Why I love the South - Reason #3

Chivalry is alive and well down South.

Let me be clear, I know full well that I am perfectly capable of opening my own doors and pulling out my own chairs. I think that women can do anything men can do, blah, blah, blah, but it sure makes me feel good to have my husband open a door or something of the sort. When I was younger and in the dating world, my parents would be appalled if some guy I was dating didn't go around and open a car door for me. It's common courtesy, and part of our culture in the South. I can only hope it's a piece of culture we can hold on to for the next generation.
