It seems that our society – at least in the U.S. – has discouraged the leadership of husbands and fathers over the last couple of decades to the point where young men are assuming that women are responsible for the wellbeing of their families. The tragedy of this is seen in the appalling poverty level of single women and children, in men gleefully impregnating several women and taking responsibility for none, and in expecting women to be able to handle everything, including earning the money. It also results in women feeling foolish and strange if they long for a strong man to provide a safe harbor for them.
Thank goodness, some of us who feel this way have finally accepted our nature and are reaping the rewards. (And when I say this I don't mean every woman feels this way!!)
