The hubs and I have a LOT of communication issues. I'm a talker, he's a stewer. When an issue comes up, I want to talk it out, brainstorm, figure out solutions. He hates to talk about things that upset him/stress him out, so he will refuse to talk to and just walk away. It's frustrating as hell, but he's finally (recently) acknowledged that yes, it is a problem. There's no compromise possible when one person just removes themselves from the discussion. So... marriage counseling, here we come. I'm hoping with 3rd party help, we'll be able to sort of...fuse our communication styles, so that maybe I talk at him a little less, and he opens up a little more.
