5 Areas of Marriage One Man Admits He Fails at — on a Daily Basis
Wedding Rings by Petr KratochvilI love my wife.
From today on, I vow to be more cognizant of these shortcomings and to work to make a change for the sake of our relationship. Below are 5 ways I realize that I mess up every day — let me know if you do some of the same things, and how you plan to make things better.
Lamar Tyler1. Domestic duties
I’ve never admitted this in real life, but I need to do more around the house; more cooking, and cleaning, and washing dishes too! Those are all things that I hate to do, but I also realize that you hate to do them too. I vow to start helping out more.
Communicate when I’m stressed2. Not communicating when I’m stressed
I’m a man: There, I said it. Sometimes as a man and husband, I suppress my feelings and emotions because I don’t want to burden you. The downside of this is when I become mean and no fun to be around because you don’t realize that I’m going through something. I vow to start communicating more with you.
Stop attempting to cure everything with sex3. Attempting to cure everything with sex
When you say that you’re stressed, I’m happy to let you know that I can offer a stress reliever. Got a headache? I have a magic remedy. Bad day? I know what can make it better immediately. I realize that you’re not always in the mood, and I’ll try to refrain from always pushing up on you. Instead, I will offer an open ear that you need in order to voice your frustrations.
Put down the computer4. Not putting down the computer
I already know that I’m going to need a prayer on this one. I work from home, and my business is based on the Internet. I’m trying to build a dynamo of a company from the ground up. But I need to do a better job of putting the computer away and unplugging for at least a few hours in the evening. I intend on setting up a schedule and sticking to it for the sake of our marriage and our family. I realize that our family needs this business, but you need me even more.
Asking what you think I’m doing wrong5. Not asking what you think I’m doing wrong
I KNOW there are more areas of our marriage that my wife could tell me I’m failing at, but this is a beginning. From here on, I need to listen to what you think I could do better for our marriage and our family. Listening to you doesn’t always have to include explaining or defending, and I’ll try to do a better job at that.
