Later in the article, Mr. Willock says, "In order for the man to be the proper head of the family, his wife must continually consent to it. He cannot effectively force her to consent. On the other hand, the man must consent to her being his helper or else she cannot truly be helpful. If he seeks advice for living from some other sources, looking down upon her suggestions, then he is cutting himself off from the most likely source of wisdom."
These two quotes illuminate why marriage is indeed a dance!
One of the wonderful things I observed while watching waltzing lessons is that it is the woman's job to make the man look good while recovering from any leadership mistakes. She must do this without ever leaving her role as follower. How is this done in a marriage? Well, I think in the same way that the wife corrects mistakes that she makes in "helping" too much: encouraging and supporting him. I found this helpful list today on Betty Beguiles: 15 Ways to Encourage Your Husband.
