If a wife isn’t in her twenties, she’s not a trophy wife and she shouldn’t act like one. That sounds like a stupid assertion. Doesn’t it?
In the history of the world, no civilization has been so mean to aging as this one. In this youth-obsessed culture, people are so uncool after 35 they might as well don’t exist. In that realm, no one is a trophy of any kind beyond 30s and they shouldn’t try to cross over either.
Necessity shapes the mindset and conditions of people. While every life is a special one, we’re all the same in that the balance of good vs. bad shapes what’s necessary to us. When we begin to think what’s necessary, we implicitly shape our system of reasoning. That can ultimately result in sacrificing some of the values we all once endorsed such as respect, perspective, and wisdom.
