So, your mother used to tell you that little girls were made of sugar and spice and all things nice; well boys, we’re sorry to say that your mother was wrong. Even if you think your wife is the purest of women, everyone keeps secrets and your wife isn’t exempt. To find out what your wife will never tell you, check out the list below.
1. Money matters
OK, we didn’t miss the memo and yes we do know that it’s the twenty first century, but according to studies women do like men who have money. One study found that 64 per cent of women would still prefer their men to earn more than them. A study from the British Journal of Psychology confirms that women are attracted to men who drive expensive cars. If you’re thinking that your wife doesn’t want you to have money and that she’s happy earning all the cash whilst you sit on the couch, think again; she’ll never tell you that she wants you to be rich because it’s bad taste, so you’ll never know the truth.
2. She was flirting
Flirting is something we all do, but your wife seems to flirt with everyone and anything. So, what should you do? Confront her and kick up a fuss? Chances are she’ll just say she was being friendly. Although seeing your woman flirt with other men is wounding, scientists say that women flirt to get what they want in life and you could benefit from their fluttering eyelashes as well. Researchers from the University of California and the London School of Economics conducted studies into female charm and found that flirting makes men feel good so that women can get what they want. The study suggests women who flirt get around 20 per cent off the original price of the car they were buying.
3. Her last night of freedom
The hen night, bachelorette party, or last night of freedom –whatever you wish to call it, it’s an occasion notorious for brides-to-be to totally let their hair down and get up to all manner of mischief. Whether strippers were involved, a frisky game of poker or streaking through the bar, you as her husband will never know the extent of pre-wedding mayhem that was partaken. What can be even more frustrating is the sly quips and sideways glances between your wife and her pals – what happened that night!?
4. Sex is important
Do you constantly feel like you have to beg for sex? Do you find yourself doing chores just to get your wife into bed? You are not alone, my friend. Researchers found that men who did chores around the house got 50 per cent more sex than those who didn’t. Could it be because women have less desire to have sex than guys, so they are using sex as a reward for chores? Maybe, but gentlemen, a study undertaken by Kinsey Institution found that women felt being sexually satisfied was a priority when it came to being happy in a marriage. So, putting these two studies together means that women do care about sex and that maybe they’re just telling us they don’t need it so that we do the dishes; just putting it out there.
5. That she doesn’t orgasm
It’s been drummed into women that telling her man if she doesn’t orgasm that it will shatter them and knock their confidence. Yet 16 per cent of women are thought to never achieve orgasms, whilst 26 per cent of women reported faking an orgasm during sex in a study of 50,000 women from the US, Australia and the UK. Yet, in the midst of wild, hot sex how can you tell that she’s faking it? Well, like men, when women orgasm they are pretty uninhibited and just go with it. If you look at your girl and she seems pretty controlled then she might be faking. If you think she might be faking, ask her what she’d like you to do to her in bed and ask her for a little guidance.
