Some comment on CatinblueMM's
Catinblue MM'story is just the mirror to me though ours is not as long as yours. I always complain that we dont have over 10 words for communication with each other in week days after work, and complain that he is not as playful as when we were dating, and lots of complains... But, but, I know that he still cares about me and cares about our family, this is the most important thing in the marriage!
Understanding your man is the key for your successful marriage! I think that the communication in the marriage is a kind of art, men usually express themself with action instead of talk, women like to talk and then feel satisfied. So bring what kind of topic to your man depends on you, because you are the one knowing him most.
There are some words, perhaps, I would like to share with you,"Your man wants you to feel good for two reason:
(1)He knows his life is easier when you are happy
(2)When you feel happy he feels like a hero
In general, I believe that your man would like to be relax and confident from you first before you request him for everything. How can you create the situation? Well, Only you can change into a fair and lovely lady because your man dont need any strong career woman at home! Good luck to your marriage!
