#9: Comparisons and Expectations

Another core reason why you are in an unhappy marriage is that you might be expecting too many things from your husband. You deviously demoralize or pressurize him by comparing him with other men or marriages.

You might believe that this strategy will be helpful for you in making your husband understand your desires in a better way, but unfortunately it’s not the case. I was guilty of doing this too because I would compare my husband to other men; however, it was too late when I realized that I had successfully driven him away.

The creation of expectations, especially on the basis of comparisons with other men and marriages could lead to devastating outcomes. It will only anger and pressurize your husband rather them assisting him in understanding your viewpoint.
