Are men Able to withstand temptations better than women?
"Not a human being that ever lived could wish to be loved better than I was loved; and him who thus loved me..." a quote from from Jane Eyre written by the one and only Charlotte Bronte, men cannot withstand temptations, proved to us by the quote about how he fell in love with the vibrant and beautiful Jane Eyre; for those whom have read the book would know that he is still married and his wife is locked away inside the house.
Yes I have chosen to go against my own gender, but it is all true; the male race is filled with ambiguous words and emotions, not even we know exactly how we feel about someone. "There is something interesting about the the topic of sex" quoted from The Dangerous Passion, in turn of all words in life, the word temptation brings up lust and sex, and always involves love, lust, marriage, sex and affairs; which has now turned any kind of temptation into something so cliché. Men have needs, of course; but does this driving need lead to you cheating on your spouse? It shouldn't. Most Divorces are from unfaithful male men cheating on their wives, whereas a woman would stay true to her spouse. I suppose it all depends on your morals, values and always boils down to knowing who you really are, which surfaces the word 'Loyalty'.
"People are constantly risking things such as, status, reputation, honor, marriage, children and even personal safety for a love affair." quoted from The Dangerous Passion, these temptations could range from wanting to buy something as simple as chocolate to lust and sometimes even death. The topic of temptations is brought up anywhere, even in religion. "Recognizing temptations and deceptions... the tremendous social and psychological cost continues to mount... It is better to find out before you are married whether you are compatible" from the Aaronic Priesthood Manuel, which raises a good point, know your fiancé before you commit, next thing you know you are in bed with another woman, running the meaning of love.
"The male movie buff will probably answer the fruit card..... And women have been able to find jobs more easily than men..... It is a fact, learned from my criminal psychology professor." from Roger Ebert's Journal. Yes, men do fall for the alluring ways of temptations; however, women are brilliant 'temptators'.
