You have never married nor had kids. Thanks for your service. Wth are you posting here for? You don’t have a marriage or insight into marriage. You seem like an incel tbh
I only know marriage by having observed married people in my extended family. My mother and father would have been a perfect model for a married couple and parents of two children, one being myself. I know what a nuclear family should be having been raised in one myself. A Catholic priest can counsel married couples and he is not married due to a vow of chastity.

Overpopulation solution: fertile married couples should stop making more than two babies; infertile couples with means should unselfishly adopt children needing homes. Single people of means can adopt children in need of homes as well. It is prefered still to have at least one father figure and one mother figure in the home where underage children are raised. A mother figure can be a live-in governess, housekeeper or nanny. A father figure could be a live-in grandfather or uncle.

About accents around America: those living in Southern states tend to have a disdain for Americans raised outside of Southern states. The American People would have much greater moral and unity as a nation if these various local cultures and accents were to be dissolved. All Americans should be taught the Websterian American language in schools. Culture in the South stemming from the days of the Confederacy and plantation slavery should be cleansed from the South altogether by federal law. I am a Unionist. Yankee culture is proper American culture. Twangy hillbilly accents are abrasive to my Yankee ears.

The American Way means genuine American culture: wearing turbans and talking with a middle eastern accent is totally outside the realm of this; baseball and gridiron football is the American way; strictly following the Constitution including strictly respecting and observing the right to keep and bear arms is the American way; apple pie and hot dogs is the American way; having a Boy Scouts organization that only admits male members is the American way; dove hunting is the American way; fly fishing is the American way; playing cowboys and Indians is the American way; Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox is the American way; Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone is the American way; Native American lore is the American way

I never said I was married. Frankly, I never have been married. No questions there.
Being married is not a core requirement to be a member here. I do have a vested interest
in American families and values, however.
This was my favorite right here.

You're either a troll or a douchebag.

I don't think you're a troll

My dad once paddled me with a long, plastic toy gun I had. I hated that toy thereafter. My brother and I were punished by my mother too. Hair brushes, wooden spoons and bamboo switches. My mother would thrash us wildly and without aim. It was like a million bee stings all at once all over our bodies. My mother, in 1973, angrily told me to write neatly while signing a birthday card to my grandmother or she would otherwise knock my head right off my body. At age 9, my parents and grandparents thought my handwriting stunk, which it really did. Boys were supposed to have crappy handwriting according to my school's culture. I wish I had a typewriter or PC back in elementary school to do neat school work. I started using a manual typewriter in the 8th grade to do neater work.

Catholic schools used to punish naughty children harshly. Telling lies meant having the devil paddled out of you.

I was shocked to find out there were women drill sergeants in the Army in 1988. I could never have imagined this on my own. Army recruiting materials in magazines and Hollywood films only portrayed men in Smokey Bear hats. Having watched MASH on TV, I knew there were women nurses in the service. A younger man I knew back in my home town had already been in the National Guard shortly before I signed up for Army Reserves and told me that I might get a woman in a "hat". This was about two weeks before my shipping out to basic. I signed up and went one 1-month DEP. He did basic/AIT at Jackson as well. I would have never have dreamt that there would be woman drills in a million years. I did 6 months reserve time following AIT and signed up for active duty in the fall of 1989. There were a few young women officers that were kind of cute, though, at permanet party. At permanent party, all the NCO's in the motor sections at various units and duty stations I was in were male. I was a motor pool mechanic, 63B, and there never was a female NCO in the motor section ever.

I've always hated the notion of having women screaming and growling at grown men and telling them what to do. It is contrary to human nature. A woman's authority is over children and other women, not grown men. I do believe what the Holy Bible says about this.

Aside from the drill sergeants in Australian bush hats, I did not have much problem with women in higher ranks. My platoons, squads and sections were always lead by male NCO's from permanent party on up. There were woman privates and specialists in various army motor pools but never a single female NCO or officer there.
You sound like a male chauvinist. Women aren't allowed to tell a man what to do? LOL. Tell my female CEO that.

No offense, but you come across as somewhat ignorant on certain aspects.
So, just in case that you don't know, English comes from England. That's their language, passed on to us. And for your knowledge not even in England where our mother tongue originated the people from the various part of England speak with the same accent. Imagine in a much, much, bigger county like ours, where distance was and still is a much bigger divider for people that belong to so many races and culture.

Take Latin for example, it went from archaic to classic, to Vulgata, to medieval, ecclesiastical, etc., Same thing with English speaking nations, the remnants of it's empire.

Have you ever listened an English speaking person from Australia, Belize, Canada, New Zealand? Do they all sound the same? Or should they all sound the same because they are speaking English?

Ignorant or not, I personally find many Southerners or people with Southern drawls offensive. Many raise their voices. They are often patronizing toward us Yankees like we don't know crap from Shinola. The South is a hate culture. As a person raised and educated in the San Francisco Bay Area in California, I find the people of New England, especially New Hampshire, much more pleasing to listen to while they are speaking. This is northern Yankee culture. I love Yankee culture. My personality does not mesh with the South.
