    According to what I've read the number one complaint is husbands don't help out enough with house cleaning and taking care of the children.
    I imagine the next complaint has do with a huge drop off in romantic efforts designed to make the wife 'special" and overall not being more thoughtful in general.

    The common complaints goes as follows:

    (1) Does not earn enough!  Yes, there are wives who feel that their husbands are less than adequate breadwinners in comparison to the husbands of their social set, relatives, and other acquaintances.  They maintain that the husband should earn enough to support them in the style they were either used to or the style that they believe they should be financially supported.  If the husband has a job that he loves, this wife will nag him to get a job that will bring in lots of monetary rewards. 
            (a) There is a subgroup of wives who believe that they should not work as it is the husbands' duty and obligation to support her.  These wives contend that it is THEIR duty to stay at home while THE HUSBANDS earn that money.  If these husbands maintain that one paycheck is not enough, these wives consequently will lose respect for the husband, seeing them as less than men at best and as emasculated wuzzies at worst.
    (2) Not appreciating them enough.  Many wives believe that they are taken for granted by the husbands.  They maintain that their husbands see them as free maids, au pairs, and sensual go tos.  They assert that their husbands do not appreciate the things they do for them on a constant basis In their eyes, their husbands are just using them, believing that what they do, they should do without thanks.  After all, in their husbands' eyes, that is what marriage IS. 

    (3) Always wanting sex, even on demand!  Many wives complain that ALL their husbands think about is sex.  They contend that sex is on the minds of their husbands 24/7/365.  They maintain that they have other responsibilities other than sex. There is the job/career, cleaning/maintaining the household, taking care of the children, and other related duties.  They assert that these duties take a chunk out of their lives and their husbands should be mature enough to realize this and be more accommodating.

    (4) Not considering THEIR needs. Many wives assert that they are individuals beyond being wives and mothers.  However, they strongly state that their husbands refuse to see them beyond their prescribed roles.  They contend that their husbands become threatened when they want to enrich themselves educationally, careerwise, and/or in related ways. Their husbands want LITTLE WIVES, not independent women in their own right.

      Maybe these four reasons explains why there has been a rise in the "Mail Order Brides" business! :-) Love the photo! LOL!

    Dang me,

    I am primary house cleaning technician, Child Care giver, and chief breadwinner, all because I work from home. As for sex on demand, make a reservation I am just to tired.

    I need to be a traditional male and get all these benefits wives complain of.
