If you don’t want to be in one of the most annoying relationship dynamics of all time, never utter these phrases to your husband.
“You need a haircut”.
It’s great that you want your husband to look his best, but avoid giving him unsolicited advice on things that he’s capable of deciding for himself. What if he likes his locks a little long, or was planning to schedule an appointment right before you said something? Now you’re just annoying. “If you treat your husband as if he can’t think for himself, he will stop thinking for himself, and ultimately will become so coddled that he’ll stop thinking much of you,” says relationship expert Todd Valentine. At some point, he learned how to shave and book salon appointments on his own, meaning he has all the tools he needs to act like a grown-up. So unless he’s seriously verging on Wolverine hairy (no one but Hugh Jackman can pull off that look), allow him to be a man and figure out grooming all on his own. That also goes for getting his suits dry-cleaned and going shopping for new shirts when his old ones get holes.
