Probably took the Mrs. about a year and a half.
Good luck!

Must not be too bad, I don't remember that it was a problem, in fact, I don't remember it period.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

My bride started about age 47 or 48. The hot flashes were the worst for her. She did not have the " episodes of crazy" like her mother did .
I was worried because she is very similar to her mother, although I can usually avoid fights if I DON'T mention that, however all I need to do is call her by her mother's name and it's on. I felt really bad for my Father in law, back then.
My wife still has the occasional hot flash, 6 years later , but other than that , she has not had many other issues
.As for her mother, she has been using menopause as an excuse , for her behavior ,for 20 plus years. Not sure I buy it, come to find out ,she is just turning into a grumpy old lady.

You could have an optimistic outlook to this. Living with a woman going through mental pause is like living with Cybil and all those different personalities. Now you'll be sleeping with a different woman every night.

When she gets grumpier let her know you asked on Trapperman for advice and then see how she reacts and get back to us. It should be entertaining for us.

Mine says she's been having issues for awhile now like 5 years, but I'm waiting for it to end. She's hot then she's cold etc. It seems like any other time.

Womper, calling her by her moms name. Lol lol lol… When my wife gets nasty I call her “Harriet” after Harriet Oleson on The Little House on the Prairie series. It always turns out well! Or if I’m just wanting to aggravate her I’ll walk through the kitchen when she’s cooking and say “that’s not how my mother cooked that” Lol

After reading all the comments I’m thinking we should all get together and write a book for the younger guys. Good solid advice is hard to come by these days.

My wife and I were in CO. Seen some deer. One was a pretty good buck. She started saying elk elk. I told her they are not elk. She began swearing at me and pointing at the deer. "Right there right there . She never talks to me like that. I started laughing. Couldn't help it. Said those are deer. So she started crying.

Hang in there. Its not all crazy woman days.

Be prepared for:

It's too hot.
It's too cold.
You don't love me.
Quit smothering me.
Crying..... Lots and lots of crying.
I'm fat. Don't mention the cream cheese coated bagel she's eating when she says she's fat.
You'll always be wrong. Anything you say can upset her. I've called her mommy girl since we had our son. She used to think it was cute. Not so much anymore.
There is nothing you can do to make it any better. Just give her love when she wants it, and stay away when she doesn't.

My wife started with perimenopause at age 35.
Then had surgery at age 45.
She's now 53 and still going strong with the hot/cold flashes.
She is 1 that will have all the windows open and the AC going in -20 weather and be hot. Then have all the windows shut and wanting the heater on in +90 weather.

The end date is pretty much up in the air. One day she'll wake up and be semi-normal again.

My mom's wasn't real noticeable.
My MIL's was really bad.
My wife's isn't to bad, other than the hot/cold flashes, and the occasional "you don't love me."
A friend of mine wife went off the deep end, and ended up causing their divorce. Six years later she wanted to reconcile. Her brother told him to stay away, she was still nuts.

Install a new thermostat because yours will get worn out They burn up and freeze in the same hour Sleep in separate bedrooms until it’s over BOTH of you will be happier !

Turn in your man card You won’t need it for 2-3 years PLUS the fact you ask this bunch about this means you don’t deserve it

This is pretty close to what We are going thru. She gets depressed and offended real easy, loses her train of thought but yet she knows everything and wants to control everything! Doesn’t want me close, doesn’t want me to have a opinion, doesn’t want intimacy. When I was young people talked about older woman being good lovers…. PFT!

Those are the divorced ones that have "recovered" after gaining their sanity back.

God Bless ya
It’s a rough time for everyone. Lengths and severity differ from person to person. My wife started when she was 47-48 year old and lasted 7 full years. It was brutal. I actually had to recommit to the marriage. Get used to severe mood swings, slamming doors, crying and the constant urge for them to fight. She’s 60 now and still has hot flashes. I haven’t touched the thermostat in almost 20 years.
Best of luck to ya

It’s funny you mention that. Every crazy woman I know has chickens. Is it like having a therapy dog?
