Before we get married, I think we need a bit of counseling for some smaller issues
Ok so long story short, I have a wonderful man I am engaged to!! If I make a list of the good/bad things about our relationship the good things much outweigh the bad!! But with that being said there are a few issues that I firmly believe could have an affect on our relationship in the future and have an affect now.
Heres my main problem, my guy is one of those men that does not talk a lot. He also has been "beat" up emotionally in the past to where he thinks that anytime anything is brought up to discuss it is confrontational and he will most of the time get defensive and cannot talk calmly about things.
I believe some couples counseling would be good for us but I asked him in the past about this and he said no, so how do I go about getting him to go so we can work these issues out to have a better relationship and to make him realize that communication can be a good thing?
I have tried talking with him about these issues but it gets me nowhere and he ends up getting stressed to the point where he has a panic attack and has to take anti anxiety meds. I do feel we need to resolve these issues to be able to have a happy marriage!! Any advice??
