If you are a young woman of marriageable age, you might have noticed how difficult it is to find a good man who is willing to commit to marriage. It amazes me how otherwise mature and responsible men, not remotely of the playboy type, often delay marriage until their late thirties. Why, I ask myself?
Here is a comment I received from lately from a 20-something young man, a man who states he would love to become a husband and father:
"After years on the dating scene, and finding myself appalled by modern "hookup culture" it's refreshing to see that there are still traditional women like you.
I realized that I have a desire for the role of husband and father. I think, subconsciously, that's the sort of thing I've been preparing myself for all these years. A man is supposed to do the best he can for his wife (and eventually, his kids), so I've tried to make myself more physically fit, financially fit, and emotionally supportive."
However, he has…
"… trouble believing that any relationship could actually work nowadays. After seeing the ravages of divorce and the corrupt family court system affect other (usually older) men around me, I think I'd rather ride a bicycle through Iraq than get married."
Oppressed by feminism and its deteriorative effect on masculinity, he says:
"I'm glad that some women are waking up to the cultural devastation brought on by feminism. I used to buy into their ideology myself, until I realized how it was ruining a lot of lives. I can't say I hate women - I actually I think they are inherently wonderful - but I am more than a bit disappointed. Maybe one day, things will change and relationships between men and women will get better."
What do you think? I don't know about the riding a bicycle through Iraq part, but in my eyes, it is evident that we have a problem here. It isn't without a reason that young people are afraid of marriage. We have an entire generation of women who are opposed to being women and men who haven't been taught how to be men. A mature, serious young man often has trouble finding a wife when the majority of young women around him are looking for a playmate until they hit their mid-thirties.
Is it possible to restore the harmony between men and women in their unique, beautiful and separate roles? And what can we do to reinforce that?
