, those women become angry and disappointed with men. Why? If you really believe your man will cheat, why not allow him to have a second woman? That way you can mitigate the chances of him sleeping around recklessly.
Besides, there is an age-old debate about monogamy amongst humans. Is monogamy a natural part of human existence? If so, why is it commonly believed that men will cheat? If it’s not, why attempt to force it? Has nature designed men to sleep with many women in order to perpetuate the species? Or is sexual compatibility at the root of the problem?
In previous shows, we uncovered that men and women do not have open and honest conversations about sex and relationships. In fact, most, if not all, don’t listen to one another. If this is the case, perhaps the answer to why men cheat lies in the communication gaps between men and women.
On this show, we are going to strip the topic of sex down to naked truths, even if they are ugly. With those truths, we are going to make the case for why men should be allowed to have a second woman. If a second woman is not the answer, we will uncover what men have been asking for and not receiving in love.
