In other words, while the number of desperate housewives is not as large as the television program of the same name might make you believe, but it is fairly obvious that some 50% of married women are not truly happy. As many as 20% are so stressed out that they have no time to take care of themselves. An additional 24% is either bored or is not getting enough attention from her husband.
What can men do to help?
- Be a good husband by sharing everything - not just the great things in life but also the challenging ones, for instance, raising kids or housework.
- Understand her needs. If she is bored or starved for intimacy, ask her what you can do to make it better.
- Finally, communicate with her. Relationships end and divorces happen because couples failed to talk.
