About this Quote

W. Somerset Maugham's quote recommends that some men might view marriage as a method to develop a steady and secure home environment, instead of exclusively for the function of sexual fulfillment. This concept could originate from the out-of-date societal standards that expected women to preserve the domestic duties and encouraged males to focus on their careers or social status. Hence, a man might pick to marry to have a permanent place to call house and entrust the maintenance to his wife, rather than having to deal with the obligations of household upkeep himself. In addition, by being wed, a male may feel relieved from the social pressures of pursuing sexual relationships outside of marriage.
