In order to have a long-term relationship, men should refrain from asking their partners what they bring to the table, according to American TV personality Steve Harvey.
He believes it is improper for the current generation of young men to inquire about the contributions that women make.
“A woman can make another you, it’s our job to take care of a woman and some children,” he said.
In an interview with Black Millionaires, Steve asserted that males should look out for women rather than the other way around.
“That is what is wrong with this generation today, the young boys today, what does she bring to the table? What the hell do you mean man? What does your ass bring to the table? You got a woman that can come to the table that can make another you, what else that she need to slide up to the table with? What about your job? What happened to men that were supposed to be responsible? Do you know it is our (Men) to take care of women, children, and our family? That is our damn job” he said.
Harvey is a part of a larger discussion about women’s issues, gender equality, and the place of women in interpersonal relationships and society at large.
Many people contend that women should be valued for their character, values, and other intangible traits that make them good partners rather than just for their capacity to contribute financially or in other material ways.
In general, Harvey’s counsel urges men to change the way they think about and approach relationships, putting meaningful connections with women first rather than adhering to conventional gender norms or expectations.
