In my continuing effort to provide to modern young men the marital education I was denied, I was reminded of one of the worst things wives can do to their men. The specifics of what I did aren’t important, but it caused Mrs. B’s dander to rise. Despite the incredibly minor nature of the offense, I was taken to task over it for the better part of a week. AND, the chiding didn’t remain just on this one event. I got to hear about incidents dating back to before we married many decades ago as if to remind me what a foul and vile abomination toward femininity I really am.
The point is that no argument, no violation of her rules for your behavior, is ever a settled issue with wives. Anything and everything can and will be used against you in the court of her law. You are guilty with no defense to prove yourself innocent, and no mitigating circumstances will be allowed into evidence except to enhance the charges against you. Then you get thrown into solitary until she decides she misses you. That can take months. No married man can escape this persecution. It’s how women keep their men in line.
Is this the kind of life you want for yourself, son? Think back to the many times you saw your own father endure the slings and arrows of outrageous marital misfortune, then put yourself in his zapatos. Where does this leave you?
