Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

When I was in private practice ( I am an architect) for years and I did probably 15 houses a year so I got to meet many many couples who were going through a relatively stressful experience, namely building a house.

I found it fascinating. The dynamics between husbands and wives vary widely. Sometimes the husband dominates. In some cases the wife dominates. Some fight and argue and some just hum along. The most interesting and enjoyable couples were evenly matched and dynamic. They complimented each other ( not literally), they argued a little, and power switched back and forth in the conversation as they together found answers that added up to more than either of them. They seemed to have fun doing it too.

I think that's the ideal.
