“Patriotism takes many forms, including teaching, transforming, and even protesting.”
– Bob Costas
To state Bob Costas’ point another way: Seeking change (e.g., a wife protesting her husband’s appearance and requesting he cut his hair) is not equivalent to disowning what needs to be changed (the husband).
Although the man might *feel* rejected, she remains by his side — even when he delays and part of him looks disgusting. Patiently, she dissents, but does not betray.
As much as the husband might love his mane or his mullet, her voice matters. In fact — especially in the case of mullets — for the good of society, she has an obligation to object.
