I was watching a movie the other day called "What Women Want" starring Mel Gibson. I am sure everyone has heard of it before. It got me thinking what is it actually that women really want? I mean lemme give you a scenario. A husband and a wife work at the same place and their boss insults the wife's work and the husband stands up for her telling the boss to shut his mouth. The wife gets angry at the husband claiming that she can fight her own battles. Now another way to look at the scenario is that the husband stays quiet when the boss insults the wife's work and the wife gets mad at the husband for not standing up for her. I mean is everything we do to make them happy wrong. Is their no way to make sure that we don't get into trouble cause sounds to me like anything that we do leads to trouble somehow. What is the ultimate defense against this sort of scrutiny?

Hmm, an interesting scenario and I would think it depends on the woman - or on the mood she happens to be at the time I would never want to work at the same place as my husband because i think we all need space to be individuals. So, I wouldn't want him to get involved in any sort of verbal exchange with my boss. The husband could be a bit more subtle than to tell the boss to shut his mouth and the woman needs to be able to deal with the situation herself. Sadly, there is no ultimate defense & the same goes if the roles are reversed.
