2. The Way of Man and Woman

In a society, there first must be a Way governing relationships between a man and a woman. The Way of man and woman involves first mutual respect. A man and a woman, by not neglecting the etiquette of mutual respect, will be respectful of each other’s character. Second is discretion. When a man and a woman are associating with each other, they must be fair and proper so as not to harm sound morals. Third is concession and cooperation. Men and women should work for the construction of a vibrant society by displaying the magnanimity of mutual concession and the virtue of cooperation.
