May 14 20 Iyar Torah Portion. Ben is sensitive and tries hard to please Miriam, but when there's a problem that needs to be dealt with, he seems oblivious.
When she asks for input on a decision, he says, "It's up to you. I understand why Ben is unsure of his role. Like a lot of men these days, I received so many messages on what a man in a relationship should be, I was bewildered. Every few years, the media tells us new ideas about what a man should be.
For a while there was "sensitive new age guy. I've heard married men advise younger men that the key to a happy marriage is: "Yes, dear. Wine matures. On television, we've gone from Father Knows Best , where the father was a wise caring man who could do no wrong, to Homer Simpson, a buffoon who can do nothing right. Does Homer actually influence what people think a man should be? In a recent survey in Canada by the research firm Ipsos-Reid, more than 25 percent of fathers aged 18 to 34 identify with Homer Simpson when they're talking to their kids about a difficult subject, and almost 20 percent of adult children in the same age range associate their own father with Homer.
With so many confusing ideas, I started looking for wisdom on what a man should be in a relationship. I read books on marriage. They didn't say anything to me. I read Jewish books on marriage. They had a lot of wisdom, but I was looking for more advice on what a man should be. Then I went to the original Jewish sources. I started with Adam -- the first man in the world who was in a relationship. Adam was alone. He wanted a wife. He asked God for a wife and God created Eve to be an "ezer k'negdo" -- a helper opposing him or a helper against him Genesis, A helper against him?
What in the world does that mean? I looked in the commentary at the bottom of the page which quoted the Talmud, "If the man is worthy, the woman will be his helper; if he is not worthy, she will be against him. This one sentence changed the way I looked at relationships. The message: It's up to the man to make it work.
It's his responsibility. Stop blaming others. If a man works on himself and develops himself to be worthy, the woman will be his partner. If he doesn't, she will be against him. What happens next in the world's first relationship? Adam and Eve are in the Garden of Eden.
They have one commandment: Don't eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. Eve eats it and then she gives it to Adam. He eats it. Then Adam hides in the bushes and God asks him: Adam did you eat the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge that I commanded you not to eat? I couldn't believe it.
He gave in to something he knew was wrong and then he blamed his wife. I thought only men today did that. Does blaming his wife help Adam avoid responsibility? God doesn't say, "Adam, I understand -- she pushed you into it.
You're not responsible for what happened. He punishes Adam for eating the fruit, and for not using his own judgment. I think it's significant that one of the first lessons in the first chapter of Genesis is about what a man should be in a relationship. My search led me to discover a lot of timeless wisdom that for generations fathers taught their sons -- wisdom that is so relevant today.
Today's absent father, either from long hours of work or divorce, means many boys grow up without a strong male role model. Here are five of the lessons I learned on my journey for wisdom on what a man in a relationship should be:. Learn from Adam.
Don't do things you know are wrong and then blame others. If you make a mistake, take responsibility for your actions. One of the meanings of the word "husband" is someone who skillfully manages his household.
A manager takes responsibility. As Adam experienced, there is little sympathy for a man who blames a woman for something that has gone wrong. He's often still held responsible. People will ask him, "Why did you let it go on?
If a man wants to be seen as worthy and have a good relationship with a woman, he has to show leadership. When he sees a situation that needs to be dealt with, he should step forward and handle it. People admire those who step forward to handle difficult situations. We don't admire those who stand back and wait for others to solve the problem.
Some men avoid taking the lead because they don't want to be criticized. They think they're playing it safe. A man should say, "I'll handle it," and take the initiative to find solutions. If he's not sure what the solution is, do what other leaders do -- consult the many sources of information available. One of the meanings of the word "manly" is being decisive.
A man needs to make decisions and take responsibility for the outcome. If he's reluctant to make decisions, she may resent him. Part of making decisions is understanding the other person's views and being flexible. She doesn't want someone controlling her, but she also doesn't want someone who leaves every decision to her. A man who is afraid of making a wrong decision should ask himself: Who should make decisions? The Talmud asks: Who is strong?
He who can control his passions Ethics of the Fathers, Someone who can control his anger is better than a physically strong man who can conquer a city. Blowing up in anger can seriously damage a relationship. If a man thinks he can't control his anger, he should imagine being angry at someone, the telephone rings and it's his boss.
Would he calm down? Of course, or he'd lose his job. Not getting angry doesn't mean he accepts bad treatment; he calmly sets limits on the treatment he accepts from others. Being manly is not being macho. Manliness is the positive qualities of decisiveness, strength in one's convictions, confidence, self-reliance, high moral qualities, self discipline, honesty and integrity.
A man who is manly has courage to be able to deal with difficulty, pain or danger without backing away despite his fear. To women: ask your husband to read this. To men: If after years of watching Homer Simpson, you haven't heard these ideas before, ask your wife if this is what she wants. You may be surprised at her response. IYAYA who helped me brought back my husband back with me and now he loves me far more than ever am so happy with life now thank you so much Dr.
My spouse was full of rage He even got arrested on Shabbas due to his anger!! First and foremost God told Adam not Eve.. He was to pass it on to his wife. Now once she ate the forbidden fruit I'm sure Adam thought twice about eating the deadly fruit but because He loved Eve so much he was willing to die with her than rather be alone Too me God must of looked at this and made an atonement for them by offering a sin offering Thus failure is not final He is a merciful God.
Awesome read and well written. God bless. We need to teach to teach males to become men! Elliott Katz , November 25, PM.
Relationship Advice—From Men
Men want love as badly as women do. They just might not always be as obvious about it. But generally, they want the same thing: friendship, companionship, chemistry. So why is there so much confusion and miscommunication between the sexes? Some have been handed down through the generations.
Talk to us. I have discovered a stark contrast between what each sex thinks the opposite sex wants from them and what the opposite sex really does want. What women think men want from them often causes women to have resentment and anger toward men, and feel hopeless about ever developing a wonderful, warm, romantic partnership. What men think women want from them often causes them much of the same feelings and frustration.

Dating Tips for Finding the Right Person
When it comes to dating and relationships, I often find myself wondering how certain people end up with others. To help clarify, I have put together this list of how a good man should act while in a relationship:. The man in their life does not make them feel loved, wanted, or appreciated. This is a profoundly important piece of the puzzle: a good man will always remind you how much you mean to him.
There are many different things that women need from men in a relationship, but some of the most important things are:. As you can see from the list above, what she really needs is for you be someone that she can rely on, look up to and remain happy to be in love with. The main thing to remember is that, as long as you are guiding both you and her into deeper feelings of respect, attraction and love over time, everything else on the list above will happen naturally. Essentially, what women need from men in a relationship is to feel that she can respect him and look up to him. When a woman feels respect for her man, attraction will follow and will then grow into love.
We’re here for you.
Are you single and looking for love? Are you finding it hard to meet the right person? Life as a single person offers many rewards, such as being free to pursue your own hobbies and interests, learning how to enjoy your own company, and appreciating the quiet moments of solitude. For many of us, our emotional baggage can make finding the right romantic partner a difficult journey. Perhaps you grew up in a household where there was no role model of a solid, healthy relationship and you doubt that such a thing even exists. You could be attracted to the wrong type of person or keep making the same bad choices over and over, due to an unresolved issue from your past.
Men are often reluctant to talk about their needs in intimate relationships. We need frequent reassurance about ourselves, our career paths, our efficacy as partners, our sexual prowess , and our attractiveness among other things. I have countless male clients telling me every month that their partners rarely let them know what they like about them.
