Ultimate respect for women is allowing them to live in a way most conducive to family life. That life, the kind of family life that has been around most of the last million years, is the greatest kind of respect a man can give a woman. Men and women are not the same. Men were meant to make the final decisions. Women are happiest when men make those decisions. Grasping at the few defective men out there as examples to label all men by is highly unfair. The best kind of family structure where the children grow up healthiest and happiest is when the man is in charge. The better man is one who listens to his loved ones. I know I certainly listen to what my loved ones have to say. If I spend all my time talking instead of listening to them, I really don't know what's going on with them. I'd like to think that most of the time I don't have to invoke a final say in discussion. My personal style is that I like lots of input from those around me. Certainly I don't mind controversy, but with my family, final says are mine.
