The revulsion of women can be caused by a morbid mental condition experienced from mistreatments during one's childhood; especially, those relating to the parents: Because Jack had dreadful memories relating to his mother and aunt while he was a child, he mistrusted women generally when he was a teenager and a young man and his misogyny influenced his life so much that he avoided girls, and later, women as much as possible and so he never got married.
