There is a good book on the differences between the way men and women understand each other. "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" helps to identify the ways male and female communicate and perceive. Your wife might have needs that she doesn't necessarily want to have to "tell" you to meet. Some women want men to "automatically" know what the problem is and how to fix it. Some women are at an age "menopause" where all you can do is ride the waves of her emotions and hope for the best.
