What's the deal with women and marriage...
I spoke with a female friend yesterday who has been married for only a year and is "having problems".
Of course the issues are with HIM...I always say you never really have the full picture when you only get one side of the story. The issues seem to be communication as well as expectations. Mind you they only dated for about a year far as I can tell before marrying.
She thinks he is insecure and that he feels she doesn't need him. She's a lawyer and travels a lot. So she does well financially. I don't know if it's all about the money but it could be since some men do place their manhood in their wallets.
She said that they seem to keep having the same arguments when she feels that they have been resolved. I said if they were resolved then you wouldn't still be having them.
But in my view it's a matter of growth. They may have not had a good foundation to begin with and no matter how long you date IMHO things change when you get married...tell me you don't know of a couple that dated for years but got married and were divorced in less then a year.
There is GOING TO BE a period of adjustment...and it doesn't happen overnight. My wife and I are on year 3 and we are STILL adjusting.
My wife has a girlfriend that got married less then a year ago and is also calling to "vent" about the changes and issues they are having.
ARE WOMENS EXPECTATIONS ABOUT MARRIAGE GROUNDED IN REALITY OR FANTACY?
Do women really think there are men on white horses that come and take them away to live happily ever after? These women are educated, professional, well to do people but what gives....
