Why Do Husbands Always Get The Blame ?

The full question was " Why Do Husbands Always Get The Blame When Something Happens In The Family ? "

This was the question posed by a male reader who wrote to the forum page of a local newspaper recently. The reader claimed that he was dismayed by another male reader 's earlier suggestion on " Take Harsher Stand Against Errant Husbands ".

Other interesting posers include:

  • Why are women always right ?

  • What about men's rights ? and

  • What do we call errant wives, and where should we consign such wives ?

To me, the stands posed by both men ( surprisingly ) involved serious and sensitive issues that many of us would prefer to delve on during private conversations.

I regret that nobody else picked up on the issues, otherwise we ( men and women ) could avail ourselves of the opportunities to better understand the current situation involving men's and women's rights.

Sex and adultery seems to be the most sensitive topics within the marriage. We seem to have many misconceptions in these areas. For eg. I don't think men want polygamy. For a start, how many men can earn enough to support so many wives and children? And if the top 10% of men have just 2 wives, it means that there will not be enough women for the bottom 10% of men to marry (assuming equal gender distribution). see short story on this topic : King's Madness at
