10 Reasons Why My Wife Hates Me

Are you someone who often thinks: My wife hates me! Are you wondering why your wife hates you? Here are some reasons she might not be too happy with you.

10 Reasons Why My Wife Hates Me

1. When you go right to “fix it” mode.

It’s not easy to listen without wanting to immediately fix the problem for your spouse. I get itI’m wired that way too. But it’s important to listen to your wife with great concern, give her a touch to let her know you’re there, and when she’s dumped it all out there, let her know that it must be hard.

Communicating to your wife with this kind of care will go a long way to open her up in a way to receive your advice or problem-solving. Always make sure she knows you’ve listened, you care, and you empathize with the hardship of the matter before trying to fix it for her. Your concern to fix it in the first place is admirable but make sure to put her needs to be heard and cared for first.

2. When you don’t balance your hobbies and personal life well.

We all need a place to de-stress or have for ourselves in the busy chaos of this world. There’s nothing wrong with a hobby but a hobby can become unhealthy for any relationship when it starts to consume too much time. Playing video games or golfing all day on a Saturday, every Saturday, probably isn’t the best way to spend the limited free time you have. Or plopping onto your recliner and flipping on the TV as soon as you get home every night until you go to bed isn’t considered time well spent. If you’ve found a hobby you enjoy, make sure it doesn’t get in the way of your relationships with your spouse or family. Find healthy ways to manage it and put your family first.

3. Asking for a compliment.

Sometimes a girl just needs to be told she’s pretty. The world is tough on us and we can be our own biggest critics. A compliment can really go a long way and give your wife the pep in her step for the day. If we don’t get that, we’ll often ask. If we have to ask if we look nice in our dress, it’s time to step up your game. Be a husband who showers his wife with compliments and adoration on a daily basis so she never has to ask.
