Wonderful response, Sue! Thank you so much for offering your experience and thoughts.
That's why I love sparkpeople Teams - we all have differing experiences, and length of marriages, and can offer a variety of suggestions.
I agree that we can only change ourselves, and that adding some friends into the mix will probably be a healthy addition.
I remember reading a book called the Dance of Anger, and it had some great suggestions for stepping out of the dance that we get into out of habit, and changing the scenario.
Also, I knew of a book entitled, "How to Change Your Husband". Predictably, it was more about changing our perception of what it was he was doing!
Take care. And all the best to you as you struggle to communicate and work things out with your husband.
The smallest good deed is better than the grandest intention.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
