Husband Won't Fix the Car So Wife Asks Facebook
A friend on Facebook shared a snapshot of a conversation he saw. A woman was requesting the help of a man in a Facebook group to help her change the brakes and rotors on her car because. . . . . . wait for it . . . the husband didn't want to do it! He wanted to "supervise." Here we go.
My observation on that is 10 years of her doing that, requesting other men to do her husbands jobs, will lead to relationship strife. She is having to take initiative and make up for his lack of proactivity to sort the car. Then she has to pay someone to come over and fix the car. Before long she'll pop the top and scream "I want a divorce!" He'll be scratching his head wondering, what did I do wrong? Ten years of those small little things become big things and it's over.
Now you might be thinking, Jordan, calm down don't get ahead of yourself. To which I will respond you aren't reacting enough. I'm not perfect but if my future wife has to go on a Facebook forum to request work because "I don't want to, but I'll supervise" it will be time for me to sort my life out. You can't supervise some random bloke doing your job at your home. It doesn't work that way. Another genius solution is to take it to the local repair shop and get it sorted. Job done. Hazard avoided. What is it again; happy wife, happy life? Or is it empowered husband, happy wife, happy life? One of those two.
Be assertive. Sort the car. Have a nice day.
