It is almost universally true that women do most of the work in a marriage. They have the responsibility of the kids and household work alongside their own jobs. Women handle their own work, take care of the kids, help with the homework and projects, make sure the house is clean, and also make their husband’s life easier with a lot of help.
Let’s face it, children sometimes get very difficult to handle. When you have a million things to do, the sound of your kid crying and screaming because the cartoon character got a boo-boo, is a serious headache.
That being said, husbands aren’t as supportive as they should be. This pretty much adds to the problems that women face in a household. Stress about the kids and home is much less if you get a little support or help from your spouse. But husbands actually tend to be an adult version of a child. Starting from the morning, the wife keeps all her husband’s things ready, so that he can save time and sail through the busy day easily.
A lot of women sometimes feel like a parent to the husbands as well. This obviously gives them more stress to deal with. If only they were a little more supportive, helped with the kids while women do house errands, it would be a dream.
For some women, marriage needs just as much work as being a mother does. Researchers have studied married women with kids and found that their stress levels are 8.5 out of 10, in an average. 46% of these women have actually claimed that husbands stress them out more than their kids do. Pretty interesting, isn’t it?
3 in every 4 mothers seem to do all the housework including parenting duties. And 1 in every 5 mothers says that most of their stress comes from their husbands not being helpful.
The ‘So many things to do in so little time’ and everything happening all at once is the main reason behind all the stress that falls on women.
Researchers have also found out that after the wife passes away, the husband starts having bad health. Whereas, after the death of the husbands, the wives gradually seem to have better health and live more freely. They learn to handle the pain and stress better. This highlights the fact that husbands are comparatively way too dependent on the wives.
Do you have such issues in your marriage? Are you too stressed about everything? Here are some tips for having a less stressful life.
1.Firstly, the husband and the wife both equally belong to this marriage. The kids belong to both of them. Then why not split the responsibilities? It would make life so much easier. Suppose the wife takes charge of the meals and preparing the kids for school. The husband can look into their homework and studies. Divide the errands, event duties, and housework. Teamwork is the key!
2.Men sometimes dream of being the best partner and the best father in the whole world. They want to help with things. But some women think men will only make things worse by helping. So, the wives do everything by themselves and get stressed. Why not allow the husbands to help in any way he can? Do it. Trust him and let him be the man he wants to be.Maybe he will make mistakes initially, but he’ll be of great help. Trust us.
3.Once the kids come into this world, the parents give all their attention to parenthood. Don’t forget about your marriage. Try to get some me-time. Take time out for being with your partner. A happy family needs a strong marriage and good parents.
Remember, you need to be happy so that you can keep your kids and partner happy. We hope these tips will help you achieve a happier and less-stressful life with your wonderful family!
