I saw an interesting–no–a very interesting Thriller episode (“Child’s Play”), written by Robert Dozier (1960), where a couple considering separation made clear a number of Red Pill themes.  Should a man sacrifice his mission in order to please his wife?  Should children and a wife be grateful to a man who works for to put food on the table and a roof over their heads?  Should a husband try to explain his work to his wife?  How much attention should a husband give a wife?  What are the husband’s responsibilities on the home front?  Can a wife step overboard in attempting to direct her husband’s attention to problems?  What about a housewife’s boredom?  How should a wife interact with her husband when she perceives a problem?  Is a wife at fault for hiding her son’s misbehavior from her husband?

Throughout the skit the wife was submissive and deferential and the man held his frame.  It was a display of how a couple could interact in a patriarchal context with successful outcomes and relationship-building.

tl;dr  A man’s mission comes first, but he has to put some effort towards teaching his adolescent children about life and he has a responsibility to be romantic towards his wife (to “put her in the mood”), and a wife has a duty to remain submissive towards her husband and to not be so demanding of his attention that his mission is ever jeopardized.
