I think that a wife is very much like a Newton in that regard. Let's say that the vertical axis is how much a gift costs, and the horizontal axis is how much time and attention you pay to your wife (or girlfriend/fiancee). She's definitely going to have little resistance to most things if both of those axes are at a higher value.

The difference between Newtons and wives, for me, is that I've found few women I could see myself spending the rest of my life with. But, I have several Newtons. ;)
