“Lonely spinsters” could learn from Mike Pence’s marriage

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Vice President Mike Pence hates women, is a sex offender waiting for a place to happen and is at least as bad as the Taliban. At least that’s what the Liberal internet outrage warriors would have you believe. 

A Washington Post article mentioned that Pence won't dine alone with women besides his wife, and will not attend any event where alcohol is served unless Karen, his wife of 32 years, is there with him.

What kind of monster refuses to go on dates with women who aren’t his wife?

Wait. What? This is crazy.

Watch to see the message I have for the handwringing critics of Mike Pence.

Liberals are having a tough time understanding how Pence considers his wife’s feelings in all that he does. Loving, normal, long term relationships built on mutual respect are completely foreign to them.

Look at their side:

They think the Clintons' marriage, rife with sexual assault allegations and harassment, is some sort of fairy tale. That the Weiners' relationship and its underage sexting scandal and bulging crotch shots is a testament to the power of love to overcome any obstacle. They call the Kennedys' relationships, complete with drunken trysts with a drug addled starlet, “Camelot.”

No wonder liberals think Mike Pence is some sort of weirdo.

God Bless Mike Pence!

May our youth look to his example of leading a good and respectful life. Many young married couples would do well to heed his example.

Andrew Stephenson what makes you think the left gets married smartly? STD rates have risen since we got more progressive and so have teen unwanted pregnancies. I would love to see where you get your stats from , as every progressive i know is not in a happy relationship. I call BS on your assumption. And left wing bastions such as LA and Hollywood are shitholes in this regard and you know it. "

Teenage pregnancy and STD rates are at an all time low (and are highest in US states without “progressive” sex ed policies).

Every progressive I know is in a happy relationship. Seriously… the statistics are quite clear. Well educated, urban individuals (by far the most “progressive”) have the stablest relationships.

Jack and Andrew, are you married to each other? Or are you seriously trying to convince us that you have wives who wouldn’t blink an eye at you going out for dinner with a female friend? "

I’m not married (it’s a pointless tradition, though we’re ‘common law’ at this point) but my partner has no qualms about what I do. Nor I, her. We are both independent individuals who happen to be cohabitating best friends. Jealousy achieves nothing. It’s a great way to live, you should try it.

Peter Netterville,

Yes, because you have nothing.

Are you married? Stop avoiding the question.

Jack, I have already given you the answer, but you refuse to accept what I have said.

This conversation is over.

Peter Netterville,

I know you have nothing. If you had something, you would love to take me down with it.

Are you married? Stop avoiding the question.

You have no idea what I have or do not have, can or cannot do, know or do not know.

All you do is throw out insults and derogatory comments. Not worth my time.

Andrew Stephenson you have to admit that comparing Pence’s marriage to rape culture is pretty damn ignorant.

Peter Netterville,

No, you have got nothing.

I suspect you are not married either, which means that what you have to say on the matter means less than nothing.

Bugs Potter,

That’s exactly what I am telling you.

My wife and I have complete trust in each other and don’t have any insecurities or feelings of jealously like you and your husband have.

We love each other, we are best friends and that’s all there is to it.

When is the Rebel going to crowd fund Sheila a makeover or is she playing for the other team now?

Bugs Potter asked Jack and Andrew, “Or are you seriously trying to convince us that you have wives who wouldn’t blink an eye at you going out for dinner with a female friend?”

Why yes, Bugs, yes sir!

Don’tcha know that Jack’s and Andrew’s marriages are the perfection that all married couples on the planet throughout the millennia have been striving for, and Jack and Andrew have achieved the perfect marriage where no one else could.

Sigh! You’re my hero, Jack!
commented 2017-03-31 19:24:20 -0400
Well done, Sheila. Being married is a complicated dance of respect and conscious care and concern between the two individuals. I applaud Mr. Pence and his wife for respecting their decision to stay together with that much loving care for each other. Same for you, it’s that love for your spouse’s company, especially in a social setting, that makes such a strong glue for your marriage.

Jack Carter said, "So ya, you have got nothing. "

I knew you would come up with an asinine comment like that.

No, Jack, I just am not really interested in getting into Biblical theology right at the moment.

That was excellent Sheila. Libs are a sad crazy bunch, seems the only joy in their lives is to criticize any one who is happy and secure in their lives. What a sick example they are passing on to the youth of today.
commented 2017-03-31 17:49:13 -0400
@Jack Carter…of course the best possible form of trust to bond a politician’s marriage together is that of Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin who just have to make it work so that the NYPD and the FBI will not be able to make them testify against each other…..:-)

Jack and Andrew, are you married to each other? Or are you seriously trying to convince us that you have wives who wouldn’t blink an eye at you going out for dinner with a female friend?

My husband would have serious concerns if I told him I had a dinner date with some guy, and vice versa. Our unspoken, common sense, rule is to try to avoid those kinds of situations. (And we are atheists — this has nothing to do with religion — it has to do with men and women who spend time alone together often ending up doing other things…)

Let’s get real.

