Russ0114 :

Hello and thank you for choosing just answer, I look forward to assisting you.

Russ0114 :

I can see that you're going through a very difficult time and my question to you is have the two of you identified where the root of all this anger stems from?

JACUSTOMER-1tgc0w8a- :

yes we have discussed what makes us want to hurt our feelings so bad, our children think its because we don't discuss our feelings but when we try to dig in deep boom argumen glaor my husband say,s its all me that i'm mental he really knows how to push my buttons.

Russ0114 :

I do apologize, I'm going to have to switch us over to the Q&A format as it seems the chat feature is not working properly, I am unable to see your response or my initial response(s) to you.

I think the both of you would benefit from speaking to a marriage counselor face to face if he's willing to do so. Also, it's easier for him to attack you than to take responsibility for any part that he has contributed. If the two of you are unable to discuss your issues in an appropriate/productive manner then you will never be able to move forward. However, this is something that both of you have to be willing to embark upon in order to really work on improving your communication and marriage.
