No One Knows Your Husband Well More Than You Do

[Don’t Let Anyone Make You Think Otherwise]

If your husband had spent ten years of his life living with you, that is more than enough to make you say that you know him well. You shared the same roof and the same bed. You know all the embarrassing secrets that he doesn’t usually divulge to others. Sure, he had people in his life before you, and they are a part of his past. People change with time, so with the decade you spent together, no one can tell you that they know your husband enough to correct or invalidate your thoughts.

Your husband has a family whom he shared about two decades of his life. His parents watched his every milestone, and her brother and sister had seen him struggle with adolescence. However, you are his wife, and you know the present him.

 

Reasons Why You Know Your Husband More Than Anyone:

 

You Know Your Husband More Than Your In-Laws

It is because they only know the young version of their son, and we all know that people grow up. Dreams and perspective change as we get old. We develop fears and behaviors we didn’t have when we were children.

You might hear your mother-in-law say, “I know him more than anyone. I am his mom.” This statement has truth to it. She was there when he knew nothing but happiness, and you as a parent would likely feel the same about your child. You think you know him well enough, but that’s because he is eight.

Yes, our parents know our foundation, but there are many evolving aspects that we acquire when we raise a family of our own. We experience different stressors than our parents. We meet different people and deal with various problems because the life we live in is in so many ways different from how life was 30 years ago.

 

You Know Your Husband More Than His Friends

Sometimes, the relationship of your husband with his friends may affect your marriage, especially when you feel that they are overstepping their boundaries. Your husband may confide or share things about you, but that doesn’t give them the right to have a say in the issue. Yes, they can give their opinion, but they should never meddle with your relationship.

To speak fairly, there are also some things we might not know about our husbands that his friends do. For instance, you may not pay attention to his favorite football player, and it is one of the things that he could excitingly share with his friends, especially when he knows that football doesn’t interest you. It’s just like with our girlfriends and us. They are the only ones we share our makeup brands with and absolutely not our husbands.

 

You Probably Know Your Husband More Than Himself.

However, this is a complicated thing as we tend to believe what we observe and feel. For instance, you might think he is not romantic because he doesn’t take you out on a date, buy you expensive stuff, or surprise you. However, do you really know what he thinks? What if he wants to, but he also thinks of you as someone who doesn’t want to go out because of social anxiety, you don’t want gifts because you feel it’s a waste of money and you are saving, or you hate surprises.

You know your husband as far as he expresses himself, but beyond that, you could only assume and base on past situations. Your thoughts about him depend upon what he shows you which could be confusing at times. However, don’t misunderstand confusion with not knowing him entirely.

 

Evidently, we know a person based on how much time we spent with him. However, they say that you don’t know someone until you see him under pressure. Who else sees your husband through all the stress and struggles? It’s definitely not his parents nor his friends.…

Coping With A Partner’s Mental Illness And The Family Life

When someone in the family is diagnosed with a mental illness, it becomes a family illness. It becomes a family matter altogether, regardless of who is affected. This is mainly because people turn to family first as their support system. It’s never an either-or situation where it’s better if only a certain family member experiences. But definitely, there are different challenges to it. Children experiencing depression is different from adults experiencing depression, especially parents.                                                                  

She Cheated On Me – Is It Stupid Of Me To Forgive?

I have told these words to my best friend not long ago.

In our 30 years of friendship, I have seen him cry on three occasions. First was when his mother died when we were 10. I had to share Optimus Prime with him just so he would stop messing up my pillow with his snot. The second time he cried was during his wedding day. We were waiting for his wife at the altar and he was beaming. Suddenly, his eyes were filled with tears as she walked towards him. I had to give him my hanky so that he could wipe the tears off his face.

The third occasion to which I saw him cry was when my god daughter was born. She was a preemie and her early coming gave us all quite a scare. We really thought that she wouldn’t make it and yet she did. Actually, I joined him with the tears. I love his little girl too.…
