Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp talked Thursday about the need for husbands to step up and become “real men” — because their children need them, and their wives are “desperately looking for a husband” during a speech at the March for Marriage in Washington D.C. The Kansas Republican is one of the House’s most conservative members.
“I wanna close with this, a message to every man in America, every man in this crowd, every husband in America,” Huelskamp said. “Your children need you. Your woman, your wife, she needs you. It’s time that you become a real man and stand up for those that need you. Love your family, love your wife, love your children because they desperately need you. They’re desperately looking for a husband. They’re desperately looking for a father. Be a real man of God, because this is about you. Marriage is about you, and your wife, and your children.”
