I heard a man say something the other day that I think more applies to women. He said that when he was about to get married, his father told him, “in marriage, you can be right, or you can be happy.”
And I suppose if your wife wears the pants in the family, that’s true.
But in Traditional Gender Roles, it’s the woman’s decision – she can be right, or she can be happy. She can be the strong-willed little feminist icon rebelling against her husband’s every word or she can choose to be happy, instead.
And with women’s overall happiness decreasing, I would think women would choose to be happy, not necessarily right.
