Do woman need family more than men?Page 2 of 2    (1, 2)
aw cheese! Here ya, lazy f'tards:
http://www.allacademic.com//meta/p_mla_apa_research_citation/1/0/9/7/3/pages109737/p109737-1.php

From the abstract:
"Comparing the responses of men and women, this paper examines attitudes about the importance of marriage and parenthood for men and women. Using data from the National Survey of Families and Households (1992-94), we show that according to these respondents, women 'need' children more than men do and men 'need' marriage more than women do."

So, YET AGAIN, a man (OP) is trying to paint women as somehow "bad" and "man-haters", implying that they don't "need" men, when this says nothing of the sort.

I'm impressed with how much chat can be generated by a poorly worded, unsubstantiated claim about men and women, which uses poorly chosen words like "need," and undefined terms like "family." It certainly set a lot of people off.
My own response is: balderdash. "All things considered even?" What things? What does even mean? What does "need" mean?
And "what if the situation was forced?" What situation? Forced?
BALDERDASH!

I think it depends on the woman. Some women I know have a man and no kids. Others have the reverse. Some women choose their new boyfriend over their kids. Some women would rather kick the boyfriend to the kerb.

But I gather than many women think the kids are more reliable in giving love, as they've been trained from birth. Doesn't always work out like that. But I feel sure that more men love their mothers than their ex-wives.

Well, commissioners & judges sure think so. No, imo they don't.

Did you know single men die younger? We play harder and eat worse without a family to help keep us in line.
