Prayers of A Good Hearted Woman

BFB211127 A Young Woman Looks Out Her Window
For as long as men have sought good times over quiet homes, good-hearted women have quietly waited for them to come home, and fervently prayed for them to come to their senses. (Photo by Nenad Stojkovic, August 31, 2017, via Flickr.) 

When God said it is not good for man to be alone, was He thinking that men might benefit from female companionship, or that they might not survive without it?

[1] Chanukah is sundown December 10 to sundown December 18. Since Chanukah is the Feast of Dedication (or Rededication) of the Temple, the customary reading is Numbers 7:1-8:4 (read in portions over the eight days of the feast), which tells of Israel’s offerings at the dedication of the Tabernacle. December 12, the Shabbat during Chanukah, has a special reading from Zechariah 2:10-4:7, the prophet’s vision of the menorah in the heavenly Temple. Also, it is customary in synagogues to read Numbers 7:1-8:4 in portions over all eight days. This passage relates the dedication of the altar in the Tabernacle.
