I Think My Wife Is Mad At Me
If you think your wife is mad at you, there is a good chance she is. Whether it's your fault or hers or a combination of both is another matter entirely.
However, there are some telltale signs I've noticed in my relationships over the years. I'm not saying I'm 100% correct here, but these sorts of things serve as a warning sign for me that the shit is going to hit the fan sooner than later.
Here are 5 the things to watch for.
1.) Her Behavior In Bed
Firstly, and probably the first thing that came to your mind, is sex. You and your wife are no longer having it. It's been however long, you want her badly, and you don't understand why she isn't sleeping with you anymore. This is the first and most obvious sign.
Where on the bed is she lying? Does she slither into the covers and sleep as far away from you on the bed as possible? If so, there's definitely something wrong. Whether you want to get to the bottom of it or delude yourself into thinking everything is okay is your prerogative.
What about when you try to snuggle up to her? No reaction? Not a good sign, dude.
2.) Her Facial Expressions
Facial expressions are a big give away. People actually communicate more with body language and facial expression than they do words.
First, the look of disinterest and boredom. If your wife looks disinterested or bored with you, she is. Either that, or she just doesn't give a shit anymore. Either way, it's a sign of things to come.
If your wife looks like she just smelled a fart every time you come home from work, there's probably something you need to address. You definitely don't want your wife looking at you as if you're an animated turd every time you walk through the front door.
I've lived through this before. Not too much fun.
3.) My Wife Keeps Talking About Another Guy
Women are allowed to talk about other people. This includes other men. If you're the jealous type, that's too bad--it's just something you're going to have to live with, unless you want to give in to being a weakling and an emotional cripple.
However, if there is one specific gentleman your wife keeps talking about on a daily basis, hour after hour, that's something that should concern you a little bit. Especially if it's the first time it has ever happened. It's not hard to tell when one person is infatuated with another.
Maybe you're ignoring her, boring her, or not giving her the attention she needs. Maybe you're in a bad relationship and your wife is just an ass. Still, this is something to look out for.
4.) My Wife Keeps Starting Fights With Me
Couples are going to fight, there's no doubt about that. Many times, it can be healthy for a relationship. Things get put onto the table, and problems are hashed out.
However, if the fighting is constant and over trivial things, there is probably something wrong with your relationship.
If your wife is shooting laser beams out of her eyes and breathing fire at you because you left the cap off of the toothpaste, then she's probably not very happy with you all around. And if your whiskers being left on the bathroom sink is enough to send her flying into a murderous rage, something needs to change.
5.) My Wife Criticizes Everything I Do
If your wife seems sarcastic or dismissive of almost everything you say and do, this is a sure sign she is bored, fed up, and sick of you.
I'm not talking about joking around here, as many healthy couples can do. That's a good thing. I'm talking about someone who sarcastically dismisses your hopes and dreams, cracks scathing jokes about your family, makes fun of your friends on a daily basis, and any other sort of thing along these lines.
I've found for myself and many others that this is a sign that they want out and can't bear to be around you any longer. Again, whose fault that is I can't say, but no one should have to live in a situation like that, man or woman. It's not good for either party.
So, What Do I Do Now?
I've not the slightest idea, dude. Sorry about that. I'm just giving you things to look out for. Things you shouldn't ignore or brush off.
Maybe it's time you have a conversation with her. Maybe it's time for marriage counseling. Maybe it's time that both of you move in a different direction. Something can and should be done, though. We don't live long enough to wallow in miserable relationships.
Make something happen, or don't. That's up to you.

As an ex-wife, I can honestly say the thing that used to make me most angry was when he used to do things to sabotage what I was trying to achieve. Right from watching me starching a linen tablecloth for a family event and then dirtying it by spilling coffee on it within 30 seconds of it going on the table, I mean if you're not going to help fine, but the least you could do is go and have your coffee in the kitchen and spill it in an area which won't mean I have to starch another cloth. To having an affair, begging forgiveness for it, but still wanting to email the other woman. He was offered a reasonable compromise, in that I said that if he felt that he must email her then I should see the content before it was sent. No, could not abide by what was asked of him and went behind my back and contacted her, it would have been forgivable if the content had been along the lines of: sorry I want to save my marriage and therefore we have to break contact, it was along the lines of: the Mrs makes life unbearable, but agrees with me staying in contact.
Most women get angry because the guy disrespects them by sabotage or by not listening to them. Really did not understand mine, if you have forgiveness for cheating and your wife allows you to continue to email the mistress with the proviso that you must show all posts before sending, then wouldn't you either show the wife the mails or not communicate at all. It seems to me that many men seem to take a reasonable compromise as a signal to walk all over women.

Made me consider some things for "conversation"... thanks

Blake......Great sense of humor!....This is too real for comfort. I had to chuckle all the way through this funny hub.
The short clips are a bit over the top. Could this be why men see women as Hysterical psyche patients? LOL. No disrespect to my own gender, but that husband who needed to rotate his tires, should have definitely taken his wife on the lake........and come back to shore without her.
Thanks for the laughs, Blake....Up+++

Well at least your cautious about your envelope, this is a good sign of discernment. This is a very good side of your work, and it is one of those topics that men will need honest advice about...and women. Good stuff.

Thanks, swilliams. Was trying to take a goofier approach here, so I'm glad you picked up on it.
Not sure how far I can push the envelope here.

This article is very funny Blake! Great job! It's nice to hear insight from a man. I love your honesty at the end, which made this article entertaining! Loved the use of your pictures. (In the video) "I just want to get my tires rotated."Hilarious! Voted up!
