4 Happy Husband Hacks When Life Kicks You In The Teeth

Are you a happy husband or are you “Bob” the miserable bastard? If you’re like me, you’re probably both. I typically find myself at both ends of the spectrum -- but at least I’m being honest. You’ve heard the saying before, “Happy wife, happy life” right? I think that’s a two way street … an […]

Do You Deserve A Little Respect? thumbnail

Do You Deserve A Little Respect?

It’s often said in the relationship circles that women “need” love and men “need” respect; whatever the hell that means. I’m not sure how that assumption came about or what statistics substantiate that claim, but I do know this, respect for most men is something that is demanded. If we don’t get it, we get […]

“Damn You St. Valentine … All Three Of You!”

Did you know that approximately 150 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged annually -- making Valentine’s Day the second most popular card-sending holiday after Christmas? It’s pretty crazy when you think of it. Actually one year, I didn’t think of it and I forgot to get my wife a card, let alone the seasonal, obligatory […]

Equality In Marriage: The True Pissing Contest For The Modern Husband

Note: This post is longer than usual, only because there’s much to be said on this topic. I don’t believe in marriage equality. At least not according to the convoluted meanings and contexts that populist thinkers and organizations try to push. What does it mean to be equal any way -- that everything is split […]

3 “Piss Poor” Ways To Apologize To Her

If you’ve been married for any length of time, then you know that apologies come with the territory. “Honey, I’m sorry for not taking out the trash the other day. I’ll take care of it now.” “I’m sorry that I didn’t tell you Joe was coming over to watch the game today.” “I was gonna […]

Scientifically Proven Research For Your Next Beer Run

For most men, drinking beer is fun and enjoyable (myself included). For others it’s a serious addiction. And for some other men, sharing a well-poured pint isn’t congruent with their core values and is to be avoided at all costs. Note: If you struggle (or have struggled) with alcoholism, please disregard this article altogether. I’m […]

A Bloody Joust Between Your Genitalia and Genius

The late legendary comedian, Robin Williams, said it best … “God has given men both a penis and a brain, but only enough blood for one to run at a time.” In other words, when one is working, the other isn’t. Science tells us that the brain dictates to the heart where and how much […]

There is a great book written by Jeff Olson called The Slight Edge. I try to read it at least once a month. If you haven’t already read it, I urge you go to pick up a copy. Jeff talks about how our future successes and failures are quite simply determined by the tiniest, seemingly […]

Eroticitis of the Brain: Hard To Detect, Even Harder To Escape, Part 2

In the last issue of Husbands of Kaizen, we talked about how much contemporary culture has sexualized pretty much everything and where the man stands in societies’ Sexhibitionist Initiative.

Eroticitis Of The Brain: Hard To Detect, Even Harder To Escape, Part 1

Sex sells … It always has and it always will. And guess what? We all buy it (men and women, single and married). We are all obsessed and compelled by it, ushering it into our being, through the subconscious. To think you’re an exception is like living in Los Angeles and claiming that your body […]

How Jiu Jitsu Made Me A More Affectionate Husband

Toward the end of 2012, I made a decision to do something that I’ve always aspired to do … train in the ground fighting art of jiu-jitsu. Back in the early 90’s, Royce Gracie, one of the living legends of the Brazilian Martial Art, consistently defeated men of a much greater physical stature. (Just type […]

Why It Pays To Be A Pissed Off Husband (Embrace Your Anger)

Robots and machines have the luxury of not having to deal with the emotion of anger. Humans, both men and woman, are without that luxury. Which is why learning to embrace your anger, as a husband, will benefit you, as you learn to make it a habit. Of course, this is an independent journey that […]

Is Your Wife Your Best Friend Or Mere Acquaintance?

Most people that you know are just acquaintances in your life. If we were to take Pareto’s Law into account, you might even say (and this is a very generous assumption) that only 20% of those in our lives account for 80% of the richness, growth, and support we ever experience. These people that impact […]

Independence and Interdependence: Having Best Of Both Worlds In Your Marriage

A healthy body can only function properly when each independent part of the body works as it was designed to work. Each organ has its unique job to do. If it can’t or simply won’t, then the entire body is at risk of underperformance, sickness, and possible death. As the law of cause and effect […]

7 “Tells” Of The Most Powerful Roadblock In Your Married Life

In his book To Be A Man, Robert Augustus Masters, PHD, spends a lot of time explaining how shame is the most powerful emotional roadblock for men. Masters also believes that shame is the most hidden, neglected, and overlooked emotion in men bar none. And in my personal experience (mostly through the inner dialogue I […]

Couples Counseling Minus The Counselor: 5 Reasons To Consider DIY Therapy

When things go south in a marriage, usually one of the spouses in the relationship will bring up the idea of couples counseling (typically the wife).

Setting boundaries in marriage can be somewhat of a dicey concept.
