Take a vacation, say a week a way from her, like a hotel/motel, and if she notices that she feels horrible even when you're not there, yeah, maybe she'll get the hint.

If you can't do this, just leave the house for a few hours every time she gets into one of her tiffs.

Rhonda: My advice to pray and love was based on the idea that IF the wife is unwilling to seek help right now, prayer could change that and she might become willing, because of prayer. I speak from experience, where I needed help with something, and was unwilling to get it, and prayer brought about the needed desire for help in me.

As for my misunderstanding of your original post, I apologize that I misconstrued your meaning. Yes, I know plenty of women who transition easily, I also know plenty of women who have suffered, fit, and unfit. Eating healthy does help women with any and all hormonal issues, from PMS, to menopause. It may not eliminate the symptoms, but it does make it easier to bear.

Rhonda: Your statement that thin, fit women get through menopause easily is not accurate.

TRISH sweety hold on honey READ my entire post before you slam down on ONE POINT that you didn't even GET CORRECTLY

and BTW I did not write THIN YOU IMPLIED IT

AND YES

women who are FIT and healthy EAT RIGHT not junk food coffee soda candy and crap HAVE a very EASY transition - generally

I KNOW many women who "FIT" this description who have no issues

"praying" and "loving" someone offers up poor advice for a man whose wife REFUSES to seek help

Rhonda: Your statement that thin, fit women get through menopause easily is not accurate. There are plenty of women I know who are in shape and miserable during menopause. Heavier women will suffer more during hot flashes due to the excess fat. The emotional rollercoaster occurs in a lot of thinner women I know.


Jim: Your wife is probably experiencing a lot of emotional turmoil, some due to hormones, and some due to the stage of life she is in now. Prayer, love and support are the things she needs from you.

Pray for her without ceasing Jim. Turn the AC down to the polar bear comfort range & stay out of her way if you know what's good for you!!! Been there, done that & miraculously lived to tell the story! :)

Funny and SO TRUE Leon! Its 83 degrees outside here today, the A/C is cranked up! I'm in a blouse and shorts, my hubby is in sweat pants and a long sleeved shirt!
I had a total hysterectomy when I was 36 and was thrown into early menopause.
I have been on hormone therapy since then which helps tremendously. However that is not a safe route for all, particularly if there is a history of breast cancer in the family (None in mine).

get busy with activities away from her and outside the house ...if she is unwilling to confront menopause

many women experiencing menopause are in denial understanding their child bearing years have come to an end ...add this to not caring for their bodies over the years and it has created a "condition" rather than a ceasing of their cycle

keep in mind if she is overweight, does not exercise, and eats poorly this will magnify all of her symptoms including irritability

generally speaking menopause for healthy fit women who take care of their bodies is a very easy transition

--Jim:

Brother, This is another chance for you to exercise patience & grow closer with your wife. Endeavor to comprehend that menopause is a natural process for a women, and since you're to love her as your own body, this natural change is to be accepted by you as if it was actually in you own body : for your both are of one flesh!!

Grace Unto You Both & Peace, Be Multiplied

The Holy Spirit can make her honest to tell the truth. And Jesus Christ can give you love which "bears all things" (see 1 Corinthians 13:7) "and you will find rest for your souls." (in Matthew 11:29). You can trust God to make you stronger, and pray for her to get more in the Holy Spirit so she is not just in denial about however she is being wrong in how she relates with you > "submitting to one another in the fear of God." (Ephesians 5:21) I mean > I believe a truly just-physical medical problem can not make us stop from obeying how the Holy Spirit has us living and relating in God's peace. "Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you." (James 4:7)

The menopause happens!
No doctor can stop it.
