…Even though he was the one who told you it was time for you to go back to work? Most husbands don’t want their wife to succeed. In theory they want their wife to be successful so that there will be more money coming in. In actuality a wife’s success is an insult to their masculinity. It means they can’t take care of their family, they’re not successful hunters and, the worst one, their wife is more talented, skillful and makes more money than them. That’s a reality that’s too hard to take.
Better to keep her down by sneaky insults and subtle putdowns. Or just show lack of excitement over her successes.
