If the wife's happy, life's happy

Women are a kind of their own. They are funny species. They are different and so not like men. Not meant in a mean way, like they would be better than men, but they are just totally different. Women want to be treated like princesses. They look out for the knight in shining armor. They want a man who treats them with respect and love and dignity. Happy women make happy men, right?

We have two girls. Quite often I wonder what kind of men they will encounter in their lives. Will they love them for who they are? Will they treat them with respect? Will they provide for our daughters and take good care of them? Standards in life are changing. Women no longer stay at home to take care of their families. They have a career of their own, making their own money and having their own wishes. They don't have as much time to spend with their family, as they need to work out at the gym, socialize with their friends and attend work conferences. It's very important then, to have great communication with their spouses, so there's still quality time with the people they love.

Over time, things have changed quite a bit for men. They no longer know what their position in the family is. They are no longer the only money making person in the family. Their wives are not ignorant nor submissive. They have a mind of their own and they want to be equal to their spouses. Don't you think that is confusing to all men out there? They no longer know how to act or what to do or how to define their position in the household. The gap between men and women is getting smaller year after year. I believe that's a good thing. Women shouldn't be holding up their hand to get their allowance or weekly budget. Things have changed. Life has changed. People are still changing..

I still don't know what to think about all of these changes. We won't know about this progress until many years later. Will our daughters be modern women? Will they have a career? Will they get married to a husband who respects their wishes or will they be submissive and do whatever their husbands wants them  to do? I hope our girls will be assertive and able to make up their minds.

Because after all: if the wife's happy, life's happy..
