I posted a blog on my site some time ago about how men are a major contributor to many of the relationship issues that we are reaping in today’s society. It is because of our (men’s) selfish choices of making babies and not maturing/parenting these children that has led us to such a significant amount of instability and drama in modern-day relationships.
Imagine if casual sex had minimized/stopped in the early 1980’s and 90’s and men remained a part of the family household. Would we have the same issues many of the sons and daughters are now experiencing in relationships today? Most likely not! Here are a couple of the outcomes in the lives of women that could have been avoided if fathers had been present and active in their lives…
Back to the main topic at hand…here are a couple questions I recently had a young lady pose to me:
1. How do women who were raised in fatherless household view relationships?
2. Do they seek companionship from a man to fill voids? Once they learned that God is their father, for those who have made this decision, did it change the way they look at men?
Of course I have my personal thoughts on each of the above questions, but will resist the temptation of responding prematurely. If you are a woman who grew up in a fatherless household, your perspective is definitely solicited. If you know of either positive or negative stories because of a fatherless environment, please post your responses. I am interested in your experiences because I believe they can assist someone who may have gone through something similar.
