I have never in my life been a fusser or nag to anyone,But in all my relationships the man acted more like the old saying goes "The Nagging Wife" has turned out to be "The Nagging Husband". Men seem to be more of whiners today then they did in the yester years. For example my Husband says I don't make anough money to buy this and that I can sit at home on weekends and save money he wants to spend it but in turn when I want something he raises all kinds nonsense. Another thing is my stepdaughter and I spend just as much money but he only fuss at me about my money he only stops when I become so angry that the devil himself is scared of me. So tell me ladies or Gentleman do you have have a nagg in your household like this or am I the only one getting the Whiners?

Oh,do not be angry. Sometimes you have emotions,so will feel very bad. Tell him you feel,so that he will understand.

Oh am not angery I am just curious is this only happing to me, My husband is 10 years older me but he gets in childish arguments with me and my kids,you can joke with him and he gets insulted and sulks like a 3 year old. He fusses because I don't make a enough money and then since I started my home bussiness he fusses about me working to much because I basicly work almost 24/7 due to the fact that I got tired of him saying he is only paying bills when if fact most my money goes to bills.I am curious is he just the type of person who has to find something to fuss about to be happy. lol

I think it is related to the verbal skill. It is proven from studies that women are better at delivering message in verbal language, that's why they have more and better vocabulary than guys. That's why men are worse at nagging, because maybe, they don't have enough words to tell them all to the conversation partner. LOL. I think it is scientific so you might find it in communication studies.

Klaudine, this is simply insulting. I wasn't going to bring it up - but since you did - science has shown that men have a larger capacity for words than women. So that argument is null and void. As I said: people are people. Some just can't communicate.

I have seen it more in men than women as a "Nagger". My daddy was not a nagger & I don't believe my mom was a nagger they discussed issues they did not fuss. My mom was raised around a nagging mom & she hated fussing. My husband can fuss more than me. I was not raised around fussing except when I was at grandma's house. I could not stand to here her fuss at my grandpa. All the men I have been involved in is more jealous than the females & they fuss. I have not given my ex's any reason to be jealous they was the dogs, but I guess they thought I was like them but I am not like them. I feel men starts a fuss so they can hear themselves, LMAO!!! The sound of their voice, LMAO!!! As far as female naggers the only one I have ever seen was my grandma & I have seen plenty of men naggers. For they fuss or complain about anything & everything. Example, I walk away from my husband when he fusses he will follow me & can fuss for 3 days or longer about the same thing. Go figure, LMAO!!!

This has nothing to do with gender, DonnaLove1976. While I will agree that it comes down to social skills, it is foolish to confine it to one gender. What you are describing is the availability heuristic. YOU may have seen more men than women fussing. Therefore, you think it's more prevalent in men. Someone else may see it more in women than in men - and believe it's more prevalent in women. People are people. This is not a gender issue.
