I was commenting on your action not your rationalization of it. No assumptions there.
What you are stating is almost the same as saying that I'm making assumptions why eggs have yoke, it is a biological imperative to provide for one's offspring and protect one's family, acting differently would be indeed a strange and unnatural behavior that would indeed be more open to conjectures and reflection of ones rationality.
Human society is structured against individuality and in a personal scale against natural law, where a person importance is diminished for the good of the greater social organism. Most like our individual cells submit to being part of a person.
