“For example, many women push their husbands to make a decision, and then they push some more. After pushing a little more after that, the husband finally — in an ‘all right, all right’ kind of way — makes a decision to go in that direction. The wife knows that he is only doing this because she pestered him a great deal, but she still wants him to have made this right decision out of the depths of his own heart. So, in order to give him the opportunity to really mean it now, she begins resisting his implementation of whatever it was. This is the point where he just looks at her without the slightest trace of comprehension” (For a Glory and a Covering, pp. 75-76).
