    Your numbers in the final paragraph are wrong. If she values reclining at $50, why would she pay more than that to do so. And if he values her not reclining at $75, why would he accept anything less than that.

    You guys are confusing a lot of people out there. In this example, the man should be paying the woman anything between 50-75 in order for her not to recline.
