You realize,

You have given this power to your wives because you do not know how to protect it and are only beginning to understand how important it is to you in the first place. But by all means don't let me dissuade you from your cultural right to pity party. When will Americans realize how much of their minds are being wasted on blame and shame? Both are remedial crutches for the unenlightened, unaware. I'm not talking about standing up to her in a stereotypical sense, but it might feel like that when you start representing your spiritual existence with love, conviction, vulnerability, kindness, and compassion. Change yourself first if you dare to say you own yourself...start acting like it.
