I went to attend a honorable person's 70th birthday today called 'Sapthathi' in our language. He is a educational reformer in our area. He is the father of two good working colleges in our area. Many VIP's including lawyers, teachers, Social reformers are present there. Many spoke about his extra advantages. One man noted out that the real hero about his success is his wife. There is a slang that "There is woman behind every man's success" What do you say about it?

We have a similar saying in English. There is also an addition: Behind every successful man is a good woman and a surprised mother-in-law.

@shshiju It means the mother-in-law is surprised when her son-in-law becomes successful.

That is a well known saying here too, and I think it's probably true in most cases.

I know that saying and I am pretty sure that most of the time it is true. A man needs a pleasant and caring wife to succeed in life.

A 'good' woman can bolster a man's success just as well in reverse. Being married makes the couple a team.

OK I agree that It may some times. There are lot of great great successful men who are not married. This statement is not suit to them.
