There has been a standing agreement among MGTOW men that there are different “levels” of MGTOW and that men tend to fluctuate around these levels. Generally it’s accepted that there are four levels.
- Rejects marriage and common-law
- Rejects long-term relationships. Has short-term relationships for self-serving purposes.
- Rejects all forms of personal relationships with women. May have a few platonic female friends and/or relatives they still associate with.
- Partial Societal rejection. Withdraws from society as much as is within his power.
I would like to offer up that there is yet another type of MGTOW. I am not sure where in the level spectrum you could place them because of their circumstance. But this would be a man who became aware of the red pill and has taken it after they have married. You see I believe these men can hold the MGTOW mindset even though they are already in a situation where they have signed the marriage contract. Part of being MGTOW is becoming self-aware.
Some would argue that a man in a marriage contract could not go their own way, that it is impossible. I argue that an industrious man, one that embodies his own will and makes the best out of his situation no matter what that situation may be. I will not be the man who discredits my brother because he unknowingly fell into a trap. Why would I deny him the right to be sovereign to himself when only a man can choose for himself? No, I say we help these men as we can.
So yes, I believe a married man can become MGTOW after he has put himself in this situation and that these are the MGTOW brothers in the most danger. Self-preservation is hardest when you are already in the belly of the beast.
