For example, when my wife and I get in an argument or something, and I hurt her feelings, I’ll bring her flowers or make a nice gesture, etc. I usually take the time to explain to my son why I did those things.
@snorks sorry but a woman with kids in school, extra curriculars or teens with part time jobs does as much commuting as a full time worker in addition to her own work, domestic chores and child care. It isn't 'negligible' at all and women are telling you they won't keep putting up with it.
@user14 I believe there are a lot of men who aren't even aware they are abusing their partner. Who see their control, jealousy and belittling as a normal relationship. Perhaps those men won't read this but I hope their partner does and at least has her experience validated.
@kkdd While I see the intent of this comment I don't agree. I see this all the time -people assuming that men haven't been 'trained' properly as teens. Basically that is just saying that men don't contribute fairly because a woman (mum) didn't do a good enough job! Somehow we Blame women yet again for male behaviour. Let's not.
