Can we say that the rule regarding female birth as last birth is not applicable in the current time?

[Shri Hrushikesh asked: Dear Swami, Salutations to Your Lotus feet. I request You to kindly help us with answers for the following questions.

In one of the recent answers given to Lakshmi Thrylokya about the sweet devotion to God, male souls may fight on the ground that partiality is shown to female souls only since male souls are denied of sweet devotion. I have few questions about some points You have given which i made in a dialogue format.

Swami: Leaving the spouse for the sake of God is more difficult in the case of the female than in the case of the male.

Hrushikesh: However, in today's world, females are also leaving their spouses easily in the form of divorce for different reasons. So can we say that this rule regarding female birth as last birth is not applicable in the current time?]

Swami replied:- I explained about Krishna and Gopikas in Dvaapara age, when the conditions for females were very strict compared to males. Even today, in the case of majority of the females, the conditions are still strict though not very strict. Of course, some few cases may exist as exceptions. We always build the concepts on the general trend existing in the majority. The ancient traditions are still continuing in majority even though the social conditions are changing. Hence, the concept need not be changed even though it is shaken to some extent. If you imagine that all the females become like males and all the males become like females, the policy will be modified by God so that only males deliver issues and the birth in a male body becomes the final birth. This is an assumption based on your assumption only and need not be given the strength of any probability.
