Mr and mrs matters
I was speaking with a friend of mine last night, he's a husband and father of two. He's a good guy very exceptional and quite a hands on husband and dad. He's not a 100% though and that applies to us all anyway. So I asked on a random note if his wife appreciated a particular gesture of his and his response was stunning to me. He said like all women she didn't appreciate the gesture or any of his gestures per Se.She may say thank you but probably feels its her right and that many men ie husbands out there would do same!
He may be exaggerating a bit but it got me thinking, that statement or inference is one my husband constantly accuses me of. So I wonder is it peculiar to all we women? Are we really expected to show profuse thanks when our husbands perform their duties? Of course this my mean different things to different people eg if he pays the rent its his duty am I as his wife to add an extra piece of meat to his supper in gratitude ? Or shag him for an extra 10mins or just say well done my dear?
I remember reading a blog post where the lady talked about how she kinda soothed her man with extra loving after he paid the children's school fees. While I must agree that it probably was good of her to do so etc sometimes I wonder if it is necessary? I usually just say a perfunctory thanks after some duties are performed by my hubby. Should I be making a new year resolution to change in that area?
I'd also like him to thank me profusely when I serve his meals too :D
