My wife was like this (x100). My friends wives, people I've met, stories I've heard, even youtuber relationships! lol. All I ever hear is exactly what this woman is saying in this article. The only person I know who is NOT like this is my mother. So I know it's not ALL women, but damn, it's really disheartening to think that it's actually a very large majority of women. I really hope it isn't.
Also, does anyone think that if your wife is like this, that she would actually take notice of it? Or would she do like every human being, male or female, does in any relationship? Refuse to admit any wrongdoing whatsoever?

Hahah... fuck no.
Tbh, it's BOTH of their fault. It's her fault for being a petty bitch... but, it's ALSO HIS fault, for not setting her straight.
From what I've seen with my friends -- When a woman gets like this, it's because she WANTS her man to PUT HIS DAMN FOOT DOWN. At the very least subconsciously... and sometimes even explicitly. She wants her man to act more like the MAN of the house.
Basically, it's a test.
He should shut that shit down with one glaring look -- the same way you'd look at an 8-year-old who's having a temper tantrum in the middle of a funeral, or something -- and then... uh... *take care* of it, later, in the bedroom. #fuckyeah
The time for "discussion" would be AFTER the hate-fucking. There tends to be a surprising degree of intimacy and openness between a couple when they're lying draped around each other's exhausted sweaty bodies. <3 <3
This needs to happen reasonably early in the relationship, though. As they say, shit doesn't flow back uphill... If he fails enough of these tests, he'll *irreversibly* lose her respect.
I mean... I can even *feel* the same things happening inside ME when I act more bitchy than usual with MY man.
The difference is that he actually *enjoys* a certain amount of conflict -- as a form of foreplay, pretty much -- and he ALWAYS knows how to put the lid on it when I'm honestly acting out of line, to the great benefit of us BOTH.
Last but not least, BOTH of us have the following policy, toward life in general: "If you're gna dictate how you want something done... okay, YOU do it."
This is how you live life, kids.
The husband in the article should have just folded his arms, looked at her like she's a petulant little teenage girl, and told her she can buy her *own* damn groceries from now on, if she's going to be so painfully specific about it.0

That sounds about right, my ex would do the same thing with me, but god forbid I ever said anything about something that she did wrong. I'm never letting that happen again with my future relationships. No more putting up with stupid bs like that. I think there's only been one time that she realized she was being super bitchy for no reason at all and she apologized for it. It's so frustrating to deal with, giving the other person all the slack yet not being given any in return.1
