My husband has a tendency to blame me for just about anything. Has his coat mysteriously disappeared? Then I must have hung it somewhere. Can’t find his glass? I must have put it in the diswasher. Whatever is going wrong or getting lost, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes my fault.
Adam set the tone
I always console myself with the thought that centuries ago the first man on earth, Adam, set the tone when he blamed Eve for hís transgression. But what I didn’t know was that Adam managed to blame God too, in one swell swoop! Look at what he replied, when God asked him if he had eaten from the forbidden fruit.
Adam: ‘The woman you put here with me —she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.’
Even Dr. Phil, who always preaches you ‘gotta own the problem’ would have had trouble with Adam!
Does your husband suffer from the male tendency of wife blaming too?
