Does Your Wife Criticize You

Do you have a sweet, loving, respectful wife?  Or does your wife criticize you?

You know what type of wife and life you want, don't you?

Better to live alone in the desert than with a quarrelsome and nagging wife.  Proverbs 21:19

Do you think that once you are married that it your wife's job to criticize you?  That is what we see all the time in the media, isn't it? It is on TV so it must be true.

Do you think it is your job in a marriage to do whatever your wife tells you to do?

Is this you? It was me, but not anymore.

We are always seeing the clueless husband who needs constant criticism from his wife in order to function. The wives on TV are so smart, so sophisticated, so with it and the husbands are normally overgrown kids who cannot seem to do anything without their wives constantly in their face criticizing their every move.

Does that seem like the way you want to live your life? 

Do you

  • Like your wife finding fault with everything you do? 
  • Enjoy her sarcasm? 
  • Feel like she seems to like dishing out the verbal jabs at you? 
  • Think she seems to think it is her right to tell you how to do just about everything you do? 
  • Think all this criticism is verbal abuse? 
  • Think you are justified in getting a divorce?
  • Feel like dying young to escape?

Overly Critical, Nagging Wives, Drive Husbands to an Early Grave

Does Your Wife Criticize You

Look at the list of what my wife used to criticize me about before I finally found the courage to leave her.

She Criticized

  • How much money I made at work.
  • The benefits I received at work.
  • The hours I worked.
  • How much I should sleep.
  • What side of the bed I slept on.
  • How I brushed my teeth.
  • How I mowed the lawn.
  • How I trimmed the edges of the lawn.
  • How fast and how slow I would drive.
  • How fast I ate.
  • How I chewed my food.
  • The clothes I wore.
  • The way I walked.
  • The way I laughed.
  • The way I talked to the kids.
  • The way I paid the bills.

It got to the point where there was nothing I did that seemed right.

It seemed like non-stop criticism where my wife was like a demanding, and demeaning coach constantly barking out order, finding fault.  But instead of the practice ending, the season mercifully ending or I quitting the team, the never ending criticism never ended.

Constantly being criticized is no way for a man, or anyone to go through life. Think hard about your life and how you want to live the rest of it. Leaving your wife might be your best option.
