[quote]when families go bankrupt, a great majority of wives take over……this may be because women have less of a sense of personal failure when their families go bankrupt. While men take financial failure very personally, women have a broader sense that they are caught in a trap[/quote]

Fascinating.  I love anecdotes like this.  I guess women are not just the “fairer sex” but possibly also the more holistically aware and insightful sex, and not as vulnerable to pride/shame/guilt.

Not trying to start a gender fight.  I just think it’s a beautiful example of the value of remaining open to what “the other” has to teach.
