The Canterbury Tales

How does my quote prove my thesis?

Thesis- Geoffrey Chaucer's "The Wife of Bath" shows that a wife having equal possesion of mastery in her marriage is best for both man and women.

Quote from The Wife of Bath- "My lady and my love, my dear wife, I put myself in your hands. Choose that which will be most pleasant and honourable to us both, and what pleases you will content me."

I have to explain how that quote proves my thesis but I don't understand how to do that. I picked that quote because it's basically saying after the husband "Knight" let's the wife choose for herself ( to be beautiful or faithful) she then becomes both, which results in the wife and husband having what both of them want which makes them both very content.
