if your a widow does it bother you when

a bunch of women bash their husbands for no good reasons at all?
i read posts about little petty things that some women complain about & it burns my a$$ .
they should be happy that they still have their mate with them & not have to go through the hell that we do on a daily basis.

  • I can totally see where you are coming from. But regardless of how much you love someone, you are going to get aggrivated and stressed and need to vent about them. I think its a natural thing. I don't think its that they don't appreciate their husbands.

  • I agree... they won't really know what they have until its gone.... i hope i never have to experince that... but with my husband being a paratrooper trying to go ranger... i am going to have plenty more scares...

    my husband drives me crazy sometimes but i love him sooo much and wouldnt want anyone else!!

  • They're just venting. I'm sure their husbands do the same. When it comes down to it, I think they love their men unconditionally.

  • I'm sorry. It must be very hard. I only complain about silly little things like laundry on the floor. I only kid though. I don't mean it. Sometimes it's all good natured joking and isn't meant to be b*tching.

    I understand where you are coming from, I hope things get easier for you.

  • I do complain sometimes, and your question has served to make me think. I do have a wonderful husband and I don't know what I would do if I lost him. I will say that i tend to vent to others so that I don't vent to him. meaning when he is with me I am perfectly happy with him and we never fight because I blew off a little steam on cafemom or whichever.

  • I'm sorry that it makes you feel that way. Honestly, I'm not a widow so I don't know how it feels. But can I ask you without being insensitive if you did it when your husband was alive? I think we all do it and more so here because it is a women's environment and we feel more comfortable and feel as if there are more sympathetic ears to our situations than maybe with our families? I'm sorry for your loss.

  • I'm sorry! I can only imagine how much that hurts too read.

    I am not a widow and it makes me mad when wives bash thier husbands. Just because they aggirvate us sometimes, is no excuse for the level of husband bashing I see here.

    Anon#1- It is possible to be aggrivated at your spouse without bashing them and putting them doown and talking bad about them. As a mature adukt, I like to think that I can try to control my responses and nt be controlled by them.

    Anon#2 I d not bash/badmouth my husband and I know my husband does not do it about me. Maybe 'their' husband do the same because it's always being done to them.
