A question I received: Why do women feel depressed more than men? And is it really so, or do people just think so because women are quicker to turn to a psychologist than men? And is it true that a woman needs a man?
My Answer: Men, like children, have more opportunities in this world to “play” than a woman does. This is why women are depressed more often than men. A man feels more satisfied with the superficial aspects of a relationship, whereas a woman feels more satisfaction from feelings. This also makes men less dependent.
The Talmud says that a woman would give up 90% of her wealth for a heartfelt connection with a man, but a man would only give up 10%. In other words, a woman is 90% satisfied through feelings and a man is 90% satisfied through the body.
