I've asked that same question - it went without answer. There has to be something wrong with you - It's never a fault or rough edge of a woman that's the issue (remember they're perfect)!
See the mindset & comments - "raise a man". If you are going in to "parent & smooth rough edges", you have the wrong attitude. Partners are supposed to support each other (educational, finances, emotionally, physically). You think only women have been abandoned after their partners acquired success and/or self-esteem? Let a brother say he was smoothing a woman's "rough edges" - he'd be labled controlling in a heartbeat.
Clip your wings, indeed HonestBrother!
