Bride Among Four Dead As Wedding Car Plunges Into Ravine and is ‘Swept Away’

Bride Among Four Dead As Wedding Car Plunges Into Ravine and is ‘Swept Away’

I am sorry these people are dead – truly – but part of me marvels when I see stories like this one (and I’ve got more like this one on this blog).

Stories of people who die within hours or days of just having gotten married.

I am a conservative, so I’ve nothing against “the nuclear family” and marriage and so on, but I disagree to the insane degree to which other conservative push those concepts.

They will often publish bogus studies claiming that married persons are happier or healthier than singles (again, such studies have been proven false before), but they never account for the news items or situations where two people marry, and one of them turns out – is found out after marriage by the other spouse – to be abusive, a pedophile, or where one or both die in a car accident or whatever within moments of marriage.

The older I get, I’m learning that a lot of life is not actually what happens to you (or what does not happen), but how you view the things that happen to you (or well, the things that don’t happen to you – if you’re wanting something to happen but it never does).

AT least four people including a bride have been killed after a car carrying a wedding party skidded off a road and plunged into a steep rocky ravine.

Emergency services rushed to the scene in Pakistan after the vehicle, which had nine people inside including three kids and a baby, crashed before being swept away by a river, it’s reported.

It’s understood the driver lost control of the car while turning a sharp bend on the Muzaffarabad-Neelam Valley road before plummeting into a deep gorge.

Married Couple Takes DNA Test, Discovers They’re First Cousins, Confront Family Who Kept It A Secret

Another time you’re glad to be never-married and celibate. No chance of this happening.

Excerpts:

Speaking of which, a Redditor recently shared a story of how he ended up figuring the latter out by simply gifting his wife a DNA test kit.

… While DNA tests are great gifts, they can turn on you and point out that the person you married is actually a cousin or something

Reddit user u/PM_MeMyPassword recently went to the TIFU, or Today I Effed Up, subreddit with quite a unique story.

So, both OP and his wife grew up in a small town in the South. Both of their families have been living there for quite some time now.

Both of these lovely individuals also had previous marriages and 3 kids each from those marriages, and there are no plans for any more now that they are together.

Last year OP got his wife an Ancestry DNA kit as a gift. Apparently, she wanted to know more about her European roots, and her sister decided to do the same.

In this case, that is exactly what happened to this man, leading to his now-viral post on the TIFU subreddit

This one hits close to home because it happened between my parents. We had a family “friend” who was a lawyer and my parents agreed that he would be the lawyer for both of them as a mediator.

So, as the assets were being divided my dad got absolutely slammed.

Russian ‘Sex Coach’ Was Repeatedly Stabbed in the Head by Her ‘Jealous’ Husband

Russian ‘Sex Coach’ Was Repeatedly Stabbed in the Head by Her ‘Jealous’ Husband

As I was saying on Twitter, the older I get, and I continue to see such news stories as the one in this post, the happier I feel to be single and celibate.

I cannot believe as I grew up that the evangelical / Baptist / Protestant culture brainwashed everyone to think that being single is “second best” and being chaste over the age of 25 was “impossible” or somehow “not worth it.”

I see so many people who, as teens or adults, are not happy from having sex outside of marriage, or they get married, and they have a sexless marriage, or their spouse abuses them.

You’re ultimately not going to find healing and hope in another person (i.e., a spouse).

This news story should be another sign to Christians who keep peddling false notions about singleness, dating, sex, and marriage that sexual purity is not for singles only.

You have married people out there who think it’s acceptable to work as “sex coaches,” or open their own “only fans” accounts, or to “wife swap” (see links under “Related” below for examples).

Churches need to remind MARRIED people that sexual purity is for them as well. It’s not single adults that are falling into sexual temptations left and right, it’s married couples who are.

I don’t approve of this married woman’s “sex coach” occupation, but no, I sure don’t defend the husband stabbing her to death over it, or for whatever reasons he had.

