Our expert says:
Leaving aside the specifics of the Masons themselves as an organization, there are many other organizations and acivities to which some people, especially men it seems, get too devoted and give far too much time, to the detriment of their marriage and family.
I've seen the same thing with Rotary and many other groups. I sometimes wonder whether guys with low self-esteem feel good about bonding in such a group ( which is usuall adept at ego boosting ) and the "charity" and "fund-raising" activities give them a warm feeling and help them feel all their time spent on this rather than family duties, is justified.
And in some cases there can come to be an almost cult element in the devotion they show to the organization to the exclusion of their other duties in life.
