    Default showing off

    Part of my father's pleasure was showing off his wife, a shy sort of reverence.

    Could anyone explain this sentence? (particulary `showing off')

    He was obviously very proud of her in some way.

    Thank you Tdol
    But I could understand the whole sentence.

    Could you explain it?

    Also, `a shy sort of reverence' refer to`his wife' or `him'?
