Difference between girlfriend and wife?

I was watching a panel of men discuss dating and marriage the other day. One of the men stated that to a lot of men, there is not much difference between a girlfriend and a wife. Obviously, this got my attention because I always believed that men had “limited” loyalty to a girlfriend.

Maybe I am being naive but do some men really think that a girlfriend is equal to a wife? Do you believe that dating boyfriend/girlfriend relationships are comparable to an actual marriage?

What do you think is the difference between a girlfriend and wife or boyfriend or husband?

Happy Friday!

Men are just stupid and this is the reason most marriages break down because they think like this. WE all know they are weak especially when it comes to sex. This is the reason why they think there is no difference. What they feel in their weak minds that they can’t get from their wife, they know there is another woman they may call their girlfriend that they can get it from. All the time, not knowing that the girlfriend only want their money. These women are stupid to hold on to them for so long as a girlfriend because they don’t want to get married and when they finally do get married, they keep another woman on the side who is just as stupid as they are to give them what they want or they think they can’t get from home. It’s the other head that allows them to think like this, that’s why they are the stupid species.

Dang smartphone!

Men are all over in their maturaty levels as well. It is difficult to make sweeping generalizations just as it is in women. I for one, put way more effort into maintaining my relationship with my wife than I ever did with my girlfriends. The connection is much stronger with too many shared experiences that help bring us closer.

Diva there is a difference in girlfriend and wife because there are girlfriends and then there are wives. Nothing to be angry about….lol If you are a girlfriend then don’t let yourself get treated like the wife you’ll never be. If you are the wife then make sure you not treated like a girlfriend.

Good day!

There is no difference between girlfriend and wife until you have kids. There may be a difference on paper, but there is no difference in behavior until you have a totally dependent being for the two of you to develop and support. That’s when the commitment you made a marriage becomes reality.

A girlfriend Is someone that you can have fun and a good time with. The guy does not feel “trapped”.
Some people simply do not relate well in close relationships.
Now let us take the secret service guys. They have the responsiblity for making the President secure. If they had wives they would be a distraction from their responsiblities. They are on the go, hither and yon.
On occasion they want a girl to relax with, share themselves with so they have to look around where ever they are for[a temporary wife].
I think you understand. Some people simply do not understand a temporary wife so they call it a girlfriend.

I agree. I would have never married my husband if I felt I had “limited” loyalty. The difference between boyfriend/girlfriend and husband/wife is the marriage certificate and covenant commitment made before God/judge or God/family, friends, etc. You have to feel that commitment in your heart as a girlfriend/boyfriend first.

Sorry Tawani, but maybe your attitude of “men are just stupid” could be the root cause of some of your frustrations. Maybe it’s just the men that you attract (or are attracted to) that are just stupid.

So. Married 21 years. Wife vs. Girlfriend? Difference: I KNOW that 20 years from now my wife and I will still be married. Similarities: I still make a daily decision to date my wife and convince her that I’m the one (that one works both ways).

If you and your spouse never stop “dating” once married you’re gonna last longer. (And have more fun).

I had heard this before too, but was able to ask for clarification. The gentleman sharing this with me had said (effectively) there is no difference in the woman’s behavior between wife and girlfriend, only their level of commitment to one another. He expected his girlfriend to want to be and behave the same way as his wife, and that by marrying her, the only difference was he was committing to take care of/love her forever.

The two roles are NOT equal and its a fine line to play your role accordingly as a girlfriend before getting wife access. It could backfire and feelings could be hurt if one is over extending her role playing as if…………#itiswhatitis

When you are dating, each person has to keep doing the things that brought them together, because there is always the possibility that the other will not stand for it and walk away. In marraige, some parties have the attitude of “I can do and act any way that I want, because he/she is married to me. To walk away will cost big time.” In my experience, I dated a lady for 5 years that made me feel like I was in a fantasy world. She was simply spectacular on all fronts. Then we got married…..and things rapidly changed. She complained, whined, ordered me around, sex became a chore for her, gained a lot of weight. I thought “Who IS this person?”. The marriage lasted 6 years and I will never make that mistake again. The rumors of marraige….are….true. You can debate all you want, justify, rationalize, try to explain, etc. about how it isn’t always this way or (and this is the most popular comment among the ladies) “Maybe you stopped doing the things you did when you dated!”, but women look at marraige as a finish line, not the continuation of a relationship. The race is over, you have crossed the finish line and now you can do whatever, whenever, say whatever, act whatever you feel like. After all, he can’t leave you now….until he does.

