Today’s Man is lacking in Marital Skills

Angry HusbandMen in long-term relationships that are going a bit sour, might want to read our top 10 tips on how to keep your sweetheart sweet. If you’re already as happy as Larry and forever in your partner’s good books, then you won’t want to read down any further than here.

When Men Change the way they look at things,
the things Men look at Change

Various reports over the years have found that older men are often discontented with their marriage yet very few speak out or try to find ways to fix things.

Henpecked HusbandPeace-keeper or Henpecked to Hell?

Men around 50ish tend to go along with stuff they secretly object to just to keep harmony in the home. Others simply do as they’re told, or else! Either or, both of the above constitute a typical henpecked man, but men fearing their female partners is not a new phenomenon.

It often looks as though the western male (principally the older man somewhat stuck in his ways), is walking on eggshells wearing slippers made of lead around his own home, but why? Just so he can avoid marital mayhem!
