Do men benefit more from relationships than women? Well, let’s see.
Women cook, clean, do the laundry, shop for the home, take care of the children, often work outside the home and, take care of their spouses. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this one out – but keep reading to find out if our answers match.
Men gain more from marriage than women do because married men are happier and healthier than their single counterparts. Married men may earn more and are likely to be in the top one percent of earnings.
Surprisingly, unhappy marriages tend to be good for men, too, because they still have the advantages of married life. In contrast, unhappy marriages have a significantly stronger influence on women’s health than on men’s.
Men who stay married are better off financially than their single or divorced colleagues. Married men who have working partners that contribute to the home, save more money.
According to the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development, men work around the home an average of 17.5 hours per week while women contribute an extra 28.4 hours of unpaid labor.
What marriage means to a woman
Maybe you believe that a successful marriage is one in which both partners respect one another, have an active sex life, and accomplish marriage goals like owning a home, parenthood, and retirement.
Nowadays, women “Drunk in Love” want a prosperous marriage based on BFF-level companionship, intellectual stimulation, emotional support, an infinite supply of roses, laughter, and a banging sex life (excuse the pun). Some people wonder if this relationship even exists. Thank goodness, it does!
But check this out:
In the US, nearly 70 percent of women are likely first to file for divorce. Women who were once marriage-minded are now in a hurry to leave their husbands.
When you think about marriage and relationships, men typically count on women to keep them in line like their mother’s would. This is why women say being married to the wrong man is like having a child. If this is true, then how does marriage benefit a woman? Do they want to practice their parenting skills before actually having children? I think not! When a woman marries a man, she wants an adult.
Men prefer women who have order because they lack organization. Most women have more structure than men, but this attribute makes women less tolerable of abuse and laziness. The man will have to have some get-up-and-go about himself or be gone. Point blank, simple.
Our great-grandmothers and grandmothers stayed in marriages through all the mental and physical abuse. They stayed through addictions, cheating, and ‘outside’ children, but not us.
Not the new gen. But our grandmothers and our mother’s mother were the same people who refused to move and led thousands through tunnels and survived holocausts, so they were very strong individuals. I’m not saying the new generation isn’t as strong, but the game and the players have changed.
But the bottom line is they remained a couple and eventually celebrated many years together, even commemorating their 60th or 70th wedding anniversaries. However and I digress, you can’t do that if you quit your marriage. But is it worth it just to say you made it?
How can a woman benefit a man?
Women, whether she is single, married, or divorced, realize they don’t have to endure abuse anymore, and they leave, but to answer the ultimate question, we provided these answers.
Men want love and affection
Since women are nurturers, you may think she is the emotional creature and wants that attachment in a relationship or physical touch, and they do, but not as much as men. Sorry, not sorry. Don’t believe it’s true? Check out this ABC News report.
Women cook and clean
Some women do everything to run their households, and very few men take an interest in cooking and cleaning the home. But before you go in on me, let it be know that some men do it better than their counterparts. Yes, indeed, so let me give you a standing ovation. But in today’s society, women go to work and some men are stay-at-home dads. It makes sense in a lot of situations. Still, when you think about a woman’s unpaid labor and her career, men benefit more from relationships than women.
Relationships are more flexible
Sex is not a big deal anymore and this is apparent as relationships don’t have clear titles anymore. They come with attachments that can have devasting consequences. If you are among the myriad of men and women who indulge in entanglements, polyamory relationships, and any other kind of ship sailing their way, you run the risk of losing someone very important in your life.
Men benefit from an in-home therapist
Men are the biggest gossipers, but they do not always talk to other guys about how they feel about stuff. They talk to their wives. They trust their wives with these stories and emotions while men should be bonding with other men. Women almost always have a logical outlet because men don’t listen.
Do single women expect too much of marriage?
Due to their dominance in marital relationships, men cannot be best friends, partners, psychologists, cheerleaders, and co-managers simultaneously. Even the most admirable men gain more from marriage than women do. Unfortunately, some women only realize this after a divorce.
So yes, women expect a lot from men, and have a greater commitment to the union, but men benefit more from relationships than women. Our personal opinion is that women learned to tolerate marital conflict and the imperfections of their men so they can celebrate their 40th anniversary like their grandmothers.