Morning.

It’s amazing how some feel there is no difference between gf and wife. The difference is (1)THE TITLE; (2) the perks (i.e, doing laundry, cooking, cleaning to name a few); (3) “legally” united and recognized by law enabling one to have and receive more benefits as the spouse.

“…but women look at marraige as a finish line, not the continuation of a relationship.”

@Rick ~ those women don’t stay married. The woman committed to her marriage doesn’t see a finish line. She sees the joyful commingling of two lives where dating and loving one another is still part of the big picture.

limited loyalty to a girlfriend? heck, I know countless men also have limited (or selective) loyalty to their wives but I won’t even go into all that (and so we don’t have the double standard debate this early I also know countless women who have selective loyalty as well). do men recognize a difference between a wife and girlfriend? sure but if you get the wifey benefits from the girlfriend why not take advantage of the situation especially if you don’t want to be married? make it do what it do.

Wise Diva wrote – ” I always believed that men had “limited” loyalty to a girlfriend”

My response – Nope, its actually the women who, admittedly, say they like to limit things with a man until marriage. The women on this blog have already stated this on the other day’s blog.

Wise Diva wrote – ” Maybe I am being naive but do some men really think that a girlfriend is equal to a wife?

My response – for the most part, yes. If you are truly are girlfriend, then yes, in our minds, you are the wifey. a big difference between the two has a lot to do with the third-party, majority-party, permission-slip, contract the husband and wife signs-on to with their government (marriage license).

Wise Diva wrote – “Do you believe that dating boyfriend/girlfriend relationships are comparable to an actual marriage?

My response – nope, the relationship is what proceeds the actual marriage. Men get married to keep said relationship with a woman and to prevent other men from trying, while women get married because they want to get married. If men can keep the relationship with a woman in perpetuity, without marriage, we wouldn’t get married in most cases.

Ok, Mike P, since this is your stance, do you act husbandlike to your wifey gf? You can’t expect her to act wifey if there’s no husbandlike behavior on your part. And no, can’t assume because you feel they go hand in hand, you’re doing what “husbands” do. Just curious.

lady – I don’t think it’s an age thing. it’s personal and based on what you want. some folks grow up wanting marriage. some folks never even really have it on their radar. some folks would never dream of a long-term shacking up relationship and others could care less if they shacked ‘til death do they part’. all I really meant is that if one party wants marriage and the other party doesn’t that the party who doesn’t might as well ride the ride for as long as they can.

shaunie – you wrong. I won’t out and out say I’d rather have his money but I will say I don’t want a broke man’s heart.

Key is, after becoming a husband/wife, still focusing on your partner as if you aren’t “locked in”. Once one of both of you start taking the other for granted, and stop being “good” to the other person (whatever that means to your partner), the marriage will become stale and lifeless.

If that happens before marriage, then it’s easy to leave the relationship and move on. Not so easy, afterwards.

An old saying goes that applies to both the men and the women “Pay attention to how things are when you are dating, the things you like, the things that bother you and the things you dislike, because when you are dating, that’s the best that it’s ever going to be.” Truer words have never been spoken.

Sadly there is no difference between a girlfriend and a wife. Society has dumb down marriage esp in the US as if it’s a big joke. Only thing that separates gf from wife is ink on a piece of paper and that can be cancelled at a drop of a dime. Most gf are doing wifly(sp) duties with pleasure and thinking nothing about it.

in it’s simplest form, the difference between a girlfriend and a wife is sin.

just to put a certain perspective on it, perhaps the gents in that discussion were trying to say that SPECIAL gf (not the fling), means as much to them as a wife. i say this because s/o has made it clear by word and action that we are already his family. he regards us and treats us as such. he’s not waiting for the vows to dedicate himself at that level. i suppose it’s possible that’s what these guys are trying to say, but i’m assuming they didn’t mean for it to apply to EVERY gf. *shrugs*

lady – everything isn’t black and white but some things are. following topic, either you are married or you are not married. can’t stand when folks put themselves out as single because they are separated. separated is still married. can’t stand when folks claim their significant other’s family members as in-laws when they are not married. can’t stand when folks say they might as well be married. I’m like well if you feel that way you might as well GET married.

Morning lovelies,

Wow….where to start?

