'My second wife is just like the first one'
Dear Diana, I'm 34 and recently married for the second time. My first marriage was a disaster as my wife and I could not get along.
She fought for everything. I just could not take it after a while. After my second attempt at marital bliss, I think all women are the same. I can’t understand their psychology. Even today, I can’t fathom my second wife either. I have been married for three months but she is turning to be one nagging woman. It is going to take a lot to save this marriage.
Every marriage has its ups and downs. Talk to your wife. You have been married for only three months, so give it some more time. You seem to have a clear opinion about women. But remember each woman is different. Maybe you don’t understand her. When your wife begins nagging, do not yell back. It will not help but worsen the situation even further. A nagging wife is someone who has gotten quite comfortable at dishing out the orders, so you should know how to handle it. Humour your wife and try cracking a joke when she is about to go on a nagging trip. If she is a hard nut to crack, you will need lots of patience. But at least make an effort.
Diana will solve it!
