A toxic marriage is not something that comes to you out of the blue.
It is a process where negative words and habits accumulate, and a lack of open and honest communication becomes part of your life.
You cannot simply just blame your spouse for your unhealthy marriage, it takes two to tango, so your toxic wife cannot be seen as the only cause of your suffering.
Your marriage became a nightmare the moment you stopped making an effort.
That being said, if you’re wondering what types of toxic wives can make any man regret tying the knot, here’s what you can expect:
1. The crazy wife that makes you regret opening your eyes in the morning
This type of wife can drive any man (or woman) insane.
She’s incredibly good at making you feel like everything bad that ever happened to her is on your head. For example, she would say things like, “You stole my life and my dreams. I should have never married you.”
Dealing with such a person requires extreme patience and a willingness to admit that you’re wrong even when you’re not, and having your way with words so she won’t enter her critical rage mode.
2. A nagging wife that makes you regret forgetting to pick up something she wanted from the store
That’s the kind of wife who never appreciates anything you do, but always points out and gets upset about even the slightest hiccups on your part.
She can make you feel like you’re totally incompetent and incapable of living without her ordering you around.
Her superpower is keeping you in a state of fear so you never forget to finish the tasks she gave you.
3. The selfish wife that wants you to stay at home all the time because she demands constant attention
Nothing you ever do satisfies her. She wants it all and she wants right at this moment, and your mission is to come up with ways to keep her satisfied.
Should you not, you’ll be a worthless imbecile and every single one of her friends will know that you are one.
If you happen to disappoint a selfish wife, she will threaten to pack her things and leave you.
And even though this sounds like the best thing that could possibly happen to you, you cannot pretend that you’re finally relieved. Instead, you beg her to stay because you’re afraid of being alone.
4. The disrespectful wife that makes you feel like you are the only one to blame for your marriage going downhill
Her favorite pastime activity is making you feel uncomfortable in front of others, and her special set of skills includes avoiding listening to you or talking to you.
The disrespectful wife will flirt with other men while you’re watching, only to later excuse herself by saying that you never pay attention to her anyway.
And even though your life may have been an overall success, she still manages to make you feel small and unworthy. She loves contradicting you even when she knows she’s the one that needs to take a good look in the mirror.
Should you be experiencing one or more of these behaviors in your marriage, maybe it’s time for a serious talk with your spouse… unless you’re into this sort of thing of course.
