She’s saving for her daughter’s special day.

Jenny Erikson’s colleague Wendy Robinson at Cafe Mom has created a savings account preparing for her daughter’s special day.  No, not her wedding, her divorce:

I’m so convinced that every woman should have money that would give her the freedom to walk away from a bad relationship, that I’m already starting to save for my daughter. She’s no where near needing it yet, but some day she might.

On a related note, from The Political HEAT (H/T Red Pill Latecomer): Proud Single Mom January Jones: Father Figure Would Be Toxic For My Son

It’s good to have strong women around a man. To teach him to respect women.  He doesn’t have a male person in his life saying ‘don’t cry’ or ‘you throw like a girl.’ All those sh**ty things dads accidentally do.

I just don’t feel I need a partner. Do I want one? Maybe.  But I don’t feel unhappy or lonely. It would have to be someone so amazing that I would want to make room. Someone who would contribute to my happiness and not take away from it.

I want a manly man in flannel, with a beard and an axe.  But then there’s always something wrong with him. Like he’s a Republican.

Where have all of the good men gone? Don’t their fathers raise them to be real men? All she wants is an old school manly lumberjack who is a sensitive new age guy, a man who chops down trees with his bare hands and then cries at sunsets while eating dolphin safe tuna. Is that too much to ask?

Edit:  I think I’ve found her ideal man.  H/T Instapundit.

    One of the gifts I plan to give my daughter is the ability to be a good wife and discern who’s going to be a good husband.

    My husband and I will be there for our daughter if she takes a financial hit because she’s widowed with small children, but we’re sure as heck not going to set her up to fail.

    So, this is some sort of fun house-mirror version of a dowry?

    I think, similarly, that every man needs to have hundreds or thousands set aside in his name only that no woman, anywhere, has any claim to. Can we get an amen from the Complementarian Choir?

  4. BillyS says:

    My former father-in-law helped pay the initial costs so my exwife (his daughter) could be just like the exwife (her mother) he despises. Many people have absolutely no sense.

  5. Wait. Which is it, Wendy? Are you consuming or saving here?

    A few weeks ago you were giving your readers a half-assed apology/rationalization as to why its OK for you to spend your own child’s college funds for travel adventures, even though you openly admit to have racked up massive student loan debts yourself ($700/mo payments for student loans for Masters and Doctorates in Education?): https://thestir.cafemom.com/money/214433/travel-college-fund

    Now you say you want to establish a “screw you” account for your daughter just in case she finds herself in a bad relationship in the future: https://thestir.cafemom.com/tweens_teens/215293/screw-you-account

    Question: Are women just constantly seeking themselves and then just “finding themselves” in bad situations? Do they really not have any sense of personal accountability for their own decisions and the consequences that follow?

    State divorce laws and common family court decrees already afford ex-wives with inordinate levels of “f#%$ you!” money in the form of child custody awards, decrees for payments of un-audited child support and decrees for almost unlimited amounts spousal support for the rest of her life, regardless of the wife’s prior education level, work history, current career status, or her current income and future earning potential.

    So you really don’t have to do anything, Wendy. You don’t have to save.
    It’s already taken care of.
    Feel free to use that $5.00 per week you had in mind for your daughter’s “f%#$ you!” account, and make a $705 payment toward your student loan debt instead.

  6. Paul says:

    “Screw you account”? Given history of divorces, women don’t need such an account, they just suck the account of their ex empty, and drain all his cash for the following decade or so.

  7. feministhater says:

    Thank God for these women! Thank you Lord. Amen!

  8. feministhater says:

    Can we get an amen from the Complementarian Choir?

    No, what you can expect though is a court ordered assessment of your finances forcing you to divulge all you assets to the court. If you’re caught lying or hiding money or assets, consider them forfeit. Ain’t marriage grand, hey chumps!?

  9. Jean says:

    It stuns me sometimes how capriciously some people get married. A failed marriage ruins at least two souls.

  10. Captain Roark says:

    It saddens me to see a mother encouraging these kind of Unchristian values to her daughter. By creating an account for her to use for divorce not only she is discouraging her daughter to do her part for a future marriage of hers to work. But she is also giving reasons for her daughter to divorce whenever she feels like. According to Romans 7, this is a very unchristian behavior, a marriage is supposed to last “until death do us part”. The most affected people by divorces are usually the children. In order for a child to grow up happy, healthy and confident. He needs both his father and mother.

    @ constrainedlocus

    Now you say you want to establish a “screw you” account for your daughter just in case she finds herself in a bad relationship in the future:

    Is it really a “screw you” account, or is it an “I don’t need to screw you if I don’t feel like it” account?

