Not long ago I met up with an old friend. I remember his parents well growing up; they were both lovely people…his mother in particular. Today, both he and his brother are 50, unmarried and childless. Both of them are nice guys…for better or worse.
Long story short, the sons have failed to give their mother the grandchildren she has been waiting for.
“How are your parents?” I asked.
“It’s sad,” he replied. “My mother criticizes my father all day. She just jabs him, insults him…it never stops.”
Red-pill summary: A wife will blame the failure of her sons on the Weltanschauung of her husband.
In her mind, it was the father’s job to teach the sons about the “facts of life”: i.e. how to successfully interact with women. It was the father’s job to teach the sons how to respond to a woman’s shit test. It was the father’s job to teach the sons how to improve their SMV. I am sure that she never phrased it as such to him. But many things with women are unspoken. As the Manosphere says, women want a man that “just gets it.”
Fathers should remember this as they raise their sons. It’s not enough to provide them with financial support. They must give them the skills necessary to manuever through the minefield of the modern dating world. If not, there could come a day when the resentment of their spouse takes the place of the missing grandchildren.
