It’s about more than the Dishes?

I guess it’s always about more than the dishes. I thought it was a very strange thing to read. Woman leaves husband because there are dishes in the sink. There has got to be more to this story. I can understand that women want men to take initiative but you have to give us idiots a fighting chance. The funny thing about a man sometimes, if it doesn’t bother us we pay less attention. I could probably eat off the same plate for a week. So, I think sometimes, it is good for our wife to tell us they need something done. I’m curious why the wife just wouldn’t at least tell her husband once that every day he gets home he needs to do the dishes. Then if he ignores you I get it. I promise you ladies, your man will take initiative when it is something they truly want. I know it would be cool if couples were so close they could read each other’s thoughts, finish each other’s sentences, yada, yada. On many levels men are just not that in tune. We are as much leader as we are follower. Sometimes we have to be told sometimes we don’t. But, I know this whole dishes thing was really something more indicative of a larger problem that seemed to be left untreated. It is difficult a lot of times to speak up. Should I say something, should I let it go? Am I just going to rock the apple cart here? My experience has been these little issues arise because of unmet needs in another area of our lives. So, the moral of the story is to forget about the dishes and figure out what it is you are really missing and talk about that.
