If you’re a married man who doesn’t want to have a fight on his hands, there are sure to be things you choose to keep “schtum” about at home. From caring about what other people think to spending time with her folks, here’s what might drive even the most committed men to distraction, as listed in a recent Reddit thread…
12. Stop Trying to Impress Other People
Some male Redditors reckon their other halves spend far too much time – and cold, hard cash – on trying to impress people who often don’t give a damn anyway. Crippling debt isn’t good news for any partnership…
11. Quit Scrolling Social Media
Who cares what everyone else is up to? Ask many of the male readers contributing to this Reddit thread. The competition only makes her feel inadequate in many cases. It’s also such a waste of valuable time.
10. You’re Not Always Right
Both parties assuming they’re always right – with neither ever giving in – spells disaster for many marriages. “The goal of an argument isn’t winning, it’s a solution” is the argument put forward by one male contributor.
9. Don’t Say It’s Okay If It’s Not
Reddit readers agreed that this one could drive them absolutely crazy. “Actually tell me what’s wrong” pleads one, begging his partner just to spell it out. Rather than holding it all inside, until she finally explodes.
8. Sometimes You Should Initiate Intimacy
Waiting every single time for her partner to make a move makes some male Redditors wonder if she’s even interested. Their argument is that men need to feel desired – every bit as much as women do.
7. Play a More Active Part
Not only should she initiate sex now and then, say Reddit readers, but she should also play a more active part. Lying back and staying still makes a man wonder what he might be doing wrong. It surely doesn’t increase her enjoyment either.
6. Treat Me As You Want to Be Treated
Something Reddit contributors say their wife should never do is to talk to them in a way that they themselves wouldn’t put up with. It works both ways, people.
5. Just Get Ready, Already
Why does it take so long for women to actually set foot outside the house, asks one frustrated Redditor. Please just hurry when we need to leave, he begs, instead of being at least quarter of an hour late for absolutely everything.
4. You Should Learn to Say No
Some women, it seems, simply cannot say no. Even though they’re happy to utter the two-letter word where their husband is concerned, it seems it’s often a different story when it comes to her own family or friends.
3. Value Me For More Than My Money
In some cases, men contributing to this Reddit thread feel like they’re nothing more than a source of cold, hard cash. Numerous contributors to this thread reckon they’re only worth the amount of money they bring into the household.
2. Don’t Ask If Your Dress Looks Good
If there’s a chance she won’t like the answer, then she shouldn’t ask the question in the first place, say a number of male Redditors. Telling the truth will only lead to upset, so it’s best not to fish for compliments in the first place.
1. We Spend Too Much Time With the In-Laws
Many coupled-up men seem to agree that they have to spend far more time with their in-laws than they’re at all comfortable with. Even the fact that get along well doesn’t mean he wants to spend every single weekend in their company.
