What is wrong with my husband?
I am a almost 40yr woman married to a 47yr old man. Ever since we got together our communication levels just stunk, and still do. I try to talk to him about things that bother me or I feel that I do 90% of housework, kids, and school stuff..... Where my husband does 10%. He cooks and occasionally cleans house and the kitchen. We have no communication skills whatsoever and when I bring up a subject I think needs to be addressed, he immediately takes offensive to what I need him to listen to and starts to Yell, Stomps his feet around house loudly and storms out the door while slamming the door behind him. To me that is ignoring the questions and acting like a 3 yr old! Then when he returns back home, he acts like all is fine in the world as long as I dont bring that subject up again. Please help cause this has been going on for about 10 years now, and we have been together for 13 years, I m really ready to throw in the towel here.
Unless he will go to marriage counseling with you, I suspect nothing will change, and you might as well throw in the towel.
He is obviously terrified of authentic communication.
