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.
