♀♂ Women reject this truism for making marriage work: Before marriage he should prove himself worthy of her. That is, she makes him the seller and her the buyer. He peddles all his strengths, and she evaluates his character and likelihood of delivery on his promises. After marriage, she keeps herself worthy of him. That is, she becomes the seller and peddles rewards for his husbanding and fathering.
♀ Pregnant women duplicate men with big beer bellies. They use tight clothing and masculinize motherhood. Fashion before sexiness, attractiveness, and femininity—not what men appreciate.
♀ Thirtysomething women without kids have no outlet for their mothering instinct. So, they parent their man.
♀ Wives treat husbands much less respectfully than they treat boyfriends, lovers, and shack up partners. Two effects: Husbands dump wives more easily. Other men see what happens, avoid marriage, and go for shack up.
♀ Women condemn the male ego, as if they have none of their own. The feminist movement made the female ego explode. Activists took advantage.
♀ Men seek a woman that accepts him as he is and wants to stay. Women nevertheless think they can or should change their man.
