Chirs Rock once said “Only women, children, and dogs are loved unconditionally. A man is only loved under the condition that he provides something”- Do you agree with that statement? Why or why not?

  1. Not really. It all depends on the people the man has around them.

    For example, I’m pretty confident my mother loves me unconditionally despite me not really “providing” anything in her life beyond my mere existence.

  2. Women are only loved if they’re pretty and sexually available.

    Children are loved if they are obedient.

    Even in healthy relationships, no one is loved unconditionally. Usually the conditions for love are mutual love and respect.

  3. I would disagree. Women are often only valued in society if they have children, do housework, and are young and beautiful. There’s been improvements over time, but that attitude does still exist.

    Look at the rates of divorce if a wife gets cancer and can no longer do a lot of the household tasks she normally does. Men are disproportionately likely to divorce their sick wives compared to the other way around

  4. First: there’s no such thing as “loving unconditionally”. There are necessary conditions to recognize something as a given thing. Unconditional love would be undirected at any target and would be utterly pointless.

    Dogs may love without expectation of return, maybe. But really it’s a matter of status – dogs have no problems treating other dogs lower than them on the hierarchy like garbage and demanding signs of submission from them.

    Humans, as a rule, don’t love without expectation of return. Full stop.

  5. I don’t think only men are loved conditionally. I think a lot of people love their wives, girlfriends, kids, and others conditionally.

    Healthy relationships are based on unconditional love, but lots of people have unhealthy relationships with all kinds of people.
