"Today, Men are the weaker sex" - Charly Boy

TODAYS MEN ARE THE WEAKER SEX. From my marriage counselling experience, I have come to the conclusion that most men of today are the weaker sex, at least emotionally.

How many of us can control our emotions that we resort to using our wives as punching bags, abusing alcohol, or other methods of lashing out because we are not emotionally strong enough to hold our cool.

A lot of us can't keep up with both working a full time job and managing a household, raising children to the extent that women do everyday. I know some of you would say, that's not a man's department.
