It's hard to understand where this man is coming from.

how does your tone of voice sound when you talk to him? He is possibly hurt inside, & seeking unconditional respect.

I agree with this rely. Have to look for the red flags and act on them . Now, I advise to make it work - learn to communicate together more productively. May need outside counseling.

Sounds like maybe you just need to vent, but if you have some questions or would like to elaborate a bit, I hope you post again.

HI Mystery,

Wow, it sounds like this guy has not learned much from his previous marriages. Silent treatments are childish, unproductive and not good for a marriage.

I don't know what to tell you. If he hasn't learned decent communication skills by now, sounds like you'll just have to live with it or chose not to be with him. I doubt he'll change.

How long have you been married?
