Married men and married women both make mistakes in their relationships but if you look at a certain statistic it may be evident that men may make most of the mistakes in a marriage. It’s estimated that 3 out of 4 divorces are filed by women. This could mean that wives just get tired of husband mistakes and decide to give up.
It’s a scientific fact that humans need relationships. We need to share life with someone to feel fulfilled and complete. Those who live alone express an emptiness and rarely develop as well emotionally and socially as those who have a partner. Married couples thrive better than singles and usually achieve more in life in every way.
If we were meant to be together and form a relationship, why do we make mistakes that jeopardize the situation? Some of the things we do that are wrong, or viewed as wrong, are done inadvertently.
Other mistakes are made over and over again even while we’re aware of what we’re doing. Partners view these actions as an attack on their person by destroying their relationship. It comes across as indifference.
Men are guiltier of this than women. Indifference doesn’t mean a lack of love; it just means the scope of the problem is perceived differently. Men rush to fix a problem and move on to the next.
They ignore the need women have to be stroked and loved because they’re experiencing trauma. Men must learn to fix the problem but not until offering understanding and sympathy about the female’s emotional stress.
Communicating and indifference could be termed as parallel problems. Most men don’t mind talking and can usually offer a step-by-step plan of solving whatever problem there may be. Women ultimately want to solve the problem but also want to talk to feel closer.
Men shouldn’t rush to fix but rush to listen and respect their opinion and ideas.
Women want to analyze the problem to see why it exists and why it occurred in the first place. Men tend to be less open about how they feel and play the emotional cards close to their chest.
Husbands should learn to listen with their hearts as well as their minds and ears. Listen with enthusiasm and avoid the tendency to withdraw. You’re not on the sports field here. You’re sharing with your life’s partner.
Husbands tend to think romance is only for single guys while courting their sweetheart. Now that the chase is over so is the romance. As the romance dies so does the relationship. Men can live without it, women cannot. Well, they can, but prefer not to. This is one of the easiest mistakes to correct. Simply be more affectionate and thoughtful. Give her little gifts and surprises. Expensive gifts are not necessary. It truly is the thought that counts in this case.
Don’t think of your wife as the guy friend you hunt or fish with. She’s your friend but much more than that and expects to be treated with respect and love. Wives are rarely someone you can change. Love and accept her for what she is. Living together means sharing together. Fewer mistakes will be made if you bring back the good times.