Difference between gf and wife? Honor, what czBrat said and responsibility…IMO And leaning to what disco said, I don’t really get too many folks that are bragging on marriage because much of the married population don’t honor it no way…in some form or another, with cheating being “up there.” And if you’re cheating or a cheater on your spouse, obviously that role is not meaning all that much to you either. It doesn’t matter to me how another person views, I’m going with what I know and believe.

What’s up with these folks that are constantly humming the I must be catered to after marriage tune? Maybe that’s why some of the folks cut out…lol Once you bring kids and other stuff in it, whose got time to rock you like a baby? I’m just saying. I would think because I can’t concretely say, that with combined lives, there’s a shift and adjustment in one’s way of thinking. No, sex and intimacy shouldn’t run and jump out of the window but at the same time, there are other things going on aside from just you and your needs. Prioritize maybe but selfishly catering too…not so much. And again….just my opinion and how it reads to me.

@czBrat and Leggs: good morning to both of you… what I was trying to say was that if the man is a real, stand-up dude, myself included, then we’re gonna treat our girlfriends the same way we would if we were to marry her, listen to me please, when we truly open our hearts, and I mean truly open it for you, we don’t hold back anything, if we in, we in, if we ain’t, we ain’t, a signed piece of paper isn’t gonna change that, and it really is that simple. It usually the woman herself or the very notion of losing the woman we opened up to that make us want to get married, we don’t desire to get married for the sake of getting married. Think about it, whenever you ask your male friends if they want to get married, usually they will say NO!!! unless he already has someone in mind. but when you ask your female friends that same question, they say yes even if the woman doesn’t have anyone in there lives at the moment.

@czBrat: the fling is NOT the girlfriend. If you hear guys say that, its all marketing hype, believe that!

I have an aunt (okay another story…lol), beautiful woman whose husband left her early in their marriage and never came back. He had girlfriends and eventually married. He worked for Ford up until the time of his death. I don’t believe as he died in his early 60s but he consciously NEVER changed her from being the beneficiary. NEVER. The second wife tried to contest but there was nothing she could do. My aunt got it all…..everything. Funny thing was he went to work for Ford after they divorced. If I’m not mistaken he left within two years of their marriage.

She always said well, he wouldn’t take care of me and keep with his duties in life so, he did it in death.

I think he loved her but during that time in his life the streets had a hold of him.

Morning All!

I cannot believe these dudes are saying there is no difference between a gf & a wife!! I CANNOT believe it!! I remember them saying just the opposite on so many occasions!! I’ve heard that even among my male friends too. There is a distinct difference between the 2. A few of the men I dated made sure I understood the difference. In turn, I made sure they understood THEY didn’t get the same rights & priviledges a hubby would have(as Mike P stated in his first post). It was not just intimacy, but other things. For example, until the ring and the signed papers, did NO laundry for a dude. That is just one of those wifely things I refused to do for a bf. Believe me, if you don’t make sure those lines are not blurred in the least, a person will take full advantage, yet leave you out of the IMPORTANT distinctions, like insurance coverage and the like.

There are plenty of people that don’t want marriage and that’s perfectly okay for them. But until I got the ring and the date was set, certain wife perks were not allowed. Don’t even fix your mouth to say that “it’s just a piece of paper” mess to me.

I do believe, like Mike P said, that if a person loves and cares and is committed in their heart to you, they will treat you like a wife/hubs while dating. It may sound contridictory, but it’s kinda like you’re married in your head before you make it legal. For example, you won’t go sleeping with someone else and say “well I don’t have a ring on my finger” as the excuse for cheating.

Mike P

April 20th, 2012

@Leggs: And there’s the skinny of it all!!! the man you are dating SHOULD already be of husband material (I’m taking about his personality and characteristics, and not his physical possessions). that is, if your desires are to be married with the man, date only those who are marriage-worthy. If you date anyone else for any other reason, then you all cannot complain about the end result that’s gonna be full of struggle, longings, dis-contentment, disharmony, emptiness, and pain without the payout being worthwhile.

One other thing leggs, you get what’s coming to you, AND you get what you PAY for. If GOD requires you to open up completely (heart not legs) before you can receive your heart’s desire, it would well serve you to relent. and don’t expect a man to be the one simply because you’re sexually excited about him or sexually active with him or because of the chemistry or whatever the other excuses people like to use.

Leggs/Brat – Ironic, I was just talking to sis & brother about Dark Shadows. We are very disappointed they are making the movie a comedy. Johnny Depp is a good choice for Barnabus, but the trailer is silly. Sorry about Jonathan Frid. He has a cameo in the upcoming movie too.

