All humor aside, I believe this is absolutely correct for most men.
I agree. If she admires him, then all the other stuff will follow. If your women has contempt for you, it's a sign that it's time to move on.
“One proof is that the most devastating thing a woman can do to her man is to hold him in contempt. That is so devastating to a marriage that, over time, it is often more toxic than an affair. I am fairly certain that more marriages survive an affair, as difficult as that is, than contempt. Of course, this goes in both directions, but when a woman shows contempt toward her man, his very manhood is called into question. “
I don’t know if being held in contempt calls their manhood into question, but being held in contempt by your woman without question will end your marriage. Not feeling appreciated for all you do, will eventually lead you to stop bothering to do them.. which will cause even more contempt and even less being done.. until finally there is nothing left.
