7 Different Kinds of Husbands

“Marriage is a relationship in which one person is always right and the other is the husband!”

Our husbands are often the target of a lot of jokes but they are useful to have around. Here are a few varieties that can be seen in the market.

  1. I, Me & myself – He is the quintessential narcissist husband who is selfish to the core. He just knows his needs and focuses on himself, oblivious to his wife and children. This variety is caught in a time warp and should ideally go back to medieval times.
  2. Mama’s boy – While every mother dreams of such a son, every wife dreads him. This one has not cut the cord from his mom and believes in discussing every little thing with her. Obviously his wife is always annoyed with him for sharing everything from the day’s menu to her last period!
  3. Hands on “dad” – This husband is every wife’s dream especially when she becomes a mother. Before they become parents he might as well be treating her as a child and soon after become an involved dad doing everything from changing diapers to feeding to putting the child to sleep.
  4. As you say – He perhaps agrees with everything his wife says so people clearly know who wears the pants in that house. He is probably devoid of any personality of his own and living in the shadows of his wife.
  5. Eternal Romantic – For this husband the honeymoon period never gets over. Wife comes first even after they have children. He makes it a point to pamper her, take her on date nights, share the work load etc.
  6. Wearing the apron guy – The traditional gender roles seem blurry if your husband is this type. He can cook, do laundry, and clean up the mess just as well as you or even better. He is equally capable of managing the household, setting the perfect example before your kids.
  7. Mr. Responsible – Give him a task and consider it done. He is the most dependable and dutiful person in the family often stepping in whenever required. Mr. Responsible is independent and does not require anyone to take care of him. He packs his own bag for trips and can manage alone at home.
You may wonder why I have not listed a Perfect husband. That’s simply because a perfect husband is truly a myth.

I strongly feel that people are imperfect; with their flaws but relationships can still be perfect- something to strive for.

I know some husbands may fall in multiple categories. So mine is a blend of Romantic, Mr. Responsible and Hands on dad.

Which category or categories does your husband fall in? Share in comments below and let me know!

We are not here to judge but no matter what, we women always make our husbands look good. Feel free to share this piece with your friends, family and of course husbands.

I am taking my blog to the next level with Blogchatter’s #MyFriendAlexa. This is my #Post1 /#Week1 for the campaign.

  1. Your posts are always the breeze of fresh air, Prerna. This is first humorous post I have read so far since morning and thoroughly enjoyed. My guy also falls in the same category as your – a blend of romantic, hands on dad and responsible. And yes! Perfect husband…what’s that? 😉

  2. You forgot to include, ‘It Didn’t occur to me’ kind of husbands. 😉
    I am saying that because i have one. If i ask for something, he will get the world for me..but well, if i don’t then i might have to wait till eternity because it just doesn’t occur him. #FacePalm
    Nice humorous read and I look forward to reading ur witty blogs this september.

  3. As usual, another interesting, fresh post from your side. Mine falls under the same category as yours. Romantic+responsible+hands on. There is nothing like perfect or imperfect. Its all about going with the flow and changing as per the requirement.

  4. Hahaha my morning just got better with this post :p

  5. Ha, ha, ha! You’ve slotted them bang on! I guess mine would be a bit of all and one who drives me crazy with love and anger alternately! You could add another category – Mr Forgetful!

  6. So I can call my husband an eternal romantic, the apron guy and a hands on dad too!
    Hi Prerna…I’ve read your awesome pieces on momspresso and women’s web but visiting your blog for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed your post!!

  7. Well as per this my husband falls in responsible and hands on dad category..I must say you observed really well to list down the categories

  8. Hahaha! This is a fun post! Have seen all these types of husbands. Mine is The Apron Guy with a fetish to use BIG utensils and create mess but he cleans up later too and he’s also a Hand’s On Dad too.

  9. Haha that was awesome post for today, my husband is a mix of all I think it depends when it comes a situation. I am surely sharing this with him and ask him to guess which one should I choose 😂.

  10. but they are useful to have around — my favourite line of the entire post! Dad is the one who carries all the shopping bags so he’s definitely useful 😛
