What is Irritable Male Syndrome?
I heard an interesting statistic a while ago; 7 yrs is the average time,a marriage will last. Kind of sad. Everyone is obviously different and have their own reasons for a troubled marriage and there's too many reasons to list off in this blog, but I'm sure you are well aware of them.
The key is figuring out what it is that you can do to avoid getting into that situation. My wife and I had a couple of rocky spots a few years ago but thank goodness we took the right steps, communicated and had an open mind to change things so we could continue together and both be happy. It wasn't easy - It took patience, counseling, some lifestyle changes and a lot of listening. We are now in a much happier spot than we've ever been and love each other very much.
I bring this topic up because it seems a lot of our friends around us are going through some rough spots and it's hard to stand by and see people we care about go through it. The best we can do for them is "be there" when they want to talk and offer advice from our own experiences. One of these recent discussions lead me to discover something interesting online called (click the link) "The Irritable Male Syndrome". I shared this with our friend and she seems to think it's EXACTLY what is going on with her husband.
I found the article pretty "bang on" in a lot of areas and thought I'd share it with you. If you're having trouble trying to figure out why your husband is behaving strange, having mood swings and suddenly leaves you and the kids... maybe this will help.
