Reflection on change – How to change a husband?
Behavior of an individual is determined by the individual as well as the environment in which the individual is placed. It’s often overlooked, that the most effective way to change behavior is to change the environment. This is because 1) environments can be changed in multiple and very practical ways and 2) often changing an individual is difficult, if not impossible. This is true – of course – also for husbands.
In the environment of a husband, the wife herself will be among the most influential factors.
This suggests that effectively changing the behavior of a husband may well require changing his wife.
