Never marry a cat lover

I've got this friend, an Aussie guy, whose got a big problem. He got married to a real $itchy woman.

I was suppose to be his best man but I was busy in Singapore at the time. But even then there were problems.

What's her problem?

Unrealistic expectations. And a rather selfish attitude to life. On top of that pride. She doesn't like being contradicted. To make matters worse, she's not logicalso she won't listen to reason.

In short, my friend is screwed.

Both of them are working and both earn a decent wage.

He just hit 30 and he's already paid off the mortgage on his house and his car. Not something which a lot of men can boast about.

He's frugal and saves - and he's an amazing shopper, getting great bargains. If you ever want to get a great deal- ask his advice.

She, on the other hand, seems to be spendthrift. And she refuses to pay for anything - food/restaurant bills/  air tickets/ and insists that they go out everyday and pay for all the bills. I don't think she's cooked a single meal for that poor bastard. She didn't $ contribute anything to the wedding either nor to the honeymoon.

She insists that they go to restaurants and then orders a boat load of food and gets sick when she tries to eat it all. Bizarre.

She also claims its his Christian given duty to provide financially- (whilst she sits on her backside). Somehow she missed the part about Proverbs 31.

Meanwhile, she's trying to entice him to buy a shophouse in Taiwan- and put the ownership in her parents' name. The contract is in Mandarin which he can't read. Thats a big WTF?

And she doesn't let go. She was bitching to me about how "tight-arse" her husband was in front of him. Wtf? She doesn't show him any respect. Just because your husband doesn't want to go out every single day to eat - doesn't make him stingy.

This is terrible. A husband and wife are a team - a partnership - they should work together. The Bible doesn't say anywhere that one member has to be the sole bread-winner. But it does say that the husband and wife are to work togther and cooperate. And it does say that the husband is suppose to be the spiritual leader of the household. But for one side, to twist the scripture, to their advantage like she does, is really fubar.

  1. 1 Corinthians 7:4
    The wife's body does not belong to her alone but to her husband. In the same way, the husband's body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife.
    1 Corinthians 7:3-5 (in Context) 1 Corinthians 7 (Whole Chapter)
  2. Ephesians 5:23
    For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.
    Ephesians 5:22-24 (in Context) Ephesians 5 (Whole Chapter)
I'm really worried for him.

(I've limited the readership for this blog entry to only my Singaporean side - as I don't wish to embarass my friend whose living in Australia)

oh and she's a cat lover; owning three cats. at least she's pay the money for the cat food.
