Re: What is manly?
My husband is the Head of the House, the Alpha Male. He does all the things you mentioned. Althougth he does not whine. But if he has a complaint ofcourse I am going to hear about it. My husband does not yell or get upset. He has no reason to. He is respected and in control. He is the leader. And he also treats me like a queen and spoils me. But I know what is expected of me, my roles, my responsibilties, my chores, etc. He is a police officer. We are always running into people he knows. He is always talking, get phone calls, etc. I am expected to be patient, wait quietly and understanding of this. I know what behavior is expected of a police officers wife. I learned this when we were dating. I was very impatient and disrespectful one time when this happend in public. Uh and never was again. My husband and I are very traditional. But I love it. He makes me feel safe, protected and loved.
