    To be honest, he does have a point.. People shouldn`t let themselves go just because they get married or into a committed relationship. But the same goes for men and women..

    Why is this stupid? I agree. He did not say it`s the Woman`s fault. The joke he told was a woman but he said Men and Women have to cultivate romance.

    You have to try to be appealing to your mate. No, we are not all going to look like a hot 15 year...errr 25 year old but do something.

    If you gained 50 pounds you can`t expect your mate to find you all that exciting... unless they were chubby chasers before you met them. Take care of yourself, don`t double in size and say "he should love me anyway"... he will emotionally but physically You are the reason he`s downloading porn!

    I agree with the 1st statement and we are 20 years and counting. AND I can still fit into my wedding dress!!!!

    Okay, I was the exact same size until age 45, then manopause hit and I gained 8-10 pounds {it varies}. But I`m close to where I was! My hairline is nowhere near where it was but not much I can do about that!

    I think unkempt PEOPLE are a major factor, actually. Just look at how some people let themselves go after marriage. Obesity, you know what i`m talking about.

    It`s not just the unkempt physical part. When you take for granted your partner is there, and don`t do anything to make them want to be there, well that`s when problems start.

    It might be just being appreciative of some effort they made. Or not shooting them down publicly. Try building your spouse up instead of dragging them down. Then they`ll treat YOU better and everything`s groovy.

    Maybe because much of what he says is true? It would serve you right if your wife gained 100 lbs. and stopped bathing.

    How offensive is this. Horrid old man. After all- women and not human and have to play by different rules. Husbands- get fat and vile, you only keep that wife to tend to your needs after all.... you don`t shell out for a whale.
    How about this- get married if you must, you bothwork, you share the bills and are equal partners in everything?? Hmm? Marriage seems to be some kind of slave contract in some peoples minds...

    Gerry101. your last post is on the money. i know my gal won`t get better looking with age, and neither will I, but it the effort that counts, the fact that i will spend 5 min listening to her when she comes home from work becuase that`s important to her, That she gives me a hug when i come home becuase thats important to me. physical beauty might fade, but in the mean time you have a chance to build up beautiful memories and a life and that will make her/him beautiful to look at.

    And like i said last time this video was posted. that old fart has got a point, and he does say men and women need to keep the romance alive. I will cut my toenails, and wash my hands. shower if i`ve been sweating like a hog, make sure my beard doesnt get to that point where she start to get beardrash i other words i will make an effort not to be to unpleasant to look at, and i expect the same from the woman in my life, i`m not lookin for Helen of troy, but tidy up your hair, keep your gut in check like i do with mine and shave you legs so i don`t feel i`m sleeping with gerry FFS :P

    I hate to gree with anything this crackpot says, but he makes a good point. I`m divorced and one of the factors that led up to it was that she just totally let her self go. She would shower every third day, shave her legs maybe once every two weeks, she stopped wearing makeup AND deodorant. Then, she had the nerve to get mad when I didn`t want to be intimate.
    I`m no Adonis, but I did take time to shower and shave every day, keep my hair and nails trimmed, and make an effort not to be stinky. I never expected her to look like anything like a magazine cover model, but she should have made some kind of effort to not look like a hobo.

    Well I can actually sort of agree with this. wtf.
    Though If a man lets himself go, there is no reason the wife shouldn`t as well.
    If only one partner lets themselves go while the other one still keeps themselves tidy and trim then they ought to put a little more effort into themselves.
    Dress everyday like you might see the love of your life. Even after you`ve found them.

    HA! Not wanting to make this a War of the Sexes, but, I notice all the men agree with this, generally. We`ve agreed that people have to maintain romance, not just fall apart - "Work" at it. While the ony 2 women who sounded in think he`s full of it.

    Well ladies the men have voiced their opinion here. This is what men really think. You go ahead and do it your way but don`t claim being a victim later, you have been warned how men think and feel on this topic.

    This is very much the modern feminazi mentaility that young girls are taught. If a man expects anything from a woman he`s being chauvinistic and opressive while simultaneously expecting him to meet all her needs as "an equal". It`s all part of the made-up "War On Women".

    Ladies, if your man doesn`t give you the attention you need dump him. But don`t say it`s not fair that it can happen to you, too.

    Thing is though- it should be an equal thing. I am much the same to look at now as I was at 20- older obviously, but same shape and size, I am more active now than ever. I look around at the men I know of my age, all but TWO have some sort of beer gut, man boobs abound, bad grooming, terrible clothes are the norm. the women are possibly not the same shape they were- and some are disgustingly fat and saggy- but at least half are still well groomed, nice hair, fairly fit and fashionable. women judge others- and themselves by harsh standards wheras most men just give up caring at 40.

    I don`t agree with him. I feel he has no right to judge anyone. He`s a loud mouth billionaire who owns diamond mines in South Africa. Employs slave labor, thinks God is his right hand man, fills the air waves with bigoted self rightest crap and sucks money out of people for his godlike TV pulpit. His days are coming to an end.

    Ladies when you make yourself look good for a date, that`s pretty much advertising yourself.

    If you don`t keep up those good looks, that`s pretty much like bait and switch, or false advertising. You may call that shallow, but if your hubby was a hunk and he`s let himself go, then he`s done the same thing to you.

    Can`t fault Pat for saying the brutal truth here.

    maddock, "Thing is though- it should be an equal thing."
    It is. Pat R said "women AND men need to maintain the romance" so it is equal. I agree, he can`t take you for granted either.

    But it is easier for women to slip. You do so much more for your appearance, spend so much more time. So when you let it go it`s a much more dramatic change. Men, we shower and shave and we`re done. Weight is the only big change we can make.

    Sometimes I wish I were born in the 1940s. The good ol days where men where men and women acted like women. With this younger generation it seems like the boys are effeminate and the girls are everything but ladylike. I guess I`m an old man in a handsome 30yr old body.

    Ok- men- Stop right now. Are you over 35- do you have a flat stomach ? Is your hair styled or is your balding pate cropped? Do your clothes have a fresh crispness which denotes being looked after. are your hands clean, nails clipped and no ragged cuticles, shoes clean? Deodorant effective but not overpowering? Underpants and socks clean on this morning? Can you jog gently to the end of your road without going purple? If you answer no to any of the above you are a fine one to talk.

    KitFox: I think it`s a bit sexist that women demand that their man meet their every need, but when I guy asks for something like this from his woman, he`s now instantly a chauvinist pig.

    Sorry ladies, but that`s not `equal` in any sense of the word.

    Crakr, I hear you. My boy is engaged to a very nice girl...as girls go nowadays. But she`s been brought up in a bad time, hasn`t the first clue how to take care of a man. His needs are a demand on her but hers MUST be met. He works full time and goes to school at night to be a lawyer, she works maybe up to 35 a week but still expects him to do a full 50% of the chores around the house. She is a nice girl, it`s just the crap society crams down their throat these days.

    It`s unfortunate for the current crop of young women. They haven`t learned give & take in a relationship. They are doomed to be unsatisfied with any relationship they get.

    I`m Christian and I gotta , that`s absurd! I`ve seen some men, who have a Dime at home, a wife or girlfriend who looks good and does for her man, and they`re still cheating. A cheat will cheat and it doesn`t matter how romantic/good looking/etc the woman is that he has home. some men and some women just want strange. it is sexist either way
