Can’t Win With My Wife

Sunday, April 26th, 2009   6:58 pm | Author: Brad | Relationships |

I’ve been married for almost six years.  I’m grateful that my wife and I have two great kids; we both have jobs; and we live in a small but nice house that is not causing us any financial strain.  What drives me crazy, though, is that my wife always complains that I don’t do enough, and that whatever I do is not done well enough according to her standards.  For instance, if she tells me I don’t pitch in enough to clean up after dinner, and then I do, she complains that I don’t rinse the dishes enough before I put them in the dishwasher, or that I don’t cover the left-overs tight enough with the glad wrap, or that I never finish a job because I don’t sweep the floor.  Then, if she tells me I don’t give the kids enough attention and I start playing with my four-year old son, she complains that I play too rough and that’s why he gets too agressive with his friends.  If I offer to get my daughter ready for bed, I have to hear it that I chose the wrong pajama that’s way too hot for this weather.  I can’t seem to win with my wife.  It’s really annoying.

    That sounds like my marriage when my kids were growing up. I was often annoyed because my husband didn’t help enough. When I look back, I think it was an expression of anger or frustration about other things, maybe feeling unappreciated or unloved or unhappy. I think it’s hard for spouses to stay focused on each other when you have children. It takes a lot of mutual love and commitment. My husband and I divorced after 20 years of marriage, when the kids went off to college. I guess the love and commitment weren’t there. Hope yours works out better.

    I read with great interest your post about the problems with your wife. Here’s what I thought: You mention that you’re grateful for your kids, your and your wife’s jobs, your house and the fact that it doesn’t cause you any financial strain. Great. But what about your wife? You never mention that you’re grateful for her. Being married isn’t the prize; it’s your partner who should be! How much praise have you given her over those six years in terms of what she gives to you, gives to the kids, to the house, to your extended familes, etc.? If you’re thinking: she doesn’t do that for me, either, then you need to realize that more than ever, you need to initiate that kind of treatment. Give and you’ll get. Trust me on this.
