These are the words of Julian, a husband, a father, to her wife on why women should not get irritated with him. This is a prime example of a patriarchal man. Contemptible words, yet somehow, are sadly true. How did his wife, Amanda, respond? She rolled her eyes, but she kept quiet.

This shows the suffering of a typical woman experienced in our country back then and still even in a lot of homes today, she is expected to become a housewife, nothing more. She is boxed, her growth as an individual stunted, she is not given a chance.
