I'm going to give you ladies an example of a conversation between a husband and wife. I want you to tell me what you think about it. I will use H for husband and W for wife. 

H: "I really want to go buy some cigarettes. Can I go buy some?"

W "I'm not sure how to answer that question. I don't want you to, but I also don't want to tell you no because I don't want you to think that I'm telling you what to do"

H: "So you are ignoring me"

W: "No, I'm telling you that I do not want you to go buy some but since you are an adult I can't tell you No."

H: "You are not answering me and once again I can not communicate with you."

W: "You have told me before not to tell you what to do because you will not tolerate your partner telling you what to do. So I'm trying to answer you question honestly without telling you what to do. How is that not communicating with you?"

H: "You are being very vague"

W: "Then in answer to your question. NO, I forbid you from buying cigarettes ever again"

H: "Don't you think you are being a little dramatic?"

I'd say the husband is being an ass.

Seems like the husband only wanted one answer but didn't get the answer the was happy with. I would have told him not to ask me a question if every answer but the one he wants to hear is wrong.
