“Lord of the rings” and Marriage

Men love Lord of the rings. It is a book that is worshiped by so many. they see in it a small picture of the world, sometimes a better alternative than the world we live in. They seek truth within it. girls, why do you think so many young men feel so connected to this imaginary world? Well, here is the good news, and the bad:

This book is a symbol, a metaphor if you like, of marriage. Just think about it. It makes perfect sense:
First, you have a guy that puts on a ring of great power. Now, mirroring man’s greatest fear, that ring, once on his finger – turns him utterly invisible. A dark force slowly takes control over the person who wears the ring, and the longer he wears it, the stronger it’s force over him becomes. Until, his soul is lost forever and he will live a life of shadows, gone to his friends and loved ones. The man sets alone in a quest to destroy the ring, on advice of his other male friends. His quest for freedom leaves him homeless, as shattered man. now you see why men flock to it?
What else, you ask? More proof you seek? Oh yes. The Dragons and Dwarfs that the books is full of. Well, dear reader, do I really need to spell it out?
The dragon is of course the man’s mother in law. An evil monster that needs to be fought and vanquished before you can win the pretty damsel. The dwarfs? They are simply the kids to come. Small brats running around and laying their dirty hands on anything shiny and precious. Oh, and they love swinging hammers and other tools on anything.

Questions anyone?

  5. My favorite scene is when Frodo and his buddies are at the bar drinking and then Frodo falls and the ring ends up on his finger and the poof Frodo is not in the bar, he is in some sort of purgatory with a menacing figure giving him the evil eye. The ring comes off and he is back at the bar with his buddies and the evil is gone. Do you think this parallels marriage? I do.

  6. lord of the rings is a satanic agenda to destroy your marriage, and you shouldnt be brainwashed by this movie to do so. satan is trying to promote homosexuality through frodo and sam. “the shire” = the shower

  7. Men this and men that. This may come as a shock, but in a country where a small modicum of equality between genders exists (so, not the US), women like LotR and fantasy and roleplaying just as much as men do. It’s not shameful not to pretend to be a vapid barbie doll who only aspires for a guy and some kids, over here. Do come to Finland. People like (American) immigrants here. Well, as long as they’re the “right” skin color. Yes, our otherwise nifty homeland is ridden with racism and xenophobia (again, not against Americans, we pretend to be American in every aspect of life, ourselves), but then again, I bet you folks are plenty used to it.
