When I was a young, naive fella I viewed the movie Airplane. I saw this segment,
I was a bit surprised. Of course, the older women I knew sought and got husbands, but what I had seen of the young women, they seemed to be interested in everything but husbands. This made sense at the time, as careers and fun and stuff were the obvious aspirations. Even though the movie was a comedy, it struck me hard that young women actually wanted husbands, and viewed women with such as lucky.
Of course, not much of use was explained to me. There was no web. The Overton Window was clearly such that the truth (if known) would never be mentioned in the mainstream media of polite company. It is easy enough to confuse young people when they don’t even realize that alternatives exist. Moreover, even logical alternatives. That is why the Overton Window never budged.
So yes, young women wanted husbands, maybe not now (go away young man), but sometime in the future. Furthermore, he was to have means and make her tingle. The first part was common knowledge, but not so much the second.
That is the gist of it. Simple really.
