There's more to being a man than testosterone. Maybe we should have made this more of a "heathens' haven" forum. : )

Actually, this is a pretty good subject for a new board for Men.

How much can a spouse expect of us in order to make her "feel comfortable?"

I don't know about anyone's marriage here, but it seems to me that women can 'get used' to controlling us through this sort of 'discomfort.' It seems to be accumulative over time as well. Pretty soon, you can't even have lunch with a woman from work without 'getting in trouble'.

The way I see it, my wife can do whatever she wants. If she cheats on me, then I guess I was mistaken about what we're doing here. But, if she hasn't given me any reason to distrust her, what good reason do I have to limit her life?

I expect the same in return.
