I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX thoughtful reply.
I anticipate that my wife will object to counseling: for me, for her, for us. Having witnessed her extreme over-reactions to my infrequent efforts to sternly rebuff her, I have seen out-of-control actions to include: radical aimless cutting of her beautiful long hair, standing in front of a running shower with an electic heater--plugged in, attempting to kick out a sliding glass window with her bare feet, etc., et al. I share your suspicion that underlying causes are present and very active.
Could the onset of menopause be a factor here? She is 45. BTW, we have been married for about 1 year.
Many thanks for your suggestions,
