Men and women need each other for various reasons. This article explores some ancient concepts about how men can help women, and at the end, how the women can help the men. Understanding this can make for a much better marriage, partnership and more.
MEN ARE TOUGHER AND STRONGER, AND THEIR ROLE MUST BE ONE OF PROTECTION
This should be obvious but to some people, it is not obvious. Men should protect women. The worst is when men use women sexually or in any other way. Men must protect and shield their women, preventing any kind of abuse, rape, torture, and more. This is an obvious role of a man in a marriage or man-woman relationship.
Too often, however, it is not the case. Instead, the man takes liberties with his lady and far from protecting her, uses her sexually or in other ways. This is a reversal of the natural order and always leads to resentment, disease, divorce and social disintegration. So men, remember this always. Protect your lady from others, and from your own selfishness as well.
MEN SHOULD ACT AS STABILIZERS OR POLES FOR WOMEN
A pole, such as a flagpole, is straight, strong, somewhat flexible but not wishy-washy, and firmly grounded or rooted. Men need to be somewhat like this.
While the analogy is not totally accurate, it is not far from the actual structure of the male body, in relation to the female body. The male is stronger, less flexible, taller, straighter and harder to move. In contrast, the female structure is shorter, more flexible and often too much so, and more easily influenced and swayed.
When men act as poles for their women, the women are usually much happier and much healthier. Of course, there are some women who do not want a stable, straight, somewhat inflexible man in their life. They prefer a wimp whom they can manipulate. If you are this kind of woman, please think about it carefully, as the type of man you desire is not going to protect you and in most cases you will be bored with him sooner or later and regret your decision to marry him or even be involved with him at all.
