Advice for Husbands
December 3, 2009 12:50am CST
Don't feel guilty about your wife's emotional outbursts. When your wife is struggling, the best thing to do is to try to console her with a hug or other expression of love, or by letting her talk, but be careful not to let your wife draw you in to her negative emotions. Keeping a positive perspective can help her stabilize her emotions. When you are dealing with emotions, your wife may think you need to talk them out like she does. Be honest about your need for some quiet time to think things through. She'll get used to leaving you alone if you explain your needs to her.

This is where my husband fails. I try to talk to him about my concerns or even what I have done in the day, but he is not interested. I then tend to turn to others that do listen so that I can feel relieved of all my concerns. But yet, when my husband has any concerns, I listen to him. I believe that a marriage is a two way street where it is important that both husbands and wives need to listen to each other.

i learn feeling are never wrong, i do share my feelings with my wife as she does with me. our life is always full of stress from different things. i think men have more of a habit of holding our feelings in, but i can i dont anymore i will talk with my her on whats bugging me. only if it dont upset her because when she get up set she get sick. but men i think we should always express ourself to our wife, as wife to husband if we like it or not.

hi friend , being a family women i really understand and feel the value of your advice. women have their own feeling and if you allow them to let to dry all her emotions then she will definitely listen and do whatever you wish to do.
