No I didn’t think so. We don’t think about things that long. All we see is pure wedded bliss where you see yourself snuggled tightly with your wife on a cold, rainy day sipping coffee or tea watching PBA (?) .
The fact is, among a host of other potential conflict situations that may be attributed to those I mentioned above, these are the most frequent issues that will come to mind.
Some women adjust easily to these events (yes, menopause is an event–no, my wife is not menopausal yet). If you are a hubby who is married to a woman like that, “God bless you brother!” If not, “GOD BLESS YOU BROTHER!” You’ll need it.
The truth is, us hubbies have to be very good at adjusting to our wives’ (wives need too but we’re not talking about you) mood swings and pre- and menopausal “issues”. It can be very hard for them. Us hubbies don’t have those (we only have greater mid life crises). We don’t have periods every month! That is something to thank God for, don’t you agree?
We married our wives not thinking about those kind of things. We married them because we love them right? Tell me I’m right! Part of loving is understanding and adjusting to your mate’s “quirkiness”. Is that a safe word wives? We need to understand what they feel or what they are going through. Us men have an easier time–we forget easily! But our wives? They are more complicated creatures. God designed them that way so we need to understand that as much God designed us differently so wives should also note that.
The bottom line is, if we consider ourselves as the leader of the house, we should also lead in adjusting to our wife and become better hubbies.
P.S. If you suspect your wife to be suffering from a hormonal imbalance, better consult a doctor, not me! BTW, men are not quirky, just crazy! See you next post!
