Are all women really THAT controlling and demanding? I dont understand. I am only 26 but my older married friends/co-workers make marriage sound horrible. I heard a married guy at work say, "when you get married, you will understand that the woman is in control",or " you better let the woman have the last word/have her way". Im sorry but i cant stand to be controlled...but i have heard similar statements from so many married men, i can see why women complain that they have to force their man to marry them and that men dont wanna get married, they just do that because it is what the woman wants.

my soon-to-be ex husband def. does not subscribe to this philosophy, (perhaps that is why things didn't work out?), but many of the happily married couples I know do, at least to some extent.

why do most married men say that the wife rules them/that she is always right?

Because they're smart???

There's a saying..."Happy wife...Happy life"...For most, if the woman is in a negative mood, it translates to no sex and them not doing their household responsibilities if they have any...Other possibilities could including bashing you to your and/or her friends and fighting in public...You might also have to waste hours of your days calling/emailing/texting them arguing the same points...

Because if you don't at least pretend she's in charge you get cut off. For a looooong time.

they are unhappy. most marriages are not happy ones. the guy is legally no longer in the drivers seat. your money and somebody elses spending is never a good arrangement. women no longer look for marriage material they look for divorce material, and that turkey is getting scarce.

I've been married to the same beautiful woman for almost 26 years. Over the years we have done "battle royales" over every issue from sex to lawn-care to child discipline to schedules.

I am in charge of a lot of things, and my wife is in charge of a lot of other things. But we've had to figure out which of us is better at being in charge of what things. For instance, it has been years since I've so much as even consulted with my wife prior to buying a vehicle - and that includes a new motorcycle. On the other hand, she buys my clothes without even asking my opinion - and you can probably figure out why.

Would I want to not be married? Absolutely not! Am I in some sort of "prison" where I just have to obey the warden? Absolutely not! My life is better, richer and fuller in every way because I am married.

Do NOT let the nay-sayers get you down.
