May I please request that if you find the service I provided helpful at all that you rate me with three or above? Your rating is the only way I am reimbursed for my answer. Thank you so much!
Sincere thanks for your advice. We have had discussions when we had calmed down. However I've lost faith in her answers and it might be showing on my face. I will take your advice and listen earnestly and acknowledge her feelings more distinctly. I seldom listen when I'm angry. Many a time my eyes have welled up in emotion but hardly any visible emotional response from her. the insensitivity is intolerable.
You're welcome!I am sorry that you are being hurt by your wife in this way. Whatever is causing her to react to you like this most likely has a lot more to do with something other than you and your marriage. People do not typically act in such a way unless there is a good reason. And if she was just upset at you, she could easily work to resolve it.It may help you to take a time out when there is a disagreement or she is being angry with you. Let her know in a gentle way that you need some time to calm down. Then get out for a bit. She is going to need to accept that what she is doing is hurting you deeply and that sometimes there will be consequences.This may help you:http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/rewire-your-brain-love/201008/four-ways-respond-during-argument http://www.guidetopsychology.com/pmr.htm And if she will not go to therapy with you, consider going on your own. You need the support right now and time to talk about what you would like to do about the situation. Kate