    I want a supermodel woman with great cooking skills and sweet personality…but there’s always something wrong with her. Like she has pointy elbows. Why doesn’t fried ice exist?

    women don’t seem like very good people.

  22. earl says:

    So I read the first paragraph of the article:

    My friend B is a stay-at-home mom. She loves her two children but fears her husband. She knows he’s cheating on her and she knows he has issues with alcohol. When he has been drinking, he can be cruel and physical with her. As her friend, I desperately want her to leave him. She wants to leave too, but one thing stands in her way: money.

    Ok so let’s say this is true (although with believe wimminz that can be a stretch)…he’s a cad and an alky. Did this just suddenly happen in the marriage or was he one of those ‘tingle inducers’ she just couldn’t live without because when they weren’t married that behavior was exciting? Of course when you do get married that all changes.

    Long story short…while it’s not a 100% guarentee…watching the person’s behavior before they are your spouse is a pretty good indicator what their behavior will be in marriage. Her friend might have been focused more on her tingles than if the guy was a good authority figure.

    Now she could teach her daughters to choose a responsible dependable man for a husband (instead of a savings account when their tingle inducing cad goes off the rails)…but to them that guy is boring and we can’t have a woman ever feel boredom.

    Earl, seems to me that I made the right choice to just go outside of the US of A, pick out and buy my wife, teach her the bare minimum she needed to know about this western “culture” to get by. Jeez, these brain dead women here cannot be salvaged it would seem

  27. farmlegend says:

    “I want a manly man in flannel, with a beard and an axe. But then there’s always something wrong with him. Like he’s a Republican.”

    I see this all the time. Leftist women who want masculine manly men that are simultaneously also leftists, and not soyboys. Fried ice, indeed.

  28. Spike says:

    January Jones needs to be aware of the very, very bad record the children of celebrities have. Most become career dropouts and wrecks. This usually starts with ”non-conforming” parents (read: mother in charge), who gives them a stupid name. Knowing that money never runs out, they never learn the skills that get them through life.
    Ms Jones son is set to follow suit. Perhaps he will be the anecdotal exception to the statistical rule about celebrity children and single mothers, but with mother clearly not thinking straight, it doesn’t look good.

  29. earl says:

    I see this all the time. Leftist women who want masculine manly men that are simultaneously also leftists, and not soyboys.

    What they are saying in no uncertain terms is they want a masculine man who is emasculated.

  30. Nick Mgtow says:

    “I want a manly man in flannel, with a beard and an axe. But then there’s always something wrong with him. Like he’s a Republican.”

    Gee, I wonder why she can’t find a masculine leftist… #wait

  31. Jack Russell says:

    A male child named Xander raised by his single mother named January Jones?!?! That is already a recipe for one screwed up kid when he gets older. He will end up a drug addict or a flaming homosexual. No male role models in his life.

  32. earl says:

    I must have skimmed over it…but reason #1 to just say NO to single mothers…because they ALL think this.

    I just don’t feel I need a partner. Do I want one? Maybe. But I don’t feel unhappy or lonely. It would have to be someone so amazing that I would want to make room. Someone who would contribute to my happiness and not take away from it.

    You see Captain Saveaho…you are on HER (and her kid’s) terms. If you sumbit to HER authority…then she MIGHT deem you worthy to be her helpmate. Nevermind that some other guy clearly had his way with her which she was more than ok with before you came along.

  33. earl says:

    Single mothers seem to think they have all the leverage in the situation when they have almost none.

    Or a serial killer.

  35. Ray6777 says:

    It’s interesting the most liberal feminists like Ms. Jones will openly admit they want masculine men. There was an interview with insane feminist Chelsea Handler where she was more specific about what she wanted.
    ““I need somebody who can put me in my place. You know? I want a man that can be like, ‘Listen. You’re out of line right now,’” Handler shared. “I want somebody who can kind of manhandle me, so to speak, in a nice way.”

  36. earl says:

    Of course liberal feminists want masculine men…until they decide they don’t.

    I think what they don’t get is most masculine men and probably a growing segment of the emasculated don’t really want them.

  37. Paul says:

    “It’s interesting the most liberal feminists like Ms. Jones will openly admit they want masculine men.”

    At the core of feminism is the belief women are like gods able to change creation to their insane desires at will. Doesn’t that sound familiar?

    Sometimes whiffs of true feelings can no longer be oppressed and Ms.Jones had at least some honesty about some of such desires, which are the result of her being created a woman.

    “Should all Christians be aromantic?”

    I’m a Christian and I lean towards asexual. Judging from articles like these, I’m being spared a lot of grief.

    ““Should all Christians be aromantic?”

    “I’m a Christian and I lean towards asexual. Judging from articles like these, I’m being spared a lot of grief.”

