A woman from the northeast of the US has caused a stir after calling her husband's southern culture 'garbage'. During a family gathering, the woman's husband and his friend made jokes about him being 'whipped' and criticized her for not serving her husband first.

Husband wants traditional southern lifestyle, but wife refuses.
