I mistaken thought this was all men all the time. This was one of my requirements as well, but my husband does not agree to it after fifteen years of marriage, and it is a source of strife. This was my first gender sex stereotype lesson in marriage.
My parents wanted us to have very little TV, but that did not happen because their work schedules left us unsupervised. I ended up seeing a lot of sitcom television. It set me up for all my beliefs about sex, gender, relationships, marriage, etc. My husband swears this is where all my twisted thinking about these matters comes from. He’s the social worker, so I’ll buy it.
