One undergound mammal’s opinion.
A man wants…
…to be happy.
…his woman to be happy.
…his woman to be happy being with him.
Let’s go over those again.
- To be happy: he gets to lead the life he wants, that makes him feel like a man and not a cog in the system, respected by his wife and children and with time for hobbies and R&R that maintain his self-image.
- His woman to be happy: she is proud of and content with the life she has, without endless haranguing about what she doesn’t have.
- His woman to be happy being with him: she is proud to be by his side, and proud of what they have built together.
