I was out walking here in Texas and saw a bull in the pasture. He was lying next to his calves whilst their mothers grazed off in the distance. The bull noticed me, stood up, and went to stand right over his newest, most vulnerable calf that was born last night. Any questions on how the male is supposed to act? Protect and provide. Every day, this bovine leads his girls and calves to the pond to drink and to the new grass to graze. He'd protect his calves with his life. If the human male you're seeing or married to doesn't do the bare minimum that a bull in the pasture would do, why are you with him? Nature makes the males prove themselves worthy to have their genes passed on. Just a good example to see that my local bull is more responsible and serious than almost every man who's ever asked me out. Don't settle for less.
