I made the mistake of watching a male do a standup special and he launched into a typical spiel about how much better his wife is than him and how much he hates and resents her. You know, typical stuff. Part of it involved him talking about how afraid of his wife’s wrath he is.
I noticed this is a common trope and plays out pretty consistently in real life as well. I see men rearrange their entire lives and make themselves miserable because they have some idea in their head that doing some innocuous thing will upset their wife and they might have to have a conversation about it.
It’s not like we’re going to hit or murder them. Is this some kind of leftover mechanism from when wives poisoned their husbands? Or are they genuinely that terrified to get divorced/dumped and have to live without access to a woman?
