Geraldo says ‘beta marriage’ is a bad idea for women
Red-pillism’s are showing up more and more in the main stream media. FoxNews recently hosted a discussion on the topic of ‘beta marriages’ where the idea is that a couple can setup housekeeping for 2 years and then decide to dissolve the relationship w/out going through divorce proceedings.
Geraldo is opposed to this idea on the grounds that it deprives women of the one thing they bring to the marriage table – their youth. Specifically:
“I know this may provoke a Stephen Smith-like reaction, but I think essentially — although there’s an increase in two-income marriages — generally speaking, the man is the breadwinner, more often than not, although now increasingly women do work.

So if a woman were to invest two years in one of these marriages, and then to be rejected by the man, I think that she has given up a valuable asset that is unequal — in other words, the man gets everything and the woman gets nothing from this arrangement.”
Afterwards Geraldo went to twitter to defend his position from the predictable backlash:
