So who do you need to talk to?

Pyromaniacs discusses the all too common case of the wife who "earnestly desires" a husband who will lead, and asks the question of whether the wife truly wants a leading husband, or--shudder--whether the real issue is that the husband has rightly perceived that his wife will not follow.

This would explain, in part, why most books about family leadership are written more or less to women, but I'm not quite sure that most of those books really deal with what the Pyro crew is noting here.

I believe in most cases the husband has rightly perceived that his wife will not follow.

You probably already know that's what I think, huh?

That would certainly be a suitable explanation for your exhortations to wives. :^)

Somehow I earnestly desire, though, that husbands "grow a pair" (pardon my french, but what other phrase works?) and start to lead. Maybe by coaching the wife through changing brake pads or something.
