3 Things You Should Never Ever Call Your Husband (If You Want to Avoid The Drama)

My Husband Gibran Watkins

Not the look you wanna see!

Life’s full of lessons and I’m always learning (sometimes the hard way) and taking notes — especially when it comes to my marriage. We’re only about 3 months in so I expect to fall and get a few scrapes every now and then. And when I do, three things matter most to me: 1. I must clean the wound (communication people!) and put on a band-aid so it can heal. 2. I must reflect on what I tripped on, and how to avoid not doing it again. And 3. I must spread the word to as many wives as possible so that they can watch their steps! So listen up ladies. Here’s a little list of things I’ve learned that you should NEVER EVER EVER call your husband, unless you’re ready to take off those gloves!

  • 1. “A Diva” — Sure The Man can sometimes take longer in the bathroom to get ready than I do, but that doesn’t mean that uttering these two words in a fit of oh-my-God-we’re-so-late-come-on-already rage is acceptable, or cute. If you’re looking to get his attention, this will do it. But if you’re hoping to have a good time when you head out – forget it! Mood killer all the way.
  • 2. ”Short” — Now I screwed this one up years ago, but the aftermath was so bad that to this day I’m constantly focused on never repeating the word and Gibran in the same sentence again. My husband put it best when he said, “A woman calling her man short is like him calling her fat – would you ever forgive me for calling you fat?” Point taken. (Note: I tried to clean it up by saying, “But you’re taller than me!” Big mistake – huge, mistake! #prettywomanisaclassic)
  • 3. ”Chatty” — Now I still don’t fully comprehend why this one makes the list, but I do know that it has something to do with men not ever wanting to be looked at as “gossips”. Apparently this is a description reserved only for us woman and the two are listed as synonyms in any man’s thesaurus.

Okay, that’s it for today’s lesson girls. Hope you took notes! Oh, and in the spirit of the whole always learning thing I keep preaching about: If you have anything to add to this list, please do! I’m starting to get the feeling that I may need to keep a guide and re-post them all occasionally. (Guys, you can speak on it too. Addendums to the list are more than welcome.)

    Real men don't wear skinny Jeans, smell better,and take more time to get dressed than his partner. As to his height, accepting who you are, fat,tall, short,bald , skinny, is the first step in emotional maturity. If your man is emotionally immature you have a bigger problem than not hurting his feelings. The same is true if you know you are "fat".

      Leave it up to my Daddy to drop by and keep it real. Well there you have folks. Straight from the mouth of a man who has been married for over 40 years. He says: Men should mature and get over it. Men, what do you say?

  4. Hehe. Cute!

    And I loved this part:

    "And when I do, three things matter most to me: 1. I must clean the wound (communication people!) and put on a band-aid so it can heal. 2. I must reflect on what I tripped on, and how to avoid not doing it again."

    Great insight.
