    Frankly, if the behavior were simply an annoyance rather than a real problem, positive reinforcement meant to encourage behavior change would probably be a more effective tool than confrontation anyway.

    Provide incentives for his behavior to change.

    Lord knows that women have plenty of means available to accomplish that.
    Well, to me, that IS forbidding. How much farther into forbidden territory could you go? You can't KILL the person!

    Maybe it was an innuendo. Don't let it make your imagination run wild. Then again, it might be more fun that way.

    and for the spouse who has been injured by an addiction, it is perfectly reasonable to put limits on behavior, and helpful for the relationship as well. Nor do you require an addiction for such a restriction to be healthy or appropriate - each partner should seek to submit to the others' legitimate needs.

    True, but it's kind of justified under those circumstances.

    Not if you get caught, anyway.

    If by limits on behavior you mean that there are expectations, I would agree. In a healthy marriage there is the expectation of fidelity, as much as reasonable being considerate of each other's needs, both agreeing on whether to go out or otherwise use free time and not obligating the other without his/her consent, mutually deciding on major purchases, whether to get a dog, etc., and backing each other up in parenting the kids. You might hear "I don't want to do that" or "That is a bad idea", but you won't hear "I forbid it" or "You're a stupid idiot."

    Increasingly the answer is "no".

    Men are increasingly disrespected by American women. They face extreme economic and social disadvantages in family law that makes it possible for a wife to divorce them and take most of what they have including their children for any reason or no reason. They are constantly told that they are worthless and stupid. Disrespect for men has become standard practice. Men are disrespected by their wives – they’re disrespected publicly, they’re disrespected privately, they’re disrespected and then told that they have no right to be upset about it because they aren’t worthy of respect in the first place.

    Disrespect of men is a joke to Americans now.

    The result has been that men are increasingly dropping out of society. They don't marry, they don't go to college because they see no reason to break their humps to get ready to provide for a family -- they aren't going to be having a family.

    Lots has been written about this phenomena, most of it in the strain of "why is it that men are so childish now." But men are not dropping out because of arrested development. They are acting rationally in response to myriad laws, attitudes and hostility against them for the crime of happening to be male in the twenty-first century.

    I would love to marry an American woman, especially my favorite lady with whom I have an excellent internet relationship with for the past 8 years or so.

    Men in the US are not being disrespected by American women. American women are tired of being second to men at every turn. Family law is there for the children and not for the dads. Usually it is the mother anyway who is taking care of the children even if both work.

    Men have been ruling the roost for centuries and now only women are standing up for themselves and being counted and seen as equals to men. Not by some men but in general women have finally taken their rightful place in society. And the men who are being told that they are worthless and stupid often are actually stupid and worthless. Women will no longer be reduced to being barefoot and pregnant slaves for their men. They work almost as much outside of the house and do the house work and children duties on top of their out of the house work. Disrespecting men has not become the standard practice, what has become the standard practice is that women are equal to men and no longer will allow men to boss them around while they lie on the couch and bark out orders.

    Men need to wise up and realize that they age of the rule of men is over, the age of equal men and women is here and now. Men have been stuck in their attitudes, that is why the weak bossy men of the past feel disrespected, treated like children and who feel that they are being targeted by the law, attitudes of women and the reality of 2014. And they are dropping out because of arrested development, men have a childish attitude to many things and in 2014 they have to become partners in a relationship and some men are just stuck in the past.
