The Challenges Men Face in Marriage
Men are configured uniquely.The way a man reason is not the same with a woman.What might pose a challenge to a woman might be fun to a man, but as unique as every gender is, there are challenges peculiar to each gender.
We present a list of challenges that will confront any man in marriage.
- Attending To Your Children’s Home Work
It can pose a challenge to a man in marriage.After the day’s job, you are tired and probably worn out and needs rest. To avoid this challenge from becoming a big issue, you must plan them as part of your schedule daily
- Parenting Teenage Children
They always want to be free.They like to exercise their perceived law of freedom to do whatever they desire but men naturally want to be in charge and here comes the friction.To solve this, be the focus, stand your feet on the ground and show understanding.
Balancing Work And Marriage:
Most men never put into consideration this aspect as they get married, you need to learn about work-life balance, get good materials on this and live a balanced life avoiding marriage destruction.
- Extra Financial Burden
This is similar to financial management but differs in the sense that this one has to do with the extra money you have to spend and the additional bills you have to pay because your family has increased the very day you get married.It simply means you need to spend more and this always come with so many challenges that need patience and hard work to resolve.
- Handling In-Laws
A man is used to dealing with his Parents and siblings but after getting married you have to learn to deal with other set of people that you cannot avoid, your In-Laws.They will come with all sort of demands and challenges.To overcome any challenge this might pose, you must come to the reality that they are have become part and parcel of you and must be handled as such.
- Adjusting To A New Lifestyle
Once a man gets married, the lifestyle immediately changes.Most things you used to do freely before can no more be easily done. Even before you can go to watch a football match, you will need to at least inform your wife and her approval is required.
7.Pregnancy and Baby Mid-Night Cries
When your wife becomes pregnant, it is another phase of marriage.She might not be able to do some things she uses to do, she might even change in total outlook. When she eventually gives birth, another phase entirely. The Baby’s cries at night can be frustrating even some Babies can be funny waking up more than four times before morning and as a man, you have work to do in the office the next morning. You must prepare very well for this before your wedding and exercise maximum patience
- Taking orders
Men are more comfortable giving orders. It is challenging when a man needs to take orders from a woman.A man’s ego will always show up and resist orders expect with monetary gain but when it is coming from a woman (wife) it is difficult to handle especially for a proud man. Orders like: “Don’t sit down on that Chair, I just cleaned it”
“It’s weekend, You can’t go out today, we are staying at home together”
“You must follow me to Church tomorrow”
The solution to all these problems is for you to get used to it and apply maturity in your response or action.
