Wifely dues were something the husband wanted but the wife didn’t particularly like.I also heard from the platform and from people at the Hall how it was not good for a man to be alone; that he needed a wife to satisfy his sexual needs.My understanding was that men love sex, and the “love” they feel for a woman or even their kids—I still marvel over fathers who WANT to play with their kids—was more of an ownership kind of love – like they’d love their car, TV, or fishing pole.

One of the guys in the group looked at me in horror, and said, “Maaan, you are cold and heartless, men have feelings too.” “Whaaa? ” He went on to say that men had feelings and I was just breaking hearts, and how cruel I was. It took over six months for me to come up with a list of twenty-five things – not an easy assignment.
