A practical payoff of grace

The gay-American-luv-guv's ex, Dana McGreevey, explained on MSNBC that wives don't stand up there for their husbands; they stand up there for their kids. My first thought was oh, great modeling on how to be a doormat. But then again, a friend of mine whose wife left him (and their daughter) always says that the best advice he ever got after she took off was that every time he behaved generously toward her, he was doing a kindness to his child, and that sounds right.
