  • I think you are going about this the wrong way. Having been married for 45 years, 11 months, and 25 days, I've learned a few things about men and how they think. I've also learned a lot about being happy, even when everything is not going the way I think it should. I have been taught rather sternly that giving to my husband is the surest way to get from him what I need and desire. I'm not being hard on you because I started out the same way as where you are right now. And it took me a long time, I'm ashamed to say, to learn to go about things differently. The secret is to take what he gives you (i.e. a trip to the water park) and make him feel like he's the most special man in all the world for thinking of it. Then when you need something from him, remind him of what a special thing he did today and tie that to what you need from him. Men crave appreciation and respect and they respond very well to it, that's all.

  • actually Kfree
    You've made more progress than alot of women out there
    You've already come to the point where you now know you can do nothing to change it. Or him.
    How many women spend their lifetimes trying to change the people around them?
    GL with all of it.

  • I hate to say this, but I don't think he's too concerned with how you feel or what you say. So turn the tables. Don't care what he says for a while and go do your own things with the kids, and/or even by yourself. Don't get lost in his problems....your still an individual too.
