She said, "If you're bringing the alpha energy to the table, and he's an alpha by nature because he's got all the testosterone, you're going to be like two bulls in a china shop, right?"

Soon after, Venker commented, "The husband needs from the woman softness instead of hardness, so happiness instead of anger, being more compliant and less dictatorial. Basically not telling him what to do. I don't know how else to put it."