As for the Muslim analogy — nice try, but are you really able to convince yourselves that a culture that forbids men and women IN GROUPS from sitting next to each other, and often forces women to wear body (and sometimes face) concealing garb to control men’s sexual desires is an analogous situation to not going on a dinner date when you’re married.

Come on.

A newlywed couple had only been married for two weeks. The husband, although very much in love, couldn’t wait to go out on the town and party with his old buddies.

So, he said to his new wife, “Honey, I’ll be right back.”

“Where are you going, coochy cooh?” asked the wife.

“I’m going to the bar, pretty face. I’m going out to have a beer.”

The wife said, “You want a beer, my love?” She opened the door to the refrigerator and showed him 25 different beer brands from 12 different countries.

The husband didn’t know what to do, and the only thing that he could think of saying was, “Yes, lollipop, but at the bar, you know…they have frozen glasses.”

He didn’t get to finish the sentence because the wife interrupted him by saying, “You want a frozen glass, puppy face?” She took a huge beer mug out of the freezer, so frozen that she was getting chills just holding it.

The husband, looking a bit pale, said, “Yes, tootsie roll, but at the bar they have those hors d’oeuvres that are really delicious. I won’t be long. I’ll be right back. I promise.”

You want hors d’oeuvres, poochi pooh?" She opened the oven and took out 5 dishes of different hors d’oeuvres: chicken wings, pigs in blankets, mushroom caps, pork strips, etc.

“But sweetie pie, at the bar… you know, there’s swearing, dirty words and all that.”

“You want dirty words, dickhead? Drink your fuckin’ beer in your goddamn frozen mug and eat your motherfuckin’ snacks because you are married now and you aren’t fuckin’ going anywhere! Got it, asshole?”

And they lived happily ever after.

Isn’t that a sweet marriage story?

Andrew Stephenson,

Right again.

Peter who debates endlessly on here – now can’t be bothered this time around, because there is nothing that he could say to debate the points that we have brought up. In other words, he is out of moves.

Peter Netterville,

So ya, you have got nothing.

A happy marriage that has a solid foundation in trust with zero insecurities is quite simple to understand.

Are you married or are you still a single dude who doesn’t really know what he is talking about when it comes to marriage?
commented 2017-03-31 16:54:49 -0400
Andrew, I am not going to get into the same conversation with you as I was with Jack.

Peter Netterville:

“The error in your logic is in assuming because Pence will not have a dinner and/or drink in private with another woman is an insecurity on his part. It is actually a declaration of his devotion to his wife, not an admission of some perceived insecurity. "

It does sound insecure. If your relationship is robust and “devoted” then you should be comfortable with your partner meeting with others and not worrying about what may happen. (if he’s truly devoted, it won’t). This is particularly true in the case of a politician, for whom unchaperoned meetings are a frequent occurrence and, in fact, part of the job.

I think you could argue that it’s similar to the Muslim prohibition on unrelated men and women interacting, unchaperoned, because the possibility of wandering eyes exists. And, we all know how social conservatives like THAT.

“A happy marriage that has a solid foundation in trust with zero insecurities. "

That is not a sentence.
“Can you show me the passages in the Bible that talk about not having innocent interactions with women that are not your wife. "

I am not really interested in getting into Biblical theology right at the moment.
commented 2017-03-31 14:49:29 -0400
Peter,

LOL.

Can you show me the passages in the Bible that talk about not having innocent interactions with women that are not your wife.

My marriage should be the model for all people in theory for the exact reason I have already stated:

A happy marriage that has a solid foundation in trust with zero insecurities. If one has such a marriage like mine, they don’t need to clarify anything further or have such rules – either verbally state or written in any capacity to keep one in check. The devotion is already there without all that other fine print so to speak bullshit.

No, it would be insecurity on her part and he is just appeasing her.

What’s your marriage like Peter? Are you married?

Jack said, "I am not attacking him. I just don’t think it’s needed in a happy marriage that has a solid foundation in trust with zero insecurities. "

And your marriage should be the model for all people because … why?

The error in your logic is in assuming because Pence will not have a dinner and/or drink in private with another woman is an insecurity on his part. It is actually a declaration of his devotion to his wife, not an admission of some perceived insecurity.

And it is too bad you cannot understand that your model of a marriage is not the foundation upon which all [emotionally?] [socially?] [maritally?] “secure” people have based their marriage.

Pence bases his marriage off of the principles taught in the Bible … a far superior foundation than the model of your marriage.

Peter Netterville,

I am not attacking him. I just don’t think it’s needed in a happy marriage that has a solid foundation in trust with zero insecurities. That’s exactly what I have in my marriage.

“I wouldn’t do that” only applies to I wouldn’t cheat on my wife. I will get into an elevator with another woman or have dinner or drinks with another women in the same innocent capacity that you applied to Pence.

My wife wouldn’t be sitting at home all worried that I am cheating on her – she will be watching TV or whatever confidently knowing that she can trust her husband to the ends of the Earth.

Great post and completely reasonable, which is the exact reason why the conservatives here don’t get it.

This attack
If two people are married they pay more taxes. Incomes are combined (thanks Turdo ending income splitting) for married people. Two single people living together have no such extra tax.
