>>>I believe that most women would also let their husbands die in order to save their child. Both parents become second class citizens when a baby is involved. The baby belongs to both of them, and is part of both of them, and is the future of both of them. Breeding partners can be replaced.<<<

Interesting point, but I'm not so sure.
It all tells me human males are least invested in their female partner, more invested in their progeny, and mostly invested in themselves, while females have a deep bond to the child via proximity during gestation and the early stages, and have found a higher success rate by keeping dad in the picture.

Didn't you just end by confirming that both parents are more invested in the child than in each other?
