There is a lot of focus in the media when it comes to women not being able to voice their opinions in their marriage in an assertive manner. However, this can also be just as much of a dilemma for men. Many men feel as though their spouses will shut them out, so they put up a wall that is hard to get through instead of telling them that they are here for them if they need to discuss anything.
- Many experts argue that men lose their voices during their marriages far more often than women do.
- A lot of males handle a lot of criticism and intensity without assertively speaking up for themselves.
- In order to keep a healthy marriage, it is important to experiment with new methods overtime.
“My own research on marriage and coupling up indicates this: Many men tolerate too much criticism, intensity, and negativity from their partner, rather than taking a firm and loving position on their own behalf.”
