I'm disappointed that you closed your question so quickly. : (
I've seen your responses before where you said most husbands act differently when their wives aren't around. The key word is "most."
It's funny because I think you and I have completely different view points but I do agree with you about the core of this issue. I have seen men act differently when their wives aren't around but the common denominator seems to be an over-bearing wife that is about appearances with most everthing (even if her marriage seems to pay for it). I have male and female friends both married and single and I can't really say I've seen any of them act differently with their wives not around. They're always the same person to me. Not saying I've never seen this but the couples I see this with I don't really have any interest in pursuing friendships with either person. The wife is very "typical" wife like in a sitcom where she nags...
