  • Because women know that their husband will tell them whatever they think their wives want to hear. But a mother will say the same thing, only nicer and in a way that the wife can relate to.

  • I want to know why guys think that, "What's your opinion" equates to "Please, tell me what to do". If I ask DH for his opinion, it's because I want to know what he's thinking, not because I'm asking for him to definitively solve a situation for me. I'm collecting data - and I might wish to collect data from more than just him. If my mother's advice/opinion makes more sense than his, I'd be silly not to go with that.

  • Men have the mindset that when asked for an opinion, they need to give/find the solution.

    Women don't want the problem solved (we can do that ourselves), they want to vent, talk, and brew over it until they are ready to decide but in the meantime, they want someone to talk 'at' not necessarily talk 'to'.

  • My Hubby tells me the truth, whether it hurts or not... I don't have a Mother to turn to, or anyone else for that matter, so I appreciate his honesty, otherwise I wouldn't repsect anything he say's if I know it's BS just to cover his arse....

  • In my ex's case, it was because my mother had known me longer, was more mature in her thinking and thought further about potential problems and/or consquences, where my ex would say, "Yeah sure babe, whatever you think is best."
