“Something *I’d* like to see from Cill and his family is the corresponding information from his female relatives post. It takes 2 to tango, and now that we have been let in on the How To Be A Good Wife* of such overwhelmingly successful marriages, it’d be awesome to have a writeup of How To Be A Good Husband.” * (see “Wisdom of the Ages“)
A full answer would be too much for a comment and not enough for a post. Tarn, the boys did not receive as much gender education as the girls did. The mothers felt that :
- Girls are more urgently in need of gender education than boys are, because girls are inherently more susceptible to gender group-bias and hypergamy.
- The wisdom of the past female ancestors (Wisdom of the Ages) was intended more for the girls than the boys.
- Nowadays, women have fallen further than men have. Girls are more in need of instruction in how to be of value to the opposite sex.
My mother did instruct me as to the perils of feminism and the dangers of associating with modern women. She always made it clear that living a life without women was a viable option for men, the percentage of suitable women being so small. After the tragedy of my uncles, she said I should now be aware of the dangers of associating with women at all. Otherwise she left it to my father to instruct us in matters of gender and sex. Dad had no male equivalent of Wisdom of the Ages to hand on to his sons, but he gave us basic advice and always gave our questions his full attention.
