Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), said, "Treat women well. The woman was created from a rib. The most bent part of the rib is the top part. If you try to straighten it, you will break it. If you leave it, it remains bent. So treat women well." [Agreed upon]

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
