Marriage Is A Prison For Women

It seems as though almost everyone has suffered the heart wrenching pain caused by a loved one's betrayal. I know it. I've felt the physical pain a broken heart brings. So why do I do what I do? I don't know why. Not sure I really want to know. I mean, I am a married woman, 14 years now, and for the last three years I have been sleeping with married men that I have met online. I haven't kept track but I assure you that there has been over 100.

Don't judge me. One thing everybody in this world has in common are secrets. We all have them. I've just decided to write about and publish my secrets. Perhaps someone will learn something from my indiscretions. Perhaps, I will.

Who came up with the idea of marriage and why? Obviously religion played a huge part, and I am, by no means, religious in any way so how did I sucked into this "marriage" deal?

History Lesson On Marriage

The first recorded ceremony, uniting a man and a woman dates all the way back to 2350 B.C. in Mesopotamia. Its purpose was to guarantee the man that the child born from his wife was biologically his. Marriage was nothing more than a contract stating what woman a man owned. Over the centuries, as marriage evolved and was embraced by Greeks, Romans and Ancient Hebrews, monogamy was the rule only for women. In order to help the men and their sexual urges, they were allowed to take several wives at once, some even had concubines. It wasn't until 1563 at the Council of Trent, the nature of marriage was written into canon law. This act of the Roman Catholic Church did make the "institution" of marriage a better deal for women. It called for more respect from the men and divorce was forbidden. Women still remained a mans property.

Infidelity, Prostitution, Marriage

Infidelity, prostitution and marriage all started around the same time. That's the first red flag. The laws and rules surrounding the nature of marriage are still changing today. We now have tests that can determine if a child is yours or not, women don't even need men to have babies anymore. Technology has opened a brand new world for us, it's time to weed out the old ideas and invite and embrace new ones.

New Traditions

Women are highly sexual beings. Our connection with our bodies does not begin until we are well into our 30's. Then it's a whole new ball game. Things change, drastically, in the ways in which we see ourselves as women. Our looks change allowing us to see just how sexy and beautiful we really are. Unfortunately, for those women who entered into matrimony before this change now feel stuck, imprisoned in an institution that doesn't want us to change. In my opinion, marriage can be great for some but if you are married to cheater, don't expect it to change. We will always cheat. The CEO's, the doctors, plumbers, mechanics, waiters and waitresses all cheat and if you are saying to yourself, not my husband or not my wife, you should really think again.
