sometimes if guys confide in other friends instead of wife, it may b due to wife's tone of voice (e.g. start to nag). that's what my husband told me . so i try not to nag when my husband tell me his prob. but sometimes diffi . so sometimes he starts to keep quiet, look troubled. have to alw b observant about it. then remind myself not to nag.
sometimes guys confide in other friends instead of wife, it may b also 'cause the guy feels that tell wife also no use, 'cause not matured enough to understand or analyse things w him. that's what some of my guy friends told me. vice versa. 'cause some of us r thinker, some r not.
sometimes i confide in my guy friends than my husband also. partly 'cause i want hear other guys' pt of view. also dont want my husband to worry. sometimes it's 'cause husband is very tired n stressed already. dont want to add more stress to him.
i still find that it's better to confide in other half than other ppl. that would b the best. but if didnt, sometimes, still ok . most impt is not to bottle things up. purely confide in other ppl, i still can accept.
