Just Listen To Your Wife

Why You Should Listen To Your Wife

We are all familiar with the popular saying "a happy wife, makes a happy home", okay, well maybe it isn't as popular but it should be. Throughout history, men have held the majority of the positions of power in the world. Today however, this is no longer the case. With the growing awareness for the equality of women, they are now rightfully viewed as the equals to men.

The strive for power and authority that men have always had, can often create friction between the two genders. In general, men tend to be significantly more stubborn than their counterparts. In this article, we will discuss several reasons why you should always listen to your wife.

This may come as a surprise to many, but research has shown that women tend to be able to make better investment and monetary decisions than men. The main reason for this is that women are much more in touch with their emotions. A study done by the psychiatrist Richard Peterson, who has investigated the role that emotions play in making investment related decisions has been able to produce results that back up this statement.

The reason for this is that women are better able to more accurately assess the damage that a poor investment could cause, while men tend to focus more on the best case scenario. There are always exceptions but for the most part, people do not have the knowledge to make wise investments on a consistent basis.

Therefore, the best strategy for them is to invest conservatively which better fits in to a woman's idea of handling money. Financial troubles are a major contributor to the divorce rate in America so in order to better avoid this, you the husband, should always listen to your wife.

In any marriage, it is important that decisions are discussed between both the husband and wife equally. As any stubborn husband will do, making decisions on your own will both rob the marriage of the ability to make the best possible choice and will also create a feeling of neglect and uselessness for the wife.

Over time, doing this repeatedly will add up and can hurt the health of the marriage. Creating this negative relationship can give rise to other problems that normally would have not been an issue otherwise. If as the husband you make a concerted effort to listen to your wife, it will go a long way in solidifying a happy and long lasting marriage.

It is important to fully appreciate and provide for your wife as she, along with your children, will be the most significant people in your life. As you grow together, making an effort to allow her to have an equal (if not more) say in things and going out of your way to support her interests will turn a very good marriage into a very great one. The next time you are faced with a decision that you would normally make, take the time to listen to your wife and do what she would like you to do. On another note, think about your Mother. I just bet she was usually right.


Street Talk

If the ingredient to a happy home totally comes from momma being happy then you are in a doomed relationship. Marriage is a two way street. It's a contract, has a license, it's an agreement. With that agreement it is assumed that each person will do at least 50 percent. Remember I said at least 50 percent. This way nothing is left out, everything is covered. Guys are guys are boys. Live with it. Women are still trying to figure out themselves so who would believe they can figure us out? We want a good job, a good paycheck, a wife that does her half of everything, access to regular sex, as much respect given as taken, and all those moods women go through kept in the bathroom. Go take a pill. Yeah I'm a guy. And I love being one. I'm also a father and grandfather. And before anyone goes into the typical rant about 'if you had just given birth to a child your whole person would be in a uproar too. Your emotions would be high and low'. BS. If men had babies there would be more babies born on the Golf course, sporting events and cookouts, not to mention hunting trips, vacations and at the office. We don't make a big deal out of what our body is going through, we just want to wake up tomorrow with a smile on our face and happy to be alive. We don't take everything apart that is said and make up 'you really meant this!' comments. The best advice I can give is don't get married before you can afford it. Don't have a child before you can afford it. Adopt if you must, if you can't find the right person 'in your opinion'. There are tons of little ones out there that would be happy as hell to be adopted and loved. If you must birth your own baby and can't find the right guy, go to a sperm bank and then take on the responsibility of raising the child by yourself. (one major reason why women don't have babies by themselves! they want someone to help raise and PAY for the oops! that happened by accident, or more likely she just knew it was time for her to get pregnant and chose you to be the dummy. Have some respect for each other before you have a baby with someone. It'll pay dividends. And these groups that have 4 to 12 babies with 5 or 8 different fathers, they need to be sterilized and the fathers also! Stephen
