It depends on the woman and the man tbh. Some medical conditions cause some women to produce more testosterone/muscle mass than some men. Some men have low testosterone. Maybe you see those as exceptions, but I don't. Besides, the wife could just be better than OP. Practice makes perfect and whatnot
Hey! his wife could be a bodybuilder or something. just because she's a woman doesn't mean she can't be stronger than you.
Men are genetically stronger than women. Men have much more muscle mass and much higher amounts of testosterone. Men are stronger than women unless the woman uses steroids (even then there's no guarantee). I know people like to say that "everyone is the same" but this is really far from reality. As for the FML, there's a million different exercises you can do with free weights, and there's no way to know which exercises OP felt were too hard. For example, OP might not be able to curl the weights, but could easily dumbbell press them. The wife could also need them for an "easier" exercise.
There's a huge difference between the average man being "stronger" (debateable depending on how you define the word--women have physical advantages that are often ignored) & EVERY man being stronger than every woman. Individual body types, age, practice, & diet can make a bigger difference than sex.
Maybe his wife is one of those super-buff body builders. (Doubt it, but hey if it makes you feel better!)
