Bad whiskey? How come women get blamed for that one?

Marriage of son? Someone explain that one please. Also, seems you can't win when both "immoral life" AND "religious enthusiasm" is on the list. There are a couple of other opposites, too.

"Marriage of son" I'm assuming means "empty nest syndrome" sort of thing. The similar era adage "Your daughter's your daughter all of her life, your son's your son only until he takes him a wife."

My first thought (admittedly not a very kind one, lol) was because the new daughter-in-law drove you around the bend. :P

LoL.

Well, both approaches are not recommending letting your son marry - ever!!! ;D

They've taken victim blaming to a whole new level here - your husband deserts you, go to the asylum.
War is on the list too ... in case you can't be blamed for anything else.

What is "Uterine Derangement" and how was that diagnosed exactly???
BrokenTune 4 months ago
Is this the same as "hysteria", the wandering womb?

There are so many that make no sense to someone not up to speed with the euphemisms of the day.

Both possibilities strike up really unpleasant mental images. Have you seen the movie Constantine with Keanue Reeves? If so, the pool scene at the end was what popped into my head when I read Uterine Derangement. :P

No I haven't seen that one, but it's on the list because...Tilda Swinton...

She was SO good as Gabriel!! SO good. I might have to watch that again soon actually...

I NEED to find it. SOON.

I can't remember a film of hers where I didn't like her performance.

"Masturbation for 30 years" - who is doing the record keeping? Why is 30 years the no-go line in the sand? So many questions....

And why is someone standing on the sidelines witnessing without doing something (either having them committed if that's what they believe or lending a hand/more?) about it for 30 years?

So many questions indeed.
