    to tell people who to love?

    •  I didn't say I was defending it. (7+ / 0-)

      I'm merely pointing out that this model been socially acceptable, and perhaps still is.

      Personally, I wouldn't care to be married to somebody dumber than I was.

      many of them are not being abused verbally, mentally or physically and just staying in a toxic marriage.

      But for some marriages, the spouses share different opinions and views and politics but otherwise get along quite well. But I feel much about men and women who openly can admit this I worry more about the women who fear stating their opinions because of the husband;s outbursts. As remember loud , angry, outbursts directed at spouses regularly is verbal abuse especially if put downs or threats are included.

      But for some, they just do not want to start up an argument or get into the topic with their husbands ..just because they do not like to always argue but otherwise get along Ok...then that might work for them.

      I could never ever stand to be in that kind of marriage...no way. I need to be free to be me and have my feelings respected.  That is crucial and vital for me and my husband does that even when he disagrees and vice versa.
