Reasons for family problems Family problems begin from the initial step of engagement when an unsuitable spouse is chosen. Men and women mostly seek an opposite companion to complete his or her character, but this is wrong. “It’s better to look for a character similar to you physically and spiritually because this will create better harmony between you and your spouse. People think this isn’t enough reason for problems, but it’s one of the major causes of problems,”. Ideas about manhood are another reason. Men from cultures teaching them to be tough and macho cause many husbands to treat their wives like adversaries rather than partners. The husband feels that he’s the boss and whatever he says goes, which is a result of a macho society. Arab men grow up with the idea that they must control and be heavy handed. They believe women are their possessions, so the wife must obey her husband without objection or expressing her opinion. Therefore, she feels must squeeze everything she can out of her husband. Some wives never show their husband that they are satisfied with anything he does or buys for them in order to trick him into doing and buying more. “Some husbands speak very harshly to their wives, humiliate them and even physically abuse them. Their wives have no voice or opinion in the family, so they feel they are unable to satisfy their husbands and themselves as well. Many husbands mostly are selfish; they always look for their own pleasure and neglect their wives’ emotions,”. Unfortunately and despite the difficulty of international communication, negative sexuality that traditionally and recently evolved in the West has penetrated Arab and Yemeni society’s moral fabric too, despite the difficulty of international communication. Now with improved means of communication and regular international contacts, modern Western speculation is virtually flooding Arab and Yemeni society, which leads to more problems between parents and the new generation. Many couples considering divorce due to infidelity are coming to all Arab countries and Yemen as well. When figuring out the main reasons for this phenomenon, it was found that a spouse’s carelessness and the large gap between husband and wife are enough reasons for unfaithfulness. What is surprising is that wives’ infidelity now has become more than husbands’, which means there’s a big problem men must search for and try to solve directly.
