Tensions at home have been strained recently, due to this credit

Customer Question

Tensions at home have been strained recently, due to this credit crunch. Whilst i'm not overly concerned my wife is. however when i try to ask her what the problem is i just can't understand her reasoning. When i for an further explaination she gets upset and starts calling me either stupid/uncaring. It appeares i have a habit of asking the wrong question.. however this is mabe worse when she asks how i feel on certain subjects and i can find no answer. She puts great stock in such things and i don't. for example during a recent 'disscussion' at home my wife was discussing the possibility of emagrating. And despite the reasons for this i had no desire to move though i couldn't think of one real reason to stay, it just i don't want to move. I don't have a bucket full of friend or anything either. Is this a case for a marrage guidence counciler or a shrink?

Hello,

Are you asking if the disagreement about the move is cause for a counselor, or the disagreements in general?

This has just started recently? Anything set it off?

No this is not new, it happens a lot the move was an example. she'll ask how a feel on a multitude of things and to be honest i find it hard to answer either positivily or otherwise. The exception seems to be when some great change is suggested, i guess i'm not good with such things

Hello Rogue,

Thank you for that information.

You don't necessarily have to not be good with such things, can you tell me how long you have been married?

Are you both from the same place?

What are your ages?
