Marriage

Marriage is really a long behavioral sciences experiment. The object of the experiment is to establish the fact that men are selfish. That's all there is to it - A science experiment with a predefined conclusion. Men are found guilty of selfishness for acts that are perfectly normal in a bachelor's world. Suddenly 90% of their actions are determined as selfish. Men are simply an apparatus in this grand science experiment. They are like test tubes, beakers and pipette. While men lie on the lab table staring inanimately. Women perform all kinds of test, confer with each other, do some calculations and record in the observation book; "men are really selfish".

I wonder if this experiment ever received the IRB approval :)

(This applies to 'I' too as both are approaching their respective marriages imminently)

6 months-1 year from now results of your experiments will get published. don't bother looking them up. "you are selfish" :-)

I'm not selfish. I will give up anything for my wife. Even my ex-wife.

The only way to overcome this image is to carry a 'gooja' and walk behind the wife. Then you can say , you selflessly carried 'filter kaapi' for her, in case she wanted.

"Men are found guilty of selfishness for acts that are perfectly normal in a bachelor's world."

Can you give 2 or 3 instances? Just curious...

i am absolutely ok with idea of branding a man selfish. no doubt they are. while a women's life undergoes a seachange, like from being the one pampered to the one pampering, man still remains the same enjoying all the benefits he had in his bachelor hood. this applies to both working and non working women. women loses her freedom after marriage and a man most probably does not understand this. so MEN ARE SELFISH. :)

Sowmya,

as anush below you said. If contents of guja dont meet specifications, then it is alleged that target consumer of the guja contents is the 'guja carrier' and so guja carrier = selfish.

anush,

danks ba
