      A good husband should not deny his wife sex and use the "I am tired from work" excuse whenever she wants to get intimate.

      A good husband should learn that manscaping is a must especially if you like your wife to give you oral sex. Getting hair caught in the back of your throat isn't fun.

      A good husband should always make sure that his wife... let me stop! LOL.

      I got caught up in the moment, sorry...

    The only things that a man should do with regards to marriage..

    (a) be trustworthy
    (b) be patient
    (c) be accepting
    (d) be a listener
    (e) be a conversationalist

    There are no other things a man should do.

        Cooking and cleaning? This is ridiculous. I realize, that you are not on the same page as I am, but that's okay.

        I'm a domesticated man already, before marriage, so a marriage wouldn't change that. hmm

            I can believe it. I don't doubt it's happened to you. And, I would think that you of all people wouldn't lump "all" husbands in the same basket, as your experience as lead you to believe.

            I'm a domesticated man and have no issues with cooking or cleaning my place. A wife, isn't a housemaid. wink

      Sorry, Cags - I think a man should also help support his family.

        This statement is absurd. It is common knowledge husband has to work, and most often not, so does the woman. So please. hmm

          I dunno Cags....  I have to say I see a huge heapin' helpin' of humor in the fact that an unmarried man is telling married women what a good husband must do.  I honestly can't tell whether you are being ironic in all of this or not.  big_smile

          I agree that the woman should help support the family, also. It should be a shared responsibility.

      Cagsil, I agree that a husband should be trustworthy, patient, accepting, a listener, and conversationalist. You are so right on those. If those things stood that way many women would be blessed and there wouldn't be many divorces.

      SomewayOuttaHere, Sex is a big must have. Men seem to blame the woman as being the one to always deny it. I have found from having conversations with girlfriends that alot of men are the ones that are saying "No!" Hard to believe but true.

      Cagsil I agree whole heartedly with the comments made about what a man needs to be, the exact way a woman should be too. I relationship should be approached from the aspect that each person is on a journey of discovery, therefore expect nothing from each other and gain everything.

    My husband is a good husband. He loves, honors and respects me, helps me grow, gives me support through rough times, and makes me laugh every day. He is my best buddy and we can share most everything, yet encourage each other to do some things independently so that when we see each other again at the end of the day there's more to share. I thank God for him every day am and truly blessed to have him as my spouse.

    A good husband must be responsible.He has to make sure that he gives the care and love that his wife deserves. And he should be understanding and honest to his wife to make their marriage last.

    I guess I'am the bad apple in the barrel.
    I'm not the least bit interested in intimacy, to me its creppy.
    Last time we had sex was 25 years ago. Wife is not happy about that or the other things in our marriage. But after 43 years of marriage I have become hardened by it all.
    Now to old to even talk about sex and god see our selves naked.
    YUCK !!!!!! I don't want to even touch her body. I will continue to be me not say a word, fix things around the house, cook, help with the cleaning. And when there is nothing else to do go hide in the basement.
