Over at Dalrock’s there is a post
It asks the question of how much of the problems that a man might be having in his life (e.g. at work, with his buddies) can be shared with the wife.
Much of the discussion there is about how a man has to calibrate how he handles this issue such that he finds the Goldilocks solution. This is difficult for him to find, and probably a moving target at that. He is supposed to be the stoic rock, but he is also supposed to share his feelings (which reveals weakness). And if he does not share information, and she eventually finds out, then the trust issue is brought to the fore. This is pretty much a no-win situation, which seems to be par for the course with respect to relations with modern women.
And of course, there is the Sword of Damocles hanging over the head of the typical modern man. If he does not gauge how to handle the above situation, he might be on the path to contempt (from her perspective) and then to divorce. Full disclosure — this scenario played a factor in my divorce.
This situation is ludicrous. With respect to my parents, this never would have happened. My Dad was somewhat stoic, but he did discuss issues with my Mom. He could do this because my Mom was committed no matter what. There was no sword hanging over his head.
