>friendship with wife
This is a huge one. A friend you can relate to, doesn't abuse you or use you as a slave, doormat, tool or ATM. It's totally astounding to me that people choose to have relationships like that.

What is a "safe non-sexual affection"? Is that some sort of friend zone?

What's there looks accurate to me.

Among other things, males are predisposed to want authority over things and know they can take care of/protect themselves and others. Mastery of something can give the feeling of having control over it - which isn't always a bad thing, but is easily corrupted. The "needs" list for women almost sounds too passive to me, but women do want to know they're valued and protected.

Man gives woman respect in the form of a genuine listening ear and a safe, stable environment, and she in turn gives man the respect as a leader and recognizes/reaffirms his capability to provide - sounds like a winning combo to me.

All points valid but not necessarily in that order or on the right side of man vs woman list. People vary greatly.

Seems to track reasonably well with what I've learned from Dr Willard Harley at www.marriagebuilders.com

Please..

With my darling bride, 4 kids and ~40-70hr work weeks, I'm just happy to have dinner on the table and some semblance of sanity. Neither of which happen regularly.
