    Re: Why aren't women happy???

    Whats the point of this thread? If women arent happy they should look at their lives? Are you living for your husband or is he living ko keep you happy if it's the second one then thats why your unhappy. A womans place is in the home and if she is unhappy with where she is she should redecorate or take the kids out for a walk nstead of getting fat watching oprah and not cleaning. We gave them the right to vote and the right to work and theright to free speech and if their not happy they should ask their husband or god for guidance.

    Lord you're boring. Seriously, you need to do some work before you troll any further.

    You gave us the right to vote? I don't think you are familiar with all the Suffragettes had to do to get us the vote. And, a woman's place is not necessarily in the home - many have to work to help support their families. As for getting fat watching Oprah, the husband can help with the cleaning, if the wife is helping with the support!

    I'm quite happy, but then I have a husband who helps and we try to make each other happy! In other words, I don't rely on him to make me happy, but I work hard at making him happy, and he does the same, so it works for both of us.

    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Ask their husband? Lots of husbands out there are dumber than dirt, inconsiderate, uncouth, selfish, and so on.
    I am old enough to have seen absolute miracles, in that SOME men actually find a woman who will marry them.
    Its like the women have faith that they might be able to change their man, improve him, make something out of him that he isn't now. It says in the book of James, faith without works is dead. There are some men who are so bad that no amount of work will be enough to make him into anything better than the pig he is now.
    My one brother is so bad, tho, that he never married. I guess there isn't a woman alive that will sink that low.

    Re: Why aren't women happy???

    My wife is also caught between wanting to work (she likes having nice things) and wanting to be the perfect mom. Ultimately, in both cases, she holds herself up to an unrealistic ideal of working and being a mom. My mother did that as well, now that I think about it. However, in both cases, they could be happy very easily if they leave stuff alone, but they let guilt eat at them for not being perfect.

    One problem my wife has is that she does not let reality be imperfect. The house must be spotless at all times, she must make lots of money, she must be awesome with me in bed, she must be the perfect mom, she must be the perfect friend to her friends, etc. I try to help her understand that often a lot of these things can be achieved when you aren't looking or when you relax and you have a full set of creative and physical energy, but when you are tired, even small tasks can become monumental. She hasn't come to the same conclusion about that as I have though.

    Can you please quote the specific scripture that states that "a woman's place is in the home?" Your comment seems to be in conflict with Proverbs 31.

    Your wife hasn't figured out, yet, that you can't have everything, huh? My house is spotless for 3 days a week. The other 4 days, not so much.

    Learning to say no and identify your real priorities is an art that can save your mental health, as a woman.

    I was talking to the parent of the boy that my daughter dates, and she was bragging/bemoaning the time she spends volunteering with the band, including 16 hours per Saturday working at the local college football stadium to earn money for the band.

    I looked at her, and all I could think to say was, "I love my kids, and I'm glad that my daughter is in band, but there's no way in hell I'd do that."

    And I wouldn't. I mean that in all seriousness.

    The way I see it is often when you let go, you end up doing 90% what you meant to do anyway and you feel a lot better after. You might not get everything you want, but you usually get most things and what you need.

    I think a lot of us who have careers grew up in homes with SAH moms. And I've realized that my mom's home sets a standard of perfection that mine is never going to attain, because she was there full-time. Hell, my house would be twice as clean if I only worked 4 days a week. But, I have (really) 2 days a week to clean, fix things, do the yardwork, etc. If I do one of those things, the other two get dropped or done less well. I do mow the yard every week, we vacuum the entire house once a week, I sweep/mop once a week, and we do dishes daily. The kids have assigned house-cleaning chores. Even so, there are a lot of days when I come home from work and have to go automatically into drill sergeant mode because I live with two teenagers, 4 cats, a dog and a bunny.

    They make messes.

    However, I grew up in a perfect house. We could never make a mess, if something got broken all hell broke loose, and that is no way to live. My house will never be more important to me than my kids and their friends feeling comfortable and welcome in my home. Which is probably why there is hardly a weekend when my house isn't full of teenagers. I'm okay with that. I'll have 40 or more years to have an immaculate house when my kids are grown and gone.
