for the most part we do. the only misunderstanding that happen are when he is on deployment and we cannot talk face to face.
Absolutely! I mean, it isn't perfect, but nothing is. But what we do have works well for us!
We do sometimes. When I bring up a subject, he just says "good grief" or "jimmie crickets" he's not a talkative guy.
Quoting laurenb1:Honestly yes, but not all the time
When we first got together and first married we had awesome communication. Had one kid and it was hard to communicate. Got our stuff together and had another kid and then found out our lil boy (our first) was disabled and having to deal with all of that the stress went crazy and our communication fell apart. We are now back on track and we talk to each other as soon as we put the kids down for bed. We will take a shower or a bath together and just talk to each other about our day and what we want to do for the weekend and everything else.
He is a great communicator. I'm not. I'm trying really hard, and I've gotten better, but sometimes it takes alot for me to lay it all out there and say "You've hurt my feelings" or "this upset me". When I get mad I cry and I don't like to be seen as weak. I feel like crying means I"m weak. Idon't know why I feel that way, but its the way I am now. Tonight I'm in a pretty shitty mood, and he tried so hard to get it out ofme and I just shut down. I need to process things myself and be a big girl about things so I don't sound like a bumbling idiot..
not really. From my end it's 100%. His end it's 87%.
