I am happy to know that you feel that touching a husband's feet is a great tradition.
If Mahadev is great enough to be Parvati's husband then is Parvati not great enough for him? Then why should he not touch her feet when she teaches him stuff He does not know? Can you see that happening? Will you and several other people not faint and then get up and protest?
God is perfect and Shiv and Parvati perfectly complement each other, this stuff Mahadev being her Guru and then again her husband is to extend the plot and nothing more.
