why are men expected to change if the woman doesn't like something?

but the woman shouldn't have to? I see it all the time on here, woman gets upset about something then the man bashing begins, even over stupid little stuff. Ridiculous.  smh.

I never expected my dh to change. I married him because of who he is and I was ok with things. About him I didnt care for. I made the juvenile mistake of thinking you can change a person once before; then i grew up lol. Maybe little things but dont count on it.

My opinion is if you love someone you will want to change little things for them

Because we are women. We go from "Aww what a keeper!" to "DIVORCE THAT LOSER" in 2.5 seconds. Our response is decided by the tone of the OP.

From what I've seen, it's usually the man that's acting like an immature idiot, that's why. IMO anyway. I think motherhood (in normal cases) causes women to step up to the plate and take care of the responsibilities that ensure a safe, happy, healthy home for her children. Men seem to have a much harder time adjusting. I guess it's all part of mother nature and how we're designed, but the bottom line is that women are capable of earning a living now, so they aren't going to put up w/ unnecessary bullshit....

well I think that is certainly the stigma on here, if DH asked me to change something I would try my best to work on it, just as he would do the same for me.

I think it goes both ways.  You need to be able to compromise in a relationship.

We both changed not just one! We talked about what are dislikes are about one another and now we are more then happy:). I think alil arguing here and there is good for a relationship . Other wise how would one know what bothers one?
