The political, social, and economic status of women varies from culture to culture and from a region to another region. These factors determine the preoccupations, duties, and anything they undertake. Therefore, we should be very specific when we want to ascribe any attributes to women.

She is considerate regarding noise, working hours (not her, of course) and so on, and she said that she had installed facilities on the site with considerable financial cost to him on the understanding that she would have a substantial long lease.

In fact, we should take into consideration that there is not one typical woman, but there are several types, characters, and personalities of women.

Oldfashioned, anachronic. This man comes from an era when a lot of women were forced to be with someone (a man) in order to be respected by society. I think that's why he says love is the study and business of women's lives.

Fortunately that's irrelevant now.

As for the forumer who said women are better at love than men, I think that's simply a fantasy. There is no gender better than the other about that even though each gender might have special qualities and inconveniences overall.

Context from: BRACEBRIDGE HALL

ANNETTE DELARBRE

That very evening Eugene saw her, full of gayety, dancing with one of his rivals; and as her eye caught his, fixed on her with unfeigned distress, it sparkled with more than usual vivacity. It was a finishing blow to his hopes, already so much impaired by secret distrust. Pride and resentment both struggled in his breast, and seemed to rouse his spirit to all its wonted energy. He retired from her presence, with the hasty determination never to see her again.

A woman is more considerate in affairs of love than a man; because love is more the study and business of her life. Annette soon repented of her indiscretion; she felt that she had used her lover unkindly; she felt that she had trifled with his sincere and generous nature—and then he looked so handsome when he parted after their quarrel—his fine features lighted up by indignation. She had intended making up with him at the evening dance; but his sudden departure prevented her. She now promised herself that when next they met she would amply repay him by the sweets of a perfect reconciliation, and that, thenceforward, she would never— never tease him more! That promise was not to be fulfilled. Day after day passed—but Eugene did not make his appearance. Sunday evening came, the usual time when all the gayety of the village assembled—but Eugene was not there. She inquired after him; he had left the village. She now became alarmed, and, forgetting all coyness and affected indifference, called on Eugene's mother for an explanation. She found her full of affliction, and learnt with surprise and consternation that Eugene had gone to sea.
