We're on the same page, a point was that when you have kids you're always on the defensive and all your attention is on protecting your family. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but I believe women today are not quite yet accepting of what's coming and are still choosing lovey-dovey husbands with which they can be 'equals'.This is what I do to protect my family. Everything else, is in Gods hands.
If you go to third world countries which I'm sure you have, the beautiful women all have strong, masculine men and are submissive in a way rarely seen in the West today. When things get harder in the near future these men will be in high demand, and I'll get the woman I deserve.
There is no need to settle if you're young and masculine; that was the message. Know your worth, weigh your options, take your time.
