What a ridiculous answer.  It is as much a husband's job to keep the wife happy as it is the duty of the wife to please the man!  What a sexist, outdated response!  Women are people too.

R.M. French - what a pathetic answer!

 You are obviously a man pretending to be a woman or a woman with NO SELF-RESPECT!

wow!!! Whoever you are that wrote this answer has either been brainwashed by a controlling man, or is a man pretending to be a woman.  "...making sure that there is a good, hot meal on the table every night (preferably something that is his favorite dish), followed by a good, enthusiastic bout of love-making before bedtime.  I promise you that if you make his home an environment of joy, happyness and pleasure he will not have the desire to go out to bars." HAHAHAHA What about the women that do this and still get treated like ****. You are a ******* doormat, get some **** self esteem! And as for the woman asking the question, you need to realize you are better than this crap. You need to stop worrying hes gonna find another woman and wait till he walks in the door from work.Get all dressed up and run out the door to go out and leave him with the kids. Let him know how inconsiderate he is. You need to scare him.

I think the previous answer was ridiculous and sexist. Is there a  book called the "Proper care and feeding of Wives" Seriously what is this the freaking 1940's?!  If  he is at bars all the time with single guy friends he wants to be single. I don't care if they are begging him to be their wingman. It is inappropriate. Start going out with the girls  when he goes out with the guys. See how it makes him feel. Stay out all night, crash at a friends let him worry where you and how it feels.

THis isn't the 1940's    Give him an ultimatum or  show him the door! Ok or maybe a little less harsh if you do love him  tell him  how it makes you feel.  Use "I" statements, instead of saying " you  do this..." Say " when you go out and I am left at home it makes me feel xyz."

 IF he loves and respects you  he will listen. You are worth it, you deserve to be treated with respect and love and nothing less.
