Michael Bolton - When a Man Loves a Woman
22 Dec Sometimes, we are under the impression that strong women can make it on their own. But there are reasons why strong women need men, including men not being the enemy and everyone needing someone to inspire strength in them. 9 Nov As a marriage counsellor working with men and women in relationship crisis, I help clients navigate numerous issues. While many situations are complex, there's one profoundly simple truth that men need to know: Women leave men they love. They feel terrible about it. It tears their heart out of them. 10 Jan Pondering all of this, I had to acknowledge a double standard I had never considered before while we generally embrace the concept that men need the support and influence of women to be their best selves, it has become “politically incorrect” to admit that women need men. I was raised in the very heart.
Most men know how much they grow in terms of maturity and happiness, as well as ethically, psychologically and even professionally after they marry. But since the beginning of the feminist movement, it has become less and less common for well-educated women to acknowledge that a woman needs a man.
Michael Bolton - When a Man Loves a Woman
Women used to need men for their incomes, the feminist argument goes, but with women now capable of earning a living on their own, men are just not that necessary. Not even as fathers. Two generations of women have been told over and over at college — as well as by their feminist mothers and, increasingly, their feminist fathers — that a successful career should be their goal. Marriage to a man is secondary. If a woman really wants children one day, it is very easy to have them without having a man in her life, let alone being married to one.
I regularly ask young women usually 18 to 25 years of age: The responses are evenly divided.
Do women need men?
What is particularly instructive is that the more educated the woman — that is, the more time she has spent being indoctrinated at a university, the more likely she is to choose the guarantee of a great career. For two generations of educated women, it has been deemed a sign of weakness to admit to preferring marriage over career.
Single women seeking men: Wanting a man to love and cherish is simply one of the many reasons we exist and why life is so special. I need a man who can work an electric drill and knows what a rawlplug is, Jane writes. Men are good at helping you zip up tricky party dresses.
As one female psychotherapist put it in Time magazine: While some women are happy never to have married, this feminist thinking has produced a lot of unhappy women. Many never-married women acknowledge in midlife that they were sold a bill of goods: And more than a few other women without men are simply angry. You can see their anger in the disproportionate number of women leading and participating in protests for every imaginable cause.
It would seem that they have channeled their unhappiness into anger at society. It is probably not a coincidence that Black Lives Matter, as angry a group as exists in America today, was founded by three single women.

More importantly for society, they also are the most mature women, just as married men are widely, if not universally, regarded as likely to be more mature than single men.

The happiest women are women in happy marriages. Just ask happily married women to compare their happiness now with their happiness when they were happy and single.
More importantly for society, they also are the most mature women, just as married men are widely, if not universally, regarded as likely to be more mature than single men.
So, too, men who have never married also are likely to be particularly angry.
Let me offer an example. Guess which subject garners the most angry and even hate-filled comments, by far?
They are the videos advocating that men marry. Many single men literally curse us for releasing such videos. At least with regard to the 97 percent of the population that is heterosexual, it is simply a truism that men need a woman and women need a man.
Here feminism has told generations of women that the latter statement is nonsense is one of the saddest, and most harmful, developments of the modern era. Given the number of Jews who have attended college and graduate school, and the high esteem in which they therefore hold feminism, many Jewish readers will dismiss the thesis of this column.
I have a question for these individuals: Should we drop the second?
