For me, it might be refusing to be employed. Sharing the breadwinning. I think ideally in any marriage partners are almost equal in economic status. When there is inequality, one might become arrogant, the other feeling powerless.
I don't mind sharing the household duties and looking after the kids. So in this respect I am suited to being married to a career woman. Which is what my wife is.
I witnessed my mother feeling lack of economic power. She worked part time cleaning even she had 7 kids. What a superwoman!
But these days, one or two kids is the norm. We don't have any kids. So both should work. I'm the lower salaried one. But I still work at least.

Not respect her husband.

Women love to be reassured that they are loved, most men want, even need to know that there wife respects them.

What do you mean that you don't mind sharing household duties and looking after the kids...but you don't have any kids?

I never saw in my wife that she was expected to pitch in on bills. That's the man's job where I come from. I even went as far as to tell her that if she chose to ever get a job, that she could keep her money because why would her getting a job relieve me from my manly duties? It doesn't.

In your situation, it sounds like you should help your wife to go into business for herself. You can make it happen with the slightest bit of inspiration. Girls our age are too old to be working for someone else, Brother.

Manly answer bro. 😆
My marriage is working anyway. We are married now for 30 years. I must be doing something right ...

Я think if you want to have peace in your family - you have to be both in Jesus Christ. Marriage is not easy way, but if you have love and Jesus Christ in your hearth - everything is possible.

Indicate contempt for her partner.
Research shows that expressions of contempt for the partner are CONSISTENTLY RELIABLE indicators of the beginning of REAL trouble... all these above activities and actions would follow EXPRESSIONS OF CONTEMPT. The moment those show up you've got a REAL problem!

Trying to look more masculine.

Fun Fact #289 As I understand it, men were the first to wear the high heels! Women started wearing them to look tough and more masculine.
