We see how mortal
An unkindness is to them (our women);
If they suffer our departure,
Death's the word.
Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra I, 2
I can just imagine a group of MBAs talking amongst each other about their women, their mistresses, their concubines, and how badly they treat them. Even by their departure the women feel anguish. But still, they come back for more. And who, pray tell, is an MBA in this context, and moreso a worthless one? Surely I'm not referring to those people who pursue higher learning and have those letters after their names. Not at all. I'm revisiting the MBAs who I wrote about many years ago, men who are married but still available...MBA...Married But Available. Naturally there's a twist this time, for that word 'worthless' before the title does add a new dimension.
To be an MBA is bad enough, for to be married to one woman yet have another on the side is surely not conducive to building a meaningful relationship with the wife. Some men are going to scoff at that statement, but almost all wives do not like that arrangement at all. Ironically it usually affects the men too, for there is a saying that you can't serve two masters, lest you love one and hate the other. In this case it's one master and one mistress. The man is usually affected by the whole sordid affair, and may not be aware of how he's changed towards his wife.
To make it worse, he acts as if he's still single, still available, even though he's not. He certainly confuses the mistress who has mixed up moods and attitudes because of his actions.
The worthless MBA, we'll see who they are, right after what these readers had to say about Submit my Ass.
Being submissive as a characteristic of Christian living includes being humble, deferential, cooperative, loyal, and respectful. When Peter spoke the words about wives to be submissive to be their husbands, he also referred to Sarah being submissive to her husband. However, it appears that Sarah was the exception, as there are many examples in the Old Testament of 'holy' women disobeying rules, laws and husbands. Personally and perhaps conveniently, I always believed that a wife should be submissive to her husband only when he has the urge to go out and multiply.
You are so right. Which woman with any self-esteem is going to submit to any man nowadays? Submit my ass!!! You can take your ego and go stuff it, is what I tell any man who wants to subjugate me. Women have come too far in this world to backslide now and live under the rule of thumb of any man. And by the way, mistresses do not submit. No mistress is going to iron a man's clothes or do his laundry. That's what wives are for.
You are a naughty but clever man. Who would have thought that you could have used the word ass in so many contexts and not be offensive. Pardon me while I go outside and move my ass. Heehaw.
There are some men who make a career out of having affairs, even though they are married. They squire women all over town, acting as if they're still single, even though they're not. They are married, but available. Some of these guys are so brazen with their mistresses that their wives are not known, as they are never seen with them. They are smooth and predatory when they hunt women. "But wait, how you putting argument to me... aren't you married?" "Yes baby, but I'm still MBA ... married but available." That being said, there are women who also make a career of only dating men who are married. Then they turn around and say, "I don't know why it's only men who are married seeking me?" Seriously? It's because married men can spot an easy conquest from a mile away, and some women just always give off the pheromones, the smell, the scent, that come hither whiff that says CFM. Some women are always involved with married men, and as one leaves them, they find another.
So they get involved with these married men, then end up being mistresses for their entire adult lives. For most, it's not a bad deal, at least while they're still young, for MBAs tend to treat the other women well. He will pay her bills, buy her nice stuff like jewellery, or a car maybe, and in some instances even an apartment. What an MBA will do for his outside woman, he'd never do for his wife. So all in all, the mistress usually gets the better deal... even for a while. The wife on the other hand, is long suffering as she watches her man slip into the arms of another.
But as in all things, there's always a caveat, a rider, an exception that ...
