Unfortunately, some men never learn and become road kill, are skinned alive, or worse.
Divorce affects nearly 2 million people directly (and untold children, pets, etc.) each year and is the post script to 43-ish% of all US marriages. The toll increases for each subsequent marriage. For some men, they can't cope and selfishly take their own lives. For others, whose undesired behavior led to the divorce in the first place, they leave a trail of incredible pain, deep seated distrust, vitriolic anger....and often children in a fatherless home that are destined to repeat the cycle. Surely you don't need me to tell that divorce is bad news.
In the first installment of our safari, we explored both the ideal and not-so ideal comparisons between man and beast....human males and Lions. The Lion is supposed be an enduring example of the same things many men want to be associated with: virility, protection, strength, courage and royalty. But increasingly, Lions are also becoming extinct.
"Animal species disappear when they cannot peacefully orbit the center of gravity that is man."
- Pierre-Amédée Pichot
Perhaps when males (and yes, females) center our orbits on our family, our mate and our collective future, instead of our own preservation as a Lion, we will likely live a long, loving, and extinction-free existence.And isn't a long, loving and extinction-free relationship what we want out of a mate in the first place?
I hope you enjoyed the safari. Please disembark from the tour bus carefully. If you have other 'wildlife' in your life that could benefit from our findings...would you please direct them to the safari's start by clicking the email icon below or directing them to the FEED ME link to the right?

Okay then. What do you want to talk about now? :)
