|How necessary is a man?

in consequence of the missive, The Servants, penned by Deborah d'Bajor
It struck me that the male servant is the only man in the household. And I wondered how necessary a man might be. Of course he would be stronger. But might there be some social/business interactions that could only be handled by a man? Buying beer? Hiring local workmen for day work? for example if they needed help clearing brush or putting up a shed.
I know this will be an almost impossible question to answer, but wondered if anyone had any thoughts.
