As we progress through the 48 Laws of Power, or in this case the 48 Laws of Marriage, you will begin to see a web being spun; laws connecting, splitting off of, and running parallel with other laws. As you study these laws, take time to reflect on the sum of the lessons and see the tapestry they weave. Continue reading “The 48 Laws of Marriage: Law 5”
“Without concealment there is no space for expression. Not all words are shared.
Word must arise from concealing silence in order to resonate. Concealment is the method of controlled communication, whether communication of existence or redirection of connection. Concealment is deliberation, it is precision, it is the beginning of skill.
Concealment protects truth in time of war through the hoisting of deliberate false flags, designed to mislead and redirect the adversary away from vital plans and secrets. Thereby the momentum of justice is preserved in alliance against the depredations of tyrants.
Concealment advances survival by preventing revelation of the existence of prey. The dappled coat of the deer blends with the fluttered leaves of autumn, and its frozen stillness keeps it hidden from the searching gaze of a passing cougar that the deer cannot outrun or fight.
You will not always be the most powerful actor in the fields and forests of the dark world.
Concealment is a subtle Way that you must master.”
Being able to effectively conceal your intentions gives you power. Continue reading “The 48 Laws of Marriage: Law 3 & 4”
A huge part of the red pill is raising your SMV, having solid game, and attracting and having sex with women. Married guys have it similar, but the parameters are different. While certain aspects of game can be less important, other aspects are under constant scrutiny. Today we’ll go over what a normal functioning married sex life should look like, and how you can go about fixing a dead bedroom. Continue reading “Sex for the Red Pilled Married Man”
Strap yourselves in, men. We got a lot to discuss today regarding this law and a lot of uncomfortable territory to explore. You may even find yourself being forced to make some tough choices in order to preserve the very foundation of your marriage.

I’m not going to spend a lot of time on the background of the 48 Laws of Power, but suffice to say if you are planning on maintaining proper frame with your wife and blowing her shit tests out of the water, you need at least a rudimentary understanding of these Machiavelli principles. Continue reading “The 48 Laws of Marriage: Law 1”
In marriage there are roles that each man and woman must take on. The man is expected to be a protector, provider, a strategist, and strong. A woman is expected to be dedicated, a care taker, loyal, and provide in a different way. Far too often you see married guys succumbing to every single request their wives have and you can almost feel the tension and see the broken spirit of the guy. While there will be some crossover of duties at times, the balance should be equal. Continue reading “Denying Her Requests”
This article was originally a guest post written by Jak for Charles Sledge’s site. An excerpt will be placed here along with a link to the full article below.
While reading Charles’s article about the Chinese Bamboo Tree, I was reminded of a related story told to me by my martial arts instructor a few months ago: The Zen Master and a Cup of Tea. While the story about the bamboo tree details the eventual rewards that patience and persistence provide, this short story about a cup of tea that I am going to regale you with will explain how you should enter into something new that you are wanting to learn more about. It’s a lesson about adopting the correct mindset for learning.

“…I’ve made it my business to observe fathers and daughters. And I’ve seen some incredible, beautiful things. Like the little girl who’s not very cute – her teeth are funny, and her hair doesn’t grow right, and she’s got on thick glasses – but her father holds her hand and walks with her like she’s a tiny angel that no one can touch. He gives her the best gift a woman can get in this world: protection. And the little girl learns to trust the man in her life. And all the things that the world expects from women – to be beautiful, to soothe the troubled spirit, heal the sick, care for the dying, send the greeting card, bake the cake – all of those things become the way we pay the father back for protecting us…”

“A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.”
Following close on the footsteps of Level 3, Level 4 is about conditioning your wife to accept things on your terms. Think of it as a Level 3: Part 2, if you will. Between work, the gym, your various hobbies and adventures, and hustling on the side, you don’t have time for petty emotional games and it’s time to let your wife know that.
