Husbands can be the greatest gift you’ve ever been blessed with and the biggest source of your aggravation. Women love their husbands dearly and yet some days they can’t figure out why in the world they married them in the first place.
So why are men so complicated?
Men themselves aren’t that complicated. In many instances, it’s the wife’s perception making their husband difficult to understand. Men are in fact simple creatures. You need to feed them, love them, and pet them occasionally. They think logically as opposed to women who tend to think emotionally.
For example, a married couple goes to the mall. They both need to buy a pair of pants. Women try a pair on and think, does it look good? Will my husband find them sexy? Will they look so good the girls in my book club will be jealous? Men try them on and think two things. Are they long enough? Are they roomy enough so they don’t cramp the family jewels? Major difference in the thinking patterns here.
Here are a few fun tidbits about the men we love so much.
- When you say something to your husband and he finally looks up and says “huh”, he did in fact hear you. He’s hoping you’ll get frustrated and walk away.
- When you ask your husband to do something and he responds, “in a minute”, he’s secretly hoping you’ll get tired of waiting and do it yourself.
- When your husband goes to the bathroom and disappears for thirty minutes or longer, it didn’t take that long, he just wanted peace and quiet.
- When your husband asks you how you’re feeling, he’s only trying to gauge his chances of getting laid.
- Yes, your husband thinks of sex all the time.
So remember ladies, listen to what your men are actually saying and not what you think he means. Emotional response + logical response = argument waiting to happen. Our men love tremendously, are fiercely loyal and will do whatever is necessary to take care of us! All the other stuff is just one more way we can enjoy our differences!
