Many men complain about their wife acting stressed out all the time. And sometimes the words they use are not that nice. Basically, many husbands want to know: “My wife and I both work, but when I get home, it’s not like a fire drill for me. For her, though, it’s like the end of the world if we don’t stay on schedule, if the dishes are in the sink, if we eat late or the kids are playing for a few minutes instead of brushing their teeth. What’s her problem? If she wasn’t so stressed out, our home life would be so much more relaxed.”
Here are some reasons why your wife finds it difficult to ‘calm down’ on a regular basis.
1. Women are judged differently than men are
If your kid is wearing mismatched clothes and has pen on his face, and you bring him to school, everyone is like, ‘Awww! Dad did such a good job!’ This is something that involved dads actually find kind of insulting. But if a mom brings a kid into school looking a mess, the teachers, the other parents, and anyone else within a mile radius is thinking, ‘Hmm, is she a closet alcoholic or something? Poor kid.’
