http://dontmarry.wordpress.com/2009/07/23/married-men-post-here-if-you-hate-your-life-2/ hit the link & scroll down for married guys thoughts on their wives. Iâ€™m the one who works, but she canâ€™t keep up her end of the bargain either sexually or in terms of housework. I run 4x a week, and she inhales Dove bars. And alsoâ€¦remember that you cannot argue with an emotional women. Never. if she is in that crazy mood. DO NOT TRY AND REASON. Say something like â€œIâ€™m sorry you feel that way.â€ If it continues then say, Iâ€™m not discussing thus further right now and walk away or make a phone call or pick up your copy of GQ and start reading it. Eventually sheâ€™ll calm down and maybe you can discuss it. maybe not. But at least you are not expending all that energy. Its a waste. You need to view your wife in that state like your 7 or 8 year old tantrumming child. You cannot reason with them. Donâ€™t try. Donâ€™t be manipulated. Just be the man. Have a backbone. Stay calm.
