A man should be physically strong. A man has strength, endurance and temperance of steel. A man is willing to assume masculine burdens. I read that a man earns his bread by the sweat of his face. He is proud when his masculine duties are fulfilled. He delights in opportunities to serve, particularly when there are great physical demands, and shoulders this obligation, and has fun doing it.
My wife asked me to build a small raised garden in the back. I did. 2x12s and a lot of bags of top soil, compost and dirt.
I carried the dirt (shouldered them) from the driveway, through the house to the back yard. 2.5 cubic yards. 100 feet. About 45 minutes. Done quickly. Done well.
As a man does his tasks well, his woman is free to do her best at her duties, all the while assured of a strong man.
