communication issues? help

we cannot really talk about anything so anything important i have to email him and sometimes i don't get a reply.. i want to stop emailing but i feel like if i do then i will never be able to express how i feel.. we have been married 6 years and our communication still sucks. we are very non confrontational so we really don't bring up anything.. when i try to talk face to face about something he gets all defensive, even if it is a simple thing, like what do you want in a marriage... i don't know what to do.

  • wow, first thing is communication you two need to learn how to communicate. have u tried consouling? sometimes confrontation is nessacry, i understand where u come from me and my ex husband were like that, and when i did try to bring stuff up he got weird. anyway back to a counsolor, they might be able to help u guys communicate :) if u can't afford one, sometimes you can get counseling through a chruch or community program

  • Hey maybe you should both get a copy of The Art of War it will teach you strategies to discuss and be more assertive in your wants and needs . Maybe you should also write a list of what you really want from this relationship it helps. Writing what you want and talking about how you can achieve it together will help as well. Make a list for what you want and make a list together it can only help if you do it together.

  • i feel like i'm going down the same path with you. if i wanna talk with my BF-- it'll have to be through email. cuz we never spend time together and when we do- its just about sex. nothing else.
