A Game Wives Play

Step #1: Deprive your faithful husband of sex. (Note the word faithful. Some husbands go and get it elsewhere.)

Step #2: Push his buttons - you know, the ones that get him angry.

Step #3: Chastise him for being grumpy or losing his temper, and cite his lack of cheery perfection as a reason to not "reward" him with sex.

Step #4: Repeat

Now, I know what some of you are thinking. "1) But that doesn't make sense. 2) That means she goes without sex, too, and women like sex, too. 3) You must be a bad lover or repulsive."

Let's take those in order.

1) Women don't have to make sense.
2) There are plenty of prescription drugs that suppress normal sexual desire/enjoyment, and some women like other things more than sex.
3) Yeah, that's what I'd be thinking if it weren't for all of that ever so wrong fornication I perpetrated in my wayward youth. Actually, the women were always or almost always the initiators, but I was certainly a willing participant. Those women really seemed to enjoy it as much as I did, if not more.

What does she have to lose? She knows I'm not going to stray. She knows she's going to have her bills paid one way or another. It probably hasn't occurred to her that although she wants her children to grow up, avoid fornication, and marry, I can't, in good conscience, encourage my son to marry. Not with my own experience, not with those of other men I know, not unless the laws and culture change to be less hostile to husbands.

    "She knows she's going to have her bills paid one way or another."

    She won't change unless that changes. Hire a lawyer, draft a post-nuptial agreement that places some financial responsibility on her, get her to sign it. It won't solve all the problems but it will solve some.

I have to approve your comment before it appears. I won't reject your comment for disagreement - I actually welcome disagreement. But I will not allow libelous comments (which is my main reason for requiring approval) and please try to avoid profanities. Thanks!
