Gentlemen – some of you have been lied to.
Someone told you a while ago that they key to a happy marriage was the mantra, “Happy Wife, Happy Life”.
It might even have been someone you trusted, or looked up to, that gave you this advice. I’ve even heard other marital therapists repeat it, sadly.
The implication with this cliché, and what makes it so insane is this: If I can figure out a way to make my wife happy, then I will be happy.
