He Probably Needs The Boost If he likes to have himself and others believe that he is due all the bows and credit then his ego probably needs that kind of a boost. Trying to take it from him would i be a blow to his pride that he I might not forgive. | And it won't make you look bet- j ter to others either.

They just feel sorry for the poor husband who has to listen to that kind of talk at home all the time. Here's one thing to think about. ( You're sharing in your husband's <, success aren't you? Because of it j you live better. You also share the i friendships his success has brought J him. And your children share in his ; success. So you're being repaid for your early help.
