Google’s autocomplete feature on their search bar makes me laugh sometimes. I’m a sucker for “how-to” articles and blog posts, such as “how to make Parmesan chicken” or “how to style my hair for a wedding” or “how to grow marijuana.” (Kidding, I know how to make Parmesan chicken.)
Today, out of curiosity I wanted to know what Google considers popular or helpful searches that start with “how to get my husband to…” Lo and behold, the options that came up were:
Immediately I thought, “Women are really searching for advice on how to get their husbands to perform oral sex on them?” Turns out, yes. This search generated about 213,000,000 results with articles and discussions entitled, “Husband won’t go down on me… what do I do?” and “Is it normal that my husband won’t go down on me ever?”
My curiosity led me to conduct a similar search for “how to get my wife to…” I figured husbands must be asking the same question. I mean, what guy wouldn’t ask, right?
Turns out, no. Instead, what I found was:
(Side note: the fact that 2 of the 4 suggestions were about getting your wife to love you again is just plain sad. It makes me wonder: Are today’s marriages really that tarnished?)
Most of the search suggestions were similar. However, rather than asking the same question about “going down,” it appears that husbands are more interested in learning how to get their wives to stop spending money!
So it comes down to sex and money – which so happen to be the 2 main answers to the question “why do couples fight?” Experts say that sex and money are the top reasons for infidelity and divorce.
I’m a strong believer that you and your significant other must be on the same page regarding those 2 issues in order to last. By no means am I a relationship expert. I’m stumbling through this much like others are. But what I have learned is if you and your spouse agree on how to spend and save money, and you have regular (and I mean regular) sex with each other, the house is a happy home.
Just something to think about.
