  • "If you want to be happily married, discern women carefully. Being pretty, young, and Christian is not enough. She may be the most beautiful woman that you have ever seen, but turn away if you encounter any of the following:

    1.“I am a strong independent woman.”

    2.“My career comes first.”

    3.“I don’t want to be ‘just a mom.‘”

    4.“I’m not a bra-burning Feminist, but I do think Feminism has been a good thing.” (This is akin to the argument: “Planned Parenthood does some good things so let’s not condemn it.”)

    5.She scorns films that aren’t Bechdel-approved.

    6.She insists on paying her half of the tab.

    7.She looks down on courtesies that you provide, such as opening the door, driving, and paying, as insults.

    8.She advocates government policies that promote sterilization, Planned Parenthood, no-fault divorce, slut-walks, women’s reproductive rights, etc.

    9.Profuse profanity. Every Feminist I have ever met has been generous with profanity. They love dropping the f-bomb, in particular. I suspect Feminists believe that this is “empowering” or makes them “like one of the guys.” In reality, it’s ugly and degrading.

    10.She shows annoyance around babies or small children.

    11.She makes fun of her father by mocking him.

    12.She frequently uses the word “patriarchy,” but she is not referring to the bishops of Antioch, Moscow, or Constantinople.

    If anyone says that true and natural water is not necessary for baptism and thus twists into some metaphor the words of our Lord Jesus Christ" Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit" (Jn 3:5) let him be anathema.

    Can someone tell me what in the world this means?

    7.She looks down on courtesies that you provide, such as opening the door, driving, and paying, as insults.

    Growing up in the 1960s and 1970s, I remember this kind of attitude.  I'm a young teenage boy and I open a door for a woman and rather than saying thank you or even just ignoring me, she would say, "Do you think my arm is broken?  I can open the door myself," or something along those lines.  This was a prevalent attitude.  So much so, that I pretty much stopped opening doors for any woman except my own mother who was always appreciative.

    Today, most women I encounter will smile and say thank you, though there are a few who seem to be annoyed.  Most of the women I find who are visibly hostile are my age and a little older, that is, they are the women who were in their 20s during the 1960s and 1970s.

    But this one has taken over the petty complaints about opening a door.  I detest hearing women curse and it is certainly not limited to just a few.  Women seem to curse worse than a sailor for petty annoyances.  Many don't even have to get outright angry before cursing worse than most men.  I would stay far away from any woman uses such language routinely.

    It's some stupid test to see if works of fiction write women characters well. Basically, if two women in the movie/book talk to one another without a man present, about something other than a man, it passes. The entire thing is really stupid.
    Better to illuminate than merely to shine, to deliver to others contemplated truths than merely to contemplate.

  • If a "man" doesn't have a natural aversion or repulsion to the aforementioned warning signs, if he can't see on his own that these are red flags, he is probably already a lost cause.

  • It might be difficult to find that "needle in the haystack" for men seeking a wife, but at least she would stand out from among the crowd.

  • Woman usually to deny they are feminist, although in many ways they hold that dismal mindset. If they accept that tag, that's a the cue to run and keep running. A woman like that hold the usual false values, but they will be there in overwhelming force. Run.

  • Feminists don't like Saint Paul.  A woman may be unwilling to admit that she's a feminist, but her aversion to particular epistles of St. Paul is a clue to how she will behave in the future.  Don't be surprised when you find she enjoys being friendly with "transgender" people and scorns any criticism of homosexuality as reprehensible or judgmental.

  • I have observed another trait of feminists (Catholic or otherwise) is a desire to instruct and form men.  I have female family with this obnoxious trait.

    Don't judge the girl alone. Look at her mother. That will tell you how she'll be as a wife and mother. For example, if the mother has a job not out of dire necessity, consider another. Like mother, like daughter
