Three Kinds of Wives - what are you?

I read a book this morning and there is an article there that talks about three categories of wives. First is the wayward wife who has a smooth tongue, utters seductive words and is like decay in her husband's bones. Second is the quarrelsome or ill-tempered wife. The third is the prudent or noble wife... That made me reflect of what kind of wife am I. Because sometimes I tend to be the first, sometimes the second, and sometimes the third. But as much as I would like to be the third category, the good and noble wife, there are just some situations that made me quarrel my husband...What about you, which category are you, or what kind of wife are you?

I try to be every thing he wants, but his expectations are too high. I have to fight back at times. You can only do so much before you fall.

The best thing probably you can do is to be yourself. I think it is unfair on your part for him to expect too much because for sure he is not even perfect. He needs to accept you as you are. But as a wife, I always say this to myself, we should try always to be calm even if we have to answer back, at least just to make a point. Because they always say that it it the main role of the wife to make things harmonious at home.

I asked my husband this question and he said that no one can fall under any of the categories.I optimistically pressed the issue asking him 'Am I not the prudent noble wife?' .And he categorically denied it saying 'NO WAY'.I laughed and laughed at that[[I have quoted exacly what he said

kalav.. it is quite evident, that you are not of that noble category, when you pressed the question.. I envy your status. as, you seem to have a very witty, intelligent, simple husband. and, please treat him with all the love, care and tenderness. He is not seeming to be one who sugar-coats his words, just to please you. .. and, please don't nag him... oh. I did risk my rating. lols.