Brat – My older sister watched Dark Shadows when it was on originally and me & my younger brothers watched the old reruns on channel 17 Superstation. When I got older, I used to rent the series from Blockbuster. It was off the chain.

I happened to be talking about how much I loved that series & how I can’t get into these new vampires to hubs. He is a movie buff and got the extended trailer and showed it to me. I was hurt kinda. But I’ll go see it to show my loyalty to Barnabus. I’m not happy though, and sis is hurt too!

I’ve never been into horror/slasher type flicks but I do appreciate a good suspense type movie. I remember telling my son about children of the corn (the original one). he watched it and proclaimed that if we were afraid of that we were some punks. the movie itself may not have been that scary but the music still gives me the creeps.

I think folks should be themselves & be honest with the people they date. You don’t want anything serious, then say that and also ACT like it…You want something serious/marriage, then speak and act it too. The problems all stem from folks with the playing game mindset or always trying to get over mindset. Folks are just so damn selfish & greedy these days. Then you wonder why folks flip the eff out on yo ass when they find out you’ve played them for a fool. I’m going to be me, I want you to be you and if we mesh then let’s ride this till the wheels fall off.

Frankly it’s the wrong audience….he should sit men down and keep it real. Don’t be selling to women all the things they need to do to get and snag a man. How about a conversation on having cake, ice cream AND getting to eat it too.

I think the whole “act” like a man I guess is suppose to send a message to women on how to keep above the rift raft and getting bamboozled and falling prey. Most of what I found though in his teachings translates to hoop hopping. NO CAN DO. But yes it can get tiring dodging bullcrap. Asking folks though to be honest and now have at it, in everything their little hearts desire is too much like right.

But here’s the thing: Guys don’t give a rat’s azz about relationships. We can just hang out with our boys and find random trim to keep us occupied and be perfectly content. The only time we think about relationships is when we meet a woman that we like so much that we don’t want to let her get away. So, we’re not looking for a woman to fulfill some longing we have for a relationship. It’s the other way around for us — once we meet a woman that we want to hang on to, we will commit to the relationship because we don’t want to be without her.

Generally, guys will respect a wife more than a girlfriend. A woman who expects a relationship to progress pass girl friend/boy friend repects herself more. If women will let the guys get the benefits of a wife without the commitment of a wife, why should a guy make her his wife. We (guys) are very focused on our priorities.

That’s my biggest gripe, Lady. Manners, attire, eye contact, show a level of appreciation. I was quite alarmed. And, they’re greedy. How do you put 3 chicken breasts on your plate when there’s 60 other people to feed.

Nope, I wouldn’t call myself a guru by any means. I just like to stay on top of it all. I love working out and I find it necessary to changes things up, so I go and explore for new things to try. And if I like something, I will incorporate it into my routine.

I did various forms of yoga, and I gotta say, “im swiss” ain’t kidding about it being harder than it looks!

slim/swiss – i’ve been practicing yoga over 8 years. you really have to try different styles, settings and instructors to find the one that suits you. otherwise it can be incredibly boring. just this week the place i attend added a new instructor. she uses a very dark room, soft instruction tone and long holds. i never broke a sweat and damn near fell asleep in resting pose a few times. not good!

and yes. s/o gets a big kick out of watching me practice at home and deciding which poses he’s going to put to good use.

Slim — Mrs. Swiss does the hot yoga & loves it — says she can get more loose & go further with her poses in the heat. Then again, she’s from Haiti, so she’s right at home it the heat. My azz would pass out just walking through the door.

czBrat — Um… yeah…. I tried going to yoga classes w/ Mrs. Swiss a couple of times and had to stop for fear of catching a public indecency charge from checking her out. :lol: Every pose she does, I’m seeing her butt nekkid in my mind… :lol:

I’d say the difference between girlfriend and wife is that one’s wife can also be the girlfriend, but the girlfriend absolutely isn’t also the wife. Marriage should be more than a legal agreement; it should be a covenant with God. And, the relationship should be enhanced by marriage, not degraded due to taking each other for granted, or stop trying, stop growing together.

@kimmie ~ I sure did. I knew his right hand man was dirty. I even think he planted that audio of the President. Olivia looked foolish actually going to meet him at their “spot.” Just goes to prove no matter how smart you are, your heart has you doing some dumbass stuff. To take on his mistress as a client and learn all the details has to be difficult, but she asked for it (more for selfish reasons than actually needing to know everything).
