Who not to date or marry, the divorce lawyers view..

https://www.msn.com/en-gb/lifestyle/...d=winp1taskbar



In a new video the legal expert sets out her findings from a career in the industry, advising women on the five male professions in which she’s noticed the most “controlling” and “narcissistic” tendencies during the cases she's been involved in.
The clip which spells out her “top five professions of men that women should avoid marrying” has racked up tens of thousands of likes and comments since being posted recently.
Listing the professions, she wrote: “Fireman - I’ve never really understood that one, but it’s on there - police officer, military, surgeon and pilot.

“If you look at these professions, what do they all have in common? The men in these professions, they’re gods in their professions.”

She explained her choices by added: “If you’re a policeman you’re walking around with authority. If you’re a surgeon, you’re walking around the hospital and everyone looks up to you, you’re in charge, everybody treats you with respect.”

“Then you come home, and all of a sudden someone is asking you to take out the trash. I think that’s a difficult transition to make. Pilots especially. If you look at pilots and you cross over to [the] air force, military… they’re in control of 150-200 peoples’ lives at a time.

“They are treated with a tremendous amount of respect and they have a lot of responsibility, and they tend to be very narcissistic and very controlling.”

Fair enough; I'm not going to marry any of them.

I'd have thought a divorce lawyer would advise people to marry someone unsuited to them.

Should men also avoid the female representatives of all those professions?

"the legal expert sets out her findings"

"her"

I suspect that the history behind this opinion may be even more interesting than the conclusions.

I'm surprised not to see us coach drivers mentioned. We're very similar to pilots, just don't go up and down as much.

Meanwhile if you're watching The Split currently on BBC TV, you can see divorce lawyers marrying and divorcing other divorce lawyers. The fees must be going round in circles!

I am most surprised that solicitors and barristers do not feature on that list.

And "actors".

Aviation forum moderators or medical forum mods or just all of ‘em?

Totally false premise. Stupid confusion between correlation and cause.

If you look at the list you'll see that all the named professions require dedication and either shift work or 'on call' attendance. Largely people who are as dedicated or more so to their jobs as they are to their spouses.
This is a trait that is attractive to others in abstract however it is less attractive in actuality and becomes less so over time.
As mentioned above, it might be more interesting to find out who contrived this list and why.

If you can't beat them - join them

Few warning flags there between the lines... She advices (her female clients?) So based on a long experience as a divorce lawyer they should know a lot about who to avoid divorcing, instead of who to avoid marrying or dating. It's a 180. She didn't think that one through at all ...

I think this might be appropriate


Once upon a time, a pilot asked a beautiful princess, "Will you marry me?"

The princess said, "No!"

And the pilot lived happily ever after and flew jets all over the world and drove hot cars and banged skinny long-legged big-titted flight attendants and hunted and fished and went to topless bars and dated women half his age and drank whiskey, martinis and Captain Morgan and never heard bitching and never paid child support or alimony and kept his house and guns and ate cold spam and potato chips and beans and blew enormous farts and never got cheated on while he was at work and all his friends and family thought he was frickin cool as hell and he had tons of money in the bank and even left the toilet seat up.........

The End

Possibly that might be cited as grounds for divorce?... the not going up and down as much bit.

Never marry a woman who makes less money than you.
