That’s been the joke for how long? Men don’t know what women want, women don’t know what women want. In our age of political correctness should we even be discussing what women want?
We are a pregnancy medical clinic. We see women in untimely pregnancies who are overwhelmed. It’s inevitable that when we ask about their support system the answer is usually “they will support whatever I decide because they know it’s my decision to make”. True, her body her choice…. right? That’s what we’ve all been taught. But what we really see is she needs her man to come alongside her and say “you can do this, we can do this, I will be there for you”. A real woman can do it all by herself, but a real man won’t let her.
In today’s world, that’s not a popular concept. We are women, we are strong, we are smart, we don’t need men. “Our generation is becoming so busy trying to prove that women can do what men can do that women are losing their uniqueness. Women weren’t created to do everything a man could do. Women were created to do everything a man CAN’T!”
Men are supposed to love and protect a woman not hurt and betray them. Without realizing it, when a man says to his woman, “I will support whatever decision you make”, what she hears is, “you make this decision because I don’t want to be responsible if you’re not happy in the end”. This only adds to the pressure she is feeling and it overwhelms her to think she is doing it alone. A real man sticks around. He takes responsibility for his actions and he stays dedicated to his woman. Step up and be her hero. Tell her how you feel about the pregnancy, about her, about being a father. She needs and wants to hear it.
So what do women want? They want to be loved, cherished and supported.
