Men: Some assembly required

A book recommendation

Some of the things that annoy us about other people are simply that we donít understand why they do them. Most of the time people do not set out to annoy but there is just that little something which we canít stand. Not such a problem if we can avoid the person in that situation but in marriage there is no getting away from anything.

Of course if we know we do something which annoys our husband we can do our best not to expose him to it. Even little things can grate over time and a little care and consideration can bring great relief. Our husbands love us too and make the reciprocal effort. We may not even realise.

 

I found it so helpful and I have used it to help other women too.

Some times there are bigger things though, and it may take someone else to explain to you why your husband behaves that way. This leads me to recommend the book Men: some assembly required (A womanís guide to understanding a man) by Chuck Snyder (Further details below). My copy has been dropped in the bath by one of my children but I have no intention of throwing it away because I found it so helpful and I have used it to help other women too.

Yes it is written by a man, but he understands women very well. I laughed my way through this book as he described the things that my husband does which I didnít understand (and those things my brother does who has quite a different personality). My husband thought he would read the book to find out what was so funny and didnít laugh at allóhe just couldnít see himself in it and it didnít explain to him the new insights that I had gained.

Your queries about your husband may be quite different but I am sure you will find it helpful too.

On reading this book, there were several really important eye opening moments for me in understanding my husband, as well as lots of little things. I have found the knowledge of knowing why he behaves that way made all the differenceóthese things donít annoy me at all now because I understand why. Your queries about your husband may be quite different but I am sure you will find it helpful too.

We were and are happily married and none of these things was a problem to us but it has just made the way a little more smooth for me over the years since. I highly recommend it and hope you find it as enjoyable and helpful as I did.