Note that these are two married people who had a couple of children together. The pro-marriage and pro-have-children Christians and conservatives are wrong to teach (as they do) that getting married and having children will always (or even usually) make people more godly, loving, mature and ethical.

I have many more examples on my blog here that demonstrate that marriage and/or parenthood do NOT make people more ethical, responsible, godly, loving, mature, etc.

A Russian ‘psychologist and sex coach’ was repeatedly stabbed in the head by her husband who then threw her body from a 130ft-high building.

Rustam Mursalov, 24, confessed to killing his wife Alexandra Mursalova, 25, out of ‘jealousy’, according to reports.

Mursalova, who had two children with personal trainer Mursalov, worked with wealthy clients in St Petersburg.

Dumbfounded by Stepson’s ‘Humiliating’ Father’s Day Gift: ‘I Almost Cried’

Dumbfounded by Stepson’s ‘Humiliating’ Father’s Day Gift: ‘I Almost Cried’

Yet another example of why, if you get married, it’s best to NOT marry someone who has children from a previous relationship.

The stepson does sound rather thoughtless – but – the stepfather who wrote in asking for advice sounds as though he could be very sensitive.

Depending on how you look at it, it’s possible the stepfather is a little on the sensitive side, and the kid is not intending to be cruel. If someone in my family did this to my Dad when I was a kid, like myself or one of my siblings – as a kind of joke – I think my Dad either would’ve found such a gesture either really weird or he would’ve found it funny.

If the stepson didn’t mean to be malicious about this, I’d give the kid a break. But if he that giving a stinky sock to his stepdad would in any way upset his stepdad, this is not okay.

Again, this sort of thing makes you sit there and feel fortunate you never had a kid, and definitely makes you think, “I don’t want to date anyone who already has a kid.”

A man can’t seem to connect with his 16-year-old stepson, and it’s become truly upsetting.

He explained the situation on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum. Despite him putting in the effort, his stepson doesn’t seem interested in bonding. Whenever the teenager does give him attention, it usually turns out to be a prank. But on Father’s Day, the Reddit poster believes his stepson took the jokes too far.

Divorce Doesn’t Need To Be This Hard by Olga Khazan

Divorce Doesn’t Need To Be This Hard by Olga Khazan

After seeing this article, I’m kind of glad I never did get married – this article brings up the women trapped in abusive marriages, and some of these abused women said they wish they had never married to start with. That’s pretty sobering and goes against all the “rah rah marriage is great” propaganda that many conservatives and Christians are always spewing.

Excerpts:

In a recent study, Greiner and a team of researchers examined low-income people’s attempts to get simple, uncontested divorces in Philadelphia over a period of five years.

Working with the Philadelphia Volunteers for the Indigent Program, a legal-aid organization, the researchers randomly assigned 74 divorce-seekers, out of 311, into a pool of people they would attempt to match with attorneys.

There’s little point in being married if the guy you married is running around having sex with other dudes and having sex with those dudes in movies. If this is marriage, life long singleness doesn’t look so bad.

WHILE most of us use Facebook to gloat about our fancy vaycays and watch videos of cute puppies, the social media platform has recently become host to one of the harshest pastimes around — wedding shaming.

Groups of people huddle together in private digital dungeons to blast, roast and tear apart other people’s special days in the name of fun — and it’s absolutely brutal.

You can critique dresses, decorations and of course, dramatic brides who are kindly dubbed “bridezillas”.

Polish Man Charged Men £4 to Rape Wife He Fed Semen Sandwiches

Polish Man Charged Men £4 to Rape Wife He Fed Semen Sandwiches

This news story is beyond repulsive.

  1. Stories like this one make me feel glad I never married.
  2. Marriage does not make people more godly, mature, compassionate, or responsible, contrary to secular and Christian conservative opinion.

Some Christian gender complementarians would say that this woman should’ve stayed married to this abusive pervert no matter what. And complementarians have the audacity to say that their biblical interpretation is respectful of women? No, it’s not.
