Why do men act like babies when they are sick?

My hubby is getting over being sick and he's been acting like a baby. Anyone else sickhubby like this or is it just mine.

  • If it's only when he's sick, you're a lucky woman. I really think it's because they have been used to being taken care of, and women are used to taking care of others. Started with his mama.

  • Oh God yes, they all do this, mine thinks he is always in his death bed, and his symptoms are always the worse than anyone else.

  • Must be just the three posters here. My husband acts perfectly fine when he's sick. He goes to work, he gets things done around the house. He's just sick.

    This is yet another bonus for marrying a man and not a 13 year old boy.

  • YES YES YES did I say YES! They act like the world is coming to an end and they can't do anything for themselves. They need to be waited on hand and foot and have to be cared for all the time lol. I actually get a kick out of it sometimes because he wants to be so needy.
