A love-devoid circumcised society

Rachel didn't fare any different. While Jacob loved her deeply, she didn't love herself. She felt inferior for not bearing children, and envied her sister with a growing hatred. Thus she was stuck in a similar denial of the fullness of God's creation.

It appears that the Jacob story was written for a more-deeply underlying purpose than to illustrate the dimensions of the marriage covenant. The Jacob story ends with a shock that exposes the dynamics of a love-devoid circumcised society, which of course has its debilitating impact on marriage relationships. In the Jacob story Leah finds herself trapped into this love-devoid environment by marriage where she struggles to survive by playing along in the empty house ruled by controlling games, though she doesn't benefit anything by it, but finds her life increasingly wanting.
