What men want most from their wives: Stop nagging

What men want most from their wives: Stop nagging



Most men wished that their wives would stop nagging as naggy wives reminded them of their mothers.

According to Shin Min evening daily, a study on online parenting magazine, sg.theasianparent.com, was carried out among 100 married men who were each asked to list what they wanted most from their wives.

On the issue of nagging, many men hoped that their wives were simply able to specify what was required of them, give them a deadline and they would get the job done dutifully. The incessant nagging does not work as they would automatically tune out once the badgering starts.

Next on the list, men wanted their wives to be more appreciative of their actions. Instead of harping on what they didn't achieve, women can focus on what they've sacrificed.

In addition, men wanted their wives to stop micromanaging their relationship with the children. If the wives keep interrupting and have the final say in every decision from which movie to watch to whether their child is allowed to eat ice-cream, the man of the household will feel he lack the rights to parenting his own child.

Here is the top 10 list of what men want of their wives:
1 - Stop nagging
2 - Appreciating their contributions
3 - Don't be a Nazi
4 - Stop guilt-tripping them
5 - Life to be less intense, more relaxed
6 - Give allowance for mistakes
7 - Lower their standard in terms of household chores
8 - Respect our personal sex life
9 - Acknowledge their presence - they deserve a say in any major decision-making
10 - Don't neglect them because of the kids

They misseed out 1 more.......

Treat each other the same as they were courting couples, guys also need attention and the feeling of being loved. So stop calling him "Daddy" infront of the kids.

Means don't gang up with in-laws or mother-in-laws to bully the husband &
Don't because the intimacy is kind of short, you say sore things about the husband, eg. cannot last longer etc etc...

Numbers 8 to 10 remind me of another article I have read on 10 secrets to having a happy marriage from http://bit.ly/5N8gNl. I agree with number 10. Wives should really spend time with their husbands and not just give time for the kids .

Re: What men want most from their wives: Stop nagging

it should help to post up the actual article

Interesting article taken off the webby:
We scoured the streets of Orchards and spoke to over 100 Singaporean dads about parenting and their relationship with their wives. This is what they had to say…

1) Stop nagging

When you nag at me, I automatically tune you out. Instead, you are better of making a list of the things you want me to do, give me a deadline, and I promise you it’ll be done! If I don’t do it, then nag at me. But not before listing it. PS: When you nag, you remind me of my mother – and that’s not necessarily a good thing!

2) Recognise our efforts

Why is it you only see the stuff that I didn’t do? What about all the things I did do? Like accompany you for all your sappy chick flicks, visit with your family on Sundays, when we all know it should be soccer day! Acknowledgement some times would be nice.

3) Don’t be a Nazi

Stop micromanaging my relationship with the kids. They are MY kids too! If I want to take them for a movie or for ice cream, I should be “allowed” to. I really hate asking you for “permission”.

4) Stop Guilting Us

I just want to have a little free time without feeling guilty that I am not spending enough time with the kids. Being Super dad and Super provider is not a walk in the park!

5) Just Chill

What’s wrong with short cuts? If we aren’t going out, why can’t the kids be in their PJ all day? And do we really have to comb her hair? Can’t it be messy for just one day? Isn’t bed head supposed to be fashionable?

6) Give us room for mistakes

Give us the opportunity to hone our parenting skills. If you keep breathing down our back every time we try to change the diaper, we’re never going to learn.

7) Your Standards…Sigh

Lower your standards for heaven’s sake. If we’ve cleaned the bathroom, and it looks clean to us, then guess what, it’s clean. Don’t get mad at us and redo it. We’re never going to offer to do it again!

8) Amore

Nothing makes us as happy as sex. Not the amazing dinner you cooked. Not the surprise holiday you planned. Not even the fact that you are willing to sit through the World Cup with us. We can live without all of that. We cannot live without sex.

9) Hello, I exist!

You are married to me. Not your mother or best friend. Discuss major decisions with me first, before you discuss it with them!

10) Where’s my wife?

I know the kids are important, but so am I. I didn’t sign up for a ten-minutes a night wife. Would it really kill you to come to bed early once a week? And no we don’t have to have sex. We can just talk (when I say we, I mean you keep quiet for once, and let me talk for a change)
