Finding Balance in Marriage

[ 0 ] March 16, 2011 |

Today’s economy is tough on a marriage. What role do we play as women? In many cases we are the breadwinners or at least contributing 50/50. So we work, manage the budget, pay the bills, run the household. We grocery shop, fill the prescriptions, help with homework, shuffle  the kids to soccer practice, cook and clean. And the men do what? Go to work ,come home, sit down and ask what’s for dinner. Then get pissed when dinner is pizza. And there is hell to pay because you forgot to pick up their cognac. I mean damn….can a girl get a break. You just want to scream, “I bring home the bacon, do I need to fry it up too? Damn, get off  your ass and help me!”. That would start some major drama.

That is major resentment building up. Who said we have to do everything, all the time. At the end of the day, do you really want to give that man some? I think not. But withholding sex from our man hurts our spirit. We are sexy, sensuous beings who need intimacy. So instead of being angry and creating stress, use what you got, to get what you want. We are going to seduce our man into helping around the house. Vacuum in the nude, think he’ll want to help? Draw a bath for two, put on some sexy music and quietly talk about each other’s needs in the marriage.

Didn’t your mother tell you that you catch more flies with honey? Remind your man that he is your life partner. Emphasize LIFE in life partner and all that life entails. Remind him about all the plans the two of you made when you fell in love. Tell him that you want to be in love again and that you need his help to do that.  It’s all in the approach. Make it work for YOU! Let me know how that works for you at Signed Madwife.
