    Actually women are expected to protect their children while men are expected to protect their partner and their children. In a way both sexes are have certain protective duties that society puts on to them. Regardless of what people think of social roles they don't just come out of no where and to the most part they're based on real world application of the ideas in question to put forward the best situation possible for the parties involved. To call for the same standards is basically ignoring why the standards exist to begin with which might very well be reasonable.

    He is trying to find someone to tell him he is justified in running away and leaving his girlfriend/future wife to her fate.
    How very....sad...for him. And anyone with him.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

If she would rather have me dead then her get raped and we both survive... then she can divorce me all she wants.

    The only one I see a problem with is the middle one because it doesn't make any sense.

    I guess a lot of men think their wife and their children would be far better off without him. How knows? They could be right about that.

    You missed the entire point, based on that comment.

    if a perp breaks into my house, he had better hope the wife isn't home and he has only me to face... the intruders odds of surviving the ordeal increase dramatically if she isn't involved.
