A common way of men (especially American men) being treated by women, whereby the man is valued not for who he is, but for the role that he fulfills in the woman's life. Similar to the way some men treat women as a sex-object.
Wow, Julie has no clue as to what her husband wants or needs, it's all about her. The poor guy is a total relationship object.
