Married Western men are herded off into the garage.
One thing that you'll notice in is that the more feminised an area gets (either a house or a country) the more men get herded into progressively smaller and smaller areas. In the case of the rural American-Indians they were hounded and put into reservations. And in the case of married men they get hounded and after a while all their possessions end up in a man-cave in either 1) the garage, or 2) into a single drawer. This is what happens whenever a woman (or women collectively, or indeed, female instinct - which is also present in men) get the upper hand in (be it in society or a household): they progressively force men out of the public realm and into a small area that can be easily controlled and monitored. It's the female dream which is synchronistic with the 'Totalitarian State' (aka Big Mother, a more accurate description of Big Brother, credit to Ryu).
If you want to avoid getting all of your possessions harried into a single room of your house then learn how to keep hold of the reigns of power. You can do this by making choices instead of deferring to your spouse or letting her have the final say. You could also go on the offensive as X-Splat seems to do when he deals with his spouse and her choice of clothing:
It’s the man’s job to ensure the woman wears a proper housewife uniform around the house.
If she keep putting on the trash, take it off her and cut it up with scissors in front of her.
And tell her what to wear.
My girl occasionally backslides and I ask her “go get me the scissors”. She knows it’s no bluff, so she changes. (Source: http://xsplat.wordpress.com/2012/04/22/men-dont-realize-they-are-feminists/)
Or if for whatever reason you do not want to compete for power then stay single.
