How wonderful life is when you are in the world. Sadly, that is not the case according to recent studies. One would think that work or children would be the main cause of women getting stressed over but that is not true. According to a recent study it is the husbands that actually stress women out more than either work or children!
Stay At Home
Sounds easy enough does it not? Well, that is not the case when you are a mom looking after a toddler or two. They are a handful. That coupled with taking care of the house and cooking moms are practically working full time!
Moms across the nation were involved in the survey and they are very clear about their stress levels being on the high side of the scale. Surprisingly, almost half of them claimed that it was because of their husbands and not the children.
Too Much Work
Women in the survey claimed that the main reason they are stressed is because the work load exceeds their physical capabilities and that starts to take a toll on their mental state. Most of the work is offloaded to the wives and the husbands relax.
While the house is generally looked over by the house mom that does not mean that the house daddy should not chip in when needed. The mom is human after all and she needs all the help she can get to keep the house and family fit.
Till Death - Good Riddance
Studies show that the health of the partner is tied to the stress they take. So much so that when the wife dies the husband is left with the responsibilities and stress. If the husband dies the wife becomes healthier.
Avoid Murder - Help Please
So the general consensus is that men need to help around the house otherwise the wives start to get too stressed to properly function. This is to the point where the lack of a husband in the same environment is better for their health.
Men Are Just Men
It is not entirely their fault. That is just how they are wired. They are big and dumb and sometimes that is enough. They need to be told specifically what to do and how to do it so they do not mess things up.
We Don't Blame Them
The wives do not blame them entirely they usually let things get out of hand over the principle "I can do it better" and that just makes the male counterpart ignore duties. This then leads to a serious experience gap the male finds impossible to fill.
How To Help
Lighten the load on the mistress of the house. Help around the house. Divide tasks and take care of the children while she relaxes. That is going to help the both of you out in the long run. It will also help you two bond.
Give Them Time
Do not just plop down on the couch when you get home. Take time out of your day and sit with your woman. Ask them about how they feel and if they need any help. It is the key to making their day better.
Spend time with your wife. Get a baby sitter to look after the kids and take her out for dinner and a movie. Take long walks in the park and hold hands. Make her feel like she is not just a slave in a home and she is the person you love.
Give Her Compliments
To keep the wife at home happy you need to be constantly supportive and understanding of her needs and efforts. Be nice to her whenever you get the chance and always remember to keep time for the both of you to sit and talk.
It Is Your House As Well
Always remember a little helping hand goes a long way. Be sure to help around the house because you are living there too. This is not only going to get you brownie points for later it is going to make your wife happy as well!
Happy Wife Happy Life
Keep your wife happy. Keep yourself happy. She is looking after the house and kids all day long and when you get back be sure to bring her something to show you have been thinking about her all day. That just makes her appreciate what she does more.
You two are a unit and you need to do things together. Be sure to keep it in balance and be communicative with each other. If you see your wife struggling be the first one to help her out and make sure that things are proper.
