Do you have to live in fear of your life since you broke away from the Muslim religion? Is there a target on your back as the result of taking on western women’s rights? Or are you disowned and shunned by your friends and family but left to be on your own? Lastly why do Muslim women try to get Western women drawn into their beliefs when Muslim women are regarded as property to abuse and forced into almost a type of slavery. I personally could never sit back and allow the men of that religion dictate to me that my daughter must be married to whomever wishes to claim her as his wife. To allow them to rape these children or mudulate their body’s.
I could not agree with you more!! Husbands (in the best and truest sense of the word) know God and know that marriage is a sacred union that cohabitation could never touch. I know women who are settling and have convinced themselves otherwise. I was on my way to being one when stuck in a long-term, dead-end relationship, but I knew it wasn't the same thing and wanted (and deserved) more.
Dating for years on end may "work" for some, but to me, marriage is a covenant, not just two people in love and staying together for an indefinite period of time. It symbolizes the ultimate level of exclusivity and commitment. If you don't get it, you don't get it. And, yes, my hubby knows my brand.:)
Anchoring can have more subtle effects on negotiations as well. Janiszewski and Uy investigated the effects of precision of an anchor. Participants read an initial price for a beach house, then gave the price they thought it was worth. They received either a general, seemingly nonspecific anchor (., $800,000) or a more precise and specific anchor (., $799,800). Participants with a general anchor adjusted their estimate more than those given a precise anchor ($751,867 vs $784,671). The authors propose that this effect comes from difference in scale; in other words, the anchor affects not only the starting value , but also the starting scale . When given a general anchor of $20, people will adjust in large increments ($19, $21, etc.), but when given a more specific anchor like $, people will adjust on a lower scale ($, $, etc.).  Thus, a more specific initial price will tend to result in a final price closer to the initial one.
