Dating an emasculated man

I believe there is a hidden reason some of these fights happen that is rarely discussed.

In the rush of getting married, many of us forget to reflect on our internalized messages about marriage.

These messages are unseen ‘ghosts’ who say, “I do” along with you. They include family, cultural, and personal experiences that subconsciously tell us what marriage “is” or “isn’t” and what it “can” or “can’t be.” As a therapist, I know these ghosts can cause significant rifts between couples.

It should be no surprise that the idea has gotten so popular that the strong woman/emasculated male trope is now trotted out constantly as an excuse for bad behavior on the part of men.

Males and male-apologists alike blame everything from rape, to cheating, to sexual harassment, to cat-calling, to eaves-teasing, to depression, to murder on a woman being “emasculating” thus forcing the man to react in this way. A little background history on me, my parents divorced when I was very young and my father got custody of me.

all of these are used in reference to a strong woman.

Alex, I am in the midst of a separation initiated by my husband. He says the main reason we cannot live together is because of what he calls my “emasculating behaviors”.

He claims I may not even be aware of when I am doing “it”, but when I ask him to specifically explain what these behaviors are, he can’t.

But what tends to actually happen is women feel so empowered by their own awesomeness that they place their guy in the role of "pet" instead of "protector." That might make you feel like you can run the world, but it certainly won't keep manly men around for long.

This list isn't about how to blow smoke up a man's ass to get what you want; it's about really understand how we may be making it hard for a good man to shine in our presence.

There are a broad range of reasons that justify fighting after a wedding.
