Yet when a husband gives his wife 'constructive criticism' it is no longer advice but warrants a 'Dont tell me what to do response'? Can someone recommend a good book that will help me understand the female mind..specifically in marriage? Thank You!

I don't know about the book thing, but you'll never understand the female mind. Not to mention that each female mind is different.

Best advice I can give you: They're all crazy. Don't try to understand them all, just try to understand the one you're dating.

Ever heard that saying, "When Momma's not happy, nobody's happy."?

I seriously hate to tell you this but there is no such book that exists for men or women. Each human is individual in their thoughts, actions, deeds and beliefs. What one thinks is fine to speak and call it advice another takes as criticism. It is a tough place to be but happens to everyone dang near every moment of a relationship with anyone not just a spouse, girlfriend, Mother, Father or child, toss in friends, co workers, delivery people, the guy next door and anyone else you come in contact with and it is quite the mix of paradoxal unpredictability.

I learned that from listening to Dr. Drew and Adam Carolla who kept me awake along dark, forested I-5 during a long interstate drive into Seattle.

That same nagging, BTW, is one of the major reasons men leave. I know, after a while, I would.

Next time, leave an anonymous note in the mailbox. She'll never know it's you.

Every woman is different. And I'm sorry to break this to you - but we are all crazy. Not just women. Men, too. Every single person is a little bit crazy in their own special way. How to deal with things? Communication. Sit down and have a talk. Tell her how you are feeling. Don't accuse or blame - just tell her what's going on. Work through it together. Find a way together.

Having to deal with nagging from his wife was supposedly part of the curse that was put on Adam (man) for giving into temptation from Eve (woman) to eat the forbidden fruit.
