The Catch-22 in Relationships

(WTNH) — It’s a new bride’s worst nightmare- her groom becomes a terrible husband after being a fantastic boyfriend. Although this can certainly happen the other way around, relationship expert T. Charles Brantley discusses the explanation for this scenario.

Brantley lists the top 5 reasons men are sometimes better boyfriends than husbands:

  1. He has had much more practice in being a boyfriend than a husband.
  2. He seen more failed relationships than successful marriages.
  3. Sometimes men don’t even know how to make transition to husband – they never had a husband or father figure in their life.
  4. When a woman’s relationship level goes up as a wife, his level might have a hard time budging.
  5. He has been trained, unconsciously, to walk away or give up when things get hard.
