I can’t help thinking, though, that most men who boast of possessive wives are speaking wishfully. “She won’t let me out of her sight,” says one chap I know of his wife. I’ve met her – she clearly cannot wait for a night to her self.Remember, if a man says anything negative about a woman, it is evidence of his personal deficiencies. If a woman says anything negative about a man, it is not only Gospel truth, but you should probably call the police and have him arrested, just to be safe.
In other cases, there’s reverse psychology going on. I’m sure that one particular chap that I know keeps saying his wife is dictator behind closed doors in the hope that his words may eventually push her to become the most laissez-faire lady to ever live. Good luck with that one, pal.
So keep an eye and an ear out for these wife-slanderers, they really are great cinema. And although they exaggerate their servility, the fact that they’re considering the feelings of their wives, and taking seriously the responsibilities of fatherhood, can only be a good thing.
It might be more gallant, though, if in time they could express that without it being at the expense of their women who are, I’m sure, very rarely the hissing autocrats that their husbands speak of.
Anyhow, men who whine about their wife being "the boss" are mostly gammas and low deltas. The only time a man takes orders is if you are a) at work, b) joining the priesthood, or c) in the Army.
