I'll have to go with the prosaic, allegorical interpretation on that one. Just the
stereotypical idea that women spend their lives living and understanding being part of
a dependent social network, while men spend their lives being independent and self-sufficient
and are thus less prepared for the dependency of old age. A comment on being human rather than
being Annese, I think.
