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.
