Wrongfully conceived notions about the nature of both sexes deny Americans the wonderment of the opposite sex. From the lack of wonderment comes individual lack of self-respect, which projects outwardly as less respect for others, which reflects back as less respect, trust, love, and likeability. Thus, the circle transmutes lack of wonderment at the opposite gender into lack of individual love and likeability. And you say, “So what?” And I remind that a man’s love is based on respect for his woman and likeability is a major component of compatibility. The consequence: Marriages don’t last because of lack of knowledge about the nature of the opposite sex. That’s the gap this blog is designed to close.
Within a couple their compatible natures motivate them to live like this. Where husband will lead, wife will follow. Where he won’t lead, she will. Where she leads, he won’t follow closely although he may hang around for awhile. As they age, her influence over husband escalates and he becomes more willing for her to lead. Over and above lifestyle causes, hormonal changes beyond midlife cause him to appreciate her leadership much more than earlier.
Feminists gain political, legal, and economic advantages for women. It’s well deserved too. However, they do it by demeaning men, diminishing their importance in home and family, and compensating them with unmarried sex to squelch objections. Men respond by expanding their independence from female interests and detaching themselves from monogamous loyalty, which enables them to dominate both home and culture at the expense of women and children. Husbandly devotion and fatherly loyalty have been so severely weakened all across society that both women and children suffer abuse in one form or another—even if just lack of respect for being a very important person by reason of being human.
