Women are always at the losing end
Yes, as some people would imply, if anything happens, women are always at the losing end. But one would question how this phrase could come about in the dictionary of phrases. In other words, why is it that when something breaks apart a relationship or marriage, women are the losers, and not men?
Let us go in depth into the phrase.
A man’s principal responsibility towards the woman is to support her, both financially and emotionally. He is best regarded as the stronger person who provides shelter from life’s stormy weather, and pretty much has a say in everything. So time after time, he may begin to realize that he has the power to do anything he wants and come what may, he would make certain that the woman would always stoop to his demands.
A woman’s responsibility, on the other hand, is to be the one to fill her man’s life with love and care, and most of the time be the water to put out the fire in him. As time goes by, she could end up being a slave for her man because when a woman loves a man, she would do anything for him, even at the expense of her happiness. She would cast aside herself only for him.
So what happens when the man asks for a break up, or files for a divorce? What consequences would the women have to put up with? And most importantly, would the women become the ultimate losers in this kind of matter?
Yes, they would.
Here is one example that can most clearly justify the answer to the questions. If there is a child involved in the entire picture, whether legitimate or illegitimate, he would not feel the obligation to take care of his child as much as the woman, because he was not the one who carried the child.
When he walks across the streets, no one would be able to tell that he is someone’s father. But as for the woman, she carried the child and she would be looked down on by her family, friends and the society, if she turns out to be an irresponsible mother to the child.
It is even worse if she got pregnant even before marriage. Imagine all the trouble she would have to undergo all by herself just because of her man’s doings. Doesn’t that make women the losers in a broken relationship or marriage? Isn’t the phrase ‘women are always at the losing end’ applicable to this? It is a thought provoking one.
On the contrary, the phrase is not applicable to all couples. For some, the women would triumph and the men would tumble and fall. This can happen especially when the women tend to take control of the relationship or marriage rather than the men. Such women are normally categorized as those who are more highly educated and come from richer and more powerful families, compared to their men.
Hence, they would take advantage of those facts to dominate everything and even decide things for the men. For such cases, the poor men are the ones at the losing end and being left to feel the constant intimidation towards their women.
All you fellow couples, whether married or still in the courting period, it is never good to make one of the parties at the losing end. The phrase may have seemed to be directing more to the women, but to us, we feel that both the man and woman should not emerge as losers.
Men should provide the women the true love and support. It is pointless to be earning loads of cash when you cannot even show how much you treasure them in your lives. As for the women, you may be well-educated and coming from a highly respected group of people, but always remember that you are women, and while taking pride in what you have achieved, you should never forget to give your love and respect to your men.
