I heard my 80 year old father telling his doctor that his main goal in life is to "outlive my wife, so I can be sure she's well taken care of." I almost broke into tears. That was not just the "manliest" thing, but the most loving thing I have ever heard or known of.
**(I should add that my Father is now 83 and still taking great care of my mother!)
