Some thoughts..... Society has made women into men in an attempt to overthrow what God has ordained, read Genesis. A man and a woman are a complimentary team, not equals, both can't row the boat or steer, but some women want their man when they get married to change. huh, change, into what? a woman. So what is A MAN. A MAN is competitive, he strives, he battles, hes territorial, hes possessive. So when a woman attacks a man on certain levels she doesn't invite the man to change but rather to HATE her, and the longer it goes on she has in fact driven him away. Men are very tolerant. [not all] Men are not very expressive of their emotion, they bury them deep. When a woman criticizes a mans efforts, as stupid as they may be, its the equal of him saying to her she's an ugly FAT old hag. She has attacked his ego, ego is a strong thing, his ego to be a good worker, to be successful in life, to provide a home and food. Certainly it takes two to tango and a lot of relationships the man is perceived as the cavemen who won't understand his wifes emotions, because he can't and won't, its alien to his mental makeup. Are men lazy couch potatoes, be they on a fishing boat or in front of the TV, yes and no. Old lions do a lot of lying around, lying around is good, watching football is better if it involves lying around, whats your problem? But here's the problem how can you get a man to appreciate a woman? Men and women can get into a loop or starving one another. We cannot change another human being, our wife or husband is not our possession, we don't own them, they are who they are, we cannot change them, they can only change themselves, Forced change can leave a bitter resentment, a crack waiting for something to split it open. Men don't talk about their problems, [most] but don't mean he isn't thinking about it night and day trying to resolve it in his mind. Human beings shouldn't live together, their too dumb messy and lazy I only speak for myself..
