I never want to (never will) be that wife that looks at her husband just like a business partner…and not her best friend.

I never want to be the wife that has tantrums in public and yells at other people while the husband stands there quietly mouthing “im sorry” to everyone. I have seen this!

I never want to be the kind of wife my SIL is, or Mother-In-Law was. Husbands are/were under their control. Brother-In-Law can’t do anything by himself; in fact, the whole family has to do things together, or they don’t do them at all. (I think the non-delicate adjective is “whipped?”)

I never want to be the kind of wife who “mothers” her husband and does everything for him and treats him like a baby.  I don’t want to the wife who is the “man” of the house and takes care of fixing/doing everything while he passively sits by and only “helps out” when she orders him to.

I definitely don’t want to be the kind of wife who b*tches and complains about her husband to all her friends and family, and takes the whole “look at poor me” martyr attitude trying to garner sympathy for her situation.  Moreover, I most definitely do not want to be the type of wife who depends on her husband for her happiness, especially in expecting him to cater to her every emotional issue/needs and gets upset when things aren’t “perfect” the way she wanted it.  (Yuck!)

I never want to be the wife (or girlfriend at this point) that makes her husband feel inadequate. He is my equal, my best friend, my life partner, and he should be treated with respect and love (exactly how I would want to be treated).

leisha606:  Haha, usually I’m the one apologizing for my husband! He doesn’t throw tantrums really, just isn’t particularly friendly or patient!

I never want to be the wife that resents my husband for working long hours to provide for our family (I will be a stay at home mom).

I never want to be the wife who lets herself go.. Physically, intellectually, socially..

I never want to be the wife that my husband has to get away from and bitches to all of his friends about because I’m so unbearable…. Which seems to be a lot of peoples wives, I’m suprised by the amount of men who act like their marriages are prisons.

This is such a good thinking thread!

I never want to be the kind of wife that forces my husband to change who he is to fit my whims.

I also seconded a bunch of the ones above.
