Why Do So Many Marriages Fail?

June 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 155

How many men thank their wives for the meal she's just cooked before they leave the table? Worse by far are the men who take one look at the plate their wives put down before them and say;

"What the hell do you call this slop?"

You don't like it? You cook it. Isn't it simple courtesy? Just because you're married to someone, there's no excuse for rudeness.

Another problem is criticism. Complain, yes. Your spouse might upset you by doing something she/he may be quite unaware that it annoys you. What's the harm in saying something like;

"Oh love, please don't put that bin there. It means I can't get the mower out." If you both normally get on well together, the chances are she'll simply say;

"Oh sorry, love. I never gave it a thought." That's assuming that your marriage is a happy one and you both get on well. So complain, not like a raging bull, but as I've described. The opposite to this is criticism.

"You always leave that damn bin right in front of the mower. How am I supposed to get the mower out."

"Well you've a pair of hands. Try using them for a change." And before you know it, you're both having a knock down drag out.

Makes sense, though, doesn't it? If I'm courteous to you, there's every chance you'll be courteous to me.

The other bit of nonsense is where these people who write 'advice' columns in newspapers suggest you 'put everything on the table'. The great danger here is that by settling down to a discussion about everything, not only the good, but the bad is pulled out of the 'problems trunk' and put on display.

It's often wise to agree to disagree and there are almost certainly certain subjects it's wise to steer clear of. Let's have a look at how our elderly couple manage in these sorts of situations.

They don't listen too carefully when their partner is being negative, as well keeping a check on their own feelings unless it's obvious that something must be said or done because the situation is critical. There's an awful lot to be said for agreeing to disagree.

Another excellent ploy is what you might call the 'racing change'. You've had a bit of an argument, a disagreement about something. Okay. Don't labour the point. It's run its course, now change the subject.

Another action that can help no end is to give your partner a quick kiss every now and again, just because... Or even run a couple of fingers through their hair. If he's bald, pat his head. It's a little show of affection which can mean a lot more than it seems. Praising your partner or telling them you're proud of them can make them feel ten feet tall.

Don't criticize and a loving kiss certainly doesn't hurt.
