8 Things You Should Never Say to a Woman
8 things a woman NEVER wants to hearI am no expert in relationships and I don’t really plan to ever become one.
I am married and would say ‘happily’ for going on 8 years now (yeah, that makes me feel old!) and we have been together for 13 years, since high school. Marriage has it’s ups and downs and peeks and valleys and is a relationship that takes work as two people change and grow and grow-up.
My husband is a pretty awesome guy. He brought me all my cravings when I was pregnant, held my hand and protected my heart through our hard times and knows how to make me laugh like no one else can. We have this great partnership that’s necessary for us to raise our children and they are lucky to have him as well.
He is a dude though and sometimes the wires get crossed between what I’m trying to say and what he hears. I won’t confess if he’s ever said any of these phrases, but I can assure you if he has/does – he will get a good talking to.
Pay attention, guys! Here are 8 phrases you should NEVER say to your wife if you want a happy marriage:
1. “Yes, you do look fat in that.”
You know, sometimes we may look a little chunky in what we are wearing, but never answer the question so bluntly.
2. “Wow, look at her! She’s hot!”
Wow … look at you, sleeping on the couch for EVER now.
3. “It must be that time of the month”
Don’t rationalize away the reasons we’re mad at you. Sometimes it’s because you’re being an a** and not because we’re menstruating.
4. “The guy at the store said this was the top of the line vacuum”
Do NOT buy her a vacuum for her birthday, anniversary or Christmas.
5. “What did you do all day?”
Tread lighty husband. There are a lot of behind the scene things you may not notice. Keeping all the house and kids together is hard!
6.”This is almost as good as when my mom makes it”
I bet it’s better then you would ever make it. Don’t compare your wife to your mom!
7. “My ex did it for me.” / “When my ex and I…”
NEVER. TALK. ABOUT. THE EX. Unless you’re telling me how I am way better.
8. “Just relax!”
This will always, & yes ALWAYS have the opposite effect.
