Every now and then someone asks me why it is that when Fred and I go some place I often drive. The answer goes back to when we were commuting to Montpelier to work every day. We know that often women let their husbands do the driving, especially if the weather is foul. However, Fred always stressed that it was important for me to drive in all sorts of conditions, just as it was for him, so we always took turns. Whoever drove to Montpelier in the morning was the passenger on the way home. Over the years, we've pretty much stuck to that system, and it works out very well. I know some husbands are not comfortable when their wives are driving - and all I can say is that if they let her drive more often, she would gain confidence; or, he might find out she's a heck of a lot better driver than he thought. On the other hand, it might not work at all for some couples . . . !
