First of all, before going into my topic, let me share with you something that horrified me because I simply need to get it out of my system. I started to watch ‘60 minutes’ on TV last night, because I was horrified at what I was hearing.
Apparently, there was this boyfriend or husband, who kills his wife/girlfriend in a fit of rage, and then he blames the victim -who is dead- to wiggle out of justice. That is called the Provocation Defense.
By saying that his wife/girlfriend was looking for it by nagging or cheating etc., that is all the excuse he needs to get his murder charge reduced to manslaughter and to receive a much lighter sentence instead of spending the rest of his life in prison. One guy who killed his wife got out of prison after only 3 years and eleven months! I can’t begin to understand how a jury can even think it is right. Nothing a woman does could possibly justify these abuses!
Let me tell you why I will not be flying with your company again and why I will no longer recommend you to my friends and family. I have actually written to you once already about this matter to make a formal complaint but have yet to hear anything from you. So I will just assume that you are too busy dealing with the people that probably spend way more money than me, or are simply backed up with many more complaints.
Some time ago, I wrote what turned out to be quite a popular post. It was a compilation of funny relationship quotes, often referring about marriage in a chauvinistic or feminist way. Personalities such as Socrates or Groucho Marx have discussed marriage from a funny –yet often quite cruel- point of view. But the four or five famous phrases I got were just the tip of the iceberg! I recall many people –friends of mine for the most- sending me other quotes and asking me about my thoughts on them. So to you all here is a sequel of marriage & relationship quotes. Enjoy!
