I didn't realize many men agree with their women, whether right or wrong...had no idea. I understand why, but I don't think most women have a clue their men make that sacrifice, and thats sad in some way.
I hate conflict of any kind, with male or female. In early yrs of marriage I would speak up if I felt I was right, but as yrs pass one becomes wiser & more mellow, haha. I'd much rather laugh than cry! :)
He was raised in a rural small town community & household...women had their place, men had theirs...no inbetween. No way would he say "yes dear" if he thought he was right, not with his argumentative & stubborn personality, haha.
I was raised in a big city...my dad respected women on the same level he did men...he raised me to think the same. Such as there was nothing wrong with a girl loving football right along with the guys. My dad taught me how to play pool too, & other things that were considered 'for guys only' in my x hubby's small town.
Major culture shock, but I learned to
accept it for self preservation in business for myself and socially. It's not so much like that now...they've caught up with modern times. The guy's will let me play pool & talk football now in our community, respectively. :D
