Husbands think women complain too much. As my colleague said "Women complain as soon they open heir mouth, even when they yawn in the morning. "

Some would probably finds this statement amusing but I truly believe husbands often misunderstand their wives. This is not necessarily only true for interracial couples, but for couples in general.

My husband would say I complain all the time but honestly I am not complaining just describing my day.

Women and men deal with daily issues in completely different ways.
Women often like to speak about the hardships or the joys that happen to them. It can sound like complaining, but in reality they are just relating their experiences so as to process their feelings. I would simply call it "sharing".

My message to all men!: We don't want you to solve our problems, just be available to listen.

All we, women are looking for is sympathy. Say things like - “seems like you had a difficult day”, etc. Maybe, just say 'ohh..' or, 'hmm..' every now and then. You don't really have to say a lot. Just learn to listen. It's a sign of trust that you get to listen to your wife's feelings.
The bottom line is that validating your wife's feelings can turn off "complaining" quickly.

So the lesson is simple dear husbands out there:

Listen sympathetically and empathize.
And remember to resist the urge to attempt to solve her problems.
