bad communication

Post  James on Sun Mar 29, 2009 7:11 pm

I know that men have the reputation for not wanting to talk about feelings, but I really like to discuss personal issues with my wife. Here is the problem. When I have to talk with her about a problem, she is enormously defensive to the extent of being ridiculous. She'll storm out of the room or she'll turn her anger on me and I'm stunned. I really want to be a good communicator but it is crazy that we can't talk about the simplest differences without her having a meltdown. I'm pulling away.

communication is a two way street. i'm glad for your sake that you like to talk things out and assuming that you are reasonable when you talk it sounds like your wife is pretty immature. i wouldn't stop speaking my mind but i also wouldn't get drawn in by circular arguments. that's what she'd probably like to see you do so it would give her the excuse to keep on huffing out of the room.
