Hi friends, Looking at the mens life, working hard to support the family, bearing tough pressure of society, setting new records for changing the Tv channels with remote, Finding right woman, knowing that they cann't have babies etc. What do you think is the most difficult thing a man have to deal with, Just being a man?

finances and a nagging wife, especially if the nagging wife is nagging over the finances! even more so if the nagging wife is a shopaholic spending way too much money on useless things - while nagging about the finances!

Hahahahaha you got me there but you know you are right. There are wives who really do that no wonder husbands stay out too late drinking over nonsensible things.

Just as unreasonable expectations of women--that we should fit social stereotypes--are the hardest thing to deal with for women, so I believe for men the expectations are the hardest thing. Men can be caring, and good fathers, and gentle, and thoughtful, but for some reason in many societies they are not supposed to show these parts of their nature. That makes it hard not just for the men, but for the whole family. Supporting the family is certainly not the hardest part because so many men do not even support their families and if they do, their wives work just as hard as they do only 14/7 instead of just during so-called "work" hours. More and more all over the world, now, too, women work full time outside the home and then still do the same amount of work at home as they would have to do if they didn't have an outside job. Even with some modern conveniences, we are looking at a very minimum of 72 hours of labor that the averaging homemaker with an outside job puts in and usually without the perks most men get. Married men may have to start chipping in and helping more at home or the most difficult thing they have to deal with may be a crabby and exhausted wife.

I think it is difficult for men to express feelings. From the time they are little boys they are taught to be strong and not cry. To be the MAN is the way they are raised. Sometimes they need a shoulder to cry on but they cant. Expressing true feelings and letting their loved ones know that they dont always want to the the pillar of strength that women expect.

From the woman's point of you i think you are right, my man is really having hard time expressing himself. Most of the time when we get slight misunderstandings i would always feel like giving up because he just can't handle the situation. It makes one think that he's too proud to settle the circumstances. And one more thing because of the difficulty in expressing his feelings, I can sense that he's not having passion to do things anymore. Or at least passion to love me.

yes it is alway s difficult for most of the men to express because of their roughness in nature and thier ego doesnot allow them to spaek and accept thing easily. it happens most of the time they want to speakup but found them self very much uncomfortable wih the situations

I can't be sure as i am female. But I would have to say being a stand up guy. a lot of men run from responsibility. They are not ready to be a husband or a father. They will stay with a woman and drag out her good years. Then when it's time to talk about marriage he is not ready. Not that all woman are either. many woman will become pregnant and the mother comes into action. Then the man starts thinking of his life and his wants and not the child who did not ask to be born. As I have seen for myself. Their are some really great dad's. But not all are as the same with woman and being mothers.
