Today, men are perhaps not needed for women to be happy or successful. They seem to know what they want and how to get it no matter the challenges they get to face.
Have women changed from what we remember them to be from back in the day? If they have, then are men the cause of that change?
Men need to know that the women of yester-years are far different from the modern day or urban women.
1.) They are getting more independent
Maybe they are even more independent than men think they are. Women want to be on their own, handle their issues, make their own money and run their lives. Some women will even say marriage is no longer necessary to have babies and women don't need to get married in order to be loved and respected in the society. This has generally affected the age at which women used to marry then and now. Well, because other top women have made it singular, others are inspired to take care of themselves first before anyone else.
2.) They are materialistic
Just because most women now are more independent, they tend to under-mind the financial power of a man. An urban woman wants to have the best clothes, shoes, cars, houses, hair, nails etc and have somehow stopped to care about the most important thing in life that they need - love - and have substituted that with the material things they just want.
3.) They are more expressive
Gone are the days when our mothers, grandmas and great-grandmas used to shot up when the men are talking . Today's woman damns the consequences when she's going for what she wants. Wives talk back at their husbands and female employees boldly ask for pay raise. Young girls are not afraid to ask for more in their relationships and don't think twice to jet off the affair.
