What are wives for?

I read Rebecca Mead's article in the New Yorker (April 2, 2001) "Conditional Surrender: What wives are for, and other marital morasses" this morning. It was great, and I want to write about it right now, but the article's not online yet. I'll tell you what, you rush to the newsstand to get it before it's gone. Go ahead and read it, I'll wait for you. Then once you're through, I'll write my thoughts, add some space for comments, and we can discuss. Let's plan for, say, Tuesday next? Excellent, I'll see you then.
