Question: Has there ever been a family model in which men and women were equal partners?
Answer: Men and women can be equal partners either in a primitive society where they clearly know their duties, are close to nature, and perform naturally what is given to them by nature.
Or when they, having gone through all the furnace of hell that we went through in our history, reach complete disappointment in what we have done in this world, in the family, with ourselves, with children, and come to the conclusion that we still need to learn from nature how to create a society, family, and the relationship between children and parents based on it.
And then we will need Kabbalah, that explains how to create the right communication in the family, in society, and in the world.
