  • my suggestion.
    1. wait to talk when you aren't yelling, but can talk calmly and rationally
    2. set boundaries... no bars (I don't allow that unless there is a bday party or special occasion. that is showing a lack of respect on his part. If he can't do this than I would leave until he can
    3. consider marriage counseling

  • well, if its between you and marriage counsewling, I think if he loves you he will at least try it out. My husband and I went through a rough ttime last year, we both worked through things and had to make compromises, putting eachother before our own preferences. It would be wise for him to work through things, even if it feels like a huge sacrifice. How I approached my husband was I told him if he wanted to make our marraige work he needed to proove it to me... like stop hanging out with single friends late at night at bars, and to go to counseling. He prooved to me that he was willing to make an effort to save our marraige.... and I had to make some huge sacrifices as well.

  • also, maybe that times is to hasve time alone to relax... lke an outlet from stress... maybe there can be another solution? For my husband bikr riding helps releive his stress, so I make sure to support that. There may be other alternatives for him.
