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.
