The destruction she brings may be years in the making.
You are not in an inflatable safe zone with clean, temperate water.
You are in the surf of the dark world, where leviathans lurk in the depths and beasts of strange and terrible purpose await the misstep of the unwary.
Cruelly, remorselessly, viciously and without stopping until there is nothing left.
If you are a young man starting out in the world and you are happily splashing in the dating pool, be aware.
You cannot restore your name, the stolen years behind bars, or worst of all the degraded love and respect of the children you have brought into the world.
Young men in particular must recognize the red flags of the damaged woman and pay heed to them.
Their recognition often comes with the sad loss of a marriage, their children taken by the courts, their fortunes unfairly divided and their priceless reputation and even freedom taken from them forever.
You can build another fortune or marry another woman.
If you are a married man and you have been ignoring the red flags then you may recognize them with growing terror as you read this. We’ll talk about each situation at the end of this post.
