LIVING WITH WOMEN
 

LEAVING HOME


ADVICE


While men are typically excited about leaving home and taking trips, women may feel extra distress at such times. An attentive husband may wisely expect predictable wifely stress and tension, commonly projected externally, especially on himself, whenever couples are leaving together. Such typically unconscious stress may also be expressed in: delaying leaving, dilly dallying, last minute house cleaning (making bed, washing dishes, etc.), double checking packing, plus control of exodus time.

Better to anticipate female stress whenever connections with a secure home are threatened by leaving, and to accept with understanding, than to escalate tension by "trying to rush" her.
