He's got your back no, no, my dear she has it as fierce as he looks, she'll rip anyone apart who messes with those she loves!It's the female that is protecting him. Remember that. Females protect in most species.
My husband has had his bad moments and hard times, but overall he has kept this promise. I have heard so many stories of husbands leaving their sick wives, and I'm very glad my husband is not one of them! The longer I am sick, the more we work on how to handle it and the better we get at dealing with it.
