The problems that arise are not always a result of men's attitudes. Some
wives resent that their family's economic welfare rests disproportionately
on them, limiting their freedom to put their career on hold, if they wish, to
spend more time at home with their children, or to pursue other interests. The
friction that causes can be far more damaging to a relationship than a husband
who feels overshadowed by his wife.Though it's not politically
correct to say so, men have a God-given drive to provide for and protect their
families. When a man cannot do so, for whatever reason, it eats away at his
self-esteem and can cause a great deal of emotional pain. In our "PC"
world, that discussion never makes it to the public square.
