I'm just trying to reconcile this idea with the other idea that my wife should feel secure in our relationship. How does a wife feel respected and cherished when she knows she is so replaceable? Should I really want my wife to step it up because she's afraid she would lose me otherwise?
As you have likely seen on this forum in other threads, it works both ways. You are easily replaceable too.
Athol is essentially teaching men how to play the game their wives have already been playing for years.
It all evens out.
