Re: Men Doing More Chores Increases Divorce?
This is one of those "you oughta be a fly on the wall" moments.
This weekend was a classic example. We're going to DC to renew wife's passport. The picture requirements are such that a Walmart type passport picture will not do. We use Sears or JCPenney photo studio instead. Alas, they either closed down or don't do passport pictures any more. Needless to say she goes into full scale emotional convulsions while I quickly find a local pro photographer who's open on Sundays and does this kind of work. $30 later problem addressed.
Was this appreciated? Expletive deleted not. There simply is no place in some people's mind for "appreciation".
You seem to have a very narrow set of behavior expectations based on what you consider typical and atypical behavior. In reality, the bounds of atypical behavior are leagues apart.
What did you say or do to reassure her emotionally?
This is for an American passport, correct? We always go to Walgreen's for that.
One of the deepest feminine pleasures is when a man stands full, present, and unreactive in the midst of his woman's emotional storms. When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man
