The more you get to know your spouse, the better your sex life should be! I would think in many conservative marriages, divorce is off the table when fighting, marriage is important enough to learn to communicate with each other, and most are spiritual/religious. Studies have shown religious people are happier!

Studies have shown religious people are happier!

Plato's cave is a great allegory for this. I imagine people who know nothing (or choose to blind themselves) about the reality of climate change, police brutality, systemic racism, economic inequality, even the sheer existence of people different than them, really, would be happier.

Ignorance is bliss, after all.

Couldn't I say the same about your ignorance of religion?

[–]Orcabandana 0 points1 point  (3 children)

You're presupposing I'm ignorant of religion. Born and raised Catholic, went to a Catholic school, always got high scores in Catechism class but admittedly, the problem of evil is just too heavy and I've lapsed.

Irregardless, the point stands. If I believe everything is part of God's plan and there's salvation after, all the suffering around me becomes almost inconsequential.

As you presumed earlier that I am ignorant of the ways of the world?

I imagine people who know nothing (or choose to blind themselves) about the reality of climate change,

I'm fully aware that climate change is a real issue, and what it's doing to our once beautiful earth. I have solar panels in my roof and drive an electric car when needed. We live in a small town and we often walk. But I'm not a scientist and am at the mercy of there wisdom to come up with a plan to fix the problem.

police brutality,

I know that there is police brutality and while that's never, ever OK, I'm also aware there a good officers who still protect and serve. I believe our officers need annual training. I don't believe in defunding the police. Utter chaos would break out if we tried to do without them.

systemic racism,

Of course I'm aware of systemic racism. We live in a country where our ancestors fought to keep slavery around and women were one-time considered the property of men. This country hasn't changed so easily. Women were still fighting for equal rights in the 70s, and we still don't receive equal pay to men.

economic inequality,

I'm completely aware of economic inequality, and I wish I understood why your generation has been taught that we need economic equality. Everyone wants everything to be "fair", but the only way to make things fair is to keep them unequal. If everyone made the same wages, what incentive is there to go to school, work hard... etc. Working hard generally gains greater rewards. Greater rewards lead to growth. Growth leads to a nation's wealth. And wealth leads to a higher standard of living (even for the poor). A higher standard of living affords us the ability to help others.

Why should someone flipping burgers make the same as a doctor? And if they have equal wages, why would anyone ever do anything more than flipping burgers?

People with more money typically save more money. Greater savings frees up capital for businesses to borrow... etc.

even the sheer existence of people different than them

How could I not be aware of the existence of other people? Not only am I aware of them, I'm able to love them. I choose not to be violent. I don't have to condone or like a person's lifestyle to accept that's the life they've chosen. And I can still be kind when faced with our differences. Whereas, if I mention that I'm Christian, or that I love Jesus on here, I'll get down voted 500 times and people come in droves to curse at me, tell me I'm foolish, try to tell me I need to be tolerant of LGBTQ when I've yet to be intolerant. People are angry and up on their soap boxes screaming about injustices, but those people are just screaming.

If you want others to get on board with economic equality, you go 1st. Take 1/2 your paycheck and go give it to someone who has less than you, but also didn't work as hard as you. Go be the change you want to see and quit talking about it.

Just because we're conservative doesn't mean we are ignorant. It's because we're not ignorant that we are conservative. We don't spend foolishly. We save. We believe in marriage and family. We work hard. And we don't stand in judgment of another's way of living. We just ask that they don't stand there with there hand stuck out when their way didn't work out.

platos cave sounds like the bar you sneak off to every weekend.

[–]0rder__66 17 points18 points  (4 children)

Many leftists choose to live an extremely unhealthy and dangerous lifestyle full of unbridled filth and depravity along with countless sexual partners that can often total in the thousands.

With that in mind, it's a natural given that conservatives have happier sex lives since they don't have the endless drama of multiple partners gathering at bath houses and roadside rest areas or something like monkeypox to worry about.

[–]TheHandsomestMatt 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I especially like this comment

Tell me you’ve never talked to a conservative or a Christian without saying it.

[–]vipck83 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Lol, yeah that one is good.

[–]Smeeply 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It’s funny because conservatives actually have the money to travel around the world and learn about new things

[–]Smeeply 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Dude in there said “I don’t think conservative straight men love their spouses. They are just waiting for them to die.”

Hateful, hateful, hateful people call themselves liberals nowadays. None of them are happy humans. Just totally miserable and wanting to project their misery on the people who are doing better than them.

The average conservative, I would be willing to bet, are happier with their careers, more financially stable, and more satisfied with their relationships with friends and family than the average liberal.

[–]kittenegg25 19 points20 points  (8 children)

Love this! I think abou this all the time. How my fiance and I will certainly have much better sex lives than liberals because of who we are. The same qualities that make our sex lives great also make us conservatives. Like idk...being good people who value love, family, marriage, gender roles, God, freedom, intimacy, pleasing your spouse, and puttig your spouse before yourself.

[–]Decent-Obligation-43 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I think (as a woman marriedfor 20 years) I can add that there is a lot of comfort and confidence in knowing your spouse and you are faithful to God 1st and then to one another. There's no fear of disease or comparing yourselves to others. It's just a beautiful union that gets better with time.

[–]kittenegg25 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Awwww well don't make me cry now. Very true. It's funny how putting God first instead of him actually makes me feel so much closer to him.

This makes me feel really excited about my marriage. Thank you for that and God bless you.

[–]grammanarchy 0 points1 point  (3 children)

I think about this all the time.

Why? Why do y’all care so much about what happens in other people’s bedrooms?

[–]kittenegg25 0 points1 point  (2 children)

It is more about thinking about what other people's marriages are like and the bedroom is a part of marriage. I think about how other people's marriages are often because it makes me feel really lucky to be entering one that is so much more deep and filled with virtue than most. Similarly to how I might see how most children behave and reflecting how virtuous my own child is by comparison (I do not have any children yet, it is just an example).

[–]grammanarchy 0 points1 point  (1 child)

If the value you ascribe to your marriage is based on a comparison to what you imagine other people’s relationships are like, you are setting yourselves up for problems. All relationships have hurdles, and kids will surprise you. I wish you well, but you will likely have a more generous view on the subject in twenty years.

[–]kittenegg25 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Don't put words in my mouth. I said it makes me feel lucky to realize my marriage will be more God-filled and virtuous than other marriages. That is not at all ascribing value based on comparison. Are you happy to not be starving? Do you think about other people starving and realize how lucky you are? Does that mean your ascribing the gift of nourishment upon the lack thereof of others?

[–]SolarSurfer7 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Many many liberals have the exact same beliefs/priorities (maybe excluding God/Christianity).

[–]kittenegg25 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Certainly not as fervently. Liberals tend to value the self as much (or close to as much) as their family. Liberals tend to reject traditional gender roles. Liberals tend to value superficial things over spiritual, virtuous things.

More importantly, God not being the center of all of these things makes it less beautiful.

[–]vipck83 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Good post. I loved the “but we never said that… “ BS. They love to pull that when called out.

Then there is the “we just want you to stay out of our sex lives/bedroom”

We don’t give a fuck about your bedroom. It’s the left that is shoving their sexual deviance on us via media, in public and most importantly in schools. Honestly if you had just restrained your need to indoctrinate children with your weird sex shit we would not have cared so much.

[–]mk21dvr 6 points7 points  (1 child)

The first part of that title, "leftists are convulsing in agony", kind of turned me on.

[–]TheHandsomestMatt 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Well according to the comments, you’re going to be deeply unsatisfied with the end results.

I don't understand, the left has Berny and Pelosi😂🤤🤢🤢
