Husbands get lower premiums because they are different creatures in terms of habits, values, behavior, and general health.This is why Golding’s is a tale not so much about the dark nature of humanity as about the isolation of the masculine from the feminine. That is hardly her only power, but it is among her most formidable. The Savior of the world chose to come to us through a wife and mother.
They began enticing marriageable young women to set out for the colonies with offers of free passage and appealing hope chests.
They supposed that wives might turn these “we’ll work tomorrow” fraternity boys into diligent, hard-working, productive men. One thing led to another, and presto: the most prosperous, hard-working nation in the history of the world.
Husbands and fathers become better, safer, more responsible and productive citizens, unrivaled by their peers in any other relational status.
Husbands become better mates, treating their wives better by every important measure—physical and emotional safety, financial and material provision, personal respect, fidelity, general self-sacrifice, etc.—compared to boyfriends, whether dating or cohabiting.
There’s also a significant difference in what boys play and what girls play.
Look in most high schools today and you’ll find most males playing football, basketball, and various contact sports.They sent an agent to investigate, and it was found that the men weren’t working.According to the report of one Sir Thomas Dale, the men were at “their daily and usuall works, bowling in the streetes.” This habit kept the settlement, Collins explains, “a long, rowdy fraternity party, minus food.” The investors’ solution?At the highest levels, female sport has little publicity and smaller crowds.The paying public has little to no desire to watch female sport. It’s about what people want and they want to see all-male teams.Not just because of women, but through the socializing power of wives and mothers.Anthropologists have long recognized that the most fundamental social problem every community must solve is the unattached male.Smaller clubs and sports clubs couldn’t accommodate this.And at the professional level where players earn millions every year, females might have to leave the sport to tend to a new-born.This is why girls should not be allowed to compete on a male sports team.f course, conservative Christians believe that women and men are not equal. Civilized people realize (even when they don’t realize they realize) that male and female are not equal. I was driven back on offering the obvious and sincere answer, “Because if I were to treat you for two minutes like a comrade, you would turn me out of the house.”So it is. This is not just a conservative or traditionalist idea.
