This is exactly one of the two major things my husband is good for (not including sex of course).
The second thing is that he deals with the public world on my behalf when I can't handle it. I have a tendency to rub authority figures the wrong way and to piss off those who are in a position to grant or withhold something that I require. Husband has the ability to take control of situations that are not stacked in my favour.
