How many times have you heard wives complaining that their husbands are actually like an additional child? In fact, it has been observed that husbands stress wives more than their young children. More than 7,000 mothers were questioned in the States for a survey and more than half of them were of the opinion that their husbands were the source of their greatest stress and not their children.
The reason why husbands are worse than children is that they are adults and they should not behave like this. They have to know better and not throw tantrums and such, which is much more commonplace than you’d think. The amount of stress that mothers face on a daily basis is much higher than what you’d expect. Being 8.5 out of 10. They just seem to be overwhelmed and crowded with so many things to do that it seems that there is never enough time to accomplish it all.
For many of them having a husband seems like a whole new job. And they are apprehensive of the time when the husbands finally come home. Women feel most of the burden of the household chores as they feel the most responsible towards their parenting as well as household duties. Most men don’t bother to contribute at all, and if they do they seem to need constant attention and appreciation. Women would rather do the work themselves in the time it takes for them to make their partner feel validated enough.
Another reason that mothers feel the burn of parenting is because they have the major share in planning and implementing everything. Fathers need complete instructions to follow, and mothers are the ones who have to make this blueprint. All the planning is the job of the women, which is in addition to their day job and household chores. Wives are doing the needful as well as figuring out what the next step is.
Other than this, sometimes, husbands are worse than children when it comes to needing constant attention. All this seems to make marriage a much more daunting task than parenting.
