What do you do when...

Your husband is ALWAYS negative. In the last 4 years I think i've heard him say something positive only a handful of time...literally. Maybe ONE was to me.

  • If it bothers you, you need to tell him and if he can't or won't change then maybe you need a change!

  • Try to find out why he's been so cranky, and then help him fix it.

  • If it bothers you, tell him about it. See if you can get him to see your side of it. OR If he's going to act out like a child, then maybe he should be treated lie a child.

  • I would tell him, that I was tired of him being so negative. That I can't stand it anymore, that he is going to have to work on it, get some counseling, do whatever he needs to. But, that I cannot and will not put up with the negative attitude anymore, and he has to work on it!

  • It's got to be depressing for you, right? Find out why he's such a grumpy butt and try to help him out. If it's just his personality then I guess I'd just be happy for the both of us.

  • I'm not sure I'm much help. Mine is always negative. I can run all over town for him, do what he wants, clean, cook and the minute he sees me he says "why didn't you ______?" I have an aversion to shopping and ordering pizza because he always critizes me. He'll tell me "I don't care what pizza you get" and so I try to get what I think he wants and he'll say "why did you get that?!". I tell him to stop and he never does. Heck I was on the phone with him and I asked him something and he treated me like I was the dumbest person on the planet. Then he asked me later why I got off the phone so quickly with him and I said he was rude to me. He spent the rest of the night pissed off at me for saying that! He used to be nice to me but things are changing fast.

  • If after 4 years, and he hasn't changed from being a negative person, then a change is needed...if it isn't in him then maybe you should find it in you...It isn't a good feeling to be around someone who's always negative....
