Those who dote upon their wives will not achieve great success,
And those of great ambition avoid that very thing.
The riches of a man who rashly follows a woman's ways
Will buy him only shameful shame.
An abnormal submissiveness to his spouse
Will earn a man endless disgrace among decent men.
Though he has mastered the doing of deeds,
The henpecked husband merits little in this life or the next.
A man's fears of his own wife will make him
Constantly fearful of offering good to good folks.
Though providence has filled his life,
A man who fears his graceful spouse is empty of simple dignity.
A woman's shy ways show great dignity,
Unlike a man who lives to work a woman's bidding.
Those who live obeying their wife's wishes
Can neither satisfy the needs of friends nor benefit others.
Neither virtuous deeds nor vast wealth nor other accomplishments
Will be found with men who carry out their wife's commands.
Prosperous men whose thoughts dwell in the mind
Never indulge in the folly of doting on their wives.
