"When a man gets up to speak, people listen, then look. When a woman gets up, people look; then, if they like what they see, they listen."
A man alone is not a unit of society - nor a woman alone. It requires two. Reason alone, or feeling alone, is not enough for important decisions. It requires both.
A man's best fortune, or his worst, is his wife. Ditto for the wife's husband.

"And Adam said: "This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man." Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
