What would you do (venting)

  • Well ask yourself why he is flying off the handle? Perhaps emailing him or writing it down would help. Or explain to him that it's important that you talk through this and how much it means to you.

  • Ask him for an appointment time when he may feel like talking about it. I had to do that with my husband when he was absolutely hating the topic I needed to discuss. Ask him if Friday or whatever would be a good time and tell him to like to discuss it. Let him get prepared so he doesn't feel attacked.

  • So you want him to do what you want to do without considering his feelings about it? That's just selfish. Go talk to your pastor or a friend

  • Maybe ask him why he won't discuss it with you, and that you just need to clarify a few things. If it's something you already know the answer to as why he won't talk about it, you just might have to give it a rest until a really good time presents itself. If you don't know the reason, then maybe ask how he'd feel if the shoe was on his foot so to speak, and see how he takes that, maybe that will make him think it over a little more. Good luck.

  • Ask yourself why it is so important for you to talk about this particular subject. Is it just because you know he doesn't want to talk about it and if you make him talk about it anyway that somehow makes you a bigger person? I think you know the answers already that you are trying to force him to give you. I think it is wrong to keep bringing it up. Just act on the knowledge you do have-and if he asks you about it-just tell him that you gave him the chance to talk about it-he wouldn't so you had to act on what you knew to be the facts that were available to you at the time.