    Not the same thing. Aromantic means a woman is so fugly that she didn’t want male attention anyway.

    I just realized that’s a hideous URL for the post… ah, well, it’s still fitting.

  40. Disillusioned says:

    I have been watching the first episodes of the TV series, “Manifest”. I have some spoilers so be careful if you dont want them to ruin the show for you.

    The two main characters are a brother and sister. When the brother was around his wife and kids seems were fine. After coming back after 5 years everything went to pot under his wifes guidance. Her daughter became rebellious and was sneaking out of the house at night. The mother didnt seem to care. She just put her into therapy. The mother herself had been sexually promiscous and had a main man when the husband showed up. The mother also squandered all the savings including the life insurance she got for him. Of course he kept forgiving her and all that but I wonder if he has a limit. This might be a Christian show and may be showing the importance of a man and how a woman will mess things up, not care and have an excuse for everything.

  41. Bleu Chekist says:

    If you browse Jenny Erikson’s Instagram (@jennyerikson), you’ll find that since she blew up her family and kicked her first husband Leif to the curb, she has added daughter number three and is pregnant with kid number four.

    A middle aged man (fiancé? husband?) periodically appears in her photos and is apparently the father of daughter number three. His Instagram is @justinhart.

    Poor fool. She’ll detonate this marriage too, in time.

    Well, “leverage resides where men believe it resides. It’s a trick. A shadow on the wall. ” It’s a power game. And women since their teens are used to exercise their manipulation powers the same way some men are used to exercise their muscles. The same way you won’t notice a loss of stamina, tonicity or explosivity, the same way you won’t notice that you can’t lift, exercise, run or do a physical job as you used to in your teens, twenties or thirties right away, the same way women won’t notice that they don’t have the same negotiating power until it’s 45 and the snap of their finger won’t work anymore…

    @purge187

    As defined by the lunatics on the Left who come up with crap like this:

    Aromantic = not feeling romantic attraction.
    Asexual = not feeling sexual attraction.

    Both are not natural. Human being, especially men, are sexual in nature. Not getting laid and not getting a good rub-off from time to time can cause depression, stress, and lack of sleep. A man’s sexual drive is natural to its core and a necessity for reproduction as well. Men’s sexual needs are different than ‘gina tingles women get, it gets painful after a while if you do not release some pressure.

    Purge, while you may be “spared a lot of grief” not feeling sexual attraction, may the the result of low testosterone and/or depression. Yes, you are also spared a lot of grief, but unless you are truly disciplined, it is noit a long term solution.

    Stopping completely is crazy. Yeah, you can take a break from approaching women or even going on a date for a while. I am doing that right now, because it is time-consuming and I have a lot going on now. But I KNOW when I start doing in-person approaches again, it will be harder than if I had never stopped. It is like stopping going to the gym for 2 or 3 weeks… when you re-start, you will get crazy sore and perform poorly.

    Being asexual or aromantic is NOT the solution. The solution is learning Game, strategies to deal with women effectively. Understand female nature, the thinking and mindset behind their actions/behaviors, and reacting accordingly is the solution.

  44. John Galt says:

    “Poor fool. She’ll detonate this marriage too, in time”

    Perhaps. In the mean time, despite all vindictive predictions to the contrary on this website, she seems to have stuck the landing.

    My guess is, like the Parable of the Unjust Steward, she’s gotten away with it.

  45. OKRickety says:

    “Jenny Erikson […] She’ll detonate this marriage too, in time.”

    She may detonate the relationship, but there may not be a marriage to detonate

    Per her Instagram of Aug. 9:

    “We were supposed to get married today, but because we’re us, it ended up being a comedy of errors and we decided last week to postpone.
    […]
    We’ll get married someday. Maybe next month. Or next year. But for now we have each other and this ridiculously beautiful family and life, and our hearts are full. “

    In other words, who cares if we marry or not? Just what you’d expect from such a fine, “Christian” woman.

  46. earl says:

    She’s at least got him for child support already…but who knows when she’ll decide to detonate his right to his kids. Perhaps when she finds the next sperm donor.

  47. Oscar says:

    That chick’s a train wreck. She did her ex husband a favor by abandoning him.

  48. feeriker says:

    “We were supposed to get married today, but because we’re us, it ended up being a comedy of errors and we decided last week to postpone.
    […]

    The schlub she’s shacking up with is a 24-karat moron who clearly deserves her.

  49. Wow! This is a little disturbing. Does mom not have any business of her own? And this should not be the norm for anyone that is married to have all your affairs in order just in case there is a divorce. Just have your things in order because that is being responsible. I wonder if the mom is married and if her mom did the same thing. We are creatures that follow others even bad behavioral traits.
