"You can't take the car out of the parking lot until you pay for it."
Yes, a woman actually said that.
The very same woman that Sten referred to in her post about the "Couple who didn't kiss before marriage."
I find it ironic that a person who has such "values" can reduce herself to a car and then exclaim to the world that her man needs to pay for her love, affection, and well... her saliva before she'll "leave the garage," so to speak.
I think their "courtship" sounds like a game in control and manipulation.
"I won't do the laundry until you clean the kitchen," is one thing, but saying, "I won't kiss you until you buy me a big ol' diamond!" is quite another.
It's one thing to hold out on sex...
But on plain ol' affection?
Isn't that part of a good relationship?
And so I wonder...
If they were never alone, never kissed, and obviously played games...
How likely is it that now that he's driven the car around the block, he isn't going to want to trade her in for something better?
