*sigh*. This is probably an innapropriate thread, but these thoughts have been brewing ever since I started reading HTF. I can'r resist, so please bare with me. I see so many posts that mention the wife accpetance factor, so sweetly abreviated as WTF. And everytime I see these posts I cringe. I guess I am absolutly floored at the number of men in these forums that have such one sided and unhealthy, IMO, relationships with their wives. It's like Everybody Loves Raymond time a hundred. I can't believe how many of you have absolutly no say about what goes into yout home. I bet your wives don't let you pick the colour of the bathroom towels, or the walls, or the furniture. I bet your bedspread is entirely of your wifes choosing as well. I also have a feeling that your contribute anywhere from 50-100% of the family income. If you want to put a subwoofer at the front of your family room, you should bloody well be able to do it as far as I am concerned. I can't belive how many times I have read posts that mention they are not allowed to buy a new tv, for example. I am sorry, but this is just insane. Where it the equality in these marriages? This is not an anti-woman post. This is not an anti-marriage post. But I do have very little respect for the type of woman that beats her man into submission. It's just not fair, and I can't imagine such a dynamic amounts to a very happy marriage.
